Alan J. Bauman, M.D. was the first physician to demonstrate NeoGraft, the minimally-invasive hair transplant device, at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery's (ISHRS) Annual Live Surgery Workshop in Orlando this month. One of the most experienced NeoGraft surgeons worldwide, Dr. Bauman lectured about the device as well as demonstrated its use on a live patient for the over 100 physicians, assistants and others who were in attendance.
The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) is a non-profit medical association of over 750 physicians specializing in alopecia and hair loss. They provide continuing education to physicians specializing in hair transplant and restoration surgery and gives the public the latest information on medical hair restoration and non-surgical treatment for hair loss.

"NeoGraft has been an incredible breakthrough that benefits both hair transplant patients and physicians," said Dr. Bauman, who is certified by the American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and one of the first U.S. doctors to use the device. "The ISHRS workshop was a great opportunity to educate more hair transplant doctors about this important new tool in the battle against baldness. NeoGraft delivers what savvy hair loss patients are demanding-a less invasive hair transplant that heals quickly and comfortably, and leaves no linear scar."
Until now, FUE-type hair transplants performed manually were labor-intensive and time consuming, which meant that patients had to undergo multiple surgeries to get the desired effect. "Now that a more efficient automated device is available, experienced FUE doctors should be able to double the number of grafts transplanted per session or shorten procedure times, saving some patients both time and money," said Dr. Bauman.
