what you need to know (Hair Transplant)

posted by JoeTillman, Vancouver, BC Canada, 13.05.2016, 19:17

I'd appreciate it if you would drop the condescending attitude along with the victimization line. If you pretend to be a victim, you become one, but it only serves as a red herring as does your concern about whom I work with. Politics is also useless and serves no purpose. Stay on point, please.

The only "opinions" are about the quality of your videos. "Opinions" are not related to disclaimers and the law.

Do you show your patients the punch you use to score their follicular units (if you even use a punch)? Do you discuss with them the potential for poor growth? Do you discuss with them the fact that if they have undiagnosed keloid issues that unsightly scarring may develop? How would you deal with a patient with undiagnosed lichen planar piloris, which may manifest BECAUSE of the very hair transplant surgery that is about to be performed? Do you discuss these very real possibilities with your patients at all? Do they know what size punches you use? For instance, if a patient asked about punch size and you told the patient that you use a 1.2mm punch then that patient can decide, because they are informed, whether or not to consent to moving forward with surgery. That is informed consent and is not a matter of opinion. It is the very definition.

In Australia, you do not have to discuss these issues. Do you not think it is necessary regardless? In North America and the EU, even if the doctor feels it is not necessary, they MUST present this information before surgery can proceed. They have no choice in the matter thus this is not a difference of opinion.

"" why don't you expose this ? "....same ol answer ..fear of legal retribution for telling the truth"

Then they are misinformed, potentially by your own campaign of warning patients against gag orders that you now admit do not exist. That is the crux of our discussion, or at least what my discussion is. There is no conspiracy by "the man" to keep patients down.

Informed consent. It is one of the basics of proper medical care and goes hand in hand with "do no harm".

Dr. Woods, in the interest of disclosure for all and to show that you are truly transparent, please tell us two things.

1. Do you discuss possible complications of FUE surgery with each patient before you begin surgery? Such complications can be keloid, lichen planopilaris, pitting, cobble stoning, ridging, shock loss, etc? It can be a simple matter of poor growth or as complicated as a cardiac reaction to adrenaline injections.

2. What size punches do you use for your procedures?

You won't find another clinic on the planet that won't talk about these issues so let's put your transparency to the test.
