Why do you suppose that is?
There are a whole lot of doctors in the world who still do PLUGS. There are a whole lot of doctors who DONT offer FUE. And there are "doctors" who aren't any better than butchers in a white robe. Why do you suppose these doctors still haven't caught up with the advancements in HT ? Maybe because the average doctor doesn't really care about the latest in HT technology. Don't think for a second that doctors beat themselves up at night worrying about their patients and why they didn't offer them the latest and best methods in HT. For most of these doctors, the way they look at it is "if it ain't broke don't fix it". And their money making machine isn't broke. Plus, do you really think these guys are going to pay Gho $50,000 to learn his method ? How many doctors that you know of have bothered with the robotic hair transplant machine or whatever the hell it's called? Just because a new technology or way to do something is available that doesn't mean every one is going to jump on it. How long did it take auto makers to adopt seat belts, ABS system, airbags....? Same thing with every industry.
Trust me, these doctors aren't concerned about what's best for the patient. They feel the methods they already offer are good enough and that's all that matters to them. Once a new technology catches up and becomes more common then these guys will start thinking about updating their services.
I'm sure the minute a doctor offers Gho's method -assuming it's as successful as he claims it is- in N. America more and more doctors will start offering it and FUTs and even FUEs will probably be things of the past. But for now they know the threat is still far.
The other thing, this isn't to attack Spencer but for someone who considers himself to be a consumer advocate and whose only goal is to help hair loss sufferers I think he SHOULD do more to investigate this whole HST (Gho's) thing. It's not like it's something that's impossible to do. If I had the money that Spencer has/makes -ok I don't know what he makes but I'm pretty damn sure he can afford to lose $20,000 on this- I'd pick a patient and send him over to Gho with another guy -and a video camera- just to document the process from day one and make the findings available to the millions (here and elsewhere) who have been dying to find the truth about Gho and put the whole thing to rest once and for all. IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO DO. IT'S PRETTY DAMN SIMPLE IF SOMEONE REALLY WANTS TO DO IT. All it takes is ONE philanthropist but I know humanity better.
