Recently in June news of a boy death spread out in all parts of Chennai. This was news about Santosh, who was a medical student in Madras. He opted for hair transplantation for curing his grade 2 baldness. He opted for FUE at some basic hair salon as Hair Transplant Centre in Nungambakkam. The reason of his death is assumed to be side effect of anesthesia applied before the surgery.
It is definitely sad that a boy loss his life in return to a minor hair transplant surgery. When studying the news it is clear that the surgery of hair transplantation was not performed up to the mark. Santosh consulted a minor clinic for his transplantation he did not do any research and took the decision of hair transplant. When seen with the past records of hair transplantation these situations are not at all common.
Hair transplantation is a minor surgery which cannot lead to loss of life if carried out by an experienced and expert surgeon at standardized hair center. In about 9 of 10 cases results are successful and even those 1 % case results are never so disheartening. It is also advisable to research thoroughly about the clinic before actual transplantation for example in this case the Hair Transplant Centre of Nungambakkam was not a specialized clinic for hair transplantation. It does only have license of hair cutting and styling.
What adds to this is the doctors at the clinic were just a MBBS doctor. He was not a board certified doctor and he neither had any degrees in the field of dermatologist, surgery or hair transplantation. When it is in the case of hair transplantation it is always suggested to study about the doctor in details. You must research about his experience. Moreover no one will deny answering about telling the degree of the doctor if asked at the clinic itself. Thus one should take all the complete details about doctor and his experience before actually going for the transplantation.
What is more shocking to the incidence is wrong doses of anesthesia. Anesthesia is given to a patient of hair loss so as to avoid any pain during the surgery. It is under the rule that anesthesia must be given with proper care of the patient. Also the anesthesia specialist must be present to check the patient while at the time of procedure, but he was missing at the time of treatment and this was not ok. If you feel that your comfort is ignored you can immediately ask for it at the clinic. It is your right.
When complete story is read it is clear that it was wrong doctors, wrong clinic and wrong procedure which took life of Santosh. It was not hair transplant it was wrong procedure of the treatment. Hair transplant is a boom to hair loss and always give positive and satisfactory results what is your responsibility as a patient is that research wisely about each and every aspect of transplantation before going for hair transplantation.
