“I have been a hair restoration surgeon for over 25 years and as a clinician I know how hard it is to work on professional papers and textbooks in the midst of keeping up with a busy practice. But Drs Sethi, Bansal, Kumar, and Sanke deserve high praise for their accomplishment in writing this guide. Who better than clinical practitioners to create a step by step guide that is indeed practical and useful to other doctors including beginners and experienced surgeons. My congratulations to the authors and my welcome to you fortunate readers.” Says Robert H True, Md, MPH Fellow and past Scientific Chair of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, Diplomate and Past President – American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, Editor Emeritus Hair Transplant Forum International Man sues firm as hair treatment goes awry
