Hasson and Wong

The Hasson and Wong hair transplant clinic is located in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Should you elect to have hair transplant surgery at their clinic, not only will you receive a world–class hair transplant, but you’ll also be visiting one of the most beautiful places in the entire world. Vancouver, Canada is truly a ‘must visit’ city and is consistently ranked as one of the top ten most desirable places to live worldwide.

While you sit comfortably in one of their state-of-the-art surgical chairs, you’ll enjoy an unobstructed, breathtaking view of downtown Vancouver and False Creek.

For the majority of patients, surgery can take up to eight hours or more. Understanding this, they've taken every step possible to ensure that their patients are comfortable throughout the day and their hair transplant surgery suites were built for comfort.

Dr. Victor Hasson and Dr. Jerry Wong are world renowned hair transplant surgeons. People from all over the world travel for a Hasson and Wong hair transplant and their results speak for themselves.

The excellent surgeons at Hasson and Wong are supported by an expert team of hair transplant technicians who play a crucial role in the hair transplant surgery process. These highly trained technicians are responsible for dissecting the follicular units from the donor strips as well as placing the grafts into the graft sites created by the surgeons. They also assist with the removal of surgical staples, post surgery and pre-surgery hair rinses and more.

The Hasson and Wong clinic offers both FUE and FUT surgical options.

Hasson and Wong

Dr. Jerry Wong obtained his MD degree from the University of Alberta. He worked for several years as a GP with a hospital based practice in Maple Ridge B.C. In 1991 he was introduced to hair transplant by Dr. Dorman, a hair transplant surgeon in Vancouver. Dr. Wong was fascinated by the microsurgical aspect of hair transplants.

Dr.  Wong started a part time hair transplant practice in 1993 and then later opened the Hasson and Wong Clinic in Vancouver, along with his partner Dr. Victor Hasson.

After attending the first ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery ) meeting in Dallas in 1993, Dr Wong noticed that many hair transplants at that time did not look very natural.  The problem was the exit angle of the hair from the skin. Natural hair almost always exits the skin at an angle and transplanted hair exit perpendicular to the skin.

Dr Wong reasoned that if the cuts were made lateral (perpendicular) to the hair direction and at the same time the blade handle was angled forward the slit would then sandwich the grafts holding the transplanted hair shaft at whatever angle the operator chooses.

This simple twist of the blade enabled transplanted hair to be perfectly angled to match existing hair. This modern technique of doing hair transplants results in the transplanted hair blending seamlessly with existing hair to create a truly undetectable result.

Dr.  Wong first used the lateral slit in 1993 and presented the “lateral slit technique” at the ISHRS meeting in Barcelona in 1996.  Over the year Dr Wong's technique has enabled many doctors to enhance their results leading to an industry-wide adoption of his techniques and patients now getting truly undetectable results.

Dr.  Wong feels very fortunate and grateful to work in this field. Over the years he has been able to form long lasting friendships with hair surgeons from all over the world.
