    Default Hair transplant in patient with Cochlear Implant, how we modify the technique

    So this is one we don't see everyday. This former bodybuilder lost his hearing in his 40s and got a cochlear implant. His dad had a hair transplant "back in the day" so he came in for a consultation. Frankly, I'd never seen a patient with a C I get an HT. As a former ENT doctor though, I knew we can't screw this thing up.



    So in the video I discuss what we did differently, how the implant shortens the strip and thus the available hair, and show him during the case and over the first week. He's local, so I'm optimistic that we'll get followup and a second case next year.
