He is known around the world for this. In 2003 and 2010, he helped write a major medical book called Hair Transplantation, 4th Edition (published by Marcel Dekker). Many people think this book is the “Bible” of hair transplantation. It’s used by doctors all over the world. International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) gave a special award to Dr. Shapiro in 2005, when they met in Australia and also the Golden Follicle Award was given to him. This award is given to people who have made a big difference in the way hair transplant surgery is done in the real world.
It was in 1997 that Dr. Shapiro became a Diplomate with the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. This means that he was one of the first doctors in the United States to do this (ABHRS). After that, he was chosen to serve on the Board of Governors for ISHRS, the world’s largest hair restoration surgery group. Dr. Shapiro was the first doctor to show his peers how to do Microscopic Follicular Unit Transplantation in a live surgery at the ISHRS annual meeting in Las Vegas in 1995. Since then, he has been chosen every year to speak and show live surgical demonstrations at both national and international conferences every year. There have been over 40 conferences where he has given talks. Dr Shapiro have also given talks in more than 25 cities around the world. Currently, there are a lot of hair transplantation websites and blogs on the Internet about hair transplantation that list Dr. Shapiro as a top doctor in his field. It’s clear from the discussion forums on these websites that patients are very happy with the care that they get from the doctors and with the care that the staff gives them. Dr. Shapiro is on staff at the University Of Minnesota Department Of Dermatology as an Adjunct Assistant Clinical Instructor. He often gives lectures to residents about the procedure he performs and how it works.
