A few words...

Hello and welcome to The Knudsen Clinic website. I hope you find it informative and useful.

Although seven out of ten men and one out of five women lose their hair, most people I talk to feel that it happens at a stage which is too early in their life. They often feel less confident and older than if they had a full head of hair. The problem they then face is trying to wade through the often very confusing information relating to hair replacement options. The simple fact is: There is only one proven, permanent method for getting your hair back and that's hair transplant surgery.

What is most exciting for my patients are the recent medical advances and leading edge techniques we use. These have made hair transplants undetectable so you can forget the obsolete "plugs" or "dolls head" look. Transplanted hair looks natural - wet or dry, can be styled the way you like it, and is yours to enjoy for a lifetime
