Why We Shlepped to St. Louis Hair Transplant 360

Why did I schlep >1,300 miles with my hair transplant team?

If you were a top athlete or part of a high-performing athletic team, you’re always trying to improve your game mentally and physically. A surgeon and a surgical team are no different. But instead of hitting the gym, a performance camp, or “spring training,” where does a hair transplant team go to take a break from their days of surgery to “practice” and improve, acquire and share their wisdom and skills with their teammates and colleagues? 

They step out of the regular routine and attend a hands-on surgical workshop. Last month, the entire Bauman hair transplant team had a unique opportunity to attend “Hair Transplant 360” at St Louis University’s Center for Practical Anatomy & Clinical Experience (PACE), a hands-on cadaver workshop for both surgeons and their assistants organized by Dr. Sam Lam, Emina Vance and supported by the ISHRS International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. The thirteen of us left South Florida and headed to St. Louis MO. Up early and back late—the bus left the hotel at 6:30am and returned 6:30pm—each day was packed with about 10hrs of CME Continuing Medical Education specifically for hair transplant surgeons and their assistants. Topics presented and skills practiced included basic techniques to the most advanced therapeutic interventions, and even those team members who have decades of experience with over 10,000 patients and millions of grafts placed, had an amazing time.

It was an honor to be invited to be on the faculty with my esteemed hair transplant colleagues from all across the country and working with attendees at all stages of their careers, but all with a keen interest in advancing their hair transplant skills and aesthetic eye.

What skills and knowledge did we practice, learn and improve upon?

  • Ergonomics
  • Speed
  • Accuracy
  • New Techniques for better hair transplant results and growth survival.
  • Teamwork, Camaraderie, Synergy
  • Healing / Recovery / Improving Hair Growth+Graft Take Rates
  • The latest non-invasive prescription treatment modalities
  • Advances in patient comfort
  • …and much more!

Here's a brief video overview of our exciting, exhausting, educational and fun experience:

What is the Bauman Certified HairCoach Program?

What is the Bauman Certified HairCoach Program?

The Bauman Certified HairCoach Program is the brainchild of board-certified Hair Restoration Physician, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D. of Boca Raton, Florida.  For over two decades, he’s dedicated his entire professional career to helping those with hair loss. In addition, he’s been a champion of educating professionals and the general public interested in learning more about the causes of hair loss, effective treatments as well as the latest medical and surgical procedures in the fast changing and often confusing field of Hair Restoration.

Hair loss is a common concern for millions of men and women, but yet there are limited resources available to patients and professionals alike when it comes to effective treatments and procedures and a multitude of myths, misconceptions and misinformation. The HairCoach program was “born” out of Dr. Bauman’s well-wrought results-oriented "Bauman Protocols" which include scientifically rigorous hair loss evaluations, diagnosis, advanced treatments, obsessive follow-ups/results tracking and more.

What kind of topics are covered in HairCoach certification?

HairCoach offers information on male and female pattern hereditary hair loss and other alopecias such as traction alopecia, scarring types of alopecia, baldness prevention and more, common scalp problems like dandruff, itching, flaking, oily or dry scalp, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma hair regrowth preparation and application protocols, hair growth diagnosis and tracking with HairCheck trichometry and HairCam dermoscopy, hair restoration basics, FDA-approved and compounded medical therapies, non-chemical treatments like Low Level Laser Therapy, nutrition and nutraceuticals, proper hair care and scalp care and trichology principles, diagnostic tools and therapeutic regimens included in Scientific Scalp Makeovers™, cranial prosthetic devices, hair transplantation using NeoGraft FUE and the ARTAS robotic-assisted FUE system and much more.  Future therapies such as stem cell treatments, Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection (ALMI Hair Regrowth), growth factors, cell therapy, hair follicle cloning or rejuvenation will be discussed.

No one in the world expects that you can become fully versed in the evaluation and treatment of hair loss in one simple workshop or seminar. However, whether you are just starting your journey towards helping those struggling with hair loss, or you want to refine your skills in the latest techniques and technology, Dr. Bauman’s HairCoach Program has proven again and again to be a valuable investment. As a Certified HairCoach (or C.H.C.), a multitude of personnel, resources and training opportunities will be available for you over the long-run to ensure your success, including additional training, online resources, priority access to Dr. Bauman and his knowledgeable staff, published research, webinars and much more.

The jewel of the hair restoration industry, Dr. Bauman’s comprehensive and state-of-the-art facility is unmatched in its ability to help those with hair loss.  Taught by renowned hair transplant surgeon and board certified Hair Restoration Physician, Dr. Alan J.

Bauman, this lecture focused on one of the possible side effects of androgen (testosterone) replacement therapy: Hair Loss. For those men who are prone to hereditary male pattern hair loss, androgen replacement with testosterone may accelerate the process of hereditary hair thinning and baldness.

Mechanisms of action, medical evaluations, HairCheck hair growth tracking and treatments such as oral medications like finasteride and dutasteride, topical treatments like minoxidil 82M, laser therapy with LaserCap, hair transplantation in addition to nutritional supplementation are all part of the medical management of androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male pattern baldness). Anti-aging physicians should discuss the possibility of hair loss side-effects from androgen replacement with their male patients to whom they might prescribe testosterone.

At Bauman Medical Group, we accept referrals from physicians who would like to partner with us in the medical management of their hair loss patients.Anti-Aging physicians can email [email protected] or call 561-394-0024 to discuss and collaborate with ABHRS-certified and renowned hair loss physician, Dr. Alan J.
