The World FUE Institute began as a response to the need for a wholly educational organization that strictly addressed education, research and innovation in the area of FUE hair restoration surgery on an international level.
As each of the founding members identified gaps in the imparting of precise educational information on FUE surgical procedures and instrumentation throughout the medical community, and as innovation in the field slowly began to develop, the founders decided to create a new organization that they trusted would become a forerunner an ever-changing arena of FUE. Their belief and aim was to set a professional standard worldwide through proper education, training and preparation so that the highest quality results could be obtained using precision and artistry through innovative instrumentation and techniques.
The first formative meeting took place in Budapest, Romania in October 2015 with six surgeons that soon grew to ten, enough to form the Governing Board and establish committees and chairmen. By February 2016, the bylaws and their translations into one of Belgium’s official languages, French, were complete and ready to receive the Royal Degree, the final stamp of approval as a non-profit organization by the Belgian courts.
On April 22, 2016, the final Royal Decree was received and the World FUE Institute awaited bank approval to open a bank account under non-profit status. This occurred about a month later, and in June 2016, the World FUE Institute launched its first workshop website announcing the 1st International World FUE Institute Workshop to be held in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. The workshop successfully took place from November 11-13, 2016 and another in Athens, Greece in June 2017. Many doctors attending, convinced of the organization’s purpose and objectives, became new members immediately. The membership drive is ongoing with plans for another workshop in June 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.
