21st Annual Scientific Meeting to be held in San Francisco, Calif., Oct. 23-26, 2013


GENEVA, IL. – May 24, 2013.  The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) will host its 21st Annual Scientific Meeting, the largest research, education and networking event solely dedicated to advancing the art and science of hair restoration, October 23-26, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, in San Francisco, Calif. 

More than 600 physicians and surgical assistants from around the globe are expected to convene during this premier four-day Continuing Medical Educational meeting that offers attendees a unique opportunity to participate in interactive sessions, live patient viewing, and video surgery in high definition. Expert panels and guest speakers will share knowledge and the latest research during sessions that cover a range of hair-related topics.

The theme of this year’s meeting, “Bridging Technology and Art in Hair Restoration Surgery,” puts the spotlight on how state-of-the-art techniques can further enhance aesthetic outcomes.  In addition, presentations will address the future of hair restoration surgery, a highly refined surgery which permanently restores hair loss to the scalp and non-scalp areas of the body.

Each year, hot topics presented include the latest diagnostics and clinical applications for hair loss, factors that contribute to hair loss in women, refinements in non-scalp hair transplantation (including eyelash and eyebrow transplantation), the role of robotic technology in hair restoration surgery, and updates on new research in hair cloning and growth factors as future resources for new hair growth.
