New England’s Foremost Authority on Hair Restoration to Address the Field’s World Leaders and Innovators on Treating Female Hair Loss
CRANSTON, Rhode Island – Dr. Robert Leonard, chief surgeon and founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, will discuss “Treating the Female Hair Loss Patient” at the 13th Annual Congress and Live Surgery Workshop of the European Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in Vienna, Austria at the Hotel Imperial on Friday, May 28, 2010.
Among his remarks, Dr. Leonard will present the following:
• Female pattern hair loss is common and often emotionally devastating for women;
• 30 million women, one in four, suffer from female pattern hair loss;
• The major cause of female pattern hair loss is genetics – not stress, not over-treating and not shampooing too often;
• Hair loss in women is often misdiagnosed or worse, ignored, and even brushed off by physicians (including dermatologists) as “normal,” “something that comes with age,” “nothing to worry about,” “something that you should ignore,” “you should find something else in your life to occupy your mind so you won’t think about your hair,” which is shameful.
Dr. Leonard is medically educated, trained and licensed to perform hair transplant procedures for men and women. He is the Hair Loss Expert for Johnson & Johnson, makers of Rogaine®, and board certified and licensed to practice medicine in several states including Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida.
Dr. Leonard received his Bachelor of Arts at the University of New Hampshire and earned his medical degree at the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine. He maintains offices in Cranston, Rhode Island; Boston, Worcester, Hyannis, Braintree, Newton Centre, Massachusetts; and Nashua, New Hampshire.
