Best in the industry? I guess it's true what they say about football players.....

It's rumored that Brady went there first.

I went to see Dr Leonard back in 2006 to start my laser treatment when I lived in New England.

Yes, Brady has seen Dr Leonard, I wouldn't be surprised if he's on Propecia, or had some work done. Regardless his hair is ****ing perfect, not to mention his skills. Wish I had his hair.

Wish I had his hair? sure. His skills?.... Rogers, Brees, E manning (can't ignore beating him heads up 2x in the big game), P manning. I'd take these guys over Mr 2 step dump pass any day. But ya, he's got the hair. Although not sure he had any work done. He has always had that going.
As for Leonard, he pushes pretty hard on the local radio sports stations in Boston. FAR better choices down 95 in NY. He always seems to be a decade behind. I first saw him in my early 20's and he said I'm going to remove 6mm plugs from the back of your head, cut them in quaters and place them in your temple areas....... This was when micro and mini grafts where in full motion. Scary. I think about that all the time and what that would look like today.

Definitely better choices down 95 in NYC! ;)

FUE perhaps?

"Welker was immediately able to resume his regular activities, including training for the football season and even wearing a helmet."

No doubt.... Leonard uses and promotes the Neograft.

IMHO, whether having FUE or strip, the post-op care is still critical to not rub the newly implanted grafts or to immediately engae in stenuous activity like football practice which potentially could have dislodged or popped out a few grafts.

I highly doubt that he went out to football practice immediately the day after.

Anybody have updates on how Welker is progressing with his transplant?

Saw him and Brady sitting side by side on the sidelines, both of them were wearing identical skull caps. Couldn't see what's going on. He's got to be about 5-6 months in so should be showing some growth.

As a hair transplant physician, patient and former football player, I'm curious as to. "What they say about football players"? :)
