HYDERABAD: Hair transplantation which costs more than `50,000, was performed at Osmania General Hospital, which is the first in any of the government hospitals in the state.

A 27-year-old youth from the city was operated upon successfully for around six hours on Saturday and it would take around a week for the transplanted hair to gain strength. The transplantation was performed free of cost.

A 22-member team of doctors performed the surgery. While one team identified the hair to be transplanted from the rear part of the head of the patient, the other team transplaned the hair.

Usually people suffering from hair loss approach private clinics for  transplantation. With the process being costly, those from poor background cannot afford the treatment.

Doctors from the hospital’s Dermatology, Venereology and Leprosy (DVL) department said that anxious patients of all age groups, especially youth who are waiting to be married, approach them for the transplantation.

Health minister C Laxma Reddy congratulated the OGH team who performed the transplantation.
