Bay Area Hair Restoration Surgeon Participates in 19th Annual Scientific Meeting of ISHRS

Sara Wasserbauer, M.D. presented her research on using an image-guided robotic system to harvest follicular hair units.

 
PRLog - Sep. 26, 2011 - WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- - Bay Area hair restoration surgeon, Sara Wasserbauer, M.D., recently presented research on the effectiveness of using an image-guided robotic system to remove and implant hair grafts on the scalp at the 19th Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in Anchorage, Alaska.  

Dr. Wasserbauer recently completed a two-year study on the Restoration Robotics™ ARTAS System, an interactive, computer assisted technique utilizing image-guided robotics to enhance the quality of hair follicle harvesting. Operated under the direction of a physician, ARTAS has the potential to solve most of the technical challenges inherent in the manual follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques.

During the two-year study, Dr. Wasserbauer collected data on the effectiveness of the ARTAS technology by itself and compared to manual hair transplantation techniques.  Dr. Wasserbauer then went on to examine the rate of hair growth in patients nine months after having their ARTAS System hair transplant and found that the hair grows back at the same rate as hair that is manually harvested.  However, healing time is reduced using the robotic system and the minimally invasive surgery leaves only tiny scars – less than a millimeter in diameter where each graft was taken.

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) is the world’s leading medical authority on hair loss and hair restoration.  More than 500 physicians and surgical assistants from around the world learned about the latest technological and scientific advances in treating hair loss at the 19th Annual Meeting held from September 14 – 18, 2011.
