Dr.Sattur is involved with hair transplantation since almost eighteen years. Starting off with mini and micrografting and later graduating to Follicular Unit Transplant/Micro grafting (FUT) and now to follicular unit extraction and non-scalp donor harvest, he has been a part of the evolving scenario in hair restoration in the country. Since then he has been involved in over hundreds of hair transplants and is one of the few Plastic surgeons in the country with a dedicated practice in hair restoration. He believes in a combination of medical and surgical management in pattern hair loss.

He combines different techniques of donor harvest like strip harvest, follicular unit extraction (FUE), body hair transplant based on patient merits and criteria being well versed in both techniques of donor harvest. He is one of the strongest advocates of a holistic approach to hair loss problems combining surgery, medications and camouflage.

Apart from the practice of hair loss management, he has special interests in hair as a miniature organ and all disorders arising from its malfunction. As a chief investigator, he has conducted clinical trials to investigate role of Human Platelet Lysate in hair loss management, efficacy of different peptides in hair loss management.
