Special Advertising Section Get Results with Parsley Waldman Hair Center Surgical hair restoration, or a hair transplant, is one of the most effective treatments for hair loss and can result in improved selfesteem and a more youthful and vigorous appearance. The Parsley Waldman Hair Center was one of the earliest clinics in the world to adopt the technique of microscopically prepared follicular units. Today, this specifc technique is the "gold standard" of hair restoration surgery because it offers the most natural looking results. Previous hair transplant patients at the Parsley Waldman Hair Center describe the procedure as "minimally painful" using local numbing medicine. It is performed in their offce, in an outpatient setting. Patients watch movies as the team performs the transplant. A strip of skin (donor strip) containing more permanent hair is removed from the back of the head. The donor strip is then dissected into individual grafts with different numbers of hairs. Dr. Waldman explains: "Hair grows naturally in groups of one, two and three hair follicles. After we prepare the grafts using a stereo microscope, we transfer the grafts into the balding areas resulting in a denser and more natural looking outcome." The hair growth is gradual over the next 12-18 months. Once transplanted, the hair should grow naturally for the rest of the person's life. Find out if surgical hair restoration is right for you. Contact Parsley Waldman Hair Center to schedule a no obligation evaluation with a physician.

Many studies show that doctors who specialize in mammography are more accurate at interpreting the images when compared to physicians with less experience. Get your mammogram read by a doctor who specializes in reading them. Also, choose a breast center where you have access to the best mammography technology. Digital mammograms provide improved visibility versus traditional film-screen mammograms. 2D mammograms are the gold standard for breast cancer detection and when used with 2D mammography, 3D is superior to 2D alone. — Women's Diagnostic Center 8.13 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 11 7
