what you need to know (Hair Transplant)

"Done correctly , serious or significant scarring will not, and has never occurred in 25 years.

When the nasty scarring and side effects occur, there is a good reason for it."

I'm not asking if it has happened. I'm asking if you inform your patients that scarring, as well as other side effects, CAN happen. There is a big difference between the two and you are required by the laws of your own country and state to inform your patients of these potential side effects.

"Can be avoided, but way too much work , its too skillful and too can the clinics operate without unskilled cheap labour...."

You're not the only doctor in the world doing the procedure yourself but regardless, your point is moot and has no bearing on the issue.

"Trust me, if I were doing what they were all doing, patients would be signing a telephone book of disclaimers as well..but I am not, never have, and never will subject a patient to that kind of "äcceptable risk " you are so passionately defending."

I am not defending anything. I am dismantling your claim that "every" doctor that is not you requires "legal forms" before surgery so they can sue their patients if they talk about being unhappy. I am dismantling the notion that your refusal to require legal forms before surgery is an indicator of quality. The reason why you don't require legal forms before surgery is because NSW does not see FUE as surgery thus you are not required by your regulatory body to obtain signed informed consent. Most doctors in North America and the EU do. This is a fact but you are using it to your marketing advantage as if it is a qualifier of the ethical differences between you and the rest of the world.

Dr. Woods, come October 1 of this year you will have no choice but to have "waivers" or disclaimers" as you call it. Your country calls it verified informed consent and very soon it will be a requirement to document informed consent with a signature.

"If I were to knowingly expose a patient to a significant risk, I would be covering my butt. But I am not."

By using local anaesthesia you are exposing your patients to potential side effects. By piercing the skin up to 600 times a day to a depth of 3mm to 6mm you are exposing them to potential side effects. By transplanting follicular units from the donor zone to the recipient zone you are exposing your patients to potential side effects. Many side effects are beyond your control so I hope for your sake you are setting your ego aside and informing them of this.
