Brief notes on consultations


#1

I have had several consultations over the last year.

measurement of donor density has varied enormously and not one count was consistent with another.

All Representatives that I met were genuine (not the old salesman type) and honest regarding what they thought cold be achieved. 10/10 to all I have met or talked to.

Having said this only one consultation included the complete Q and A together with the count performed by the surgeon himself and that was BHR Basinger. The importance of this cannot be under estimated. I realise that I cold not even consider an HT without all technical details and thorough examination by the surgeon himself. As an example Armani did meet me bt on the back of examination by representatives. He was not as clear about tools and other aspects of his technique as I needed. That may be fine for some but I need the absolute picture. closure technique degree of undermining staples / running / double layer and why. recipient angulation / depth / instrument type size. Staff longevity etc etc. Even the best representatives are often a little unfamiliar with some of these issues but they are important in my view.

Of cause the other way of looking at it is that the results are what counts and that is all we need to know about. That’s fine but it’s not for me.

Good to see you are doing your due diligience.
Dont quote me, but maybe alot of Drs don’t want to go into too much detail with some things, as it took them years and years to get a competitive edge, and want to minimise the risk of others copying/stealing technology.
I did my own research. Not as thorough as yourself. Im more of a visual person, so based most of my decision on whos results I felt were the best.
If you end up getting a transplant, it will be good to hear from you who you ended up going with, and seeing your results.
Good Luck with it all.
