Robotic Hair Transplant
The Rise of ARTASRobotic Hair Transplant - The past few years, hair transplantation has grown by leaps and bounds. There are so many different types of hair transplant procedures. The talk about hair transplant in Turkey would remain incomplete without ARTAS! This is a robotic hair transplant procedure. ARTAS was designed to speed-up the entire process. It was meant to assist Follicular Unit Extraction routines. Indeed, ARTAS started with a big goal and lots of technological advancements. But, was it successful? Did doctors come across robotic hair transplant flaws? Did patients see long-term results? Did ARTAS introduce side effects?
The Need for HelpAccording to a recent study, more than 35 million patients opt for hair transplants every year in the United States. The need for FUE procedures has increased by 40% in recent times. Unfortunately, very few physicians are able to perform successful FUE transplants. They experienced fatigue and were likely to make errors. After all, hair transplant is a lengthy process that spans between 4 and 8 hours. To support FUE procedures, doctors introduced the ARTAS. Scientists believed that ARTAS would help doctors handle the growing need for hair transplant/restoration.
Benefits of Robots in Hair TransplantThere were many reasons to use ARTAS.
- The robot was designed with algorithms that can analyze and identify hair grafts quickly. It uses factors like density, direction, angle, distribution and orientation to choose hair grafts.
- The robot has powerful algorithms to categorize grafts. Hair follicle grafts can be categorized to a level of consistency, precision and efficiency.
- With the help of ARTAS, doctors are less likely to make mistakes. Surgeons can focus on artistry as the robot takes care of the technical stuff!
