James A. Harris, MD, FACS is devoted exclusively to doing high quality all microscopically dissected follicular unit hair transplantation, with special emphasis on FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
He is an internationally recognized hair restoration physician and a published author of both medical and consumer publications. He is a faculty member of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he teaches hair transplantation to resident physicians in training and community physicians.
As director of the Hair Sciences Center of Colorado (HSC), he is dedicated exclusively to providing the very best in medical and surgical treatments for hair loss. Dr. Harris personally consults with every patient and is always the physician performing the surgery at HSC. Supported by an exceptionally experienced team of nurses and technicians specialized in hair replacement surgery, Dr. Harris' standard of care does not end with surgery. Personalized follow-up attention is provided after the procedure, starting the very next day. This care continues until the hair is grown out and the patient is satisfied.
Actively participating at the forefront of research, Dr. Harris has pioneered and patented an advanced method of follicular unit extraction (FUE), called the Harris SAFE System. This method improves on traditional FUE by virtually eliminating follicle damage and making it available to all patients. His newest device, the "Powered SAFE Scribe" is safe and effective in the hands of any skilled hair restoration physician and can reduce the time it takes to perform the procedure by half.

Dr. Harris also developed and formalized the technique of Recombinant Follicular Unit Transplantation, a method to increase transplant hair density in a natural, undetectable fashion. This method was recently published in the fourth edition of Hair Transplantation, the authoritative book for surgeons on hair transplantation. Dr. Harris is also at the forefront of biotechnology in the investigation of cell multiplication for the treatment of hair loss.
