Robotic Hair Transplant(R-FUE)

Robotic hair transplant surgery is a significant advance in the technology of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure.

Information :

In Robotic FUE, the ARTAS® iX Robotic System automates three key steps in an FUE hair transplant; follicular unit graft harvesting , recipient site creation and direct hair implantation.

The automation of these three steps enables surgeons to perform FUE with unparalleled precision and consistency and allows for the maximum preservation of follicles.

Robotic hair transplants have the same advantages manual FUE procedures have over traditional hair transplants – no linear scar and no post-operative limitations on physical activity – but, in addition, the ARTAS robot eliminates risks of human error.

The robot’s optical three-dimensional guidance system and dual punch mechanism first locate then extract follicular units according to specifications programmed by the physician. They do so hundreds to thousands of times per session with consistency and accuracy impossible to duplicate with the human hand.
They also create recipient sites, where follicular unit grafts are placed, according to an aesthetic plan designed by the physician and programmed into the robot.
