Losing one’s hair can undoubtedly be one of the most stressful experiences that a person can go through. But it is a universal phenomenon. And because there are many forms of treatment that are being marketed to sufferers, it is important to use discretion about what to accept as truth versus myth.
When it comes to hair loss, an informed approach is the best approach. Although there are many articles available on the internet, sometimes it can be most helpful and valuable to learn about specific and relevant situations, cases and scenarios.
This Q&A site was created by leading hair restoration expert, Dr. Sanusi Umar who has personally suffered from hair loss and the travails of disappointing treatments and surgery and now devotes his life to helping even the most challenging patient cases become actual success stories.
By understanding the frustration of not knowing if information is legitimate or misleading, he developed this online resource for real people to have their questions answered by expert doctors around the world, including Dr. Lupanzula Emorane, Dr. Rattapan Thuangtong and Dr. Shadi Zari.
They will not only help Individuals compare and contrast treatments that are inquired about, but also understand the physiological picture which underlies hair loss issues.
The collective pool of knowledge will continuously expand as we welcome new doctors to ensure a broad scope of information and insight that visitors can benefit from.
The hair loss journey is fraught with emotional and psychological consequences of having less confidence as well as being disappointed by treatments that end up being a waste of time and money.
While suffering in silence can make matters worse, sharing information and experiences with others can be healing as participants realize that they are not alone and become more empowered to make the best choices for themselves.
Besides this site, Dr. Umar also has also created podcast show called Baldcast which we hope will be a further source of education, encouragement and support
Dr. Sanusi Umar is a pioneer in hair transplant surgery and is widely published and recognized in his field. Dr. Umar is certified by the American Board of Dermatology and the founder of DermHair Clinic in Los Angeles, CA.
