Holt Hair Restoration Center Is First In Michigan To Perform Hair Restoration Straight From Silicon Valley

ARTAS® Robotic System by Restoration Robotics, Inc. Revolutionizes Hair Restoration

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Steven Paul Holt, MD, proudly announces that he has become the first physician in the state to offer the FDA Cleared ARTAS® Robotic Procedure by Restoration Robotics, Inc. at his private practice, the Holt Hair Restoration Center, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. From the heart of Silicon Valley – the core of innovation – this revolutionary system provides natural results like never before. In contrast to previously available hair transplant options, the ARTAS Robotic Procedure requires no stitches, leaves no visible linear scar and patients have virtually no downtime following the procedure.

In today's difficult job market, a new group of men are seeking transplants to restore a more youthful appearance while boosting confidence. These men realize the importance of looking healthy, strong and competitive. Until now, many felt uncomfortable with the idea of having hair transplants due to fear of a disfiguring linear scar, unnatural results, and social stigmas.

The physician-assisted ARTAS Robotic Procedure delivers speed, accuracy and reproducibility to help doctors achieve better outcomes. ARTAS uses advanced imaging and precision robotics to identify and select only the very best hairs for harvesting.

With the innovative ARTAS Robotic Procedure, the patient experience is straightforward; outcomes are more predictable, providing fuller, natural-looking hair while eliminating the drawbacks and side effects associated with other older techniques.

"ARTAS is by far the most effective method of follicular unit extraction that I've performed," states Dr. Holt. "The advanced technology carries the practice farther into the future, allowing me to remove individual follicles of hair in a more precise, minimally invasive manner. Patients love ARTAS because it does not involve any scalpel incisions or suturing, generating a more comfortable experience, resulting in a very natural, permanent outcome."

After rigorous testing and clinical trials, in 2011 the ARTAS® Robotic System earned 510(k) approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Following clinical studies conducted from 2006 to 2011 to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the system, it also received a Canadian Medical Device License, a CE Mark certificate for the European Union and KFDA (South Korean) clearance in 2012.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
