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.
Dr. Bernstein demonstrates how he harvests follicular units below the occipital protuberance in the donor area on the back of the scalp using Robotic FUE techniques and describes how he positions the patient enabling the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System to harvest from the lower portion of the donor area.
Dr. Bernstein appeared as a guest on The Bald Truth, where he was interviewed by Spencer Kobren, the show’s host, about the ARTAS® Robotic System for FUE hair transplant surgery and the latest updates to the robotic system. He also discussed increasing demand for both FUE procedures and hair transplants, in general, around the world.
In Part 3 of our video series on Robotic FUE hair transplants, Dr. Bernstein narrates as he and his team first prepare the patient for graft harvesting and then conduct the follicular unit extraction process using the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System.
Dr. Bernstein and Restoration Robotics use the facility at Bernstein Medical to demonstrate recipient site creation with the ARTAS System.
In Part 2 of our video series on Robotic FUE hair transplantation, Dr. Bernstein describes the manual recipient site creation process in detail. Included is an explanation why, in FUE procedures, recipient sites are created before the follicular unit grafts are extracted from the donor area.
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 answers a question about whether or not Robotic FUE procedures increase the number of hair transplant candidates.
Dr. Bernstein answers a question about Robotic FUE hair transplants in women and whether or not the procedure can benefit women as much as it does men.
