After completing his compulsory military service, he began the practice of medicine as an assistant at Marmara University’s Department of Thoracic Surgery. In 2001, he founded his own hair transplant clinic, and at the same time, participated in numerous conferences and seminars in Europe and the United States. By 2004, he had developed his own unique FUE system known as the “Sequential Technique” that has since been evidenced in forums and international publications. Additionally, he validated and demonstrated this technique in numerous international congresses and workshops such as in Spain, Italy, Malaysia and India. Dr. Erdogan exclusively performs FUE hair transplants at the ASMED Surgical Center, his personal clinic, together with six other physicians who are specialists in their respective fields. In 2016, he founded World FUE Institute with the other authorities of international hair transplant society like Dr. Ron Shapiro, Dr. Jose Lorenzo, Dr. Jerry Wong, Dr. Hussain Rahal and Dr. Bijan Feriduni and assumed the Vice-Presidency. In 2018 he was elected president of the World FUE Institute.

The preview of the book ‘Practical Aspects of Hair Transplantation in Asians’ which Dr. Koray Erdoğan’s three articles on FUE hair transplant have been published, is available online.
FUE has come a long way from its initial inception. This article will attempt to describe early approaches to FUE and the basic concepts and elements of FUE that later developed including the evaluation and preservation of the donor area; the use of equipment such as the manual, motorized, and robotic punch; punch sizes and types; and specific FUE terminology such as transection, splay, splitting, and the anchor system. It also addresses the most recent innovations and advancements in FUE including calculated density, “coverage value,” and the never-ending quest for homogenization with the assistance of newly developed equipment such as the computerized graft counter...
This chapter will define the countries of West Asia and aim to focus on the typical hair loss patterns, hair structure and characteristics, as well as possible FUE surgical complications of this ethnic group. Also mentioned is the hair loss psychology and expectations of these patients along with some possible explanation as to the prevalence of pronounced hair loss in patients of this ethic origin...
The popularity of FUE has greatly increased over the past decade and a half, and it continues to become more and more popular each day. What was once considered an acceptable procedure for only a limited number of cases has now become the standard for severe hair loss cases such as Norwood V and VI. As the attractiveness of FUE solutions intensified, so did the expectations of the patients, forcing surgeons to address the need for increased graft numbers in a limited surgical time frame. Thanks to enhanced technology and techniques, superior instrumentation, as well as the enriched skills of doctors and technicians, gigasessions of 4000 graft transplants or more in one session became possible. However, gigasessions are not without risk and are certainly not applicable to all cases. With gigasessions came a new problem: overharvesting and donor depletion and many cases of this have been documented in recent years. As a result, donor management and preservation have become the main focus of FUE surgeons as they revise FUE state-of-the-art criteria. This article will attempt to identify the difficulties and complications that can be encountered in the planning and execution of FUE in gigasessions and how to avoid them with a special emphasis on donor evaluation and capacity...
