View Full Version : Robotic Follicular Unit Graft Selection

In the harvesting step of a manual Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure, the surgeon visually selects larger follicular units (FU) i.e., those containing two or more hairs, both to maximize hair yield and minimize wounds in the donor area. The ARTAS® Robotic System can now automatically perform this function with speed and precision.

This video illustrates how the ARTAS robot selects specific grafts, aligns itself with the angle of the hair, and uses a 2-step follicular dissection technique which significantly minimizes the possibility of graft transection.

So I’m guessing with the graft selection function and the smaller punch there will be less scarring than regular FUE?
