4th International Conference and Expo on Cosmetology & Trichology - June 22-24 2015

Dr. Michael B. Wolfeld, a board certified plastic surgeon at Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration in New York and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, was a featured speaker at the 4th International Conference & Expo on Cosmetology and Trichology in Philadelphia. Dr. Wolfeld presented the cutting edge field of robotic hair transplants and shared his experiences with the robot, new and updated procedure protocols, and the latest improvements to the ARTAS® robotic system.

Dr. Wolfeld discussed several advances with the ARTAS robot that were studied and first implemented at Bernstein Medical. These include: automated graft selection, robotic recipient site creation, “pre-making” recipient sites, and the ability to customize the size of the punch instrument to best suit the patient’s hair characteristics. His presentation was well received by the audience of aesthetic physicians, and it generated many thoughtful questions and interesting discussions about the robot, the latest updates to the robotic procedure, and the future of robotic hair restoration surgery. Dr. Wolfeld is nationally published on various topics in aesthetic surgery and lectures on new advances in hair restoration.

Bernstein Medical is a beta-test site for improvements to the robot and was one of the first facilities in the world to incorporate robotic FUE procedures into the practice. Dr. Robert Bernstein, founder of Bernstein Medical and a pioneer of modern surgical hair restoration, is a medical advisor to Restoration Robotics, Inc., the company that developed the robot. Drs.
