Spencer Kobren speaks with IAHRS accepted member and current ISHRS President, Jerry Cooley M.D. about ACell MatriStem, a product that some are saying is the most groundbreaking development in the fight against hair loss since the FDA approval of Propecia.
Listen To Part 1 of The Exclusive Interview
Jerry Cooley, MD: I started working with this wound healing product about a year and half ago, and initially got some promising results. It’s taken me definitely some time to understand it and understand what worked well and what didn’t, as well as just to see long term results. One of the things I’ve been doing in the last few months is just making a real concerted effort to bring people back in, which is not really that easy, but just to really look very closely at my results and I’ve just gotten that much more excited about it.

Fear mongering anti-Propecia videos and websites are popping up all over the internet making the decision to effectively treat hair loss even more confusing. Should consumers be legitimately concerned by claims of permanent long term adverse side effects from the drug, or are these videos and websites simply agenda driven anti-Propecia propaganda?
The bottom line: Out of more than 30,000 patients who were prescribed Propecia, not a single one has ever complained of long-term irreversible side effects of any kind.

Let’s face it: most of us are not physically or emotionally equipped to peacefully accept our hair loss and seamlessly transition into baldness. Not every one of us is born with the physical and mental statures of bald iconic legends like Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, or Chris Daughtry, who can wear the look of baldness with natural ease and still draw hundreds of millions of dollars in box office revenues, allure screaming fans, or stage mind-blowing rock shows half-filled with half-naked supermodel-caliber chicks ready and willing to get funky backstage.
Yes, for the vast majority of us hair loss sufferers, witnessing the daily erosion of our hair, arguably the key proponent of our physical appearance to the world, is on par with experiencing a long, swift kick in the nuts. It hurts, period. Sometimes, in fact very often, the emotional debilitation caused by our hair loss paired with our desire to bring a level of correction to this reprehensible biological defect is so severe that we commit ourselves to today’s most aggressive hair loss solution on the hair loss solution spectrum: surgical hair restoration.

Politico.com is talking about vice presidential candidate Joe Biden. They’re not discussing his policies or evaluating his level of experience on foreign policy, and they didn’t even mention his running mate, presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Well, maybe that’s because Barack still has a full head of hair.
What the Politico article is talking about is Biden’s Helmet, the term they’re using to describe the senator’s current hairstyle. Apparently, Biden had a hair transplant when he was younger, with less than aesthetically pleasing results..
