The Man who Changed Hair Restoration.
The story is written by the winners. Of those who dared to push boundaries, to move away from the mainstream and discover new lands. It is for all those who had a vision, who believed in it with all their soul and even devoted their lives to it.
In the words of the American academic and writer Warren Bennis: “The ability to translate vision into reality is leadership.” And the main characteristic of a great leader is the skill he has to inspire those around him, even his opponents. Why is this person, through their example, inspiring people to follow him however big the challenge?
The founder of DHI Global Medical Group, Konstantinos Giotis, is not only a born winner but also a charismatic leader.
And today, 48 years since founding DHI, his name is among the seven pioneers in the history of Hair Restoration. Those top seven have changed the Hair Restoration industry forever.
At the 2nd International Conference of the World Institute of FUE, the founder of DHI was listed among the seven most important reformers in the history of Hair Restoration, the only European on the list.
Throughout his career, Konstantinos Giotis had one goal; to win. And he did it because:
He was the first to take the decision in 2002 to abandon the brutal FUT technique, replacing it with the FUE technique.
A few years after the introduction of FUE, he went on to develop the advanced Direct Hair Implantation technique, the only hair transplant technique taught at an academic level at the Eugenides Hospital of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
He invested in education
He has established London’s first and only College of Hair Rehabilitation, which has so far trained and certified more than 200 doctors and medical staff members.
It was Konstantinos Giotis who devised the most advanced and complete system of hair loss diagnosis, DSA.
His plan was to change the world and society by restoring lost confidence to those suffering from hair loss and scalp disorders. DHI’s new Prevention & Anti-Aging program does just that. It focuses not only on the aesthetic aspect of hair loss, but examines in depth all parameters, both in terms of its psychological and biological effects on the health of each patient, offering the most complete treatment plan.
Today, DHI Global Medical Group is the largest medical organization specializing in hair loss treatments, with more than 66 clinics around the world and over 200,000 satisfied patients transformed. And DHI’s family is proud of having a real winner and true leader at the helm, the “father of modern hair restoration”, Konstantinos Giotis.
