Techniques to deal with difficult cases

Cranston, RI – (September 28, 2016) – Dr. Robert Leonard, chief surgeon and founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, and Dr. Matthew Lopresti have been selected to present at the 24th World Congress of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in Las Vegas, September 28 – October 1, 2016. Drs. Lopresti and Leonard will present on a difficult surgical case they’ve encountered in order to teach colleagues how to approach and handle similar cases and situations.

“The annual ISHRS is an incredible opportunity for surgeons from around the world to come together and share best practices,” said Dr. Robert Leonard. “We are proud to present this year and share our experiences with our colleagues,” said Dr. Matthew Lopresti.

Leonard and Lopresti will discuss a patient who developed a highly unusual infection with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), bacteria that is resistant to many antibiotics. They will share their experience and treatment of this patient.

Dr. Leonard will also lead a roundtable discussion about a scientifically proven treatment of low level laser therapy which included the Capillus272 PRO laser device. The Capillus272 PRO laser cap is 90% effective in stabilizing 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.
