ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System in Houston
A figure revealed by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) fixes the number of men affected by male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia in the United States at 35 million. Also half of the male population will be afflicted by baldness by the age of 50.
However they need not despair as hi-tech solutions which promise optimum hair restoration are available nowadays. One such method is the ARTAS robotic system.
ARTAS robotic system is a FDA cleared, physician controlled, computer-assisted technology that leverages the precision control enabled by robotics to assist hair restoration surgeons.
Dr. Rashid Rashid of Mosaic Clinic in Houston, Texas has installed the ARTAS System in his clinic. Restoration Robotics has supplied the system to the clinic.
It is the endeavor of Dr.Rashid to provide maximum care while undertaking hair restoration procedures for patients. He choose the ARTAS system as it leaves no linear scars and is also less time consuming considering the treatment time and recovery time.
Being minimally invasive and more precise, best results can be expected giving maximum client satisfaction.
During the hair transplantation procedure the surgeon removes healthy, functioning hair follicles from hairy areas of the scalp ( sides and back of head which are genetically immune to balding) and transplants them to the areas of the bald patches on the patient’s scalp.
The area of the scalp to be used for transplantation is first trimmed so it can be digitized by the ARTAS Robotic System. Digital maps of the area are made to analyze the position of each natural grouping of hair.
Under the doctor’s guidance, the system removes donor hair in a random fashion. This retains the look of the donor area which may otherwise become bare. The process is repeated until the desired amount of hair is acquired.
The grafts are then transplanted into the desired areas of the scalp, according to the physician’s design. These implanted grafts grow as permanent hair.
The patient can confidently expect new hair to grow within a year. The patient will gain a new appearance looking more like himself before he started losing hair. The restored hair not only retrieves his looks but also his lost confidence and self-esteem. Hair transplantation is a permanent solution to treating hair loss.
Restoration Robotics specializes in medical devices that help hair transplant surgeons with image guided technology and precision robotics to enhance the quality of hair restoration. The devices help both physicians and their patients.
