The Best Hair Transplant Doctors in the USA – 2024 Updated List

There are hundreds, if not thousands of doctors performing hair transplants across the United States. Many people wish to visit the best doctor available, not simply a local doctor or cosmetic physician also performing transplants. This list takes a methodical, quantitative, and qualitative approach to measuring the top hair transplant doctors in the USA. 

To begin, this is our ranking criteria:

  • Number of Transplants Performed (25%): Logically, doctors who have performed more transplants are given preference over doctors with less experience.
  • Years Practicing Hair Restoration (25%): While years practicing and skill is not a direct correlation, the correlation will be strong. 
  • Honors and Awards (20%): Organizations such as the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) honor physicians who have distinguished themselves in the field of hair restoration. 
  • Clinic Location(s) (5%): Generally, physicians in larger metropolitan areas see more patients and have more networking opportunities with other specialists in the field. 
  • Average Patient Reviews (25%): At the end of the day, patient reviews are a primary metric which should be considered when determining which hair transplant doctors are at the top of the field. 

The table below ranks the 10 best hair transplant doctors in the United States. Note: Each of these doctors is superb in the art of hair restoration and a patient could not go wrong choosing any of them. However, based on the ranking criteria, we have sorted them in this order.
