Dr . David Alpeter joined Bosley in 2004 after a 13-year career in general surgery . He received his B.A. (cum laude) in Biology from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC and his M.D. from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in 1986. He performed his internship and residency training at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati and served as Chief Resident his final year.
From 1991 to 2004, Dr . Alpeter served as a General Surgeon at the Ashtabula Clinic. He was a physician in the Cleveland Clinic Health System. During that time he was Director of Managed Care, Chief of Staff at Ashtabula County Medical Center and President of the Ashtabula Clinic Physicians Group.
After 13 years Dr . Alpeter felt he needed a new challenge. He was approached to consider hair transplantation. “At first I was reluctant because of my impression of hair transplants looking like dolls’ hair . When I saw how natural and truly undetectable modern techniques were, I was blown away”.
In 2004, Dr. Alpeter chose to practice hair transplantation exclusively with Bosley. Now, having performed over 10,000 transplantation procedures he has achieved a level of expertise rarely seen in the hair restoration field. He performs FUT (strip), FUE (follicular unit excision), eyebrow, beard and scar procedures. In addition he is a provider of SMP (scalp micro pigmentation).
Dr. Alpeter has trained eight physicians in the art and science of hair restoration and frequently mentors dermatology residents seeking to get a better understanding of hair transplantation. “Hair is such an important aspect of our appearance and self confidence. It has been incredibly rewarding to have impacted so many patients lives”.
