Dr Koray Erdogan - Biography
Dr Koray Erdogan graduated in 1994 at the Hacettepe University (Ankara), Faculty of Medicine, and completed his compulsory medical service in Kastamonu. Afterwards he attended the Faculty of Thoracic Surgery at the Marmara University of Istanbul and worked in a Coronary Intensive Care Unit.
He started in the field of hair restoration in 2000, assisting several hair surgeons in their private clinics.
In 2001, he opened his own clinic in Istanbul – ASMED – with his first assistant Dilek Cakir.
He started to perform FUE in 2004 by combining both FUT + FUE techniques.
In 2005 he realized that FUE patients with similar results than FUT ones were even happier, because of the minor trauma and the less visible scar with short hair.
In 2006 he developed his own FUE tools and method of grafts extraction, named “DES” (also known as ‘SEQUENTIAL TECHNIQUE’, published by FUE Research Committee of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in November/December 2013).
Currently Dr Erdogan is performing only FUE procedures in ASMED Medical Center in Istanbul, with the assistance of 4 other doctors and 20 nurses. Most of his patients are coming from all over the world: 90% of them are from Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Sweden, Canada, United States and Australia.
