Dear forum readers and fellow HT doctors,
This case illustrates what I have been trying to impress upon my peers.
Short term so called training programmes are resulting in spawning of clinics who go ahead to perform hair transplant in the misplaced belief that they have been trained.
The irony of this case is that -
The patient is a doctor himself
The surgeon who performed his previous HT is a member of various organizations including ISHRS.
A 79 went through the surgery thinking that a fellow doctor will never betray his trust.
He assumed that the doctor being a member of the organizations ensured that he will get a minimum standard of care.
That he did not get what he expected and was put in a situation worse than what he was in makes this case ironic.
The reason I call it interesting is because there are many people in situation similar to him who would find this helpful.
