The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery is a non-profit medical association composed of more than 1,200 members who specialize in hair loss treatments and restoration.

Since its incorporation in 1993, a renaissance in hair transplantation surgery was set into motion by the ISHRS. The multidisciplinary, international membership of the ISHRS became a critical mass for an explosion of innovation in hair transplantation surgery. The Annual Meeting is a highlight of the year in which the top minds in HRS come together.
