My WHTC: About Dr. Patrick Mwamba the clinical director
Dr. Patrick Mwamba, MD, graduated in 1998 at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. Before turning to hair restoration he was working in a hospital for general surgery. At this time he acquired meticulous microsurgical skills and was gaining special experiences about many aspects of wound care.
In 2000 he first met Dr. John P. Cole of the New Hair Institute (NHI) in Atlanta/USA. A successful collaboration between Dr. Cole and Dr. Mwamba lead to his dedication for hair transplant. Working as a hair transplant surgeon significantly determined his further career. As he was able to sensitively empathize with the concerns of his patients he decided to spend almost 24 hours a day learning and practicing modern techniques of hair transplantation.
Next to his collaboration with Dr. Cole and the International Hair Transplant Institute (IHTI) Dr. Mwamba found more opportunities to collaborate with noted hair surgeons such as Dr. Paul Rose and Dr. Jean Devroye.
Dr. Mwamba learned about artistry in the hair restoration process and the latest state-of-the-art methods (e.g. Follicular Unit Transplant – FUE), which he continued to refine at his clinic. He is one of only few pioneers developing the minimally invasive technique FIT (Follicular Isolation Technique), better known as FUE. Due to its outstanding benefits for the patients this method is the focus of Dr. Mwamba´s artful work in the clinic.
In 2006 Dr. Mwamba opened his own clinic, the World Hair Transplant Center - WHTC, in Brussels/Belgium. He now offers modern and the latest state-of-the-art methods for hair restoration including the Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT), Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), Body Hair Transplantation (BHT), "Donor Restocking" and techniques for the repair of failed or unsuccessful hair transplants.
Dr. Mwamba is noted and appreciated by many of his colleagues. His kindness to patients, an attention to detail, a sense for meticulous precision and aesthetical surgery are marking his position in the hair transplant industry. Both the patients and his medical team feel completely comfortable in the clinic.
In his private life Dr. Mwamba is spending as much time as possible with his family in the USA. His interest in sports is compensating daily efforts on excellent work in the clinic.
