I'd get a consult with them both and maybe some others to compare what they all say. Usually advisable to screen at least 5 doctors with consults and compare notes.


Hair loss patient and transplant veteran. Once a Norwood 3A.

Received 2,700 grafts with coalition doctor on 8/13/2010

Received 2,380 grafts with Dr. Steven Gabel on 9/30/2011

Received 1,820 grafts with Dr. Steven Gabel on 7/28/2016

I am doing some research about both doctors as well. They both are reputable doctors.It seems to me Dr Ron Shapiro is more conservative when it comes to density and hairline.

As the medical consultant for 27yrs with Shapiro Medical, and knowing the industry very well.

 

I would say we are very analytical and not conservative unless we have to. We do what's appropriate; when we need to be a bit conservative we'll be conservative, when we can be aggressive we'll be aggressive. It is a matter of the patient we want our patients happy now and down the road.

 

If donor was unlimited and we knew where the progression would end, why not slap as much work down as we can and lowering hairline to whatever, but that's not the case.

 

By being too aggressive on the wrong patient; we could give him something that could look peculiar down the road, use up too many grafts for other areas later and increase over all surface area to the pattern....all things that could hurt a patient and back him into a corner.

 

We really haven't posted here much for a year, while being on here for a good 20yrs as a world leader and nothing has changed, if not gotten better at our group.

 

We do 20-25 surgeries a month, with a approx. a third being sessions of 3000-4000plus. Unless one came to our office very few are seeing what we have been doing recently.

 

Our group has grown and are very excited about the future!

To be clear.

 

My post above has nothing to do with Dr Cooley skill, we know him well, and again knowing the industry well, he's a doctor that does it right.

 

We would be happy for you to go to Dr Cooley, because we know you will be well cared for.

Zup, do you think you would be able to post some recent FUE results? Would love to see some of the cases you have been doing recently that you mentioned. Thanks!
