History of Hair Transplant Surgery

The story of hair transplant surgery for people suffocating from hair loss begins in Japan. In 1939, dermatologist Dr. Okuda became the first physician to conceive of a medical procedure to harvest and transplant hair from one area of the body to another. Today, that concept remains unchanged.
