"I graduated in December
1988 from the Medical School of the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg,
with the degree of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. (M.B.B.Ch.)
My elective training in 1987
was done in Australia.
I completed my year of internship
in 1989 at Johannesburg Hospital, Parktown. This year was spent in the
professorial units of Prof. Bothwell and Prof. Myburgh.
In 1990, I lectured on the
subject of Anatomy and Physiology, before travelling abroad. I travelled
extensively throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and Scandinavia. During
this time, I gained valuable experience and learnt many new techniques,
covering a broad spectrum of medical topics, including the treatment of
On my return to South Africa,
I gained general practice experience, working as a locum or as an assistant
in various busy practices, before starting my own private medical practice

to better results with the patients that I was treating.
In 1998,when the results
that I was achieving in my hair loss patients started to astound even me,
I decided that the time was right to open my own Hair Loss Clinic which
would specialize in the medical treatment of all types of hair loss conditions
in men and women.
