Consultant Neurosurgeon & Hair Transplant Surgeon

Born in Yorkshire, Dr Ismail attended the prestigious University of St Andrews and Manchester where he qualified in Medicine with an Honours degrees in 2004. He then followed a very surgical based training pathway culminating in approved training in Neurosurgery at Nottingham and sub-speciality fellowship training at King’s College Hospital, London. He has been appointed as a fully accredited, UK-board certified Consultant Neurosurgeon in Birmingham for three years. Naturally, he is very familiar with procedures on the scalp having performed thousands of brain operations. This combined with his extensive experience of performing awake procedures for brain surgeries naturally makes him very comfortable in performing hair transplant surgery. He is certified to perform advanced hair surgeries including both FUE and FUT and uniquely is also able to combine both techniques to cover very large areas of scalp if required. He also has experience of harvesting hair from other parts of the body (e.g., beard) when donor hair may not be sufficient.


He is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons on Edinburgh and The British Medical Association and has a number of scientific publications and has run training courses in his speciality. Dr Ismail has been practising hair transplant surgery for many years now combined with his neurosurgery. The routine work he does with brains made him a very accomplished perfectionist doctor in hair transplants as marvelled by his 1,000’s satisfied customers. He is one of the only handful of surgeons in Europe who successfully combines FUT and FUE in the same session to get very large and ethical number of grafts for each patient without overharvesting.
