The six of us will be dividing our time between my HSC offices and a second clinical site here in metro Denver. The 60 participants will be divided into two groups so that each can optimize the powered-FUE surgical instruction. This is a bit of a different format for ISHRS workshops; my HSC team and I are most excited to help launch it.
It has been difficult for hair transplant surgeons to learn the FUE follicular unit extraction hair transplant technique. New events like FUE-Palooza, FUECON, Live Hair Transplant Surgery Webcasts and other live surgery workshops go a long way to helping doctors get exposed to new hair transplant instruments and techniques for FUE. I would expect to see ARTAS FUE Robot, NeoGraft and SAFE-Scribe demonstrated at FUE-Palooza. Dr. Ken Williams of California is scheduled to be lecturing and demonstrating FUE with NeoGraft at FUE-Palooza. I hope that interested physicians learning more about FUE will take their education further than a simple weekend course and seek out the training they need from those of us in the field who have extensive experience with FUE. --Dr. Alan J.
