Dr Robert True is widely recognized globally as an outstanding hair restoration surgeon and an important leader in the field of hair restoration surgery. Among his many surgical innovations and scientific contributions to the field he is considered one of the most important pioneers of FUE (Follicular Unit Excision) having begun to develop the technique as early as 2001 and contributing many refinements since. He is one of the most active teachers of HRS in the world.
Dr True received his medical training from some of the most prestigious institutions in the world including McGill Faculty of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, and University of Illinois.
After his early career devoted to underserved peoples in the US, Africa, Asia, and Southeast Asia he became interested in hair restoration surgery, which he has practiced exclusively since 1991.
He is a recommended surgeon by the American Hair Loss Council and the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgery. He is a past president of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, Scientific Program Director of the ISHRS, member of the Board of Governors of the ISHRS, and Editor Emeritus of the Hair Transplant Forum International.
In his practice in New York City with Dr Robert Dorin over 25,000 surgeries have been performed. Their staff of highly skilled nurses and technicians average over ten years of experience.
True and Dorin is a patient centered practice. Their primary focus is the satisfaction and long-term welfare of their patients. As Dr True often says, “Treatment of hair loss is not a one-shot deal. We are committed to a comprehensive long-term approach that will assure life-long success for our patients.” They have extensive experience in treating men, women, transgender, and patients of all ethnicities.
They also always keep at the forefront of treatment techniques. Among their current treatment offerings are: FUE with the Trivellini and Devroye devices (which are the most advanced), beard and body hair harvesting and transplantation, eyebrow reconstruction. Although FUE is their most common technique, they also offer highly refined strip harvest procedures and scalp scar reductions.
They use a wide array of bio-enhanced treatment approaches, such as PRP/Acell, Autologous Stem Cell Therapy, Photo biomodulation, and advanced tissue holding solutions such as Hypothermasol and Liposomal ATP. They refer to vetted and highly skilled practitioners for Scalp Micropigmentation.
In addition, they offer a sophisticated approach to medical management with finasteride and minoxidil, both topical and oral, and as uniquely crafted compound topicals that combine other active ingredients such as retinoic acid, latanoprost, and anti-inflammatory agents.
After graduating Cum Laude from SUNY Stonybrook, with a B.S. in Bio Chemistry, Dr. Robert Dorin became a post graduate at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. He later went on to complete his internship and residency at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Centre in W. Islip. NY.
Robert is also a member of The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), and is board certified in Family Practice.
It was while undergoing his own hair transplantation surgery, carried out by one of the leading surgeon’s in the US (Dr. Robert True), that Dr. Dorin felt it was his calling to enter the field of hair restoration.
In 2002, after proving to be a natural surgeon with outstanding aesthetic sensitivity he was invited by Dr.True to serve an elective rotation at his Manhattan surgical facility. Dr. True said at the time: “I have worked with and trained many doctors over the years. In my opinion Dr. Dorin is by far the most talented”.
The rest as they say is history. With the emerging partnership proving to be such a success, the True and Dorin Medical Group was born. Twenty years on, and backed by an unrivalled team of experts in the field of hair transplantation and hair loss treatment, it is considered one of the leading hair restoration clinics in the world.
As a surgeon, Robert is known for his commitment to cutting edge follicular unit hair transplantation, whereby a customised manual punch is used to harvest the hair follicles individually to maximise growth.
This approach is further enhanced by True and Dorin’s philosophy of leveraging the manual dexterity and experience of real ‘human’ surgeons, as opposed to ‘robotic assisted’ technology which may not be adaptable to the varying needs of individual patients.
During his career, Robert has practiced in all aspects of treatment, including appropriate pharmaceutical therapy. More recently however, under the mentorship of one of the world’s most experienced hair transplant surgeons, he’s increasingly focused on the design aspects of hair transplantation, in a bid to create hairlines for his patients that defy detection.
Currently board certified in Family Practice. Dr.Dorin is a member of the: International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS), AOA, ACOFP, and New York State Osteopathic Medical Society. He is also certified in BLS, ACLS and ATLS.
