I recently met Dr True and his wife at the ISHRS conference in Amsterdam.He is a great person to chat with and i`d like to say it was a pleasure meeting him.

Below is a summary of Dr. True

If one wanted to illustrate the extraordinary level of surgical professional that is attracted to hair restoration, we could do no better than introduce Dr. Robert H True. Hair restoration is a fast-growing discipline with an increasing public profile which requires high calibre surgical professionals to advance its theory and clinical practice. Robert does both and is also an active researcher. He brings a wealth of experience and a rich medical background to the field. Based in New York, Robert is Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and a recognised authority on hair loss.



Robert (who goes by Bob) did his undergraduate study at the University of Wyoming which he followed with a Bachelor of Science from McGill University (Montreal, Canada). He received his medical degree from McGill University Faculty of Medicine and pursued postgraduate training at the University of Illinois, the Mayo Clinic and John Hopkins. He also had a distinguished career as the Director of Emergency Medicine for St. Francis and as a decorated Clinical Director with the US Public Health Service Commission Corps.



Robert was introduced to surgical hair restoration in 1991 by R.M. Elliott, MD. Fascinated with the blend of artistry and detailed technique required, he was immediately drawn to the practice. He spent six months working daily with Dr. Elliott in a clinical preceptorship prior to beginning full time hair restoration practice in New York in 1992. He has performed more than 18,000 procedures, and is proud to count among his patients men and women from many nations and occupations as well as many well-known personalities.



Robert has presented at many major professional meetings in the US and abroad and published in professional journals on a broad range of topics related to hair restoration. At the most recent ISHRS meeting in Amsterdam he present a novel approach combining FUT and FUE in the same procedure. Robert has appeared on the Discovery Channel, Fox, PBS, Lifetime, ABC News and has recently worked with the NBC Today show. Among the first physicians to be certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery., he serves as an examiner and director for that body and will be the President of the ABHRS in 2010.



Robert is senior partner of the True & Dorin Medical Group P.C. Dr. True and Dr. Dorin €™s private practice is located in Manhattan with satellite offices throughout the Northeastern US, and is devoted solely to surgical hair restoration and medical therapy of hair loss. In addition to being partners, Dr True is also Dr. Dorin €™s mentor in hair restoration, a relationship that began when Dr. Dorin was DR. True €™s patient while still in medical residency.

I can honestly say that he is a superb physician with some outstanding results to back up that statement. I have seen many cases of his work and recently met a patient of his that had a fantastic looking hairline. Now that I see he is a fellow Canadian (or atleast schooled there) it explains it all.

I dont disagree with a word of that. I too met Dr True and was very impressed with his level of interest and concern for his patients. He was genuinely concerned with doing first rate work that matched his patients expectations, in my opinion. However, I'm not a patient of his and cannot confirm this.

And to DR. Elliot's credit, he broke off his partnership with Dr. Robert Thomas of Chicago. That man had one goal: To work on as many patients a day as he could while convincing them he knew what he was doing. He was very good at both.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. True in Alaska which I found him to be passionate about hair. He was very detailed about the FUE procedure and the instruments he uses. Great results from Dr. True!!!
