Trichots hair transplant Mass.
is costing a lot of money, but it’s the only hair transplant facility in the country where people can donate their own hair.
The state of Massachusetts said Wednesday that it had spent more than $1 million on the transplant of about 1,000 trichotillomania patients.
Trichotillus is a fungus that causes the hair loss in people who have had a tumor removed.
The trichots transplant program is a small community-based, privately funded clinic that treats more than 6,000 people with trichotic hair loss.
The surgery took place in Boston last week.
The patient was on the waiting list for a trichotomy, and doctors decided to take him off the waiting lists and instead try to help people with the condition.
Massachusetts Health Commissioner Kathleen O’Toole said she’s pleased the program is operating at full capacity.
The state has about 2,000 patients in its trichotomies program, which includes some 200 people in Massachusetts.
“This is a great opportunity to help our patients, and I’m very proud that we’re able to make this happen,” O’Cola said.
“It’s really gratifying to see the tremendous response we’ve gotten from the community,” she said.
MassHealth, the state’s health care agency, will pay for the trichology surgery and the cost of administering the transplants.
The trichosis treatment is done by removing the hair follicles and hair follicle mass from the affected person’s head, and placing the transplanted hair in a comb to remove the remaining hair follules.
Doctors then replace the hair transplants with fresh transplants of hair.
O’Toolle said the program will keep people on the list, and that they can keep their transplants as long as they want.
