About ASMED FUE Hair Clinic Istanbul Turkey
Turkey has recently become one of the most popular hair restoration destinations in the world thanks a few top quality first class clinics in the territory such as ASMED Medical Center, founded by world renowned hair transplant surgeon Dr. Koray Erdogan with a team of 4 other doctors and over 20 professional staff.
After graduating in 1994 from the Faculty of Medicine at Hacettepe University (Ankara) and completing his medical residency, Dr. Erdogan attended the Faculty of Thoracic Surgery at Marmara University of Istanbul and worked in a Coronary Intensive Care Unit before focusing on hair restoration as his main career objective.
For well over a decade, Dr. Erdogan has earned himself a highly regarded reputation as one of the pioneers and forerunners in advanced hair transplantation treatments with a lifelong passion in offering his patients the most cutting edge and proven treatments for hair loss. His professional affiliations include European Society of Hair Restauration Surgery (ESHRS), International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) as well as Italian Society Hair Restoration (ISHR).
Presently, Dr. Koray Erdogan's ASMED Medical Center is one of the very few FUE exclusive clinics in the world. The focus on FUE speaks volume about Dr. Erdogan's dedication and commitment to offering a minimally invasive treatment option that is in the best interest of hair loss sufferers. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is currently the most sought after alternative to traditional strip technique. While there are many doctors and clinics who claim to offer FUE in order to stay competitive in the industry and keep up with the demand, there are very few truly experienced FUE clinics that offer this technique as an exclusive procedure..
Dr. Erdogan's resume and credentials are well represented by his participation in various professional bodies whose objectives are to further research and development in new hair restoration techniques. Below are some of Dr. Erdogan's recent participation & involvement in some of the high profile events around the world:
⇒ European Hair Transplant Workshop sponsored by ISHRS and hosted by Dr. Jean Devroye in Brussels. The objective is to examine the complementary nature of Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT) and FUE techniques through live surgical procedures to demonstrate that both methods are complementary and have their advantages. The event is also attended by other world renowned honorary faculty members including Dr. John Cole, Dr. Harris, Dr. Ronald Shapiro, Dr. Bradley Wolff.
⇒ 2nd Mediterranean FUE Workshop in Madrid.
⇒ 21st Annual Meeting of ISHRS (Workshop) in San Francisco.
⇒ Italian Society Hair Restoration (ISHR) Workshop in Sicíly.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) hair treatment - Besides FUE procedure, Dr. Koray Erdogan's ASMED clinic is also one of the first clinics in Europe to offer the latest Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) hair treatment. This is another testament to Dr. Erdogan's commitment in pursuing the most innovation techniques and treatments for his patients. PRP uses the patient's own blood as growth factors and is currently being experimented as a treatment for thinning hair as well as to speed up the healing and recovery of hair transplants. The protocol is very non invasive and can be administered very easily without having to subject the patient to surgery. While this treatment is still experimental, some doctors and clinics in the US have reported encouraging results for their patients.
ASMED - Commitment to FUE Innovation
Dr. Koray Erdogan and his team at ASMED are relentless in pushing FUE innovation to the next level. There are very few clinics or doctors in the world who share the same passion in brining FUE technology to the next level.
Below are some of the recent FUE innovations brought to the us by Dr. Koray Erdogan and his team.
KEEP - Koray Erdogan Embedding Placer
The K.E.E. P. (Koray Erdogan Embedding Placer) device was developed by Dr. Koray Erdogan. It is an instrument that allows for maximum grafts survial and minimize grafts placement damage caused by pre-made incisions in traditional FUE procedures. The instrument is available in different sizes to accommodate varying graft size and graft condition. The instrument can undergo normal sterilization processes and is available for both left and right hand application.
In a study conducted by Dr. Koray Erdogan, it was found that hair regrowth rate was 93.4% (112 hairs) with K.E.E.P verses only 77.5% (93 hairs) using traditional FUE forceps that are commonly adopted in other clinics.
ASMED - FUE Graft Estimator
ASMED's FUE Graft Estimator is another great invention by Dr. Koray Erdogan and his team. The Graft Estimator is an iphone application that can be downloaded for free.
Graft Calculator helps control hair per graft averages while extracting grafts from different zones on the scalp (temporal, parietal and occipital) through data simultaneously input by surgical assistants as they check graft quality and hairs per graft averages during the donor follicles extraction process. The application provides valuable real time feedback that allows for the adjustment of punch size and technique according to the set homogenization plan and the targeted hairs per graft average. An added feature of the Graft Calculator is that patients can follow the number of grafts extracted and other surgical statistics during surgery on surgical room screens.
The Graft Calculator allows for the tracking of time and speed and aides pacing during extractions. It also permits the surgeon to view the statistics of each operator involved in the procedure.
FUE COVERAGE VALUE
Coverage Value is an innovative technique developed by Dr. Koray Erdogan to standardize the criteria for determining hair transplant coverage. Hair coverage is an important concnern for both the patient and the doctor. Ultimately, patients are looking for good coverage value for what they are paying. With Coverage Value, the question of hair coverage is determined by multiplying the number of hairs in a given area of the scalp by the hair’s thickness. The calculation is very accurate with the assistance of scanning robots, allowing the surgeon to respect the calculated Coverage Value as an important guide for all FUE hair transplant procedures. It is an indispensable tool in establishing a scientific relationship between donor capacity and coverage.
KE-BOT - KORAY ERDOGAN ROBOTIC SCANNING
KE-Bot is another new FUE innovation by Dr. Koray Erdogan. It is a 360-degree circular robotic scanning system that evaluates all aspects of hair transplantation through high definition imaging. The robotic scan collects 3-D scalp monitoring and data collection from every angle. This robotic scanning device allows the doctor to evaluate each patient's hair’s caliber, texture and density in the donor area as well as overall donor capacity. All this enables the doctor to collect extremely accurate extraction site calculations with potential transection rates on a patient by patient basis. Post-surgically, this robotic scan can monitor the recipient site and determine the actual number of grafts placed and the density obtained while reporting authentic transection rates in relation to the number of placed grafts.
