ARTAS iX™ Robotic Hair Restoration System Makes ISHRS Debut at 2018 World Congress

Restoration Robotics, Inc, the global leader in robotic hair restoration, announced that the new ARTAS iX™ Robotic System for Hair Transplants made its debut at the 2018 World Congress of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in Hollywood, Calif.

The ISHRS is a global non-profit medical association and the leading authority on hair loss treatment and restoration, with more than 1,200 members in 70 countries worldwide.

Highlighting its technological advancements, including compact size, user-friendly interface, and state of the art implantation functionality, Robert M. Bernstein, MD presented the ARTAS iX System to an audience of more than 550 physicians who specialize in hair restoration.

Dr. Bernstein offered step-by-step insight into the implantation process and explained the method of utilizing robotic-assisted technology for FUE procedures.

“This system has successfully automated three of the four aspects of hair transplant surgery,” Dr. Bernstein said. “One of the major advancements that set the ARTAS iX apart from its predecessors is its implantation process.

Surgeries are now less time-consuming and more precise.  This new mechanism further alleviates some of the more meticulous and variable aspects of the FUE surgery.”

“This year’s ISHRS World Congress, held in Hollywood, provided an ideal opportunity to engage our highest priority constituency – U.S. based physicians who focus specifically on hair restoration,” commented Ryan Rhodes, CEO of Restoration Robotics. “We believe that presentations such as this, which provide interested physicians with insight into benefits of using the ARTAS iX System from a clinical and practice perspective, are invaluable.”
