This past Friday on May 24th, 2013, world renowned surgeon and Coalition member Dr. Bradley Limmer passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 47. Born on October 21, 1965 in Galveston, Texas, Dr. Limmer went on to graduate from Churchill High School in 1984, Texas A&M University in 1988, and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1992. After medical school, Dr. Brad Limmer completed a residency in Dermatology at Tulane University and returned to Texas to join his father, Dr. Bobby Limmer at his renowned hair restoration practice.

In the late 1980′s, Dr. Bobby Limmer revolutionized hair transplant surgery by introducing the “follicular unit” (hair groups as they occur naturally in the scalp) and microscopic dissection. After joining his father, Dr. Bradley Limmer spent years refining these and other techniques making follicular unit hair transplantation the “gold standard” of today’s modern hair restoration surgery.

Dr. Bradley Limmer is well known for his highly refined follicular unit hair transplant procedures and dedication to patient education. As a highly esteemed member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians, he was deeply respected by his peers and his patients.

Dr. Brad Limmer regularly attended all International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) meetings and frequently posted examples of his impressive hair transplant results on our discussion forum. Dr. Brad Limmer’s passion was second to none and his dedication to state of art hair transplantation has helped countless hair loss sufferers restore not only their hair, but their lost confidence as well.

Those of us who’ve benefited from natural looking follicular unit transplantation owe a debt of gratitude to Drs. Bobby and Bradley Limmer for innovating today’s state of the art hair transplant procedure.

Dr. Bradley Limmer was also very athletic and ranked well in both track and football during high school. His athletic skills coupled with his big heart led him to competitive bicycling and racing to raise funds for charities for those less fortunate than himself. He also loved to fish, hunt, snowboard, teach, travel and spend time with his beloved family.  

Sadly, Dr. Brad Limmer is no longer with us. But his legacy remains. He is survived by his mother, Jane Limmer, his father, Dr. Bobby Limmer, and his family members Byron, Rachel, Allison, and Emily Limmer. Dr. Limmer will be laid to rest in Taylor, Texas.

Along with his family and fellow loved ones who knew him personally, Dr. Bradley Limmer will be greatly missed by our hair restoration community and the thousands of grateful patients and people he’s helped over the years.

Rest in Peace Dr. Bradley Limmer ; October 21, 1965 – May 24, 2013.
