New FUE Device Added to Hair Surgery Practice


OC Hair Restoration Advances FUE Hair Surgery with Cole Device

Dr Ken Williams, of The Irvine Institute of Medicine & Cosmetic Surgery, recently traveled to the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, Georgia, to train with  Dr. John Cole on his recent and newly acquired motorized and computerized FUE device,  the Programmable Power Cole Isolation Device (PCID).

According to Dr. Williams, the PCID FUE device designed by Dr. Cole  is the latest and most advance motorized FUE device in the hair surgical marketplace.  ” Dr. Cole’s device is the best FUE device I have ever used when performing FUE surgery.  The punches are the best and the forces and torque used are ideal when harvesting hair follicles.”  He adds,  “this means my patients will have less follicular transection and a better results.  It also means less musculoskeletal strains, aches, and pain for me.”


Dr. Cole describes his device as, “…the only programmable unit available for Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The unit features a touch screen computer that sends input to the controller. The controller manages the custom-made hand piece.The hand piece accommodates our new surrounded punches, which are much sharper than anything else on the market.”

Dr Williams is so impressed with the PCID with its advance technology and ultra sharp punches, that he decided to make it his primary harvesting device for performing FUE hair surgery.  Dr. Williams notes a significant increase in his harvesting rates with a reduction in the follicular transection rate.  As Dr. Cole describes it, the PCID device is like an “advance race car.  The other FUE devices are fine but they are like tractors.”

Dr. Williams is a board certified primary care physician practicing hair surgery in Orange County, California since 2009. He was one of the first hair restoration practices in California to provide primarily FUE hair restoration surgery.  He is a clinical professor of family medicine at Western University in Pomona, California, and is an active member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery.

Dr. Williams is one of a handful of surgeons in the United States actively engaged in teaching FUE to his peers.  At OC Hair Restoration, Dr Williams is the primary surgeon performing the hair restoration procedure harvesting hair grafts, creating recipients sites, administering and monitoring anesthesia, and placement of the follicular grafts. Unlike other hair restoration offices that hire technicians to harvest grafts and perform hair surgery without a medical license, Dr. Williams is active in all phases of hair surgery with his patients.
