Italian Greetings from the ISHRS Hair Restoration Workshop
Roma is called the caput mundi and the mother of civilization because new ideas sprouting from this beautiful city spread throughout the world and, yet, always somehow return to Roma. Roma IDI Day One
Ciao a tutti! I am writing this blog from beautiful Rome, Italy, where I am co-chairing the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s “Made in Italy: Hair restoration live video surgery workshop.” The workshop is hosted by Istituto Dermopatico dell’Immacolata and features live surgeries via video and for small groups.
As program Co-Director I am working in partnership with Dr. Ciro DeSio to provide a world class, top notch educational program for doctors and surgical assistants who may be new to this field as well as those who are very experienced in hair restoration surgery. It truly is an exciting time to be co-chairing the program, as this ISHRS Live Video Surgery Workshop is the first of its kind in Europe.
I’ll be performing a procedure on a young man to teach new surgeons just starting out in the field. As well as performing live surgical procedures, I will demonstrate actual hair loss consultations, teach about medical and laser therapy hair loss treatment options for men and women, and participate in panel discussions. I’ll also have the exciting opportunity to participate in an international press conference with more than 50 journalists from at least 4 continents to talk about the latest treatments in hair restoration surgery. Since the beginning of the workshop, I’ve been quoted discussing surgical treatment of women and the use of laser therapy in hair loss treatment.
Coupled with the program’s social agenda of cultural, historical and especially delicious culinary events, I believe this workshop will prove that hospitality Italian-style is second to none!
