Dwayne Berg is a brain cancer survivor, but Dwayne though happy to be alive was left disfigured in spite of the best intentions of his treating doctors. Surgery removed his brain tumor and the following radiation was to prevent return of the cancer. The radiation was effective but burned his scalp skin and left a hole in his skull. This was treated with bone grafting and skin grafting as shown in his pictures below. Dwayne was devastated, he had tried to hide the defects under a towel with a ball cap or a headband. He didn’t want to go out in public.
Dr. Brian Goertz and his team at Hair Transplant Seattle were able to improve Dwayne’s appearance significantly with hair transplant surgery. Dwayne has hair loss from the radiation as well as Norwood Class 5 male pattern balding.
Dwayne has allowed Dr. Brian Goertz to share his before and after pictures on his website in hopes that it will help other cancer survivors with hair loss. In addition, Dwayne hopes that it will help medical doctors who treat cancer survivors that have hair loss to learn about Dr. Goertz and what he can do to help restore their patient’s hair and their confidence.
