• The Ethical, Legal and emotional Implications of Keeping Hair Transplant Patients in The Dark: One couple’s Harrowing Experience

    When it comes to hair transplant surgery or medicine of any kind the maxim Primum non nocere or “first, do no harm” is one of the principal precepts of bioethics that all healthcare students are taught and is a fundamental principle throughout the world of medicine. However, for some in the hair transplant industry this basic principle does not seem to apply.

    The importance of being your own patient advocate or having someone to advocate for you during the day of surgery can never be overemphasized. Remember always go with your gut and if you feel uncomfortable about any part of your experience, speak up.

    Spencer Kobren and Joe Tillman speak with TBT caller Joanne who describes her and her fiancé’s horrific experience with one the best known large chain hair transplant clinics in the country.

    If you are considering hair transplant surgery, this is a show you don’t want to miss!

  • ARTAS: Perfecting More Precise Graft Implantation

    Cosmetic surgery of any kind is in no way an exact science. Besides certain physiological variables that exist from one patient to the next, there are tremendous skill set differences and basic human variables that enter into the equation as well. Currently hair transplantation is a team effort and the result of the surgery is only as good as the weakest member of the team.

    However, if there was a way to virtually eliminate the human factor, it only makes sense that the overall quality and consistency of hair transplant surgery will improve tremendously.

    Dr. Gabe Zingaretti, Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Restoration Robotics and lead developer of the ARTAS discusses the continued evolution of the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system and how in the very near future, the robot will remove one more human variable from the equation that in many cases makes or breaks the final outcome of the surgery…The implantation of follicular units.
