Master Class Series for the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System

Restoration Robotics Launches New Continuing Education Master Class Series for the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration System

First class in new continuing education series led by the prominent aesthetic surgeon, Robert M. Bernstein, MD in New York, NY

Additional Master Classes in the series to be led by experienced faculty

Restoration Robotics, Inc, a global leader in robotic hair restoration, today announced the launch of a continuing education Master Class Series for its ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration System to train physicians on best practices and the most up-to-date techniques for this cutting-edge technology.

The Master Class Series will enable them to provide exceptional results to male aesthetic patients. The ARTAS Hair Transplant System is the first and only robotic system in the world designed to aid surgeons in hair restoration procedures.

The first Master Class was led by Robert M. Bernstein, MD, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University and founder of Bernstein Medical Center for Hair Restoration, a state-of-the-art hair transplant facility in New York, NY. Dr. Bernstein is a pioneer in modern hair transplantation and leads a beta-test center for Restoration Robotics.

Dr. Bernstein was selected to lead the Master Class because of his innovative work in the field of hair restoration and his contributions in the development of the ARTAS Robotic System. The Master Class included a live demonstration, hands-on training and reviewed multiple topics, such as technical aspects of robotic surgery, overcoming challenges of hairline design, donor and recipient site planning.

Ryan Rhodes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Restoration Robotics, said, “We designed this Master Class Series to support and advance our aesthetic physicians’ knowledge in utilizing the ARTAS Robotic System and improving the patient experience.

We received very positive feedback from all attendees following the first Master Class led by Dr. Bernstein. Restoration Robotics is committed to the continued investment in education and we plan to offer additional Masters Classes. Ultimately, the series will assist physicians to provide exceptional results to their male aesthetic patients.”

a world leader in Hair Transplant technology, Hair Restoration surgery and Hair Transplant clinical research as well as inventing ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant technologies

Dr. Bernstein commented, “It has been a privilege to lead and develop the first Master Class on Robotic Hair Transplantation with Restoration Robotics. Through the in-depth training, we provided new ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration surgeons with the technical knowledge and hands-on experience to improve their skills using the ARTAS Robotic System.

I look forward to continued educational opportunities with Restoration Robotics to provide aesthetics surgeons with the opportunity to improve and continue benefitting our patients.”

Restoration Robotics to Highlight ARTAS

Major Upgrade to Artas Robotic Hair Transplant System

ARTAS 9x, a major upgrade to the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System is introduced at Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration. Drs. Bernstein and Wolfeld publish a description of modifications and their benefits in the journal Hair Transplant Forum International.

Robert M. Bernstein, MD and Michael B. Wolfeld, MD of Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration have introduced ARTAS 9x, a major upgrade of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System.

Bernstein Medical became the first practice to perform surgery using the ARTAS Robotic System 9x. A corresponding article describing the latest modifications to the ARTAS robot was published in the industry journal Hair Transplant Forum International.

The ARTAS 9x system enables faster and more precise robotic hair transplant procedures.

Some of the benefits of the updated ARTAS system include greater range-of-motion of the robotic arm, newly designed needles for more accurate harvesting, improved optical system, simplified site making, smaller donor wounds, automatic scar detection, and a greater overall speed.

“The latest improvements extend the already substantial capabilities of the ARTAS Robot with improved accuracy, quicker donor healing, and a faster overall procedure.” ~ Dr. Michael B. Wolfeld

The article, published in the May/June issue of Hair Transplant Forum International, describes technical modifications to the robot and their benefits.

The article is titled, “What’s New in Robotic Hair Transplantation.”

ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System

The ARTAS Robot is a physician-assisted suite of hardware and software components, developed by Restoration Robotics, Inc., which automates key aspects of a surgical hair restoration procedure.

Using its three-dimensional optical system, the ARTAS System guides its robotic arm and surgical tools with microscopic precision.

By automating follicular unit graft harvesting and recipient site creation, the robot minimizes human error in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants and allows for the maximum preservation of hair follicles in the transplant.

About Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration

Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration, founded by Dr. Bernstein in 2005, is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss in men and women using the most advanced technologies.

In 2011 it became one of the first worldwide to use the image-guided, computer-driven technology of the ARTAS Robotic System in clinical practice. Bernstein Medical is a beta-testing site for the study of new product features and enhancements in the robot.

The state-of–the-art facility is located in midtown Manhattan, New York City where Dr. Robert M. Bernstein and Dr. Michael B. Wolfeld treat patients from around the globe. The board-certified physicians and highly trained clinical staff at Bernstein Medical take pride in providing the highest level of care for hair loss patients.
