Dr. Bauman was the first hair restoration surgeon in the United States to use the French CapilliCARE® Microscopic Hair Analysis system-a non-invasive digital microscope that can acquire and record accurate hair density and hair caliber measurements in several areas of the scalp for future comparison for his patients. It is extremely useful to detect progressing hair loss in areas that are not yet visible to the naked eye, as well as track the responses to various forms of treatment. Dr. Bauman was also one of the first surgeons to routinely utilize The WAND®–a computerized, painless injection system for local anesthesia for every transplant performed, for maximum patient comfort. Digital ‘preview’ imaging is a routine part of all of Dr. Bauman’s consultations, to ensure that each patient has appropriate expectations of what the procedure can provide. Low Level Laser Therapy is a new, non-chemical, non-invasive technology that holds promise for the treatment of hair loss. Dr. Bauman was one of the first physicians in the world to use laser therapy in a hair restoration practice.
Dr. Bauman, his wife, Karen, and sons, Ross and Spencer, are permanent residents of Boca Raton, Florida.
