Because of his extensive hair restoration knowledge and dedication to research and education, Coalition hair transplant surgeon Dr. Carlos Wesley was recently selected to author the hair transplantation sections for the popular “WebMD” and “Medscape” websites. Because both WebMD and Medscape are very popular online medical resources, Dr. Wesley’s contributions will help numerous patients and physicians better understand hair loss and modern hair restoration.
According to a representative from Dr. Wesley’s clinic:
Dr. Carlos K. Wesley was selected to provide a comprehensive overview of the field of surgical hair restoration to fellow physicians and patients worldwide. By serving as the primary author of “Hair Transplantation” for WebMD (owners of both Medscape and eMedicine), Dr. Wesley is responsible for highlighting the most recent advances in an objective manner. This online resource for physicians, other health professionals, and patients features peer-reviewed original medical articles and presents a translation of the body of current research into clinical practice guidelines from the perspective of each subspecialty.
The WebMD/Medscape Reference is the most authoritative and accessible point of care medical reference available to physicians and other health care professionals on the Internet. WebMD/Medscape Reference has a worldwide audience, including all of the 192 UN-recognized countries as well as other states and territories. The site is part of the WebMD Professional Network, which receives an average of 1.5 million physician visits per month.
The evidence-based content, updated regularly by some 7,000 attributed physician or health care provider authors and editors, provides the latest practice guidelines in 38 clinical areas. A 2009 study showed 89.1% of physician specialists respondents accessed peer-reviewed material online, including WebMD and 12% used WebMD as their first source when conducting research online.
Dr. Wesley composed the updated review article entitled, “Hair Transplantation Overview” that is featured in the dermatology section of the physician reference site. All content in WebMD is available free of charge for professionals and consumers alike. The article may be viewed here.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Wesley on the hair transplantation articles!
