Just because there are two possible outcomes doesn't make it a "50/50 gamble"; the odds of achieving those outcomes are not equal.

RepliCels transplantation method is, right now IMO, the only way to "undo" and "prevent" future loss by virtue of changing out the Dermal Sheath Cup for one that can withstand the DHT squeeze.
Many people including myself do actually view hair loss as a disease. Even Spencer himself refers to it as a disease. Hair loss at a relatively young age very often drastically affects a person's mental state, which leads to depression and other mental disorders perpetuated by hair loss. Although hair loss is not a physical ailment, the psychological effects that it has on sufferers is what makes it a disease in my opinion. Although some other "diseases" can hurt a person physically, hair loss oftentimes hurts a person on a mental and emotional level. And very often, physical and emotional pain can be harder to bear than physical pain.
I think that many people would jump at the chance to use stem cells to regrow their hair, especially the many people who do view hair loss as a disease (like the founder of this website). With regards to other places attempting to use stem cells to regrow hair, there are a few. Except these places use stem cells from adipose (fat) tissue, which do not have the capacity to transform in the way that bone marrow stem cells do. Also, these places are run by "naturopaths" as opposed regular doctors, so that kind of makes me suspicious of their credentials and their practices.

Hair loss in most instances = fear. Fear is the mind killer.
