Dr. van Eeden opened the Arte Novi Clinic in 2006 and is currently acting as the Medical Director and Head Surgeon of this clinic.

THE TEAM

It is generally accepted in Hair Restoration Surgery that the Team assisting the Physician Hair Restoration Surgeon is the single most critical pivot on which a successful Hair Restoration procedure rest.... the Surgeon is only as good as his Team allows him to be....

The ABM - American Board of Medicine considers a Hair Restoration Procedure as a complex Medical and Surgical procedure, lasting longer that four hours and where more than one health professional is involved. This definition puts high responsibility and demand on the HR surgeon and his staff selected to perform the HR procedure in line with International standard.

The Medical and Technical Team of the Arte Novi Clinic were hand-picked and trained according to the standard of the ISHRS. Team members attend the International ISHRS conference for Surgical Assistants and different specialised workshops in a regular base. Team Members are following an academic training program and are awarded with Diplomas of competence as part of an ongoing training and Continuous Medical Education (CME) program.

We are fortunate to have fourteen trained staff working in two surgical teams. Most of these members have three years or more experience in the HR Team.
