Dr.    José   Lorenzo    graduated   from   Madrid´s   Complutense   University   in   1991   in   1991.   He   completed   his   specialization   in   General Surgery   and   Thoracic   Surgery   at   the   Carlos   G.   Duran   General   Hospital   (UBA,   Bs. As.),   a   specialized   area   in   which   he   worked   until he began in hair restoration in 2002. In 2003 he observed the first hair transplants by FUE during a trip to the DHI clinic in Athens, one   year   after   FUE   was   first   described   by   Dr.   Rassman   and   Dr.   Bernstein   (Rassman,   W.T.,   and   R.   M.   Bernstein.   Follicular   unit extraction:   minimally   invasive   surgery   for   hair   transplantation.   Dermatological   Surg.   2002;   720   -   728).   Impressed   by   the   skill   required and   the   potential   of   a   minimally   invasive   technique   which   offered   a   natural   solution,   he   decided   to   put   all   his   energy   into   learning   and developing the method which was then in its infancy. Dr.   Lorenzo   is   a   pioneer   in   Spain   in   the   development   of   the   FUE   technique,   first   as   Chief   Surgeon   at   the   Ceta   Clinic   and   afterwards at   his   own   clinic,   Medilor   (2008),   in   the   city   of Alcobendas,   Madrid.   He   has   performed   studies   to   develop   the   technique,   just   like   other pioneers such as Dr. Cole , Dr. Woods , Dr. Jones , Dr. Feller  or DHI , did in the early years of FUE. He   has   been   a   member   of   the   ISHRS    (International   Society   of   Hair   Restoration   Surgery)   since   2006   after   attending   the   congress held   in   San   Diego   (US).   At   the   congress   in   Las   Vegas   in   2007,   he   made   his   first   presentation   which   was   based   on   the   anchoring system   which   connects   the   follicular   units   to   the   surrounding   tissues   and   its   application   in   the   FUE   technique   ("Skill   vs. Tools").   Since then   he   has   actively   participated   in   all   of   the   annual   congresses   with   talks,   videos,   debates,   live   procedure   presentations   (Patient Live View), Workshop Faculty and Director, Expert Faculty during Breakfast or Coffee, Restore Operation (ISHRS Foundation) etc... He   was   invited   for   the   first   time   to   operate   live   at   the   1st   Mediterranean   Workshop,   in   Israel,   by   Dr.   Ginzburg ,   in   2009.   He   is   currently a    habitual    guest    at    live    operations    at    the    numerous    workshops    on    FUE    throughout    the    world    (Orlando,    Seoul,    Manchester, Bangalore, Brussels, Sao Paolo etc...). He   organized   his   own   workshop   in   Madrid   with   Dr.   Ginzburg   at   the   2nd   Mediterranean   FUE   Workshop   in   May   of   2013.   Present   at this   workshop   were   Dr.   Harris ,   Dr.   Feriduni,    Dr.   Devroye    y   Dr.   Erdogan ;   In   total   there   were   130   attendees   with   10   procedures   being performed and 9.361 follicular units transplanted in 3 days. In   the   development   of   his   particular   technique   of   implanting,   Dr.   Lorenzo   emphasizes   the   use   of   a   tool   which   he   considers fundamental   for   the   results   he   obtains:   the   Implanter.   In   2009   he   collaborated   with   the   Korean   company   Hans   Biomed   in   the   design and production of what is now considered to be the best implanter: the Lion Implanter. Lion Implanter. Along   with   Hasson   &   Wong    Dr.   Lorenzo   also   does   pioneering   work   in   presenting   on   the   internet   videos   of   the   results   of   his transplants,   substituting   the   usual   photographs   which   can   be   easily   manipulated.   His   page   in   youtube ,   contains   more   than   250 videos of hair transplant results. In   2008   he   opened   InjertoCapilar   Argentina   in   Buenos   Aires   with   his   resident   study   colleague,   Dr.   Alejandro   Chueco .   He   has   been working   together   with   Dr.   Ximena   Vila   in   Medilor   since   2009.   InjertoCapilar   Manchester    commences   in   2013   in   collaboration   with   Dr. Farjo. He   is   a   member   of   the   FUE   Research   Committee   of   the   ISHRS   since   its   creation   in   2012,   which   is   tasked   by   the   international   society for   the   investigation   and   development   of   the   FUE   technique.   He   also   chairs   the   subcomité    for   the   standardization   of   the   terminology used   in   FUE,   due   for   completion   in   September   2013.   On   numerous   occasions   Dr.   Lorenzo   has   collaborated   with   the   journal "International   Hair   Transplant   Forum"   with   various   articles   about   the   FUE   technique.   He   has   also   written   several   chapters   in   two books based on hair transplants ("Hair Transplantation" by Dr. Sungjoo Tommy Hwang and "Hair Transplant 720" by Dr. Sam Lam).
