As an NYC hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Frank believes scalps should be treated individually; no two are the same.

Dr. Frank's Philosophy

While performing hair transplants, Dr. Frank has learned that very few alternatives exist for hair loss prevention and treatment. In Dr. Frank’s research, he has discovered a unique treatment and application of products called Biocapillation™.

Biocapillation™ is a blend of European trichological techniques and Israeli technology and has serviced thousands of individuals with hair loss worldwide. Along with his skill and experience as a New York hair transplant specialist, Dr. Frank is the first person to introduce Biocapillation™ to North America and is excited to find the best solution for you.
