SalonB Client and Brain Cancer Survivor, Genny Robinson

We are excited to have SalonB client, Genny Robinson, here at Bauman Medical today. Her amazing brain cancer survival story and her participation in Duke University’s highly publicized experimental poliovirus treatment motivated us to “jump into action” to help her hair loss situation. Left with significant permanent hair loss from her aggressive cancer treatments that also included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, Genny was referred to medical hair loss expert Dr. Alan Bauman at Bauman Medical for evaluation by celebrity hair stylist and philanthropist Martino Cartier, founder of the non-profit Friends Are By Your Side charity.  Follow her progress at SalonB's Facebook page.

Dr. Bauman believes that eventually, Genny may be a candidate for hair transplantation; however, her current medical condition and medications preclude her from undergoing a hair transplant at this time. In the interim and as an alternative, Bauman Medical’s non-profit charitable foundation will be underwriting the costs of a state-of-the-art human-hair scalp prosthesis called CNC developed by Cesare Ragazzi in Italy. Since her last visit to SalonB at BaumanMedical just two months ago for her evaluation and measurements, the team at Bologna, Italy-based Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories has been hard at work, meticulously hand-crafting Genny’s custom CNC hair and scalp prosthetic. Today, it will be hand-delivered from Italy by Cesare Ragazzi CEO Stefano Ospitali and applied by the SalonB team at Bauman Medical in Florida.

Considered a medical device by the Italian Ministry of Health, the CNC hair replacement system is more than just a medical wig. CNC is internationally known as the most sophisticated, highest quality, medical-grade non-surgical hair replacement system in the world. Stay tuned for a “behind the scenes” look at the application and styling of Genny’s CNC hair system being performed at SalonB at Bauman Medical Group in Boca Raton—the exclusive medical provider of Cesare Ragazzi Trichology evaluations, products and services, including the CNC Hair Replacement System in Florida.

Classified as a medical device by the Italian Ministry of Health (Ministero della Salute), each and every unique Cesare Ragazzi CNC hair prosthesis is handmade in Italy with the highest quality unprocessed European hair, stitched strand by strand, in an ultra-thin medical-grade FDA-cleared synthetic base, customized exactly to your scalp for a perfect fit. Because an exact mold is made of the size, shape and contour of the scalp in the affected area, the prosthesis is totally customizable to your individual needs. Once made and applied using a medical-grade FDA-cleared adhesive, the hair is professionally cut and styled for a seamlessly undetectable and beautiful result. Adverse reactions are avoided because all materials used are patch-tested for skin compatibility. With monthly maintenance and proper care, each Cesare Ragazzi CNC hair prosthesis can be expected to last 4-5 years—much longer than traditional hairpieces, wigs or other hair systems.
