Dr. Ray Woods
Dr. Ray Woods graduated from Sydney University Medical School in 1982. He has wide experience in many areas of medicine including Neurosurgery, Obstetrics, Internal Medicine, trauma, skin cancer surgery and cosmetic Dermatological surgery. He is internationally recognised as the father of modern hair transplant technology and has won multiple life time achievement awards.
His fascination with the concept of hair transplant developed at the age of 17, and in 1989 he decided to investigate the process. Since then, he has perfected the microsurgical art of gentle hair transplants using donor hair and body hair. He envisaged the discipline to be a process of microsurgical follicular extraction, but found worldwide practice was very different and removed from his vision.
After witnessing close friends suffer the physical and psychological trauma of destructive hair transplant surgery, he began research and experimentation to create a new minimally invasive follicular single unit extraction process, which did not exist anywhere else in the world.
Along with creating a new discipline, Dr Woods established a new standard in ethics and accountability through the Declaration of Patient Rights, and Monitoring of Donor Extraction (M.O.D.E). Since 1989, Dr Woods has explored, developed, and perfected every aspect of this discipline, including intricate and complicated scar repair previously thought to be untreatable.
Dr Woods skill is unmatched and he ranked as the #1 hair transplant doctor in Australia according to HairSite’s patient statistics based on successful patient results since 1997. This is the highest honor for any hair transplant clinic and is only given to the absolute best. No other doctor in Australia has published as many patient results as Dr. Woods.
