"When I first saw a demonstration of a hair transplant carried out in New York I could barely contain my excitement. This is my future I thought. This is something I could excel at. As in any branch of surgery there has to be a first time that a procedure is carried out by the surgeon. With a certain amount of trepidation coupled with the excitement of doing what I felt was the first step into a challenging future I carried out my initial hair transplant with the assistance of the American nurses. I loved it. It was the first of many thousands of hair transplants that I carried out over a period of about 25 years. 25 years of carrying out hair transplantation, waiting for the hair to grow, seeing the excitement of the patients as the hair started to appear and finally seeing the end result. A most satisfying profession to be in. I look back and consider how lucky I have been in having such a satisfying career".
