The Bald Truth has just published an exclusive audio interview with ISHRS president, Dr. Jerry Cooley. Spencer Kobren interviews Dr. Cooley about the groundbreaking product, Acell MatriStrem. It seems this is the topic that is on everyone's mind lately. This may just be the product that changes the face of hair loss and hair restoration forever.
Jerry Cooley, MD: I started working with this wound healing product about a year and half ago, and initially got some promising results. It’s taken me definitely some time to understand it and understand what worked well and what didn’t, as well as just to see long term results. One of the things I’ve been doing in the last few months is just making a real concerted effort to bring people back in, which is not really that easy, but just to really look very closely at my results and I’ve just gotten that much more excited about it.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) focuses on the targeted removal of follicular unit grafts without the use of a scalpel or sutures. Considered to be a less invasive procedure than traditional strip harvesting, some people have touted FUE as the holy grail of surgical hair restoration since its introduction to North America in 1999. However, variants of the original procedure known as the Woods Technique, named after pioneer Australian hair transplant surgeon Dr. Ray Woods, have proven to be less successful than hoped. Many physicians and patients were disappointed with the results of early FUE procedures, which has given FUE the reputation of being a hit or miss alterative to the time tested and proven success of traditional of state of the art hair transplantation.
IAHRS Member Dr. Alan Feller is one of the early adapters of the FUE technique and one of the most vocal concerning its shortcomemmings. Feller has repeatedly warned physicians and prospective patients about the three detrimental forces that are unique to FUE hair transplantation. 1. Torsion 2. Traction 3. Compression
After years of clinical research Dr. Alan Feller believes he has solved these problems and has introduced a new FUE extracting tool to the hair restoration community.
