Hello all, I returned a few weeks ago from a teaching conference in Bangkok, Thailand that was sponsored by the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine where I was teaching physicians from all over the Far East, Australia, and the UK, the newest techniques in Hair and Eyebrow Transplantation. This was an incredibly gratifying experience for me, to be able to impart my knowledge of hair and eyebrow transplantation to other physicians. The hospital where the course took place was at Bangkok International 9 Hospital and it more like a Five Star Hotel than a typical US hospital. The nursing staff and physicians were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and it was an absolute pleasure to work with them. The nurses there all wear the classic nurse uniform that nurses used to wear here in the 50’s (I think we should go back to that era in a fashion sense). Their equipment was all state of the art. They do a large amount of Cosmetic Surgery there so they were very well versed in many of the latest techniques. I have enclosed some pictures I took of the staff and participants in the lecture. I may be doing another in Kuala Lampour Malaysia in October so I will keep you posted or you can also check the website at http://www.aaamed.org.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
