Radiation-related hair loss in Midwest


Recommended Posts

Hello all! About two years ago my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It's been a difficult journey, but he's made it!


Unfortunately, the radiation treatments he had to undergo have resulted in a large bald spot on the top and left side of his head. It does not resemble male pattern baldness. To someone not used to his appearance he still looks like someone with cancer. Shaving his head reveals a large, obvious scar and still doesn't look natural.


We live in Kansas City, Missouri. He has had a consultation with Bosley, but he's hesitant (and I agree) to go with them just because they're easy to find, particularly given his unusual case.


I am hoping that there is someone in the Midwest who has (preferably extensive) experience treating this kind of hair loss. He has a lot of available donor hair.


Thank you in advance for your time!

don't let him go to Bosley!

consult with the Shapiro's in Minneapolis and also Dr. Konior in Chicago


also do a lot of research on this forum (using search feature) before proceeding

good luck, there are very good recommended doctors on this forum who can help your husband

go dense or go home

Certainly have more than one consultation with a physician experienced with treating scars. You could also get some idea of viable treatment methods by sending us a few photos.

My opinions are based on my beliefs and are simply my own. I am one representative of the WHTC clinic.

You have two of the top hair restoration surgeons in the world in the Midwest - Dr. Raymond Konior in Chicago and Dr. Ron Shapiro in Minneapolis. I'd start there, but do not go to Bosley.
