Dr. Bernardino Arocha to Use Robotics to Transform Hair Restoration
Minimally Invasive ARTAS™Restoration System gives patients fast recovery with little scarring
HOUSTON, February 6. 2013– Houston Hair Restoration expert, Dr. Bernardino Arocha of Arocha Hair Restoration (www.arochahairrestoration.com), will introduce minimally invasive robotic hair restoration to patients wishing for a shorter recovery and no visible scarring in addition to the natural, undetectable results Dr. Arocha is already known for. Arocha Hair Restoration will be the first to receive and begin using the ARTAS Robotic System for hair restoration.
Dr. Arocha is a Diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and has performed more than 3,000 hair transplant surgeries, transplanting an estimated total of approximately 9 million follicles. He serves as a physician examiner for the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. Arocha Hair Restoration exclusively performs medical and surgical hair restoration procedures, focusing on ultra-refined follicular unit hair transplantation.
The ARTAS Robotic System uses sophisticated imaging technology and precision robotics to locate and collect individual follicular units accurately and consistently, thousands of times in a single session. ARTAS is used on the back of the patient’s scalp where hair follicles are dihydrotestosterone (DHT)-resistant and not susceptible to genetic hair loss when transplanted to the top of the scalp.
“The combination of a highly experienced and skilled surgeon with the advanced robotic ARTAS technology means patients recover significantly faster due to the minimally invasive procedure,” said Dr. Arocha. “With the ARTAS technology, computer algorithms help us achieve a higher level of precision less likely to damage the graft and more likely to preserve its protective tissues. This increases the probability that the grafts will survive the transplant process, which contributes to better patient results.”
Over 35 million men are affected by male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) in the United States alone. Approximately two-thirds of American men will experience appreciable hair loss by age 35; by age 50, 85 percent will see significant loss in hair thickness. Genetic hair loss, which typically begins between late adolescence and before or during middle age, is largely untreatable outside of surgery.
In addition to offering The ARTAS System, Arocha Hair Restoration will continue to offer the traditional method of harvesting follicles by removing a strip of scalp and methodically extracting the follicles with the help of a microscope for patient who prefer that option. Dr. Arocha and his experienced team regularly provide surgeries exceeding 3,000 follicular unit grafts per session, with their largest session to date being 6,000 grafts.
