Port Orange, FL (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
Florida Physician Dr. Marco Barusco has launched a pro-bono hair restoration program. His program is designed to help the victims of traumatic injury, radiotherapy, or skin diseases who have suffered patches of hair loss or experienced scarring that can be hidden by hair but who are unable to afford the cost of hair transplantation surgery.
Board-certified hair restoration surgeon Dr. Marco Barusco, founder of Tempus Hair Restoration, P.A, was recently featured on the segment “Making a Difference” in Orlando, Florida TV station WKMG Local 6. The segment revealed that Dr. Barusco does more than solve genetic hair loss: He aims to help patients whose lives would be most dramatically changed by the hair transplantation procedure they can’t afford.
According to Dr. Barusco, some car accident victims, cancer patients, and burn victims can benefit from surgical hair transplantation, either to fill in patches of baldness or cover unsigthly scars on their scalp or face.
In the WKMG “Making a Difference” segment, Dr. Barusco briefly summarizes the hair transplantation process: Hairs removed from the back of the head – an area in which hair is not genetically programmed to fall out – are surgically implanted in the area where they are needed and continue growing there “forever” – a process that radically transforms people’s lives.
The WKMG segment informs viewers that “Dr. Barusco’s surgery typically takes a full day and 6-9 months to see final results.” The length of the intricate surgery the doctor has performed for thousands of patients at no charge (or at reduced cost) is a testament to his dedication to giving his patients a “better lifestyle” – one that comes from “having hair where they (didn’t) before.” “For him,” the WKMG reporter tells viewers, “helping a trauma patient who can’t afford the procedure is priceless.”
Dr. Barusco’s interview reveals the doctor's human side, demonstrating that he never fails to be personally moved by the reactions of his patients, who often return to express their joy at what he’s done for them – meetings which, he admits, often end with both of them in tears. Simply recalling these meetings during the interview, in fact, visibly moves him.
Dr. Marco Barusco is a board-certified hair restoration surgeon with 13 years’ experience helping patients by providing “the latest modalities in medical and surgical hair restoration.” A Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery since 2001, Dr. Barusco also serves as a current examiner for the Board. His other related work includes research, medical writing, mentoring, teaching, lecturing, and providing live surgery demonstrations.
Because patients must qualify for Dr. Barusco’s free procedure, WKMG has set up a link at ClickOrlando.com where potential candidates can “learn more about the program and get an application.”
