One of the things that made this journey so exciting for me was the amazing access I had to the live cases, doctors, and patients. And everyone I interviewed was upfront and candid. I was a little worried at first when I met Dr. Raghotham Patlola. He was the first doctor to perform an in-human case in the United States. He made it clear during our first meeting in the summer of 2016 that he was skeptical of the DABRA Laser System. Even after a couple of cases and some success using DABRA, he remained incredibly formal and selective in his word choice as he talked to me on camera about the first day of results.
After a few more cases, he was so excited by the results, he started using his smartphone to capture the results of the cases and send them to us. Even more, he set aside time at the LINC conference in Leipzig, Germany six months later, to sit with me in the back of a restaurant for an in-depth interview on camera, where he was candid and expansive on the benefits of using the DABRA Laser System versus other tools in his armamentarium. It was like night and day, which to me speaks volumes about how highly he values this new technology.
Below, you'll hear his uncut commentary after day one, see the first case I received from his smartphone that he touts as a great success, and a clip from my in-depth interview with him in Leipzig.
