Hair transplantation is more effective and affordable than ever. Further advancement of the industry, however, requires widespread training and patient advocacy. The spread of new techniques is progressing. However, continuing focus on access and education is vital to ensure best practices and favorable results.     

To this end, globally renowned specialists Drs. Christian Bisanga and John Cole are proud to announce the Bisanga Cole Hair Transplant Group’s formation. A state of the art clinic is under construction in Athens, Greece and there are currently plans to open a Milan, Italy location this summer.   

In Athens, the Bisanga Cole Hair Transplant Group will both offer unsurpassed hair transplants and quality training to interested medical professionals. Of major note, the University of Patras’ Department of Dermatology is partnering with FUE Europe under the direction of Dr. Bisanga, Dr. Cole, and Dr. Zontos to facilitate training in their summer school program. Surgeons who show promise and talent will be further encouraged through continuing programs that foster the skill sets and knowledge a top hair transplant surgeon must possess.      

The Bisanga Cole Hair Transplant Group will feature the talents of several renowned and experienced surgeons. Joining Drs. Bisanga and Cole are Drs. Yiannis Venetsanos, Krystallia Kyparissou, and Filippo Calcagni. The group further plans to train additional surgeons and assistants and invite them into the group with time.

Hair transplantation has advanced, yes. The increase in demand, unfortunately, has also incentivized less scrupulous clinics to exploit patients’ hopes and trust. Such clinics are prone to favor nations that lack malpractice laws or otherwise have difficulty enforcing them, though many inexpert surgeons also operate in nations known for stringent medical regulations. Patients who choose such clinics often struggle with disastrous results: unnatural hairlines, donor hair depletion, major scarring, and worse.  

Encouraging the results patients deserve requires greater access to training and industry channels. Reputed for their expertise and industry involvement, Drs. Bisanga and Cole have been training top hair transplant surgeons for decades. Partnering with institutions like the University of Patras both enables surgeons considering hair transplantation and increases awareness of best practices. Interested patients and medical professionals should stay tuned to learn more as the year develops!
