First ro­botic hair trans­plant tech­nol­ogy in Kuwait

Kuwait Times - - HEALTH & SCIENCE -

Dr Reemk­linic, an­nounced in a press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day the in­stal­la­tion of ARTAS - the first hair trans­plant Ro­botic Sys­tem in Kuwait. The ARTAS Ro­botic Sys­tem is the first and only FDA-cleared, physi­cian-con­trolled, com­puter-as­sisted tech­nol­ogy for hair trans­plan­ta­tion. Artas’ ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies pro­vide ac­cu­rate re­sults, en­abling pa­tients to view and ad­just the out­come prior to the pro­ce­dure. This tech­nol­ogy has elim­i­nated the draw­backs typ­i­cally as­so­ci­ated with tra­di­tional trans­plant meth­ods, open­ing the door for a new age of hair trans­plant pro­ce­dures.

This cut­ting edge tech­nol­ogy gives pa­tients the ex­act re­sult they are seek­ing. This is achieved us­ing an ad­vanced vir­tual hair stu­dio pro­gram, which en­ables pa­tients to view and ad­just the fi­nal out­come they want. Hair is trans­planted with­out stitches or no­tice­able scar­ring, and re­cov­ery time is fast, with most peo­ple re­turn­ing to work or other ac­tiv­i­ties im­me­di­ately af­ter the pro­ce­dure.

Artas’ su­pe­ri­or­ity is driven by its ac­cu­racy in se­lect­ing and har­vest­ing the health­i­est grafts, which is vi­tal for a suc­cess­ful hair trans­plant pro­ce­dure. Ad­vanced al­go­rithms are em­ployed to an­a­lyze each hair fol­li­cle, in or­der to se­lect the health­i­est grafts, in­creas­ing the chances of their re­growth. The robot’s flex­i­ble arm then starts to ac­cu­rately har­vest, tar­get­ing each fol­li­cle in its op­ti­mum an­gle, to en­sure har­vest­ing a healthy fol­li­cle, with the sur­round­ing tis­sue needed for re­growth in the re­cip­i­ent area.

Artas’ in­no­va­tive ap­proach to hair trans­plan­ta­tion starts dur­ing the con­sul­ta­tion stage. Us­ing pho­to­graphs of the pa­tient’s head, ARTAS Hair Stu­dio Tech­nol­ogy cre­ates a cus­tom­ized 3D model of the trans­plant de­sign, al­low­ing the pa­tient to see and ad­just the end re­sults be­fore­hand. Be­cause ev­ery pa­tient’s re­quire­ments are dif­fer­ent, ARTAS Hair Stu­dio Tech­nol­ogy en­ables the physi­cian to show the pa­tient the fi­nal out­come, in­clud­ing num­ber of hair grafts re­quired, di­rec­tion of the im­plant­ing fi­nal hair style, en­abling the physi­cian to achieve the re­sults the pa­tient wants, elim­i­nat­ing any guess­work.

Artas’s ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies of­fer pa­tients an un­preceded ac­cu­racy in de­sign­ing and im­ple­ment­ing the de­sired re­sult. A vir­tual hair stu­dio that shows the pa­tient the end re­sult, a dig­i­tized har­vest­ing as per the ap­proved de­sign, a ro­botic site cre­ation, all com­bine to pro­duce an ac­cu­rate re­sult that is iden­ti­cal to the vir­tual pic­tures shown to the pa­tient. Us­ing high-res­o­lu­tion dig­i­tal imag­ing, the ARTAS Ro­botic Sys­tem ex­tends physi­cian ca­pa­bil­ity, re­mov­ing the po­ten­tial for hu­man er­ror at­trib­ut­able to fa­tigue. The physi­cianas­sisted tech­nol­ogy uses state-of-the art im­age guid­ance and in­tel­li­gent al­go­rithms to op­ti­mize in­di­vid­ual fol­lic­u­lar unit har­vest­ing, re­sult­ing in pre­cise pro­ce­dures and con­sis­tent re­sults. Physi­cians can har­vest thou­sands of fol­lic­u­lar units from the sur­round­ing needed tis­sues in a sin­gle ses­sion, per­form­ing the pro­ce­dure with uni­formed re­sults. The ARTAS Ro­botic Sys­tem has reached the 30 mil­lion fol­li­cle mile­stone all over the world.
