Error


#1

As Parable has correctly pointed out in response to my post in the HM forum regarding Bobman, I am in error. I accidently confused Bobman with another H&W patient, Nic Nitro. The point of my post was not about the individual (in this case, Bobman), but the number of grafts received/available as stated by the surgeon.

The following is my recent post on another forum regarding Nic Nitro:

“Yes, these results are fantastic. If my math is correct, Nic has had 10,407 grafts to date. Earlier in this thread, Nic stated that Dr. Hasson told Nic that he has 3500 to 5000 grafts left to be harvested for further crown work. That would be 13,907 to 15,407 total grafts harvested. There was a raging debate/ourtcry on this site when another doctor (Armani) said that a similar number of grafts could possibly be harvested.”

I apologize to Bobman and thank Parable for pointing out my error.

Respect bud!
You handled that with class and I see the point you were trying to make.
The one thing I must state to counteract this, is H&W amongst other reputable surgeons
never make such claims that the ‘average’ patient has over >15000 donor grafts available!
Nic Nitro isn’t an average case but rather the exception (high density, scalp elasticity) and newbies should be thoroughly aware of that.

I apologize, as well, for my harsh comments to you in the previous post.
Having said that, I still believe Armani’s playing with fire.

Well, I have had much respect for Parable and Rev over the years and appreciate their posts and the valuable information that they have provided. Good luck to both in 2009!
