Hair Transplant Network
HairTransplantNetwork.com is a popular and respected hair transplantation community dedicated to helping people share ideas and experiences about hair loss treatments and hair restoration doctors. This site includes hundreds of patient photos, helpful animation, video, an online mentor program, a “recommended surgeon” finder and a popular hair loss discussion forum.
Published by Media Visions, Inc. in South Florida, Hair Transplant Network has a photo gallery with over five hundred photos of patients whose hair was restored by hair restoration doctors recommended on the site. Hair Loss videos are also an important feature in the network. Users can view interviews with leading hair transplant surgeons, see actual hair transplantation procedures, and hear patients discuss their hair transplantation experience.
One of the unique features on the site is the “Hair Loss Mentors” feature. Hair loss mentors are people who have volunteered to share their surgical hair restoration experiences one to one. Users can search for hair loss mentors by transplant doctor or by geographic area.
Hair Transplant Network, the brain-child of patient and consumer advocate, Patrick Hennessey, was launched in July of 2000. The tone of this on-line community is “users helping users”. The highly visited hair loss discussion forum hosts thousands of posts where people can learn about hair loss treatment results and read reviews on the performance of hair loss physicians.
Users learn from, and correspond with, patients via “Hair Loss Weblogs” These blogs document hair transplantation patients recovery process with photos and a journal. There are many patients who have volunteered to share their story and are often willing to correspond by email. “The Hair Loss Q & A Blog” allows the public to post their hair loss questions or read dozens of posts on a wide range of hair restoration topics.
