Last week, after Alan J. Bauman, M.D. issued a public warning alerting consumers to the fact that unqualified surgeons may soon begin offering “NeoGraft FUE” procedures to unsuspecting patients, Spencer Kobren took some time to speak with the IAHRS accepted member about the many concerns surrounding this controversial hair transplant machine.
During the interview it was clearly stated that there needs to be a more honest approach to the marketing of this device, and that there is a serious potential to cause harm if this machine is irresponsibly sold to entry-level hair transplant practitioners.
Unfortunately, according to a recent statement made by David Walden, a Founder and Managing Director at Omni Medical (the company that now helps to market the NeoGraft), this appears, in our view, to be exactly how they plan to introduce the device to market. [Read more]

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) has come a long way since it was first introduced through The Bald Truth to North America by Australian hair transplant pioneer Dr. Ray Woods. Early adapters of the technique found it to be extremely labor-intensive when performed correctly, and limited by the number of grafts that can be safety harvested intact per procedure.
During the slow evolution of this technique, several automated devices have been introduced into the mix with varying degrees of success. However, no matter which device is used to help in expediting the extraction of intact follicular units, it’s important to note that all devices are completely dependant upon the skill of the operator.
One FUE device that has been heavily marketed and has been receiving a great deal of press lately, is the NeoGraft hair transplant machine. Unfortunately, for unsuspecting hair loss consumers, some of the claims being made by the manufacturers of this device, as well as by some practioners who have purchased the device, are, in our opinion, questionable at best.

IAHRS hair transplant pioneer Alan Bauman, M.D. will be joining Spencer and Dave to discuss a new and exciting breakthrough in surgical hair restoration.
The targeted removal of follicular unit grafts without the use of a scalpel is known as Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE). One major drawback, among others, of this procedure is that it’s extremely labor intensive which limits the number a grafts that can be moved in a single session which in turn dramatically increases the cost of FUE to the consumer.
Dr. Bauman is one the first hair transplant surgeons in the world to incorporate the new NeoGraft hair transplant device into his practice and is seeing very impressive results.
Fast, safe, efficient and cost effective FUE hair transplant procedures is what the manufacturers of the new NeoGraft hair transplant machine promise. But can the NeoGraft deliver?
Join us tonight to discuss this exciting breakthrough and to find out if in fact the NeoGraft will be a big part of the future of surgical hair restoration.
