New Robotic Hair Transplant Procedures Promise Precision

Balding and thinning hair is an issue that plagues both men and women of all ages and races. Not only does the loss of hair from ones scalp cause an altered outward appearance, but the long term effects on the ego and self esteem of the person who has lost the hair can be detrimental.


For years, procedures, surgeries even poor looking hair replacement pieces have been used to try and solve the issue. But thanks to technological innovations, hope for hair transplant surgeries that are fast and far less invasive are becoming a reality.


One recent news report by Fox 4 detailed the use of a special tiny robot to allow John Quinn to have a more natural looking result from his hair transplant.


The system, referred to as the, “ARTAS robotic system” makes it more efficient and precise to remove grafts of hair one follicular unit at time and then makes use of a digital imaging software according to the report, that  lays out the area where the hair grows and implants it into those areas that are plagued with thinning or hair loss.


In addition to more natural looking hair transplant and better precision, the use of robots to perform the procedure also means reduced scarring and recovery.


NBC 10 also recently ran a report on the use of the Artas System on Chris Coppa who had suffered from balding issues going all the way back to highschool. While the procedure is still fresh, the success of the new robotic method is touted as a perfect solution especially for those who wear their hair short and expose the scalp because there is no scarring and because the hair transplants are inserted with such precision.

Explaining the procedure to NBC10, Dr. Robert Leonard of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates said he controls the robot with a remote and a large screen TV.

“Everything's magnified so I can see exactly where the next harvest will be, and if I don't like where that harvest is -- for example, if there's a prior scar or something -- I can skip over that one and go to the next one.”

The ARTAS System is developed by Restoration Robotics, a privately held medical device company.
