I would not personally rank surgeons but there are a number of surgeons in North America producing consistently high levels of fue.

It must be taken into account that the major forums such as this one are predominately used by english speaking (British and American).

This group are likely to make up a smaller proportion of the patients for the surgeons in Europe and I suspect that the majority of their other european patients may use other european forums. Maybe I am wrong

Is that list in order?

No particular order champ. Im very hesitant to actually recommend a specific doctor anymore. Seen enough average or below average results from all. Im convinced that no doctor can gaurantee a successful result or good scar/scarring but you have the best chance with these doctors. The US and Canada are strip orientated save for a few surgeons like Umar and Dr. C. I have conflicting opinions on why that is.

Chrisdav i factored in the North American surgeons and used to have a high opinion of their fue work but have since changed my mind on this. Too many inconsistent results. The fact that some push for strip and/or relegate fue for just hairline work further enforced my opinion.

It is just my opinion though. Based on looking at actual patient posted results on this forum and others. No clinic posts bad results but there are alot out there. There are even more that remain hidden due to patients not wanting to jeopardise their relationship with the surgeon because they need a repair or touch up. Be cautious.

While there are a variety of excellent FUE practitioners in Europe, I wouldn't discount FUE in North America.

If you're looking in this region, I highly recommend researching Dr. Rahal, Dr. Feller, Drs. Paul and Ron Shapiro, Dr. Umar, Dr. James Harris, and Dr. Lindsey (among others).

Mickey that is the exactly point I am making.

I personally do not believe for one minute that the surgeons in Europe are more talented and superior to the surgeons in North America at Fue. That is rubbish. The best strip surgeons I think are more likely to have a better transition from strip to Fue.

The reason you see more variability in North American clinics is they have been posting more work over a longer period of time and have actual REAL people posting their progress and testimonies. The more testimonies that are found, this ultimately gives a larger sample and a better real indication of the surgeons total work, not just by picking and choosing the best results.

Two of the clinics you have named I could probably count the amount of testimonies they have posted on the British/American orientated forums on one hand. And the reason for that is, the majority of the patients that go to their clinics are not on the British/American forums as they are european and do not speak/write english.

Of course, but I've been looking at foreign forums where their work is featured in much larger quantities. It's all just my opinion anyway, it's not gospel

I understand that Mickey and I do agree that they have larger quantities of fue posted.

I personally do not know a lot about Erdogan(Turkey) but he has a lot of work posted on another forum.

Understood I just posted my personal list of the most experienced FUE Doctors. Not saying they don't get poor results at times but the tendency would be less than others in my humble opinion.

Maybe they do.

A surgeon who performs fue exclusively will have a larger portfolio of fue work.

It is a grey area in my opinion and I do agree to some extent with what the surgeon in Atlanta says about performing exclusively in fue, even though I do not like his marketing ethics.
