Dr. Narendra G. Patwardhan, a Dermatologist in Pune, India visited our office today in Alpharetta, GA and observed Dr. Cole perform his method of FUE known as CIT (Cole Isolation Technique). Dr. Patwardhan was the program chairman for the Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons of India 2012 annual HairCon meeting in Calcutta, India. Patwardhan stated that this was one of the best state-of-the art facilities he had ever been in and that Dr. Cole and his team of staff did an excellent job of transplanting over 2500 FUE grafts on one patient in only 4-5 hours.
Dr. Patwardhan was most impressed and fascinated at the ease and precision at which Dr. Cole and his well-trained staff were able to use the instruments that were created by him and was very happy to observe these instruments being used live in action by Dr. Cole. He especially found that the PCID was very fascinating to watch in action.
Dr. Patwardhan said that there were several advantages to the methods and instruments that we use here in Dr. Cole’s practice and compared them to how he currently practices in India. In India he used two pairs of forceps to place grafts. Our surgical team here uses of one pair of forceps to place the grafts and Dr. Patwardhan stated that was much more efficient and speedy way to place grafts during surgery. He was also impressed by the speed and comfort that the patient was in while anesthesia and fluids were being administered using the Self-Filling Device. He had never seen such a device as the Electric Graft Chilling Device and said it significantly increased the survival of grafts to used this device over the ice chilling method that he uses in India.
All-in-all Dr. Patwarhan was very excited to have the opportunity to view Dr. Cole’s techniques live and to see all of the instruments he promotes being used in the FUE surgeries that he performs every day. He would highly recommend that any patient wanting an FUE hair restoration procedure to come to Dr. Cole for their surgery.

Dr. Cole discusses potential advantages with the Graft Chiller Plate by Cole Instruments, Inc. in this presentation about graft holding solutions.
Hypothermic storage reduces metabolism of the cells and can improve the survival rate of hair transplant grafts in some instances. Only the Graft Chiller Plate by Cole Instruments, Inc. can maintain a constant hypothermic temperature over the course of an entire hair transplant procedure. Ice can melt suddenly and result in a rapid rise in temperature. This sudden rise is traumatic to cells. If you add ice again to bring the temperature down again, this is an additional trauma to the hair follicle cells. The only way to prevent sudden fluctuations in temperature is with the Graft Chiller Plate by Cole Instruments, Inc.
Some feel that 4.0 degrees Celsius is optimal, while others think the temperature should be lower or higher. With the graft chiller plate, you can set the temperature at any level you like and then do your own study on survival rates at a variety of different cold storage temperatures.
This is a video demonstration of FUE hair restoration surgery using the professional tools from Cole Instruments including PCID, CID, CIT manual Punch Handle and more.
We were very pleased to host Dr. Patrick Mwamba today at our office in Alpharetta, Ga. Dr. Mwamba practices hair transplant surgery in Brussels. He has 12 years of experience in hair transplant surgery. Dr. Mwamba wanted to evaluate the PCID, the surrounded punches, and the newer battery powered Cole Isolation Device (BCID). Dr. Cole demonstrated these devices to Dr. Mwamba today. Dr. Mwamba was very impressed with the ease of extraction that these devices afford the physician. Dr. Mwamba currently uses the manual devices for CIT that Dr. Cole developed.
Recently, Dr. Cole visited HDC in Cyprus to allow the staff physicians there to experience the new items available from Cole Instruments. Dr. Cole originally trained the staff at HDC in both FUE and strip surgery in 2003. Since this time, HDC has done a wonderful job and produced many outstanding results for their patients.
Dr. Cole demonstrated his new Power Cole Isolation Device, PCID, along with his new line of punches. The staff physicians were able to see the advantages of the punches Dr. Cole manufactures along with the speed and accuracy of the PCID. Dr. Cole easily extracted grafts on a patient using the 0.85 mm punch set at a 2.3 mm depth. The patient had a previous strip procedure at another clinic and desired to fill the area in with additional hair, as well as treat the unsightly strip scar.
Dr. Cole then discussed the advantages of sharp punches over dull punches along with the theories behind FUE harvesting of grafts with minimal transection. The staff was very pleased with the sharp, thin walls of Dr. Cole’s punches. They immediately ordered 30 punches for use on their patients.
In a mission to make the highest quality hair transplant surgeries available to even more individuals, Dr. Cole is enthusiastic about training other surgeons in his proprietary Cole Isolation Technique. Licensed doctors not only have access to his guidance and training, but also to the full Cole Instruments line, including otherwise exclusive tools and devices.
