Dr. Robert Leonard Selected to Present at the 6th Annual Congress of the Brazilian Association for Hair Restoration Surgery
New England’s Foremost Authority on Hair Restoration to Discuss Non-surgical Hair Loss Treatments
Newton, MA (August 18, 2016) – Dr. Robert Leonard, chief surgeon and founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, has been selected to present at the 6th Annual Congress of the Brazilian Association for Hair Restoration Surgery in Curitiba, Brazil, August 24 – 27, 2016. Dr. Leonard, an internationally-recognized hair restoration expert, will provide fellow doctors with his insight on the most effective non-surgical hair loss treatments.
“I am honored to provide fellow doctors with my 30-years of experience in the field of hair restoration techniques,” said Dr. Robert Leonard. “When people think of hair restoration, they often think of surgical methods. However, there are several excellent non-surgical treatments available that can often be just as effective as surgery, depending on a patient’s individual hair loss.”
The 6th Annual Congress of the Brazilian Association for Hair Restoration Surgery is sponsored by the Brazilian Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABCRC) and is a non-profit organization whose members are doctors, dermatologists and plastic surgeons who specialize in hair restoration. Founded in 2003, the Association’s primary mission is continued education in the art and science of Hair Restoration and exchanging ideas, knowledge and experience in this field.
Dr. Leonard will present three current medically sound and scientifically-proven treatments: Propecia, Rogaine® Foam and the Capillus272™ PRO laser device. The Capillus272 laser cap is 90% effective in stopping the progression of hair loss and 60% effective in re-growing hair. This device is applicable for men and women and addresses the entire top of a patient’s head – not just specific areas.
Dr. Leonard is New England’s foremost authority on hair restoration. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and a Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. He has served on a number of boards, including the State of Rhode Island Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline, and he has held leadership positions in several societies, including Founding Secretary and President of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), Chairman of the
ISHRS’s Bylaws and Ethics Committee, Chairman of the ISHRS’s Media Committee, Trustee of the University of New England, and Founding Trustee of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery.
Dr. Leonard maintains offices in Cranston, Rhode Island; Boston, Worcester, Hyannis, Braintree, Newton Center, Massachusetts; and Salem, New Hampshire.
