Blocking two arteries near the scalp regrows hair



That is freaky, but seems to have worked on most patients.


I find it really hard to believe that this doctor would be able to find 1300 men and women who would consent to having arteries to their scalp surgically ligated. Was it just to treat seborrheic dermatitis and hair loss, or was there some additional reason for the surgery? How could he get all those willing subjects? And he says 57 percent were “cured”? Cured to what extent?

Also, I realize that these are superficial arteries which only supply the skin, and not the brain and internal structures, but isn’t there a danger of tissue necrosis from doing this?
