Over a period of time small bits of information begin to make clear that the placement of grafts by technicians has a large impact on the outcome of surgery.
In a recent post, one of Dr. Harris’s technicians (Hairtech) discussed that he had adapted the placement of grafts on a tight scalp using a technique that he had learned at another clinic and that under the circumstances the standard technique could risk crushing grafts. This may have helped the patient but the technique related to the technician not the clinic.
There are other cases where differences in the growth of grafts in different areas of the scalp have been put down to the areas serviced by different technicians and these comments have come from the clinic or technicians themselves.
This is a factor that cannot be controlled by the buyer (patient) and the patient has no knowledge about technician turnover etc etc.
Dr. Woods does the work himself so that removes a potentially important uncertainty and he can feel more responsible and confident in his results.
I wish he was cheaper and undertook an anger management course when it comes to defending his excellent technique (I’m a bit afraid of him so I have to counterbalance any negatives just in case)
Anyway, food for thought???
