In Part 1 of our three-video series on Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) at Bernstein Medical, Dr. Bernstein walks us through the preparation of the patient’s donor area in advance of a Robotic FUE procedure. This includes shaving the hair in the donor area to 1-mm in length and administering anesthetic for the patient’s comfort during the robotic hair transplant procedure.
Dr. Bernstein explains why transplanted hair will grow in an area of balding on the scalp.
Dr. Bernstein appeared in a segment covering the topic of robotic hair transplantation, on the popular medical talk show “The Doctors” on CBS. He spoke about the labor-intensive task of manual methods of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and how the ARTAS Robotic System for FUE improves on these methods in its ability to maintain precision throughout a procedure that requires thousands of repetitive motions.
Dr. Bernstein was featured in a CBS News report on robotic hair transplantation. In the segment, they discuss the difference between FUT and FUE hair transplants, how the robotic system works, and the benefits of extracting hair follicles using robotic FUE.
The Oprah Winfrey Show featured Dr. Bernstein and the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) surgical procedure that he pioneered. In the segment, Dr. Bernstein, Oprah Winfrey, and Dr. Mehmet Oz discuss FUT, the donor area, the patient’s comfort during the procedure, hair loss evaluation with a densitometer, and, of course, the patient’s incredibly natural results. This episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show originally aired October 7th, 2008 on ABC.
