    Doctor Corenman, Would hair loss meds like Propecia or Avodart effect a successful fusion? Thanks for your advice.

    This is a very good question. Both medications are anti-androgens. Androgen is a helpful anabolic hormone and deficiency might negatively impact a fusion.

    However, I have had fracture patients on these medications and the fractures still healed normally so I would say there could be a theoretical impairment but probably not a clinical problem.

    I am unaware of any studies to this subject but you might search Pubmed for any articles on this.

    Dr. Corenman
