|Helping those with hair loss.|
Dr. Sharon A. Keene, M.D. is currently a senior associate of Shapiro Medical Group.
In 1990 Dr. Keene began to study hair restoration surgery. The standard techniques in 1990 were the old " punch and plug" procedure, utilized by even the most respected plastic surgeons and hair transplant clinics in the country. However, Dr. Keene was not impressed with the cosmetic results of these procedures,and waited for better techniques to evolve before committing her expertise to full time hair restoration surgery.
During her introduction to hair restoration surgery she was introduced to Dr. Ron Shapiro, who would later pioneer the technique which has brought him world wide notoriety.
Dr. Keene continued to practice general surgery, but closely followed the innovations which were occurring, and remained in close contact with Dr. Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro shared his information and technical innovations in micro and minigrafting with Dr. Keene and she knew immediately that his new technique was revolutionary and one she could proudly perform.
She then added her own surgical expertise to fine tune the procedure and improve the natural appearance of the hairline. Because of her surgical experience and technical excellence, Dr. Shapiro invited Dr. Keene to associate with him at the Minneapolis clinic (now known as Shapiro Medical Group) at the start of the "revolution" in hair restoration surgery.
The doctors at Shapiro Medical Group have helped change forever the results and expectations for hair restoration surgery. Dr. Keene has been part of the tearn of physicians who, in association with Dr. Ron Shapiro, teach the state of the art total follicular unit micrografting procedure to doctors from around the world at the International Society of Hair Restoration surgery in 1995 and 1996.
In 1998, she was an invited guest lecturer for the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. She is respected by her peers and has acted as a consultant to the Arizona Board of Medical Examiners, (the governing body which licenses physicans) in the area of hair restoration surgery, at their request. Dr. Sharon Keene in association with Dr. Ron Shapiro and Shapiro Medical Group has committed her vast experience and knowledge to providing the most advanced and innovative techniques available anywhere to create the best cosmetic results possible in hair restoration surgery.
Dr. Sharon Keene recieved her undergraduate degree and medical school training at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following graduation from medical school in 1984, she was accepted to a 5 year general surgery residency training program at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. She is certified by the American Board of Surgery, a recognized specialty board of the American Board of Medical Specialties. Only physicians who have completed training in an accredited program, and then passed both oral and written examinations can be certified in the specialty of surgery.
