Dr. P. J. Mazumdar has qualified as American Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. This Board is the sole certification board for hair transplant in the US and in fact in the world.

Achieving the certification shows a true mastery over all aspects of Hair Transplant and certification is granted only to those who have all knowledge on the subject and also practises through ethical guidelines. Dr. P. J. Mazumdar is now the sole certified Hair Transplant specialist in not just North East but in Eastern India as a whole. Certification requires that the doctor is committed to follow all the established technical and ethical guidelines according to international norms established by the International Society of Hair Restoration Society and the American Board of Hair Restoration Society.

Dr. P. J. Mazumdar is also a member of the AHRSI (Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons of India) which is the official body for hair transplant in India. This membership is granted only to doctors who have an established reputation in the field and are recognized by their peers and who follow all ethical and legal norms as mandated by the AHRSI. The guidelines of the AHRS are in tune with those of the ABHRS and ISHRS.

Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic was founded in 2011 and first surgery was performed in 2012. This was the first FUE Hair Transplant in the North East. Arogyam has been a specialized FUE Clinic from the beginning and is the pioneer in FUE technique in the North East. Since then, thousands of patients have been examined and more than 500 procedures performed till date. Patients from every state in the North East and also neighbouring states like West Bengal, Sikkim, Bihar, UP and Jharkhand have been operated upon and even patients from far off states like Maharastra and Kerela have been operated. A large number of NRI’s from several countries, namely UAE and Gulf region, US, UK, New Zealand and Canada have also been operated upon, and also citizens of Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Dr. P. J. Mazumdar follows the international norms established for Hair Transplant by authorities like ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery), ABHRS (American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery) and AHRSI (Association of Hair Restoration Surgery of India). These norms have been established to protect patient’s safety as well as to ensure that the patient receives proper care for the best possible results. In accordance with these norms, the two main steps of the hair transplant procedure, slit making and harvesting, are done by Dr. P. J. Mazumdar himself. These steps involve making incisions in the patient and both ethically and legally should always be done by the surgeon, but sadly is too often left to technicians in today’s environment of hair transplant. In addition, the two vital pre-operative steps of counselling and hairline design are also done by Dr.P. J. Mazumdar. Planting is done under his supervision and the doctor remains present in the OT room throughout the procedure.

Arogyam Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Surgery Clinic operates as a medical entity and not as a business center, and hair transplant here is treated as a medical procedure rather than a profitable trade. While we do not claim to offer the cheapest rates, we can justifiably claim to provide a full medical procedure which will guarantee the safety of the patient and which follows the latest knowledge and techniques to ensure the best possible results for the patient.

Quality assuarance:
Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic takes several steps to ensure that quality is maintained for each and every patient. The key to quality maintenance is to implement quantizable quality standards and maintain proper documentation and review of processes. Downtown Hospital is an ISO 9001:2008 and NABH accredited hospital which demands strict adherence to quality control.Steps taken are:

Dr. P. J. Mazumdar is the first and only American Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and all procedures are done following the ethical and technical guidelines of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery. As such, patients can be assured of receiving full professional care as per International standards approved by the ABHRS and ISHRS.

100% safety assurance: all procedures are done in the main OT of Downtown Hospital with its full complement of anesthesiologists and critical care specialists. Hence patients are assured of full safety standards at the same level as that of major surgeries including transplant surgeries.

100% sterilization assurance: since procedures are done in the major OT full sterilization is maintained. Fumigation is done every week and swab tests are done to check for contamination.

Best instrumentation: Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic uses the best available instruments like 6X Heine Loupe for precision and accuracy, Blunt Titanium punches which avoids damage and transection of the grafts, Choi implanters to standardise the process of planting and prevent damage during planting, Major OT level sterilization, fumigation and autoclaving of all instruments, etc.

Counting trays: Counting trays are used to contain the grafts and all patients are given photographs on their mobiles which they can use to easily count the number of grafts taken out so that they can be sure that they have received the correct number of grafts.

Efficiency count: Efficiency counts for FUE like transection rates and speed of transplant are noted and documented for each case and reviewed every 10 cases. Arogyam Hair Transplant achieves international standards of transection and speed consistently.

Correct recepient density: To ensure correct recepient density, 'density stamps' are used to ensure proper density is achieved. Angle and direction of hair is meticulously maintained.

Out of body time: The out of body time, the time for which the graft is outside the body, is the most critical factor for success in hair transplant. Aroyam Hair Transplant follows a special procedure to ensure that this time is the minimum. This is done by doing only 500-600grafts at a time and then replanting them. This ensures that time out of body is less than or equal to1 hour only. This is the shortest period acheivable. Many centers do upto 2000-2500 grafts at a time so that time out of body goes upto 4-5 hours. We are proud of our time out of body quantum. Though this may cause some sacrifice of time but results are more important.

Follow up: follow up period is critical for the patient when there are many doubts and anxieties in his mind. In our clinic, Dr. P. J. Mazumdar will remain always accessible to the patient directly on his personal cell for any questions the patient may have during this period.
