It has been wrongly thought and propagated by some people that Direct hair transplantation (DHT) is impossible to perform and those claiming to perform DHT are actually not doing simultaneous extraction and implantation. However, that's not true.

This idea was first conceived, and published by Dr Arika Bansal and Dr Pradeep Sethi. 


The publication link is mentioned below:

They have been able to demonstrate this technique through live surgery workshops at various conferences. 


1. Chandigarh CUTICON 2013


2. Kolkata ACSICON 2015


3. ACSI live surgery workshop in hair transplant was conducted at Eugenix in April, 2019.


They have also demonstrated to this technique to various doctors coming to Eugenix for training, fellowship programs and workshops.

Infact, Eugenix became the first centre to be accredited for training fellows by the National Dermatology Society (IADVL).

Dr Pradeep is a professor of Hair transplant surgery at DY Patil University and involved actively in research and technology development related to the field of hair transplant. 

The unique idea of making the recipient sites beforehand and then doing extraction & implantation simultaneously has actually enabled them to reduce the out of body time drastically. Moreover, the unique implantation method by using implanters in pre made sites, we are able to implant in any position. This enables extraction and implantation to go on simultaneously in lateral positions (both right and left) and prone position.

Fantastic article link Nelson. I'll check the references to the conventions later when I have more time, but I read the article and it was very informative. References 5 and 13 are the largest "cons" of DHT, and seem to persist with the past and even improved methods:

It is undeniable that DHT is more time consuming and requires more focus than the alternative methods. (#5)

It is also therefore related that the increased focus and time consuming nature will be more prone to H errors. (#13). 

This isn't a critique of Eugenix, but the process. I know Eugenix works to get it right by using the two+ named docs (I mean this as "not amateur" but skilled docs) for a single surgery (at least that's what I understand, perhaps only one doc is used for surgeries of 2000+ grafts).

A key issue Bhatti brings up is the medium which suspends the hairs for FUE and FUT. He says that there is great success with it, and it may not be worth the added "effort" to use the DHT method (costs, additional docs, concentration required).

The article mentions Limmer, and his survival article from 1996. I bring this up because in the last 23 years, the HT medical community has come a long way. I can't pull the article up (maybe if I have more time and my computer, I can research it more), but perhaps his method of suspending the hairs is different and worse than the current methods Bhatti uses (and by extension, other docs use). I mean this as: perhaps graft survival as it is related to time-out-of-body isn't an issue that needs attention (perhaps compared to the other named issues of "physical handling, mechanical trauma, chances of desiccation, hypoxia, infection and grafts getting heated heated"  sorry for formatting I didn't want text to be big, and I wanted to *strike* hypoxia, but can't on mobile...)

With the claims of improvement from DHT over the traditional FUE and FUT methods, it would be beneficial for everyone involved to do a comprehensive controlled study of efficacy between those 3 methods. 

I think it's beneficial for patients everywhere if any 1(+) method is statistically superior to the other(s). 

Again, solid info as always Gabrielle! Thanks for the read!

Thanks for the additional input Nelson :) 

Eugenix is doing some good work and I always appreciate clinical researchers who think out of the box, takes an initiative and invent a new method.

It clearly demonstrates  that these doctors are driven by what they do. They have the passion to discover new ideas and methodologies. 

Dr Konior

hasson and wong

Dr Rahal

Dr Bhatti

Dr Sethi and Dr bansal 

everyone have something in common, they tweaked the process (major/minor changes) from different perspectives.

But DHI itself a new process, so KUDOS to Eugenix if they really invented DHI.

I am not going to go into a debate is DHI is great, good, average or not impressive. 

what  I am saying is If Eugenix is the first clinic in the world to create DHT with choi pen technique, then they deserve recognition just for trying even. Do you know for a fact that DHT is invented by Dr Sethi and Dr bansal...... is there a global forum/certificate... not trying to question the validity of this great initiative but i am curious by nature :) i tried to research myself for weeks on DHI/DHT before i settled with traditional Dr Bhatti tweaked FUE with PRP + a stem cell solution 

 

I am  still not sure about the exact difference between DHI and DHT lol ......
