Graduate of the University of Liège in Belgium, Jean Devroye is Doctor of Medicine, Surgery and Obstetrics.
Since 2000, Dr Devroye has specialised exclusively in hair restoration. He developed this passion in the late 1990s, when he decided to go to the United States in order to complete most of his training under Dr John Cole (Atlanta, USA).
Other doctors such as Dr Bradley Wolf (Cincinnati, USA), Dr Ron Shapiro (Minneapolis, USA), and Dr Robert Bernstein (New York, USA), who are among the best hair transplant surgeons in the world, also shaped Dr Devroye’s training, enabling him to build on his theoretical and practical experience.
Dr Devroye also specialises in eyebrow, beard and moustache transplantation. He uses both the FUT and FUE techniques.
As a true innovator, he focuses on improving instrumentation for hair transplant.
For the last six years, he has even developed his own motorized system and his own tool for extracting follicular grafts.
He is recognized by its peers for his research on the quality of grafts growth. He is by the way in charge of a global study on the growth of transected hair in donor area for the FUE Research Committee.
Dr Devroye has intense international activity. He attaches great importance to sharing all his knowledge. That is the reason why – under the auspices of ISHRS – he participates in many conferences and workshops, where he often gives presentations or live surgeries demonstrations.
These conferences are places for exchange and discovery, opportunities to share his technique and his own instrumentation.
He also writes many publications and text book chapters about hair restoration.
