About

Bio

Hi! I'm Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D. and I've spent my medical career helping men and women with hair loss. I've been in private practice in Boca Raton since 1997 using the latest medical treatments and procedures to looking to maintain, enhance and restore my patient's own living and growing hair. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools like HairCheck, HairCam to measure hair loss and hair growth, as well as prescribe customized effective treatments to help protect the hair you have and restore the hair you've lost. If and when it comes to artistic hair transplantation, we use ONLY the FUE Follicular-Unit Extraction method with NeoGraft or ARTAS robotic assisted system to harvest hair follicles NEVER leaving a linear scar to hide. I look forward to helping you!
