The combination of artistry and technology means patients are getting the ‘best of both worlds,’ and the end result is hairlines that look incredibly natural and not transplanted.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) February 09, 2016
Top hair transplant surgeon and NeoGraft FUE pioneer, Dr. Alan J. Bauman is now offering ARTAS Robotic-assisted hair transplants. Bauman Medical Hair Transplant and Hair Loss Treatment Center, the world’s largest stand-alone clinic dedicated exclusively to treating hair loss, had a state-of-the-art private procedure room designed and constructed specifically for robot-assisted hair transplant surgery.
Dr. Bauman has long been a pioneer of new hair transplant procedures; since 2001, Dr. Bauman and his team have transplanted nearly two million FUE grafts. In 2008 he became the first ABHRS-certified hair restoration physician to routinely use NeoGraft FUE for hair transplant procedures. Dr. Bauman was present at the launch of the ARTAS hair transplant robot in Anchorage, Alaska in 2011, and has followed the technology over the last few years, in preparation for adding an ARTAS robot to his Bauman Medical practice.
"We look forward to continued collaboration with internationally renowned, respected and experienced FUE surgeon, Dr. Alan Bauman, as we continue to roll out innovative upgrades to the ARTAS system that will help him continue to provide high quality hair transplant results to his patients. His extensive experience in FUE and his ongoing feedback regarding our system remains invaluable as we continue to educate hair loss sufferers about the safety, efficacy and results of minimally-invasive hair transplant surgery using the ARTAS system,” said ARTAS President and CEO Jim McCollum.
“At Bauman Medical, our goal is to continually be looking over the horizon to see what technology, treatments or procedures can be utilized to help our patients effectively fight and win the battle against hair loss,” Bauman explained of his decision to add the ARTAS robotic system to his practice. “The ARTAS robotic system has advanced greatly in a short period of time and Restoration Robotics continues to move forward with features that are helping hair transplant patients achieve consistently better results in many areas of their procedures.”
One of the most exciting features of the ARTAS System is the ARTAS Hair Studio, an interactive software program that allows the surgeon to create a digital 3D preview image for patients, which will help paint a picture for patients to ensure that they have realistic expectations going into surgery. According to Dr. Bauman, this tool will be invaluable when communicating with patients prior to surgery.
“There is so much artistry involved in hair transplantation, more than most patients realize, so having the ability to artistically create a plan on a 3D digital model, discuss and agree upon that plan with a patient, then transfer that plan to the ARTAS robotic system--complete with density, angle and orientation of grafts--and have that plan executed flawlessly by the ARTAS system, is a major draw to me as a surgeon,” asserted Dr. Bauman.
What is the ARTAS Hair Transplant Robot?
The ARTAS robot is a state-of-the-art medical device that assists in hair transplant surgery by helping to safely and effectively extract intact hair follicles for transplantation using the FUE technique. The robot’s precision allows patients to benefit from an unprecedented level of safety, efficacy, and comfort during their hair transplant procedure.
“The combination of artistry and technology means patients are getting the ‘best of both worlds,’ and the end result is hairlines that look incredibly natural and not transplanted,” explained Dr. Bauman.
The innovative ARTAS robotic FUE system uses advanced digital imagery to map and analyze the hair in natural groupings on the scalp. The system features precision robotics, utilizing stereovision sensors to detect and analyze follicular units—calculating density, exit-angles, orientation and location and proceed with harvesting based on the algorithms programmed by the surgeon.
Key Benefits of ARTAS Robotic-Assisted FUE Hair Transplants
- Increased accuracy of FUE graft harvesting
- Increased survival of harvested follicular unit grafts
- Reduced harvesting time
- Computerized selection of FUE grafts to maximize hair yield and minimize donor area usage
- More accurate and efficient harvesting of grafts from the sides of the scalp
- More accurate and efficient harvesting of grafts in patients with atypical hair characteristics and certain ethnic patients
- Increased speed and accuracy in creating recipient sites
The ARTAS Robotic System is the product of nearly a decade of research and development by Restoration Robotics in collaboration with some of the most respected leaders in hair restoration medicine. After rigorous testing in clinical trials, the ARTAS Robotic System received 510(k) clearance from the FDA in 2011.
