I caught the end of the Bald Truth radio show tonight, so I'm not sure if this news is from today or a week ago, but Spencer said he is going to interview Dr. Gho sometime this week.
I think this is a good opportunity to make a list of questions we have for Dr. Gho and maybe if Spencer catches this thread, he can include some of the more pressing/interesting questions he finds here, although I'm sure he has a good idea what interests us. I'll start it off:
1. Do you have any plans to increase the number of grafts per session? For many patients at an advanced stage of hair loss, it will require many sessions of 1.2-1.4k grafts to reach a desired level of coverage. Although your procedure is known to have a minimal down-time, there is still a need to travel, take time off, shave your head, and wait for the results to reach a full level.
2. At the moment, there is a very long waiting list at your clinics. Do you plan to open more clinics? Do you have any plans to share your technique with other surgeons so that HST is a more mainstream option?
3. What are the limitations of HST? Can a patient with a high level of baldness (NW5-7) receive adequate coverage given unlimited time/money? How many times can the same follicle be harvested and do these hairs maintain the same characteristics (diameter, texture) as before? Who would you consider a poor candidate for HST?
4. As someone directly involved in hair science research, do you have any additional research or new findings you are willing to share with the hairloss community?
Maybe most importantly, I hope Spencer and Dr. Gho discuss a way to get independent verification of his HST method that would satisfy all sides.
Thanks to Spencer for listening to our comments and setting this up. Looking forward to the interview
