Live Surgery Workshop, an educational event specifically for hair restoration physicians, which successfully demonstrated NeoGraft's? potential to enhance minimally-invasive hair transplant procedures.

Hosted by board-certified hair restoration physician, Alan J. Bauman, M.D., the June 26th event was attended by more than 25 physicians and health care professionals from across the country.

"NeoGraft is an exciting device because it dramatically enhances the speed, efficiency and accuracy of follicular-unit extraction - the most minimally-invasive type of hair transplant available today," Dr. Bauman said. "My team and I are extremely proud to be chosen by NeoGraft Resource Group to be able to host the first live surgery workshop in the world to showcase this device."

The one-day event included scientific lectures on the history of minimally-invasive hair transplants, FDA-approved medical treatments for hair loss, hairline design and artistry in hair transplantation, as well as a 'live' hair transplant procedure performed with the NeoGraft? device. Through video-conferencing and direct observation, attendee physicians were able to observe as well as ask questions to the patient and surgical team while the procedure was underway.

About NeoGraft: NeoGraft is the product of more than 10 years of European research and development. Updated and ergonomically-enhanced for today's microsurgical, minimally-invasive hair transplant procedures, the mechanical NeoGraft extraction device works as an extension of the surgeon's hand to assist in the individual extraction of hair follicles, a process called follicular-unit extraction or "FUE," which leaves no linear scar.

The Neograft device also includes two 'no-touch' implantation hand-pieces which allow the gentle implantation of the harvested grafts into the skin using positive and negative air pressure.

About 'FUE' Hair Transplants: Performed by only a handful of surgeons worldwide, but gaining in popularity with both men and women, FUE no-scalpel/no-stitch hair transplant procedures are known to heal more quickly, more comfortably and with less post-op activity restrictions compared to more traditional, more invasive hair transplant procedures. With no 'tell-tale' linear scar, FUE procedures allow for more flexible hairstyling options after healing.

About Dr. Alan Bauman/Bauman Medical Group: Dr. Bauman has performed, lectured on, and demonstrated FUE procedures at Live Surgery Workshops sponsored by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery dating back to 2002 and designed the first commercially-available, manual device for FUE (the Bauman-MINDEX) around that same time.
