Dr. Victor Hasson grew up in Harare, the largest city and the capital of Zimbabwe and moved to Cape Town, South Africa to attend University of Cape Town and earn his medical degree. Dr. Hasson graduated in 1984 and soon found himself working in General Practice as an Emergency Medical Officer in Canada. He worked at a number of locations across Canada between 1986 and 1992.
In 1993 he shifted gears and started his Hair Transplant surgical preceptorship in Vancouver. His training as a hair transplant surgeon took him to several leading hair transplant centers across Canada where he immersed himself in the most current techniques and procedures. What he saw and learned made him keen to start his own hair transplant clinic.
In 1997 Dr. Hasson teamed up with Dr. Jerry Wong to open the Hasson and Wong Hair Transplant Clinic in Vancouver, Canada. Dr. Hasson was eager to take what he’d learned over the years and put it into practice in his own clinic. He was enthusiastic to improve upon the procedures he had been taught and was convinced there were much more effective ways to achieve excellent results.
Dr Hasson's quest for consistently outstanding results is matched by his desire for efficiency. Since the beginning, the Hasson and Wong Clinic has been pushing the boundaries of what hair transplant surgery can accomplish and how efficient it can be. When the Doctors first introduced the lateral slit technique, it changed the industry. The standards for natural-looking hair transplant were raised, and the industry stigma of pluggy-looking hair transplants started to fade. The doctors worked hard with their teams to refine clinical procedures to enable hair transplant mega-sessions where large numbers of grafts can be harvested in one procedure.
Over the ensuing years, Dr. Hasson has been involved with a number of professional associations and has been invited to present at a numerous ISHRS conferences. He has been recognized for his pioneering work introducing and honing the lateral slit technique along with Dr. Wong.
