    You mean "grafts".
    Are the fees different ? More, less than by hand ? I'd like to hear about the results.

    Fitnessman you wrote “ I think it’s cheaper”

    How long have you been researching ht in particular fue? Do you know the difference between the hand punch, mechanized devices and robotic systems? Are you familiar with the different size punches used for this procedure? Just trying to get an idea of how much research you have performed.

    Good luck with the outcome and looking forward to see your pictures.

    I'm a bit curious about the cost myself. I believe the Cost of these systems are about Half a Mil. On top of that, there is a royalty charge of $1 a graft. I can't see it being that much of a savings. Although, it depends who your comparing costs to.

    keep us posted!

    DAY 1 : Dr. Harris Robot TP

    I have been researching HT since last year.

    dr. harris is on this site as a IAHRS Surgeon and the ONLY one in CO.
    Denver is a 40 min drive.

    Dr. Harris and his staff were nice and very friendly when I first walked in the door for a test procedure back in Jan.

    Anywho...back to today. 7am start to about 7pm.
    total of a little less than 2k grafts.

    The procedure was fine...by the time I left I was full of energy and ready to go dancing. My head is numb, there is ZERO pain. i was given an IV and a vicadin later in the evening but I wasnt really in any pain..the only pain i had was when they were numbing me up. that $hit sucks!

    i am attaching 2pics of the frontal areas. the donor sites have a bandage on them that im not suppose to remove until tomorrow.
