During HairCon 2019, the annual conference of the Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons of India, a “No To Ghost Surgery By Technicians” pledge was taken by all the attending delegates. They also formed a local ethical committee to address this issue. You can read more about this on our Hair Transplant Black Market page.
As a responsible member of the Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons (AHRS), India, I hereby solemnly pledge, that:

- I will maintain a transparent process of charging to patients.
