Robotic Hair Transplant

August 14th, 2015

Dr. Wolfeld answers a common question about Robotic FUE hair transplant procedures. People often ask if the ARTAS® System can create recipient sites in such a way as to result in a natural-appearing hair transplant. Recipient sites are tiny holes that are made in the scalp where the surgeon places follicular unit grafts in surgical hair restoration.

Dr. Wolfeld: An added capability of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant system is the ability for the robot to create recipient sites. The way this is done is the physician programs the computer with the exact number of sites, the density, the orientation, and the direction. This is uploaded into the robotic system and the ARTAS robot is then able to create these sites at the exact parameters that are set by the surgeon. The robot is able to create the sites at a rate of approximately 2000 per hour and it is able to eliminate the inconsistencies that may be seen when the sites are created by hand. So, therefore, it can create very natural appearing recipient sites where the grafts can be placed.

The frontal hairline however is still created by hand, but the remainder of the sites where the grafts will be placed are created by the robot.
