Part 2 coming soon including Dr. Nigam’s scarless FUE (a new development) and future collaboration with Dr. Gerd Lindner.
Me: What made you move from the weight loss industry to the hair loss industry? Seems like you had hair loss?
Dr. Nigam: It is a long story how I entered even obesity and metabolic disease management … I remain in a field till it excites me…I worked hard in the field of metabolic diseases and obesity…as a biochemist and physician…as there were not physicians in this field..only fitness trainers and dieticians… it is better to be a big man in a small town..rather than small man in a big town…. I could look into those problems from different perspective. I looked at obesity from the perspective of hormones..lifestyle,biochemistry…metabolic syndrome…and indianised the low carb diets..apart from behavioral modification interventions. Yes, I had hairloss from the age of 35.
Me: Is Dr. Mwamba still there (his second visit to India)?
Dr. Nigam: He left on the 24th of November.
Me: Any other surgeons or researchers from the west flying in?
Dr. Nigam: Cole said after Christmas he may…in December I will be going to Berlin to meet Gerd, and to Brussels to Dr. Mwamba’s clinic.
Me: How about Jahoda and Tsuji folks?
Dr. Nigam: It is better I visit their labs…rather than jahoda or tsuji comes to me..only difference is I have achieved certain success on human scalp as against tsujis work on and with mouse cells.
Me: I am also into health related issues that concern me and have several websites related to those issues. I am a mini Dr. Nigam without labs or any biology background!
Dr. Nigam: ya we are not traditional persons or docs.. I remember Henry Ford’s words… he was a visionary…and said that if he needed facts in engineering or finance or legal etc..all he used to do is talk to the best in his organisation and get the facts..not just the informatiuon..and his job was to apply the facts..he was only 5th or something pass..but he created the 6th cylinder in cars…not any engineer…I do the same..I want the solution for MPB…my guts said it lies in immediate present with fusion of hair restoration with biotech..and in the future with pure biotech science
