Placement of Tensioner in Robotic FUE

Dr. Bernstein demonstrates how he places the tensioner on the patient in a robotic hair transplant procedure. The tensioner is a plastic picture frame-like device that adds tension to the patient’s scalp allowing for improved harvesting. It also has little dots, called fiducials, on its outer border which the robot “reads” for proper orientation. The robot scans the edges of the tensioner, reads the dots, and uses them to orient the robotic arm and punch tool.

Bald Truth Interview: How The ARTAS Robot Brings Clinic Transparency to FUE

Dr. Bernstein and Spencer Kobren, of The Bald Truth, talk about another seldom-discussed advantage of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System, namely how the robot brings transparency to FUE hair transplant procedures. The robot accumulates data on each action taken for the operating physician and also sends the information to Restoration Robotics for analysis. While the data helps Restoration Robotics improve each successive iteration of the robot, it also adds an extra layer of validity to clinics’ claims about procedures performed at their facility. This is in contrast to manual FUE where there is no third party monitoring or validation.

How is the ARTAS Robot Used During a Hair Transplant Procedure?

The follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure consists of four steps: the separation of follicular units from the surrounding tissue, the removal of follicular units from the scalp, the creation of recipient sites, and the placement of follicular units into these sites. The first step is performed by the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system – the part of the FUE procedure requiring the greatest precision and that is most subject to human error.

How Is Robotic FUE Different At Bernstein Medical?

Q: How is robotic FUE different at Bernstein Medical compared to other practices?

A: The ARTAS robot assists in the first part of the follicular unit extraction procedure: separating the follicular unit from the surrounding tissue. The rest of the hair restoration procedure is done manually. Once follicular units are removed from the scalp they need to be trimmed prior to implantation, recipient sites need to be created, and the grafts must be placed in them – a time consuming, delicate process.

Because we are highly skilled in microscopic dissection, we are able to produce the highest quality grafts. In addition, all the other aspect of the procedure, including the long-term planning and design will be performed with the same high standards. With respect to the actual robot at Bernstein Medical, we use smaller instruments that result in less wounding to the scalp, it promotes faster healing time, and it improves the appearance of the donor area. We also have our computer programed to select the larger follicular units to obtain more hair with less wounds (holes) in the donor area – ultimately achieving a better cosmetic result.

Robotic Hair Transplant Part 1: Donor Area Preparation

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.
