(PRWEB) December 1, 2004
In August 2004 the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons,(ISHRS), held itÂs annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia. Over 500 hair restoration specialists from around the world converged on Vancouver to share information, exchange views and learn about the latest techniques in surgical hair restoration.
At each annual conference physicians may bring patients to demonstrate results from a specific technique or style. In 2004 Hasson & Wong presented twenty-five patients for peer review to demonstrate the results from the Hasson & Wong Lateral Slit Technique. The results showed dense packing cases to hair transplant repair and everything in between. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
The September/October issue of the ISHRS Forum Newsletter touched on several of the Conference Highlights. Among the highlights mentioned was the Live Patient Viewing.
ÂMeeting Highlights - The indelible image I will take away from this meeting is that of the patients of Drs. Victor Hasson and Jerry Wong. These were demonstrated at the Live Patient Viewing on Friday afternoon.
To say that these results were Âmind-blowingÂ would be an understatement. Please picture a young man with over 5000 FUs harvested and planted in A SINGLE SESSION and growing with close to 100% perfection. Not only growing, but planted at up to 80 grafts per square centimeter and giving the appearance of completely normal hair direction and density with no ÂcrinkleÂ whatsoever and a donor scar of 1-2mm.
The rest of us will be a long time catching up with the skills of Jerry and Victor and their wonderful staff of assistants.Â
