Because of your mastery of the ARTAS Procedure, we are designating your clinic as an "ARTAS Center of Clinical Excellence." As part of this recognition your clinic will receive:
    A plaque and a certificate indicating that you have achieved "ARTAS Center of Clinical Excellence"status

    Your team of assistants will receive a pin and a certificate recognizing them as "ARTAS Specialists"
    The special designation will be noted on our ARTASHair.com consumer facing website
    In order to achieve this status, a center must be able to perform ARTAS Procedures with the following performance criteria: procedures of ≥ 2000 grafts, follicle transection rates of ≤ 10%, harvest yields of ≥85%, and harvest speeds of 700 grafts/hr.

    We congratulate you and your staff on this exemplary achievement and appreciate the contributions you have made to making the ARTAS Procedure a success.
    We have been on the forefront of the robotic technology and are one of the most experienced centers in the world having performed over 300 000 follicular unit transfer with ARTAS so far....
    Perhaps I stand corrected Dr. Turowski and again, it is obvious that you are an excellent surgeon which is made clear by your status as an IAHRS doctor. If I am wrong about this particular award, there was no harm meant. I was actually giving you compliment on your real credentials, which are very impressive and as you will probably agree, sets you apart from other doctors who might have been giving the same award of excellence from the company that makes the ARTAS. Like I said to HJ Philadelphia, no matter how he came to choose his surgeon he obviously made a good choice.

    Iím sure youíre going to have a great result and thanks for keeping us posted. This is really the first time that Iíve seen such detailed ARTAS information so Iím very interested in this forum as Iím sure the rest of the community is. Iíve tried to find decent before and after pictures online and itís impossible. To be honest, many of the doctor's websites who use the ARTAS look very similar and I think share the same pictures since the same ones keep popping up, and they are usually in like a slider format that looks kind of fake to me.I think itís great that you are taking the time to post your impressions and your detailed pictures. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for your comments. I agree, it is hard to find good before and after pictures to see who is doing what! That is really why I wanted to share my experience to make it easier for others . I just added new update with new pics from today. I will update again in a few days. Good Luck.

    Is it possible do more than 1500 Grafts/Session using ARTAS? I am under the assumption that ARTAS can do MAX of 1500 . In this instance we are talking 3300 Grafts using ARTAS . I assume it is 1 session.

    Pls suggest

    Based on my research before choosing a Doctor, most willing to do up to 2000-2500 per 1 session. My Doctor told me he can do 3200 per 1 session, however we ended up with more grafts and did about 3350, i was told. Doctor told me that I was his second highest for #of grafts per session. But it was a long day, started about 8am and finished around 10pm (of course had lunch break, etc). But it was okay for me, i was watching movie on netflix, talking to tech team, be on internet... Also need to add that I went to Dr. office the day before just for couple of hours to do site making by the Artas. So, bottomline, it is not up to Artas alone but more important, depend on the Doctor and his team and their experience how the procedure go and how many grafts can or willing to do. I wanted to this only once so wanted to do as much as possible, plus I live in philadelphia and this Doctor in Chicago, had to do what needed in 1 session. I hope this help. Please let me know if you have any other question.

    Default New Update-25th day Post Surgery-Artas Robotic Hair Transplant 3300 Grafts-April 2015

    Today 4.26.2015 is the 25th day post surgery (just added some photos-taken today) :
    Till about a week ago, i felt that my healing progress was good but since then i feel a bit more irritation and more redness on my scalp (specially the donor area. This is noticeable when comparing the new pictures to photos posted last time.) specially since the numbness is almost all gone, I can feel the irritation more. I am not in pain and doing okay overall, however the back and even the sides of my head (the donor area) get irritated when I put it on pillow at night (touching any fabric irritates it) so i try to deal with it and at night I try to position myself in a way that my forehead be on the pillow and not the donor area.
    Other changes: Numbness is almost all gone. I have also noticed couple of hair falling out from the recipient area but not a whole lot.
    I am not an expert and this is my first procedure, so I was a bit concern that within the last week or so my healing has taken a step back and have a bit more irritation and redness. So, a few days ago, I sent an email with some pictures to Dr. Turowski expressing my concern, but i did not hear back from him. After two days, I then contacted his Lead tech person. She called me and gave me some advice which i am following. (for example, i had just switched to regular shampoo, which should be okay but she said for now go back to the shampoo & conditioner that was provided by the doctor office.)

    Smile 5 Weeks Update-Hair growing!-Artic Robotic Hair Transplant-3300 grafts-By Dr.Turowski

    Update-5.7.2015-It is now 5 weeks post surgery. The pictures added now were taken yesterday. Since my last update I got a hair cut and the very short hair keep my scalp cooler and less irritated. I feel that not only i am healing i am also growing hair already! I did not loose a lot of the transplanted hair (at least not yet), which is not the case for most people. Most people loose it in the first few weeks. I was worried about that, but doing research as well as asking my Doctor, they were telling me that this is actually a good thing and should help for better result. In fact, i sent these new photos to Dr. Turowski and asked him to let me know how am i doing/healing since this is my first time and not sure how i should be at this stage. He replied that he thinks i am doing really well, healing and very lucky to have a lot of hair growth with many more to come. He also thought that my donor site looks good as well and the remaining redness & itchiness should gradually go away in the weeks to come.
    So, i just have to be patient. It feels great driving the car windows down letting air blow on the scalp. (just FYI: last 2 pics taken with Flash)

    Looking good so far Hj. Have you been advised to put anything on the donor to help minimize the irritation? It looks like once that dissipates the donor is going to look really good even at that very short length. Thanks for keeping us posted.
