Dr Julien Houle-Dorval

Having completed medical school at Sherbrooke University followed by a family medicine residency, I have been working as a full-time emergency room physician until 2021. Since then, I added medical aesthetics to my field of practice. I have been working as an ER doctor as well as a hair restoration physician at Drs. Hébert & Dorval Clinic in Montreal. I am also a member in standing order of the Collège des Médecins du Québec and of the Fédération des Omnipraticiens du Québec.

During an internship in aesthetic medicine under Dr. Yves Hébert’s supervision, I had the opportunity to assist a hair transplant surgery and it was at that moment that I had the certainty that performing hair transplantation could become a central element in my professional life. The technical complexity really piqued my interest, but also the opportunity to propose and deliver a treatment to the patient that is well in line with his/her physiology and with the aging of the face. In my opinion, this approach and practice remind me of a type of visual art, which has always been one of the reasons I have had an interest in medical aesthetics. Finally, on a more personal note, the work of a hair surgeon requires strong and sustained concentration, and to me to perform this painstaking work represents a certain form of meditation.

I thus completed an intensive 6-month internship with Drs. Hébert and Dorval, and at the end of the internship, I was authorized by the Collège des Médecins du Québec to perform hair transplants.

I feel privileged to be a Staff Physician in Drs. Hébert & Dorval’s team. My interest in the field only continues to grow, and by attending multiple practical and academic conventions, I am working towards obtaining an added certification from the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, an organization recognized around the word as a reference for the best standards of quality in the field.

It would be a pleasure for me to meet you to answer any questions you may have, and to discuss a personalized treatment plan that will meet your expectations, all the while taking into consideration the limits for optimal and durable results.
