Dr. Cotterill will only perform one hair transplant procedure at a time, without having concurrent rooms running. Dr. Cotterill will perform all surgical portions of the procedure himself; from designing the hairline, removal of all donor grafts, to personally creating each individual recipient graft site.
Please read the Important Consumer Alert
put out by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery about the use of non-physicians performing some or part of the surgery and the improper use of physicians delegating crucial parts of the hair transplant surgery to non-physician personnel.
Dr. Cotterill specializes in follicular unit grafting and can transplant up to 8000 – 10,000 hairs, in varying sizes of follicular unit grafts. Two Registered nurses and 2 hair transplant technicians will dissect the donor strip using stereoscopic
microscopes and assist at planting the grafts once Dr. Cotterill has personally made all the sites. Follicular unit grafts are commonly removed as a single strip from the back of the scalp and the wound is then sutured closed using the latest technique (Trichophytic Closure
) or, when appropriate, as individual follicular unit grafts, removed one at a time, called Follicular Unit Extraction, (FUE).
