Dr. Robert J. Reese

Hair Transplant Surgeon

Dr. Robert J. Reese, D.O., FISHRS, has performed Hair Restoration procedures in the Twin Cities since 1999.  He is well known, and respected, in the hair restoration community both nationally, and internationally.Dr. Reese’s personal philosophy for hair restoration is that, while there is an aesthetic component in the hair restoration process, the procedure is primarily reconstructive in nature.  The patients suffering with hair loss are, therefore, made to feel whole again through the hair restoration process.  And this brings great satisfaction and healing for the patients. Several of Dr. Reese’s honors include serving as Past-President of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, (ABHRS), an organization committed to ethics and certification in the field.  Additionally, for many years, Dr. Reese served as an Examining Physician for the ABHRS. Based upon his contributions and service to the field, Dr. Reese was honored as a Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, (ISHRS), in its inaugural class of Fellows. While serving the ISHRS and ABHRS, Dr. Reese initiated the Morbidity & Mortality Conference, (M&M), held annually in conjunction with the ISHRS Annual Clinical Assembly, and served as the Inaugural M&M Conference Chair.  The M&M Conference continues to be ranked among the highest rated offerings for physicians to attend to this day. Dr. Reese has also performed, and published, original research on the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma, (PRP), in conjunction with the hair restoration process dating back to 2006.  He has presented lectures both nationally, and internationally on the topic.  He contributed a chapter on the use of PRP in the hair restoration process for the medical textbook; Hair Transplant 360, Volume 3, Editor: Samuel Lam, MD – 2014. Additionally, while serving his community performing vascular and general surgery, and as a surgical educator, Dr. Reese held the academic appointment, Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at the SUNY-Buffalo, New York, School of Medicine. But, perhaps his most important skill is Dr. Reese’s commitment to making patients feel comfortable during their hair restoration procedure.  As he is known to say, “Nobody likes being the patient.  But my team and I have the ability, nearly 100% of the time, to have you go home saying, ‘That was so much easier than I thought it would be’.  The medical and technical team at HRI of MN is committed to this standard for the benefit of the patients we serve”. Dr. Reese is skilled in all aspects of the hair restoration process, including FUE and FUT procedures.  Dr. Reese performs hair restoration procedures on the scalp, eyebrows, mustache, sideburns, and beard.  He has performed hair restoration procedures on all age, gender, and ethnic groups.
