Dr. Anderson received his medical degree with honors from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 1996. Following medical school, he completed seven years of specialty surgical training, including a residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (ENT surgery) and a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Michigan Medical Center.
He also received training in the fine arts from the Pennsylvania State University. He is a medical illustrator and has published his drawings in several peer-reviewed medical journals and textbooks.
Dr. Anderson started his hair restoration career in 2003 in private practice in Beverly Hills, California. In 2008, Dr. Anderson was recruited to Atlanta, GA to join the Emory Facial Center. As a satellite office of Emory Hospital, the Facial Center had previously been dedicated to facial cosmetic surgery, but Dr. Anderson was brought onboard to expand Emory’s services and offer hair restoration to Emory Healthcare patients.
During his time at Emory, Dr. Anderson’s educational contributions included several grand rounds lectures presented to the Emory Department of Dermatology, and the Emory Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
Education has always been a key part of Dr. Anderson’s passion. He has been an invited lecturer on hair restoration around the world, including in Europe, Canada, Japan, and Ecuador. In 2012, he won the Okinawa Award for a presentation about follicular unit excision procedures, delivered to the Japan Society for Clinical Hair Restoration.
Outside of work, Dr. Anderson’s interests include hockey (which he has played since 1974), boating on Lake Lanier, photography, motorcycles, and travel.
