Dr. Hitzig


#1

So it looks like he pulled the same trick yet again.

According to this link, the guy has been sued for malpractice, disfigurement and false advertisement more than 10 years ago.

Yeah … What’s really interesting about this is that Spencer Kobren just did a fawning interview with his Acell partner, Dr. Cooley, in which Kobren can’t stop gushing about how amazing their (alleged) Acell results are.

Kobren started out around 1996 touting the possibilities of HM, but after that lawsuit by Hitzig, he drastically reduced the scope of his operations. They wouldn’t even archive the Bald Truth shows on their website anymore for fear of lawsuits. Now he’s raving about a procedure being promoted jointly by Hitzig and Cooley. You can’t get any stranger than that, folks.

Wow, its more than 150 patients who sued Hitzig!!

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/lawsuits.html

Over 150 patients have filed lawsuits against Drs. Gary Hitzig and John Schwinning (doing business as Long Island Medical Associates). Some of those cases were dismissed, but other cases are still pending. (Dr. Hitzig and Dr. Schwinning now have their own separate practices, and still perform hair transplants while these lawsuits are pending.)
<<<<

And yes, it is very strange that Hitzig sued Spencer Kobren in the past, to silence him, and now Kobren is promoting Cooley and Hitzig’s “miracles”.

All this Acell drama is getting more and more obscure.

Anyone has more information about Hitzig? In the past, I read a few times about Hitzig’s problematic past, but I don’t remember the details.

Could you be a little clearer?

Are you saying that Cooley is Spencer’s partner or that Cooley is Hitzig’s partner?

Well, the article is ancient history

What I can say for sure is that Hitzig has now retired. He was most recently working for Prasad cosmetic surgery in New York City promoting their hair rescue package. I was speaking with one of Dr Prasads staff earlier this year and and asked him why all the videos and references to Hitzig had been removed from their website. He said that Hitzig had now retired and quit working more than a year ago.
