Craig Ziering, DO, Demonstrates Revolutionary Robotic Surgery During The Orlando Live Surgery Workshop

Presenting ARTAS Hair Studio™

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Restoration Robotics, Inc., the global leader in robotic hair transplantation, will have Craig Ziering, DO, present ARTAS Hair Studio™ and the ARTAS® Robotic System during the Platinum Orlando Live Surgery Workshop taking place April 9 through 12 in Orlando, FL.

The Future Is Here:  ARTAS Hair Studio™

Dr. Ziering's Beverly Hills practice is one of three Beta testing sites for ARTAS Hair Studio.  During the Live Surgery Workshop, he will demonstrate ARTAS Hair Studio, a new interactive tool designed to enhance the patient consultation experience and help design an individualized, personalized simulated outcome for the patient.  In addition, the software generates a realistic three-dimensional patient model on a touchscreen tablet that allows the physician to customize a recipient site pattern design – changing hairlines, hair distribution densities and growth directions providing results viewable from every angle.

Successful procedures and insuring patient satisfaction start by helping each patient feel confident with his potential aesthetic outcome, Dr. Ziering will use ARTAS Hair Studio to illustrate how patients can view and provide input on their treatment plan during the consultation process. This interactive tool heightens each patient's engagement level, improves physician/patient communication and transforms the consultation into a truly interactive experience. It also improves patient education around hair loss and available options.

Historically, one of the hurdles in hair restoration is realistically illustrating how a patient may look with varying numbers of grafts and different graft placement options. Until ARTAS Hair Studio, patients had to imagine their possible future end result versus being able to actually see the modeled outcome on their own personal photographic images. Now, patients can actually see the impact of 1,000 grafts as opposed to 2,000 grafts.

With ARTAS Hair Studio, physicians can look at the patient's head and decide how many grafts they recommend for the most attractive aesthetic outcome, evaluate different placement options for the grafts, and be able to show the patient what they may look like after their transplanted hair grows in. The simulated recipient pattern design can be saved and transferred easily to the ARTAS Robotic System with a touch of button and used during the actual ARTAS Robotic Procedure.

The ARTAS Robotic System

The ARTAS Robotic System was created after nearly a decade of research and remains at the forefront of the latest advancements in minimally invasive hair transplantation. It is the first and only FDA-cleared computer-assisted, physician-controlled robotic hair transplant technology.

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure offers innovative technology with three key benefits: precision, control, and reproducibility. The ARTAS Robotic System dissects follicular units accurately and consistently, hundreds to thousands of times in a single session*.

"The ARTAS Robotic System empowers doctors to achieve a level of expertise that would typically require years of practice with manual follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques," states Dr. Ziering.  "We will use our time at The Orlando Live Surgery Workshop to showcase this technology and to reveal outcomes."

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure provides superior visual access to the hair follicles, letting physicians efficiently harvest individual follicular units. The ARTAS Robotic System displays the patient's scalp magnified on a 55" screen so the surgeon can evaluate the field. Picturing the surface in three dimensions, the ARTAS Robotic System uses programmed algorithms to select and remove the most robust follicles. Only the necessary amount of the best donor hair is harvested, physicians can adjust settings without interrupting the procedure, and the robot is able to compensate for patient movement.  The ARTAS Robotic Procedure has been a real advantage for patients who wear their hair short where a visible linear scar in the donor area would have previously been an aesthetic concern and for patients who prefer not to have sutures following surgery.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments.
