Dr. Robert M. Bernstein discusses FUT and FUE hair transplants and explains why the extraction phase of an FUE procedure is ideally suited to robotics.

The follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure consists of four steps: the separation of follicular units from the surrounding tissue, the removal of follicular units from the scalp, the creation of recipient sites, and the placement of follicular units into these sites. The first step is performed by the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system -- the part of the FUE procedure requiring the greatest precision and that is most subject to human error.
