The majority of hair restoration surgery cases in a typical practice are men with androgenetic alopecia. However, females also present with hair loss, and it is important to correctly diagnose female patterned hair loss. Treating women with hair loss can be difficult. Sometimes it is necessary to perform repeated blood tests in order to look for subtle abnormalities. The design and techniques for treating female hair loss with transplant surgery are unique. Most education in hair restoration surgery focuses on hair transplantation for males with limited sessions on females. Therefore, a need was recognized for a workshop that was devoted to female hair loss and restoration.

A regional workshop on the topic of Female Hair Loss Diagnosis and Treatment took place July 17-19, 2009, in Poznan, Poland, and was hosted by Jerzy R. Kolasinski, MD, PhD. The lectures and surgeries were professionally recorded and edited, and this resultant DVD set (4 DVDs) was produced. CME credit will not be awarded for this educational video.  Click here to download Order Form.

DVD 1, 2, and 3 contain the lectures; and DVD 4 contains surgical footage.
