The physician-assisted ARTAS® Robotic System facilitates hair restoration surgery through minimally invasive follicular unit harvesting. High resolution digital imaging and precision robotics identify and select the optimal follicular units for harvesting in order to improve the outcome in patients undergoing follicular unit extraction (FUE) (http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/robotic-hair-transplant/fue-overview/?utm_source=baldtruthtalk.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=BaldTruthTalk-Article) procedures.

Its advantage over other traditional techniques can be attributed to precise graft harvesting, minimal post-op discomfort, and no linear donor scar. The ARTAS robotic system delivers speed, accuracy, and reproducibility to the FUE procedure. It changes the experience for patients undergoing surgical hair restoration by eliminating the drawbacks associated with older, more invasive methods such as strip harvesting.

A limitation of FUE procedures is the short-term cosmetic problem of clipping the entire donor area in the back and sides of the scalp. The long-hair robotic technique avoids this problem by harvesting through a broad band of clipped hair that is covered with longer hair combed down over the harvested area. This technique enables the physician to harvest relatively large amounts of donor hair without shaving the patient’s entire scalp.
