Your doctor will determine if you need a pre screening or a health check before surgery.

History and physical prior to a hair transplant

History and physical prior to a hair transplant is not necessary. We generally ask about your medical history and do a cursory examination but once we know that you are healthy, we can do the transplant

Is a health check up necessary before a hair transplant?

jamario,

If you are in good health a check or blood work is not necessary. However, if there are any issues then a general check would be advised.
