David M. Alpeter, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. - New York
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, after having done well over 4000 hair transplantations, he appreciates the combination of artistry and science that goes into every procedure. "Creating a hairline that is completely natural and compliments the patient's facial structure is paramount. At the same time, there is no question that the more hair that is moved, the better the result".
David Alpeter, M.D. is board certified in General Surgery and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). He is a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) as well as the American Society of General Surgeons, the Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons and the American College of Managed Care Medicine.
He is licensed to practice medicine in the states of New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Illinois, Arizona, California and Washington.
Anthony Mollura, M.D., I.S.H.R.S. - New York
You could say that Dr. Anthony Mollura has an artist's eyes and a surgeon's hands. Perhaps this is because he was at the epicenter of the artistic world while studying medicine in Italy at the University of Rome. "What better place to study and appreciate art than Rome and Florence," stated Dr. Mollura, "The experience helped me develop a good artistic eye." His appreciation for balance, composition and aesthetics are an integral part of what makes him such a talented hair transplant surgeon.
Dr. Mollura attended the esteemed Wagner College in New York where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Bacteriology. Following graduation from medical school at the University of Rome, Dr. Mollura spent one year in Beijing working in the impoverished areas of China with the United Nations World Food Program. He returned to the United States to complete his internship at Coney Island Hospital in New York, followed by his residency program affiliated with the School of Medicine at the State University of New York. He then set up a family practice while also working in the emergency department of Franklin Hospital Medical Center in Nassau County, New York.
Although Dr. Mollura had a successful family practice and enjoyed the intensity of the hospital ER, something was still missing. It was then that he met a colleague who practiced hair restoration surgery. "I was instantly attracted not only to the surgical aspect of the procedure but also the artistic aspect," said Dr. Mollura, "It combined what I was most interested in - Medicine, Surgery and Art." Realizing he was at a crossroads, he made the bold decision to close his family practice, leave the hospital and become a hair transplant surgeon. "This was a deciding point in my life. I had to make a choice that would affect not only my life but also my family's," he reflected. "but knowing how gratifying it would be to see the impact you could make in someone's life by restoring their hair, along with their confidence and self esteem, made the decision an easy one." After performing nearly 3,500 hair transplant procedures, he knows he has found his true calling.
For Dr. Mollura, the most rewarding aspect of being a hair transplant surgeon is seeing the difference he makes in his patient's lives. "It's extremely rewarding when a patient conveys to me how grateful they are for changing their lives," smiled Dr. Mollura, "People who never left their home without a baseball cap suddenly take their hats off and see the sunshine." Then with a laugh he adds, "I've saved lives in the emergency room without even a thank you from the patient. I restore someone's hairline and the next thing I know, they're asking me to be the Godfather to their first born."
Bosley New York is proud to have Dr. Mollura on board its medical staff to share his expertise.
