Dr. Gorana Kuka was born in Belgrade, Serbia and graduated from the School of Medicine, University of Belgrade, then specialized in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Immediately after graduation and internship, she started working in the Special Hospital Colic, the biggest and most prestigious clinic for cosmetic surgery in Serbia and the region. During her residency training, she expressed interest in hair transplantation, especially FUE techniques, and in order to receive the best training, she traveled around Europe and the world – in France, Spain, Belgium, Ireland, Germany, Turkey and The United States. The most important learning experiences were during her stay in the offices of renowned surgeons in New York and Miami. It was there that Dr. Kuka learned how to treat women suffering from hair loss from Dr. Antonella Tosti at the University of Miami, considered the greatest expert in this field. She has attended numerous workshops in order to improve her techniques.
In addition to hair transplants, Dr. Kuka specializes in surgical techniques of transplantation of the eyebrows, mustache and beard. She uses the latest diagnostic techniques to determine the causes of hair loss, and then define proper treatment. She also applies less invasive methods of treatment of hair loss, such as medical treatment, mesotherapy, PRP therapy (therapy with platelets and growth factors), corticosteroid therapy, and laser treatments (Low Level Laser Hair Therapy). She is trained in Paris to work on the NeoGraft device which is known worldwide as the most innovative device for FUE technique

So far, she has conducted experimental studies of the donor area after FUE, use of PRP therapy in the treatment of alopecia areata, the role of adipose tissue in the treatment of hair loss, and the reasons for better graft survival after transplantation of hair. Her own technique for the correction of scalp scars by combining fat tissue and hair transplants was presented at a congress of the ISHRS in Chicago in September 2015. She is also the author of several important medical papers published in medical journals.
With Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, she founded the Women’s Center for Hair Loss, a specialized clinic for the treatment of hair loss in women, which has three locations- Miami, New York and Belgrade. This office provides the expertise of two eminent experts in the treatment of hair loss. Also she is the director of a prestigious training course for doctors who want to learn how to perform hair transplantation. The three-day course held in Miami at co-director Dr. Epstein’s office provides students the opportunity to see and participate actively in a number of operations. The uniqueness of the course is to train attendees in FUE techniques, as well as training in medical management. Dr. Gorana Kuka has so far trained several doctors in hair restoration surgery.
In addition to hair transplantation, her interest is in cosmetic surgery of the face and body, fat grafting, as well as minimally invasive procedures in plastic surgery.

She is very grateful to her mentors – surgeons who shared their knowledge with her. She is the author of the website Hair Center Serbia with the aim to provide as much information about hair, hair loss and treatment options for all who suffer from hair loss. The site helps doctors and other health professionals to learn more about this topic.

Hair transplantation requires harmonious teamwork. To make a good, efficient and harmonious team that will share the same values, inspiration and creativity, and strive for a common goal, requires a long time to develop in each professional. Hair transplant procedures involve several hours of demanding and very precise work, and when that time is spent with a motivated, expert and professional team, the patient gets the impression of a beautiful, positive atmosphere. All team members are carefully selected and trained to be able to participate in this procedure and share the same passion for this work. We are proud of the team that we have built, the way we approach work that we love and devote ourselves to fully, wishing that every patient gets the impression of a special relationship that we have towards them. The doctor determines the cause of hair loss and treatment, as well as the hair transplant plan. The assistants are an important part of hair transplantation and they all have underwent complete training in order to perform it at the highest standard.
Hair Center Serbia is the only center for hair transplantation in Serbia and the region, which has the NeoGraft device that performs FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique automatically. NeoGraft was created after several years of the collaborative work of doctors and technologists who wanted to make hair transplant procedures the most efficient. Dr Gorana Kuka was trained to work on this modern device, and can provide training to physicians who are interested in learning FUE techniques. Also, as a result of Dr. Gorana Kuka’s work, soon will launched a new machine called the “E system” which is patented. The “E system” allows a simpler and more efficient approach to FUE hair transplantation while the grafts are of better quality. At our clinic we perform the latest diagnostics and individualized analysis of hair loss, and also effective, cutting-edge methods of treatment for hair loss – medical treatment, Mesotherapy, PRP therapy, laser therapy, and corticosteroid therapy. Women who suffer from hair loss are examined and treated with regular follow-up of their condition. Several procedures which are very delicate and specific make a special part of our practice, that include: eyebrow transplants, beard transplants, sideburn transplants, and the correction of previous procedures (correction of unnatural-looking frontal hairline “doll’s-hair” phenomenon), surgical hairline advancement, body hair transplants, and scar repair. Also, other doctors and health care professionals who would like to learn about hair transplant procedures are welcome at our clinic to get familiar with the techniques and learn how to do themselves this wonderful procedure. Hair transplantation training courses which Dr. Gorana Kuka is the director will be organized twice a year in Miami. What makes us different is a constant desire for improvement, commitment and love of medicine and surgery and devotion to our patients. A large number of satisfied patients testify about our work.
