Dr. John Cole – Atlanta, US



Hair Restoration for Clients and Hair Restoration Training for Aspiring Surgeons

Dr. Cole (see also: https://www.forhair.com) initiated his private clinic in Atlanta, US, in 1990 after his graduation from medical school. Having received strong inspiration from the work of Dr. Masumi Inaba, which involved isolating single hair follicles with state-of-the-art microscopes and precision surgical equipment, Dr. Cole devoted his professional life the formulation of up-to-date and minimally invasive hair restoration techniques.

As one of the first hair surgeons to practice with the FUE technique, Dr. Cole conducted pioneering practice by using uniquely-designed surgical equipment to isolate single hair follicles. The CIT ® (Cole Isolation Technique), an approach patented by Dr. Cole, maximises the probability of extracted grafts surviving and, moreover, leads to outstandingly naturalistic results. This is primarily because the innovative technique facilitates ‘cherry-picking’ from the donor site.

To continue developing highly precise surgical equipment with the intention of increasing accuracy and efficiency, Dr. Cole has since been a world-leader in research focusing on the formulation of harvesting and restoration instruments. In being one of the first practitioners of the Lateral Slit Method, Dr. Cole rose to the forefront of the field of surgical equipment development.

A broad range of services are provided at Dr. Cole’s clinic, including Donor-Recharging, FUE, body hair transplant (BHT), among others. The pioneering BHT, rarely offered by other surgeons (Dr. Özgür of the HLC being a notable exception), is an effective way in which patients with depleted or insufficient donor sites can still satisfy their haircare requirements.

Andreas Krämer visited Dr. Cole’s clinic in 2006 for the first time. After making comprehensive observations of the clinical environment and the standards of practice, Krämer was convinced of the high-quality service provision. Images of his visit are presented as follows:

The CIT, patented by Cole himself, facilitated considerable development in precision depth control mechanisms. This is achieved by employing state-of-the-art surgical extraction equipment, specifically designed for follicular units. The PCID, an electric and delicately operating device, the donor area can be harvested and variable features of each patient can be accurately handled with an infinite range of optional settings. Additionally, the PCID facilitates rotation, oscillation, and roto-oscillation, and Dr. Cole has consistently enhanced his equipment over time. Many of the utensils he has designed can be purchased at www.coleinstruments.com.
