In the field of hair restoration, we often speak of the patient journey, because we understand that battling hair loss, a progressive health disorder, takes time, patience and staying with a patient through the high and lows of getting to that final result. So too, Dr. Ziering’s career in this dynamic field of science and medicine has been an incredible journey.
Dr. Ziering shares, “It all started with my amazing parents – especially my father — who encouraged me to pursue becoming a doctor and who also served as inspiration for my particular field of choice. You see, my father started losing his hair when he was 21 and by the time he was 28 he was completely bald. I was both intrigued and concerned, as I watched him go through that experience. While he chose to accept being bald, I was driven to find answers and real options. Hence, my great fascination with “everything hair” was born.”
Affectionately known as Doc Z to his colleagues and patients, Dr. Ziering received his medical degree in 1989 from Nova Southeastern University in Miami, Florida. He underwent his internship with the UMDNJ and simultaneously began assisting with hair transplant surgery in a large group practice. These years would prove to be the pivotal ones, as Dr. Ziering explored how hair grows naturally and the impact of progressive hair loss as well as sharpened his surgical skills and aesthetic for achieving natural-looking results. He completed his residency in Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery at Ohio University’s Grandview Medical Center. After this period of extensive postgraduate education and training, including a Fellowship in Hair Restoration, Dr. Ziering then became the Associate Medical Director for a national hair transplant company, performing surgery throughout the United States.
Along the way, Dr. Ziering began to envision a different kind of experience for his patients. His perfectionist and pioneering spirit longed for a place where new hair loss treatments could be explored, advanced surgical technology could be developed and surgical techniques could be tried, tested and taught to other surgeons. Established in 2003, Ziering Medical became Doc Z’s private practice and home base for imaging a new hair transplant practice and patient experience. As one of the pioneers in male and female hair transplantation, Dr. Ziering has more than 30 years of experience perfecting the art and science of hair restoration surgery. His expertise has led to groundbreaking innovations such as the Ziering Whorl, the Ziering Blades, the Ziering Scope and the Ziering Tunnel Technique.
Doc Z takes tremendous pride in his personally selected team of surgeons whom have all completed fellowships with Ziering Medical. Over the years, he has refined the surgical process and provides oversight of all patient procedures and treatment plans while he performs surgery on an exclusive and limited basis. In many ways, his life’s experience is beginning to come full circle where daily he guides and coaches the surgical team, passing along his unparalleled attention to detail and his view of the patient being a father, mother, sister, uncle or brother not a number, onto this next generation of hair restoration aficionados.
As a leading authority in his field, he is a sought after lecturer and teacher having trained surgeons around the world – from the UK and Dubai to South Korea and South America. Dr. Ziering is available for guest appearances and lectures by special request. Dr. Ziering is often featured on shows such as The Doctors, The Today Show, E! News, Good Morning America, Extreme Makeover, and Good Day LA.
