September 21, 2018 ROBOTIC ADVANCEMENT FOR MEDICAL TREATMENTSAs time progresses, so does the use of technology. This is especially true in the medical field. We have seen many robotic advances in this field, making for a procedure that is not only precise but also efficient.THE DaVINCI AND THE ARTAS ROBOTSMore and more hospitals and medical centers are using robotic technology to assist them in surgical procedures. For example, at the University of Illinois at Chicago, or more commonly known as UI Health, they perform laparoscopic surgeries with the use of the DaVinci Robot. The DaVinci Robot uses small incisions with the help of a small 3D high definition camera known as a laparoscope. Methods like this lessen recovery time, and results show less biological trauma. As a result, the use of the daVinci is becoming more frequent for general procedures, as well.Similarly, we use the ARTAS Hair Restoration Robot powered by 9X Technology to aid in our hair restoration procedures.Traditional methods of hair restoration involved the manual extraction of the follicular unit, or FUE. This entails having a hair surgeon manually removing the individual hair follicles by hand. This method is not only time consuming but not as precise or accurate due to the amount of grafts required. This often runs the risk of hair transection. Also, the risk of fatigue is also a prevalent issue.In contrast, the ARTAS utilizes a camera that seeks out good quality hair follicles. It then extracts them from the donor area to be placed in the recipient area. Just like the DaVinci, this robotic approach also reduces downtime and the quality of work is better and much more precise. The ARTAS Robot also ensures that the last follicle to be extracted is as good as the first. The use of platelet rich plasma also increases growth, helps with healing and improves overall coverage of hair.Robots are being used in more and more fields and the only aesthetic robot is the ARTAS robot. We have found that advancements in other medical fields have improved the quality of service to and for the patients. We embrace technology that improves the patient’s outcomes and safety.To Read More About The Artas Robot, Click Here.
