Trough the attending of meeting in New York, Los Angeles and Hot Springs, Arkansas, prior to the establishment of the ISHRS in 1993, his knowledge was further enhanced through the exchange of ideas with other medical professionals interested in hair loss and its restoration. Dr. Fremont was one of the first members to join ISHRS having already starting his teaching program of training other Canadian and International physicians his own techniques in hair restoration. He was frequently requested to lecture at various professional colleges and at hospital rounds to plastic surgery residents. After receiving a medical license in Israel in 1987 Dr. Fremont opened the first Hair Transplant Clinic in Israel and then began satellite clinics in Hungary, Austria, Belgium and the United Kingdom. Today some of his students are pillars within the ISHRS and are themselves wearing the restored hair he gave them.
