“It has been a privilege to participate in the Orlando Live Surgery Workshop.  Even though most of the time I have been part of the faculty, the education I received was greater than what I imparted.  The remarkable leadership and dedication these past 21 years from Drs. Matt Leavitt and David Perez-Meza to maintain such a high level of education, organization and enthusiasm, has made this Workshop the World Cup/Super Bowl of all Workshops!

Whether desiring to become proficient in FUE or strip grafting, the latest technology has been first demonstrated at this workshop.  A balanced view of all hair restoration techniques, whether medical or surgical are taught and demonstrated.  However, the most important aspect of the OLSW is the intimate setting where life-long relationships are formed.”
