Robots Make Hair Transplant Surgery Easier

Hair restoration surgeons across the world are raving about the new hire in many of their offices that's making hair transplant surgeries easier and better.

The new hire isn't another doctor, but its skill level and accuracy are commendable. Robots have taken a center role in hair transplant surgery for their ability to deliver permanent, natural looking hair transplants in less time.

Specifically, the ARTAS Robotic System is used by surgeons to help patients with hair loss by performing FUE - which hair follicles are harvested and then relocated to the problem areas on a patient's scalp with minimal scarring.

Compared to a manual procedure, the robot can quickly extract hair in a minimally invasive way. And there are no stitches or staples needed.

Dr. Robert Leonard and Dr. Matthew Lopresti of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates and serving the New England area, are touting the benefits of using robots for hair restoration.

Dr. Leonard, the founder and chief surgeon of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates recently blogged about the topic and highlighted the benefits of using robotic surgery for hair restoration.

He noted that, "With ARTAS... We actually move individual grafts, which are then transplanted to the top of the head, so there's no linear scar that might be evident if a person were to wear his hair really short."  

Many implementations of robotic procedures in the medical setting have taken off and become the go-to method for surgeons. In fact, a report from bcc Research forecasts that the global market for medical robotics and computer-assisted surgical equipment will hit $3.6 billion by 2016.
