This medical technology allows doctors the ability to provide more precise and visually appealing hair transplants in about half the time of all other Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) techniques.
The ARTAS robot uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique where individual hairs are harvested from the donor region versus the more traditional strip procedure where a strip is harvested. Patients often prefer this FUE technique because the results are natural looking and it reduces the amount of scarring in the donor region allowing patients to wear their hair short. In the past, doctors using the FUE technique would extract individual hairs from the “donor area” by hand.
This is very difficult and time consuming, because they must take care not to transect the follicle, which disconnects it from the hair seed, leaving it unviable for transplant.
Due to the precise and repetitive nature of robotics, ARTAS is able to remove the guesswork and human error involved in FUE to create virtually scar-less hair transplants in a lot less time. Clinic Director Michael Ramsey explains, “ARTAS allows the surgeon precision not possible with any other FUE system.
The system maps out the hairs in the donor region, their hair angles and orientation and then extracts the hairs.This results in better results for patients seeking a FUE procedure.”
PAI Medical Group is one of only 34 facilities in the world to offer this advanced ARTAS technology, making Nashville a great place to come when suffering from hair loss problems. As Michael Ramsey says, “Our commitment is to continuously improve our practice as a full service hair restoration center to help as many people as possible struggling with hair loss.”
