Hair Growth Treatments on NBC's TODAY SHOW

NBC's TODAY SHOW aired their segment this morning on "Battling Baldness."     They reviewed the common treatment of male and female pattern hair loss using fda-approved therapies: Hair Transplantation, Rogaine and Propecia, as well as the newest FDA-cleared medical device for hair growth, a hand-held laser that delivers low level laser therapy.    Several of our patient's interviews were included in the show: Joan, Robert and Jeffrey.   One of our patients, Dr. Martin Edep, who was interviewed did not make it into the final story.   I will post more information about the various patients and their treatments in the near future.   NBC reporter, Janice Lieberman, wrote this article on her iVillage blog:

Orlando Live Surgery Workshop March 2007

We had a busy time at the ISHRS Live Surgery Workshop in Orlando this past week.   Lectures all morning, Live Surgery each afternoon.   Highlights were new magnifying instruments for hair transplantation, LaserComb's FDA clearance, Laser Therapy for Wound Healing in Hair Transplants, Eyelash and Eyebrow Transplantation, artistic hairline designs, Follicular-Unit Extraction, and more.  Exhausting, but worth it!   More details to follow.
