Dr. Bernstein spoke with Bloomberg’s Matt Miller about the future of hair transplantation in a segment called, “The Bald Economy: Surgical Solutions to Hair Loss.”
Here is an excerpt from the segment:
Bloomberg’s Matt Miller: Riding the wave into the future happens to be one of the pioneers of FUE, Dr. Robert Bernstein.
Dr. Bernstein: “The robot now allows a mechanized system to do [follicular unit extraction] very, very quickly and very consistently, so that the human error in this part of the procedure is now gone.”
Matt Miller: That’s right, a robot. Dr. Bernstein is piloting a high-tech solution called ARTAS.
Dr. Bernstein: “What it is very precise at doing is getting around the follicular unit to separate it from the tissue.”
Matt Miller: The procedure, which costs twice as much as the standard surgery, has one clear advantage.
Dr. Bernstein: “The difference is, in the back, in the area where we take the hair, there will be little tiny dots that just fade into the scalp.”
