HOW IMAGE PROCESSING IN FUE HARVESTING CAN BE USED IN CALCULATING THE REDUCTION OF SKIN TRAUMA BY INJECTING NORMAL SALINE
Dr Georgios Zontos the only European speaker at the 21st ISHRS scientific meeting in San Francisco on October 2013, presented a new technique that sagnificantly advances the benefits of FUE Harvesting
Dr Georgios Zontos has been working as the medical director of Haarklinikken in Denmark for over 5 years. He graduated with a degree in Physics, in Medicine and in Medical Physics namely, B.Sc M.D. and M.Sc.
Dr Zontos is an internationally prominent surgeon in the field of hair restoration surgery, and a published author of medical publications. He is a researcher for the University of Patras School of Medicine, where he has been supervising a hair transplantation project since 2010.
Dr Zontos practices exclusively in the area of Follicular Unit Extraction ("FUE"), which is a minimally invasive hair transplant technique. He is an expert in this field and is a regular speaker at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. The aim of the Society is the development and sharing of knowledge and skill relating to hair restoration surgery.
Dr Zontos is also registered with the Sundhedsstryrelsen, or the National Board of Health, the supreme professional health care authority in Denmark. The Sundhedsstryrelse, which considers Dr Zontos to be in "good standing", has granted him the right to practice medicine and the permission to practice independently as a physician under licence number 06D8L. Since 19 May 2008, Dr Zontos has been registered to practice hair transplantation, including pre-assessing the patient before hair transplantation in Denmark under registration number 7-703-23-115/1/ANM. In addition he is qualified for independent practice in Greece and the UK.
Actively participating at the forefront of research, Dr. Zontos has pioneered and patented an advanced method of follicular unit extraction (FUE), called the Long Hair FUE. This method dramatically improves on traditional FUE by avoiding any shaving to the donor area. Dr. Zontos also developed a technique of minimizing the skin injury to the donor area while improving the quality of the extracted follicular units. This method increases the survival rate and results in a high density, natural, undetectable fashion. This method was recently presented at the 20th ISHRS conference in the Bahamas. He is also involved in research investigating the use of robotics in hair transplantation .
He has performed the FUE procedure on approximately 3000 patients in Denmark, Greece, Germany, France, Cyprus, UK, Israel with great success. As medical director of Haarklinikken, he has established a practice dedicated exclusively to providing the very best in medical and surgical treatments for hair loss.
His unwavering focus on state-of-the-art medical and surgical techniques and dedication to patient advocacy has firmly established him as a leader in the field of hair restoration.
