Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query.

Hair Transplant is a specialized procedure and also an expensive one. The results depend upon the treating surgeon. You should opt for a surgeon who has vast experience and photographs of previous cases treated by him. PRP alone has no use but is done with hair transplantation to enhance the effect.

There are reviews written by our users about doctors in our listing, those can guide you for a better doctor in your locality. You can search for a doctor in your area at WWW.WWWW.WW

Thank you so much for the answer Dr XXXXXXX

In an ambiguity to select the doctor after reading all the blogs. Whether i should go for Dr. Venkatram Or HairLine Clinic (Dr Dinesh). Could you please advise the name. Or else any other option. Or please advise, how should I chose the doctor. Please advise.. I am not able to take decision. (I visited both of them and showed so many photos with past experience). Please advise if you would like me to call. I hope you will save me & my life with your decision.

Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for your follow up query.
Dr. Venkatraman Mysore is a better option.
He is one of the earliest dermatologist in india who started hair transplantation. He has been training many dermatologists under him for transplantation. U can take my reference if u wish.

Hi Doctor, this is James aged 30 years. I have undergone Hair transplantation on 29th Aug 2013. I have baldness in the front and on the crown part. After transplantation, i started using Mintop forte as recommended by my Doctor who has done the transplantation. He gave Finax 1mg for one month.

Question is,

1. How long does it take to see the complete results of hair transplantation?

2. How long should i continue to use the Mintop Forte oil. (I am using 5% solution twice a day).

3. Any diet recommended for good hair growth.



Thanks in advance.



Best regards,

James.

My nephew, 8years old had an internal injury on his right kidney. Doctors did a surgery on his tummy to remove the blood from inside. after 2 weeks the kid started complaining on pain in the tummy. after an ultra sound examination, doctors found that haematoma around the right kidney had increased & there was free fluid around the haematoma and in the pelvis.



- Is there any reason to remove the kidney?

- What treatment should he be given?
