New England Hair Restoration Surgeon Explains Benefits of a Multi-Therapy Approach

Dr. Robert Leonard, a Hair Restoration Surgeon With Offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, Says a Multi-Therapy Nonsurgical Approach Provides the Best Results in Preventing Further Hair Loss

CRANSTON, RI -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- If how much Americans spend in a particular industry is an accurate indication of a valuable service, it should be noted that each year, men in the U.S. spend up to $1 billion for hair loss solutions.(1) According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hereditary hair loss -- or androgenetic alopecia as it is medically referred to -- is a condition that affects nearly 80 million men and women. While there are numerous options for treating alopecia, hair loss expert and hair restoration surgeon Robert Leonard, DO, says using a multi-therapy approach is one of the most successful ways to prevent further progression of the condition

In a recent blog post titled, "What Is The Most Effective Approach To Hair Loss?," Dr. Leonard explains that the three, non-surgical medical forms of treatment for male pattern hair loss include:

"With women, we utilize ROGAINE® and laser therapy only," says Dr. Leonard. "Each one of these modalities works only on a percentage of follicles on the scalp, so two are better than one, and three are better than two in combination. One of the very important things that I believe in my practice is prevention. I highly recommend Propecia®, ROGAINE® foam, and laser therapy to stabilize the progression of non-transplanted hair so we don't have to keep catching up to further hair loss."

Depending on the amount of hair a patient has when he or she begins treatment is also a critical factor that is taken into consideration. "Very often, I recommend patients receive medical and laser therapy prior to surgery," says Dr. Leonard. "Some people who have lost just a very small amount of hair are ready to do a transplant and they think that's the way to go. That's not the best approach. It's not necessarily wrong to do a transplant at that stage, but it's not prudent because we're hitting a 'moving target.' I really try to stabilize progression before making a surgical recommendation."

In some situations, Dr. Leonard says patients can experience enough hair growth from the medical and laser therapies to make a transplant no longer necessary. Regardless of the treatment type, Dr. Leonard notes that, ultimately, all his hair loss patients express the desire for natural-looking results. "One of the biggest concerns a patient has is that the outcome is natural," he says. "We all want to have a natural result, and with the techniques I offer, that's almost a given situation. It's very disconcerting for most people to lose their hair. So if we can restore it and they don't have to think about it, it's a really nice thing. Self-confidence and self-esteem -- those are issues we try to treat in addition to giving people more hair."

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
