Dr. Alan S. Feller was born, raised, attended medical school, and practices in New York. He has been practicing hair transplantation exclusively since 1994 and is one of the state’s leading and most experienced physicians in the field of modern hair transplantation. He is a member and contributor to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery since 1995; author of scientific papers covering hair transplantation as well as tissue regeneration; author and co-author of several U.S. patents, and inventor of new instrumentation and protocols for the hair transplant field.
An accomplished inventor, patent holder, and amateur engineer, Dr. Feller entered the field of Hair Transplantation shortly after receiving his medical credentials from the University of the State of New York. With literally thousands of hair transplant patients since 1994, Dr. Feller stands as one of the few doctors in the United States who can claim exceptional expertise in the dynamic world of Hair transplantation.
Through the years, Dr. Feller has trained many physicians from both the U.S. and abroad in the intricacies of modern hair transplantation techniques, and continues to be sought out worldwide by physicians seeking beginner or advanced training in hair transplant techniques.
Dr. Feller’s practice is limited exclusively to hair restoration surgery. He employs a team of extremely experienced fulltime technicians for every procedure. These “super-technicians” as he calls them were trained by Dr. Feller and work exclusively for his clinic. ”Travelling technicians” or “shared technicians” are never hired nor even considered as are in most clinics (unfortunately).Binocular microscopic dissection of the donor area using the best clinical stereo-microscopes is utilized to obtain the finest follicular grafts possible. Quality control is at the core of Dr. Feller’s approach to hair restoration and he is closely involved in every aspect of the procedure until it is finished.
Dr. Feller utilizes TRUE follicular units for his procedures, not chunky low quality old style mini-grafts as most clinics do, and is recognized as one of the most transparent and meticulous surgeons in the field of hair transplantation. Just search the internet hair transplant forums to verify this fact. Close up photographs are taken before and during each procedure for verification of quality and are always available to patients to keep for themselves or to share online if desired. This is hardly ever offered by most clinics.
Dr. Feller prides himself on always being on the cutting edge of hair transplantation technology and maintains a well-stocked research and development laboratory on the premises of his Great Neck office. He is the inventor of “Cardioscope”- a new kind of heart monitor (FDA cleared); the “Feller Gynescope”- a device for detecting pre-cancerous states in women. A patent for computer interface and data exchange technology, as well as multiple patents for hair transplantation technology and instrumentation.
