Jonathan Ballon, M.D. - Bosley Physician
Dr. Jonathan Ballon earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Oberlin College in Ohio and his M.D. from New York Medical College. He has completed residencies at St. Vincent's Hospital & Medical Center of New York and the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, CT.
Following his neurosurgical residency at the University of Connecticut Health Center, Dr. Ballon went into private practice in neurosurgery and served as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Connecticut. He was granted an International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Fellowship in Hair Restoration Surgery from Medical Hair Restoration in 2004. Following his fellowship, Dr. Ballon has exclusively performed hair transplantation procedures.
With more than 20 years of performing neurosurgery to his credit, there is no question that Dr. Jonathan Ballon brings incredible skill and painstaking attention to detail to his work in hair restoration. "After leaving neurosurgery, I wanted to work in a field that could continue to challenge me while allowing me to have a positive impact on people's lives. As a hair restoration patient, I know what it meant to me to have hair on my head again," said Dr. Ballon.
Drawing from his experience in neurosurgery, Dr. Ballon brings great compassion to his patients. He recognizes the importance of listening and communicating with patients and their families in order to establish realistic expectations. "It is critically important to understand how a patient's hair loss has affected him or her, and what they would like to be accomplished by surgery," he said. "What I love about hair restoration is the opportunity to apply my surgical skills artistically, and to help people recreate that mental picture of themselves they still carry with them from years past. It's incredibly rewarding." Dr. Ballon is a firm believer in the uniqueness of each person's hair loss case so he takes tremendous pride in personalizing every consultation and procedure. He feels it his professional obligation to ensure that every patient's decision is one of the best he or she has ever made.
Over the years, Dr. Ballon has given numerous public presentations on hair loss and hair transplantation. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgery and a Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. He is also an active member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS).
Dr. Jonathan Ballon holds medical licenses in Georgia, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia.
