Dr. Barusco recently received the designation of Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). The ISHRS is the largest professional association dedicated to hair restoration surgery in the world. It has thousands of members worldwide.
Is the ISHRS Fellow Category Available for Everyone?
To be accepted for the Fellow category of membership, a member has to pass a vetting process. He or she must demonstrate commitment and dedication to the specialty. This can include serving in committees and leadership positions in the ISHRS. Also, if the candidate has achieved diplomate status with the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, it is a plus. Currently there are only about 100 members worldwide with the Fellow designation (less than 10% of all ISHRS members). Thus, this is an important distinction.
Dr. Barusco’s History with the ISHRS
Since joining the ISHRS, Dr. Barusco has served in many committees. To name a few, he acted as Co-Chair and Scientific Coordinator for many editions of their most traditional educational event, the Orlando Live Surgery Workshop.
