Setting New Standards For FUE
Ultra refined grafting – a term coined by HTN’s Pat Henessey when I introduced the variable of multi- hair FUS orientation importance in the HT process.
I know of no other clinic that has contributed more to the field of strip surgery.
With all of these innovations, I am sure that you can imagine that we are forward thinking individuals, always searching for a better process. If you look at the innovations we have pioneered, you may note one important commonality. They all relate in some way to the implantation process of the hair transplant procedure. Not to the strip harvesting procedure! If we were able to harvest FUS by the FUE process, all of our innovations could be equally applied.
I admit that we have been slow to jump aboard the FUE bandwagon. The last thing that we wanted to do was provide FUE surgery results that were ‘mediocre’ and reduce our status to just another clinic ‘ now offering FUE ‘.
We have spent the last four years researching the FUE process. We have looked at manual punches, multiple varieties of power punches and purchased an Artas robot. Each technique has been assessed from multiple angles and in great depth.
Approximately six months ago we made an assessment and came to a conclusion. The best technique -in our opinion – and by a large margin, was the manual punch.
We are now performing approximately one FUE procedure daily. The extraction is performed by our team of RN’s, who have been working with us for many years. They have developed a level of fine motor skills way beyond the level of most, or perhaps any, physician, which adapts them perfectly to this skill. The manual punch does require more time to perform with a maximum of 1500-2000 extractions daily
