In addition to excellent surgical skill artistic skill is of utmost importance in achieving the results patients desire. He has found in his experience that majority of the patients he sees with significant hair loss would prefer to have as few procedures as possible. To accommodate this Dr. Goertz performs large sessions of up to 3000 follicular units of approximately 6900 hairs in a single procedure. He and his staff strive to make these large sessions as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The majority of the procedures they perform are these larger cases.

He creates hairlines that are variegated (irregular) to try and achieve results for his patients that mimic nature. In the frontal hairline he uses only single hair follicular units to create softness and naturalness. Angle and depth of graft placement are also important in his opinion for natural results.
Dr. Goertz also encourages all his patients to utilize medical and natural therapies in addition to or in place of hair transplantation. He counsels all his patients on diet not only for their “hair health” but also “their general well being and longevity”. He encourages patients to see their personal physicians regularly for their general health and maintaian a healthy lifestyle. Many patients benefit from both Finasteride (Propecia) and Minoxidil (Rogaine) and may even delay the need for hair transplantation.
