Hello all, I have just returned from the International Society Of Hair Transplant Surgeons annual meeting in Boston Mass. As usual it was an amazing experience. It is always so great to gather with your peers and discuss all the different approaches to the conditions we treat. It inspires a constant re-evaulation of procedures and protocols that should always be evolving as technology and studies show new and improved ways of practicing our craft. It also serves as an excellent review of the fundamentals of the field of Hair Restoration, that though we may know and practice them regularly, they are always good to revisit. I also had the opportunity to catch up with many old friends, and students from my previous teaching lectures. I got to meet many great new people as well that I know I will keep in touch with for years to come. I feel so lucky to be able to work in a field that provides so much satisfaction to the people it touches, and yet provides so much satisfaction to me as their physician as well. Here is a photo from the entrance to the World Trade Center at the Seaport in Boston where the conference took place.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
