Greetings from Amsterdam, where it is currently midnite and rainy. Just got back from a delicious dinner with colleagues- Glenn (Charles), Arthur (Tzychinski- who knows how that Brazilian guy spells his name anyway?), Matt from Dr. Shapiro’s office, Dr. Eric from NY, and lastly Aaron. I am quite tired after a long red-eye flight that got me into Amsterdam around 10 am this morning. Putting the final touches on one of my lectures tomorrow for the ISHRS meeting- this one is on predictors of success in hair transplants for women- a topic quite relevant, given my particular interest in this area. The Power Point slides I presented are quite nice- pink backgrounds with white and maroon characters- very appropriate for a lecture on women, and definitely intended to get people’s attention. The other topic on which I am speaking tomorrow is as part of a panel discussing different treatments for scalp scarring. In particular, I am going to discuss the role of tissue expansion with the presentation of a particular favorite case of mine- 9 year old Addison of Missouri.
Quite a cozy city, and I am quite excited for the first (of 4) days of meetings.
