Hair Transplant Docs “Clone” Hair – Is MatriStem® MicroMatrix The Next Great Hair Restoration Breakthrough?

Regenerative medicine innovator ACell Inc. might just be responsible for advancing surgical hair restoration to heights once thought to be science fiction.

IAHRS accepted member Jerry Cooley M.D., and New York hair transplant surgeon Gary Hitzig M.D. say that they have become the first medical doctors to successfully “clone” hair using the FDA-cleared wound healing powder MatriStem®. If in fact this proves to be as effective as Cooley and Htizig claim, this regenerative powder originally formulated to help heal diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers and pressure ulcers, will catapult the rapid advancement of permanent hair restoration.

Dr. Cooley was kind enough to grant Spencer Kobren an exclusive interview to discuss his findings:

    Oh my gosh I hope this works. I’m 28 and have lost like half of my hair (just got a scalp biopsy Monday so awaiting those results to get a clearer picture of what’s going on with me) and I hate what I look like. I know there’s all this talk about acceptance but I don’t think I could ever get to that point. I just want some regrowth. So fingers crossed this, PRP, or something else works out to help hair loss.

    I don’t believe your claim that Dr. Gho failed to bring this to fruition, but Acell is real. Dr. Gho recently published a 2 for 1 hair cloning technique in a peer reviewed journal that yields a new FU in the recipient area along with regrowing the original hair in the donor. The technique is 95% consistent, and the newly regrown donor follicles can be reharvested in future procedures.

    Can you provide me a link to Dr. Cooley’s published research experiments so I can get a better idea of what he is claiming he can do right now in his clinic? I don’t get it. Is he saying he is able to pluck beard hair, and the hair grows back and creates a follicle in the recipient area? That seems to be miles behind what Gho has already been doing in his clinic for years. Who would want beard hair on their head when they already have an unlimited supply of scalp hair?
