Dr. Alan S. Feller, D.O. has specialized in Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) since its early inception in 1994; and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) since its introduction in the U.S. in 2002.
He was born, raised, attended medical school, and practices in New York. Dr. Feller’s early adoption and refinement of ultra refined hair transplant advances has garnered him a reputation as a leading edge hair transplant physician. His well documented results and numerous patient accolades on discussion forums have made him a favorite choice among patients who have done extensive online research.
Dr. Feller entered the field of hair transplantation shortly after receiving his medical credentials from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine at New York Institute of Technology. He is a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) since 1995 and has been a featured guest lecturer at ISHRS meetings. He has also authored published academic papers on the topic of hair transplantation as well as tissue regeneration. He is also an inventor of newly patented instrumentation and protocols for the hair transplant field.
Through the years, Dr. Feller has trained several physicians from both the U.S. and abroad in the intricacies of modern hair transplantation techniques. He continues to offer professional seminars and workshops to physicians and their technicians in his Great Neck office.
Dr. Feller prides himself on always being on the cutting edge of hair transplantation technology and maintains a well-stocked research and development laboratory. He is the inventor of “Cardioscope”- a new kind of heart monitor; the “Feller Gynescope”-a device for detecting pre-cancerous states in women; “shatter valve technology” for implantable devices, “inductive-deflation” for implantable devices.
Most recently Dr. Feller completed the filing, office actions, and administrative requirements for U.S. Patents on new Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) instrumentation and protocols to facilitate graft removal from the donor area without the use of a standard scalpel. Some of this technology was featured in the 4th edition of “Hair Transplantation”, the authoritative text of the hair transplant field. Two of these new patents will issue before the end of 2006.To learn more about Dr. Alan Feller, visit their hair restoration website
