Hi Dr. I have been reading about several treatments for hairloss for a number of months as I am also a hairloss sufferer. I was understandably excited by the ‘A-Cell’ breakthrough news you made several months ago but was also aware that there were several years before we could really start to consider such a treatment (if successful!)
However, I was searching the internet earlier and I came across a Press Release which sent me here…
I understand you are busy, however I was just a bit shocked to see that a surgeon was already beginning to use the A-Cell treatment and I was wondering if you could share your opinions about this?
Thank you for your time and for the effort you put in to helping out hairloss sufferers such as myself
Some doctors are already offering this to patients and claiming results that aren’t able to be verified. What I see in that page you linked to appears to be a photographic misrepresentation and a hair comb-over in the crown. The release says, “Patients will not only experience significant hair re-growth in just six months, but the wound where donor hair is taken and transplanted will heal with little or no signs of a scar within a few weeks.”
That is a bold claim to make for an unproven treatment. If there were real results, hair counts would have been done. If I claimed a cure for cancer and showed an unhappy patient before my treatment and a happy patient after my treatment, would you believe me?
