Informational Paragraph: 

The two most important advances in hair transplantations are:

1.  Transplanting each individual natural hair grouping and
 
2.  Using a stereoscopic microscope to dissect out each individual natural hair grouping. These 2 techniques have revolutionized our ability to increase the survivability of the transplanted hair and has given us unsurpassed naturalness (now days, a hair transplant should be undetectable).

On the initial consult, you will talk only with Dr. McAndrews. He spends a considerable amount of time measuring your expectations with reality. He performs only one hair transplant a day with a very experienced staff, which gives our undivided attention to that patient and assures him that we are not rushing through the procedure. As a doctor, he is involved in every step of the hair transplant.

Dr. McAndrews is a Board-Certified Dermatologist, specializing in the medical and surgical treatments of hair loss. In addition to his private practice, he is an Associate Clinical Professor at USC School of Medicine, teaching residents the latest advances in the medical and surgical treatments of hair loss. Our prime responsibility is to educate our patients on the cause of hair loss and the numerous treatment alternatives available.
