So I -- a lot of -- I have a lot of male friends -- have concerns.
And in the as they get older what -- what -- they X-Men get concerned about the get concerned about losing their hair.
And the biggest question that they always have this gentleman that you see is an answer -- is.
So if somebody is worried about it let's say their grandfather on their mom's side -- -- father.
Is losing their hair is is it is it in the -- you in the terminals maternal bond learn how -- all that work explain that real fast.
And it actually joining us right now and his doctor James -- I guess I should introduce you -- -- sciences center.
Hi thanks for having me.
Actually hair loss comes from both sides of the family and so it means something if your grandmother has it -- is made grandfather has it.
But -- come from both sides of the family.
Okay so that is the answer to that question now let's move on how big of an issue is -- -- -- -- I mean I think I was watching one of those.
Those -- reality shows and it was the -- -- -- and and the brother who never gets any attention on the -- The big Smith show was all about Hannity was worried about his hair loss and so he's starting -- -- got some.
Little vibrating breasts being news -- to hold you know for thirty seconds you know move an instant on your assistant seemed kind of a little a little ridiculous -- like it -- something that wouldn't work.
But this is a -- of the big concern for nice.
It's a it's a huge concern at almost 50% of men are affected by male pattern loss it's a genetic condition.
So there's a lot of hype and myths about what causes hair loss but most of the time it's genetics.
So you have a dip they're different technologies out there that can be used and utilize what are you working on these days and what seems to be successful.
Well in terms of surgical hair restoration which is really the only permanent.
Solution to her loss.
We've developed some techniques that allow us to remove the -- from the scalp one at a time and one of them that I've been involved with is called the -- robotics system.
It is state of the art it brings hair restoration into the 21 century with technology that's pretty amazing.
As advanced vision systems.
Algorithms that control -- -- the robot and allow most importantly the surgeons to provide a great result of patients.
I think a lot of guys out there are watching this guy -- this will be interesting it.
We you know we we like the idea road game but but surgeries starts to freak people out explain what happens you go you know in the anesthesiologist I guess you go -- He lay down what happens.
Well let me.
Well let me.
Give me some details about this most of the time there is no anesthesiologist.
Involved -- typically use a little bit of sedation so -- in little of the twilight sleep.
And then we use local anesthesia to make sure that the patient doesn't feel -- pain or discomfort.
Right we're seeing a sell it for you right now on the before and after an in this it is pretty spectacular -- actually know somebody who has.
I guess you -- you know I guess accrued current term his hair plugs I mean they look like little little sprouts -- out of his head hates can't hit.
It's this looks totally different though.
We don't use plugs any more hair grows on your hair naturally in little groups of one to four hairs that's what we're transplanting their call -- -- units.
And that's how we can ensure that people get -- absolutely natural result these days how expensive SS.
It can very -- different parts of the country but it would somewhere in the range of seven to 101000 dollars for procedure.
Whose fate is the candidate that your that your most admit that you're seeing most.
They're probably patients in their mid thirties to mid fifties.
They've had hair loss for -- while they've looked at the different treatment options and who decided to do something definitive.
Now a lot of these patients have been on medication which is very effective in preventing -- loss.
But the majority don't grow a lot of -- with medication such as Propecia and -- Soon.
Okay I'm sorry that was my producers talking to me is you're as you're trying to finish your thought there on the so the very quickly that we know we're talking about men and women also experience -- are they candidates as well -- They certainly are candidates.
Women experience hair loss and little different way so in in addition to losing her on the top of their head.
They may also have some issues with -- loss in the back of their head where is where we typically get the graphs from.
So they have to undergo -- very careful medical evaluation and physical valuation to make sure they're candidates for surgery.
But typically the results can be very good and help them out quite significantly.
Okay let me just make -- that I have the website correct is it www.
Recent restoration robotics dot com.
That's the website for the producers of the robotics mechanism that we've talked about other resources of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery.
I SH RS dot org.
-- arcade fire and we'll have all this information on our web -- of course that people can.
Can get a little bit more detail about this doctor James Harris thanks for joining us today and I'm beautiful Denver Colorado we appreciate it.
Thank you for having me have a good -- are you TO -- so our.
