Robotic Hair Transplant

February 24th, 2012


In this clip, Dr. Bernstein discusses the ARTAS system for robotic hair transplantation and describes why having a computer-driven, image-guided robot is so helpful for hair transplantation.

Here is a partial transcript:

A new robot could help return hair to those of us who, as we get older, find ourselves a bit follically challenged. Called the ARTAS System from Restoration Robotics, it was recently approved by the FDA to help with a type of hair transplantation technique called follicular unit transplantation where follicular units, groups of one to four hairs, are removed directly from the back of the head and transplanted on the top and front. Removing those units has always proved to be the toughest part of this method, but the robot changes that, which is why even Dr. Robert Bernstein – the man who’s widely credited with developing follicular unit transplantation and [follicular unit extraction] – jumped to be among the first in the U.S. to use the device.
