We are proud to announce that DHI Scotland is becoming SENECA.

The first concerned the diffusion of innovation and medical achievements of the outstanding surgeons active in the group’s clinics. And the second, the rapid rise of medical tourism and the possibilities it entails for our country.

The speeches and workshops of the first day of the conference were held at the “home” of Seneca Medical Group in Athens. At the group’s state-of-the-art clinic in the Athens Tower, on Friday June 14, the group’s work was holistically presented and the good practices that have contributed to its success were disseminated. A success that is confirmed not only by the many awards and the rapid growth of the group, but also by the fact that SENECA is the only purely Greek company in the field of hair transplantation which has a presence abroad with its own and partner clinics.

Pioneering interventions in live broadcast, speeches by leading scientists and specialized professionals from Greece and Scotland composed a very exciting scene. Doctors from all over the world have benefited from the long-term experience as well as the innovative methods of Seneca’s potential, receiving the information directly from the source and in the most direct way. The three demanding incidents that took place on Friday deserve special mention. Conference participants had the opportunity to witness live hair transplantation in a transgender case, hair transplantation in an afrotype case and finally beard transplantation.

“All three of these cases require great experience and expertise, characteristics that distinguish all Seneca doctors” noted George Gounnaris, Scientific Head of Clinics of the SENECA Medical Group, who particularly emphasized the importance of correct diagnosis, medical training and of the support Seneca patients receive throughout their healing journey. “We ensure the very good results that testify that we are pioneers by constantly incorporating innovative techniques and taking into account the latest scientific developments in the field of hair transplantation. The most important factor of all is the fact that, in all our clinics, transplants are carried out exclusively by specialized doctors and are supported by nurses trained and certified by us. The colleagues who work in our clinics are those recommended by the Medical Association: either dermatologists or plastic surgeons specialized in dealing with scalp problems.”

“We keep the quality in all our clinics the same, thanks to protocols that are followed reverently, and procedures that are strictly applied. In this way, we achieve excellent results in every operation, while at the same time we are able to provide completely personalized treatments without ever compromising on quality” emphasized Mr. Giorgos Kottaridis, CEO of Seneca Medical Group. Challenge and conquest of enormous proportions, since Seneca has already expanded with new partnerships in France and Israel, while the medical facilities operating in Athens, Thessaloniki, Kalamata, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Bucharest and Dublin are very sophisticated and modern.

The medical services as well as the scientific staff of our country with their high level, are competitive advantages for the development of health and wellness tourism – and Seneca Medical Group is well aware of this. In recent years, the Group has focused on the field of medical tourism, achieving impressive results (40% of the patients who choose Seneca come from abroad, while the target for the coming years is to increase the percentage to 60%). Greece as a rising force in medical tourism, the challenges but also the resulting opportunities for further development of the Greek economy therefore reasonably occupied the delegates of the scientific conference of the Seneca Medical Group, as its example is typical of the rising trend of travel with the aim of well-being , but also indicative of the good timing for the creation of similar initiatives in the Greek ecosystem.

Mrs. Sophia Zacharakis, Minister of Social Cohesion and Family, Mr. George Patoulis, President of the Hellenic Health Tourism Council (ELITOUR) and the Athens Medical Association, Mr. George Markopoulos, President of of the Regional Union of Municipalities of Attica and Mrs. Androniki Kalfa, Marketing Manager of Marketing Greece.

The second day of the conference found the participants at the Wyndham Grand Athens hotel, where on Saturday, June 15, the marketing options that have ensured Seneca Medical Group the ability to transform lives and restore the confidence of more and more people were presented and discussed. Creative campaigns that resonated with the public, communication channels and forums that promote dialogue and the dissemination of information gave the audience the opportunity to understand the multi-layered communication network in which Seneca Medical Group operates, but also to appreciate the importance of creativity and the strong partnerships to ensure its continuous upward trajectory.

Emphasis was placed on the part of the personalized experience, as well as on the points that are the “key” for effective communication and the creation of a relationship of trust with the patient. “When we started Seneca Medical Group we had one goal: To create something different” stated Ms. Chrysa Giannakakou, Head Of International Sales & Customer Care of Seneca. “This is none other than the unique patient experience, which means that we are with the patient from the first moment of contact, we stand by him at every step of the treatment journey – but also after it. Diversity characterizes Seneca’s customer community and for us it is important to establish a relationship of trust within a safe environment. For us, all our patients are equal.”

Yet, when it comes to hair transplants, there is no need to risk travelling to an unknown clinic as one of the best and most reputable centres in Europe for the treatment of hair loss is well established in Scotland.

The award-winning Seneca Medical Group is considered to be the number one hair transplant company in Europe due to its elite hair restoration services and innovative techniques.

Through extensive research, accurate diagnosis, comprehensive training and cutting-edge treatments, the company remains at the forefront of innovation in the field of hair restoration and is dedicated to constantly developing new techniques and tools to address the challenges of hair loss.

Seneca Medical Group has 35 years of experience in treating hair loss and to date has treated over 43,000 hair loss patients and trained and certified more than 160 doctors and nurses in hair restoration treatments and procedures.

The company’s diagnostic centres in Edinburgh and Aberdeen and clinic in Glasgow are home to some of the most well-equipped clinics and diagnostic centres for hair loss treatments and hair transplantations in Europe.

Seneca Scotland’s multi-awarded team offer personalised treatment for each client through their Total Care system of diagnosis and treatment that allows each patient to receive the most appropriate transplant according to their needs.

The group offers a free diagnosis through the Total Care system to evaluate the problem, identify the causes and formulate a personalised treatment plan.

Thanks to the trained and certified staff and the most advanced systems available at the Seneca clinics in Scotland, patients have at their disposal at every stage of treatment, the most appropriate and personalised care.

Hair transplants are now widely available but techniques vary, which is why it is worth opting for the Direct FUE Hair Transplant Surgery offered by the Seneca Medical Group.

This is an advanced medical procedure for effectively addressing hair loss. With hair transplant results that are expected to last a lifetime, it offers a natural appearance that helps to instil confidence in those who choose it. 

Unlike other techniques, the Direct FUE Hair Transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve graft processing or the creation of reception holes prior to graft placement.

Instead, it utilises a specialised implanter device to ensure precise control over the direction, depth, and angle of each graft, resulting in a 100% natural outcome.

This technique effectively addresses permanent hair loss caused by factors like androgenetic alopecia and offers a more natural and dense look. It also causes less trauma to the scalp, leading to faster recovery times, which makes it arguably a superior choice for many patients.

Seneca treatment is then carried out in two stages. In the first, the hair follicles are checked, selected and then painlessly extracted. They are taken from the back of the patient’s head and kept in appropriate conditions and temperature until their gradual replanting with Seneca Implanter begins in the second and final stage.

The special solution that the follicles are kept in before implantation enhances their growth. Seneca does not split nor cut the grafts as minimum handling achieves the maximum growth rate.

Seneca’s highly trained staff can achieve the implantation of around 9,000 hairs per session and it is a procedure that can be done in a few hours and without hassle.

The advantages include the specially-designed and patented tools and equipment through which the doctor directly implants the hair follicles giving a 100% natural result and high density. It is considered to be the most effective method of treating hair loss with its effects expected to last lifelong.

Awards won by Seneca include International Business Excellence Award 2018, the Best Hair Clinic Award 2018, the International Hair Clinic of the year at the IMTJ 2018, the 2018-2019-2020-2021 Patient Service Award from WhatClinic.com, the Hair loss Clinic of the Year 2018 at the Scottish Beauty Industry Awards, the Business Excellence Award from Bizz Awards 2018, the European Business Award in 2019, the Eagles of Health Award 2021, the Healthcare Business Award 2022 and the Scotland Trichology Clinic of the Year & Hair Transplant Clinic of the Year 2022/23 and the Aesthetic Excellence Awards 2023.

So, if you are worried about hair loss, do not hesitate. Contact the Seneca team and book an appointment at one of the clinics in Glasgow or Edinburgh. 

FACED with receding hairlines, international rugby player Tim Visser and professional boxer Paddy Reilly had no hesitation in opting for a hair transplant.

After researching various treatments and practitioners, both chose to be treated at Seneca Medical Group’s Glasgow clinic and would recommend the company’s state-of-the-art, pain-free treatment.

Visser in fact found it so relaxing he fell asleep during the procedure!

“Actually, it was a very wonderful experience and I fell asleep when they took the hairs out of the donor area,” said Tim who played for Scotland. “It’s very comfortable and the doctors are very reassuring. I was watching them do it, but I couldn’t feel a thing. It was remarkably easy.”

Although he wasn’t particularly self-conscious about his receding hairline, Tim had no hesitation about undergoing a hair transplant.

“I think it is very normal nowadays for men to get it done,” he said. “When I realised, I could make my hair better, then why would I not?”

After researching the clinics offering treatments, he concluded that Seneca was “one of the best out there” – a conclusion that was confirmed by his treatment.

“I quickly realised how professional a set-up it is,” said Tim. “My consultation in Melville Street in Edinburgh was fantastic. It’s a great location, a beautiful building and the staff are very professional. I was made very welcome on arrival and the consultant explained what would happen and the best approach for my hair.

“We decided there and then about what exactly we would do. It was all very smooth and very customer focused, which was good to see, and the aftercare was excellent.”

Professional boxer Paddy Reilly trains hard and looks after his appearance but was becoming self-conscious about his receding hairline.

However, while he wanted to address the problem, he was initially apprehensive about having a hair transplant – only to find it was like “going to your pal’s house”.

“When I came in at the start, I was quite worried about being in discomfort and pain, but I couldn’t feel anything at all,” he said. “I didn’t even feel the anaesthetic jags as they were just a small prick to the skin. I was really surprised and over the moon with what’s happened and the detail in the hairline. It was exactly what I was looking for and I am happy with the outcome. The guys are brilliant.”

Before the treatment Paddy said his hair had started receding quite badly and he realised this could only grow worse as he grew older.

“I look after myself and I am always in the gym, but I was a wee bit self-conscious about my hairline and I just wanted to get it filled in a bit,” he said.

“I was nervous, but it is just like going into your pal’s house as they are very friendly, they offer you drinks and there’s a relaxed atmosphere. Everybody is so professional and down-to-earth, and they make you feel at home. I trust them and recommend it to anybody that needs work done.  The aftercare is fantastic too.”

Paddy and Tim are just two of the many thousands of people Seneca Medical Group has treated for hair loss. With a track record of over 35 years of experience, Seneca has provided effective treatment to more than 43,000 people suffering from hair loss, while also training and certifying more than 160 doctors and nurses in hair restoration procedures.
