does anyone have any feedback on the 25 or so practising surgeons here in the UK? Not all doctors are created equal. Any advice please!

Farjo is the only one in the IAHRS www.iahrs.org. Enough said.

Is there any reason why you can't travel abroad?

You will have to live with the results from HT surgery for the rest of your life. Spending a few days away from home is a small price to pay to get the best treatment available.

no, theres no reason why i couldnt travel abroad. England has some of the best medical practises in the world, but if its best to travel for the best results then so be it. the up side of course is convenience for the after care sessions, and making contact if there are complications further down the road. i think travlling to the states may make it prohibitive, although i do have family in LA...mind you, seeing dr.Epstein in florida may be a nice excuse for a holiday...in a wooly hat!

There are numerous Doc listed on the ISHRS web site (the international wing of the IAHRS?)..im assuming that the surgeons within this organisation have to adhere to the same codes of practice, medical standards and ethics?

I've heard so many terrible things about hair transplant surgeons in the UK over the years, that must indicate something negative.
