clinic is one of the better known clinics in the New York area. Dr. Alan
Feller has good reputation as a FUHT strip hair transplant doctor and is
quite active in hair loss communities on the internet. His clinic is in
Great Neck, New York.
is also quite knowledgeable about FUE hair transplant. He has patented
at least 1 surgical tool that is designed to perform FUE procedures. Dr.
Feller is also not shy about sharing his views on various occasions in
our forum about this revolutionary procedure.
opinions, Dr. Feller believe that doctors should inform their patients
of the three destructive forces that can work against FUE, and these
forces are not present in STRIP cases:
heated debate between Dr. Feller and Dr. Woods, Dr. Feller has the
I only get interested in particular competitors when they make
questionable claims or intimations. You claim loudly that your technique
is better than the FUE technique of any competitor. That may or may not
be true. I simply challenge your claim. If you are going to go public
with such a pronouncement, then I can certainly challenge it on a public
forum. Which I have done, and continue to do. To date you have only
attacked me instead of supporting your claim.
I wonder, for all your “patient’s rights” rhetoric, do you provide
complete “Informed Consent”? Specifically, the fact that FUE grafts must
undergo 3 traumatic forces that strip grafts never endure:
(and a few other minor ones).
For those of you out there who have wondered why FUE has not yet put an
end to STRIP, it is because of these 3 detrimental forces. In the best
of hands these forces are minimized, that’s what my patents are all
about, but even so, yields are STILL lower than with strip surgery and
is why I believe that if large procedures are needed, they should be
done with strip, not FUE. ( The exception, of course, being patients
like Franklin who would rather never have a strip surgery again. That’s
a different matter).
Personally, I couldn’t care less what techniques Dr. Woods uses. I doubt
they are revolutionary or even interesting. But if he is going to claim
superiority in this field, he is going to have start by at least telling
his patients before surgery the true differences between strip surgery
and FUE surgery. Specifically, the limitations of FUE surgery.
Well, Dr. Woods. How about it? Do you inform your patients of these
three destructive FUE forces prior to surgery? 1. Torsion 2. Traction 3.
You see, HT doctors do not make patients sign “waivers” as Dr. Woods
loves to claim in his never ending effort to vilify other HT doctors.
What he clearly doesn’t understand is that patients CAN’T “waive” their
rights. That’s what makes them “rights”. And what he calls “rights”
aren’t actually “rights”.
What HT doctors actually give patients is an INFORMED CONSENT document
that TELL them what possible problems they might face should they decide
to go ahead with a procedure. It also INFORMS them, specifically, of the
downside of any procedure and that ALTERNATIVE treatments were discussed
(in some states). The three detrimental forces of FUE and their
resulting lower yields for FUE procedures must be included to have
offered full informed consent.

minimally invasive FUE hair transplant technique. No knife, no
scalpel, no stitches, no visible scarring. This technique can
work very well for both eyebrow and eyelash loss. Very often, 1
session is all it takes.
