We are proud and excited to announce that Dr. David Josephitis (Dr. Joe) has joined Shapiro Medical Group on a full-time basis starting July of 2013.

He has been working with Dr. Ron and Dr. Paul on a part-time basis for the past year and a half, but more specifically, he has been getting more of the hands on training and experience since January of 2013.

Dr. Joe has experience with strip as well as FUE procedures. We feel his personality, philosophy on hair restoration, and ethics fit nicely with our group.

If you would like more info on Dr. Joe, please read the attached PDF file of his bio.

We are looking forward to posting his results as soon they are available.



Dr. David Josephitis is a full time hair restoration surgeon working with both men and women suffering from hair loss. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS).
After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, Dr. Josephitis spent a year at the University of Amsterdam focusing on biology and foreign studies. He earned his medical degree from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Then, immediately following his Internal Medicine training at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, and after becoming board certified in Internal Medicine, he began his specialty training in Hair Transplantation Surgery. Dr. Josephitis completed a fellowship in Hair Transplantation Surgery at one of the few ISHRS recognized fellowships clinics. After over five years of experience in the full - time practice of hair restoration, Dr. Josephitis joined the practice of Shapiro Medical Group in Minneapolis, MN with Drs. Ron and Paul Shapiro.

Dr. Josephitis was drawn to hair transplantation because it is one of the few specialties that requires both an analytical and an aesthetic mind. "I have always enjoyed creating," he said, "hair transplant surgery gives me the unbelievable opportunity to actually recreate a person's physical appearance and, at the same time, help improve their overall sense of confidence and self-esteem." The basis from which Dr. Josephitis draws his medical philosophy has always been to be a great surgeon in addition to an outstanding physician. "I believe there is a benefit in a hair transplant surgeon having both a medical and surgical background," he stated, "As a surgeon, I can give the patient the most natural looking transplant the industry has to offer. As a physician, I get to enjoy great relationships with my patients as their hair loss specialist. And, with my background in Internal Medicine, I can assure the patient that he or she is an appropriate surgical candidate." For Dr. Josephitis, the most satisfying aspect of being a hair transplant surgeon is relieving his patients of the burden they feel when losing their hair. "Hair loss is a serious and troubling issue that many deal with on a daily basis," he said, "I enjoy taking this strain and concern out of a person's life and making their hair a non-issue.

In addition to being a diplomat of the ABHRS, Dr. Josephitis is also a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). He has also lectured and performed surgeries at the society's live surgery workshops. At these ISHRS - sponsored workshops, beginners and advanced surgeons alike get a chance to learn and perfect the art and science of the specialty.

Can we get some more examples of Dr. Josephitis work? Really disappointed in the lack of updates here recently.

Hi Hdude,
We're attempting to put results up on the forums. We frankly haven't had the time to put results on the forums but I do have at least a dozen results that need posting. We appreciate your interest.

That would be great as I'm strongly considering Dr. Josephitis but it's hard to vet his work if no results are posted.
