Let me give you a surprise….THERE IS NO ROBOT FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT IN INDIA
what prompted me to write this article is when i saw a big ad in Indian news paper about ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT.I tried to find out then came to know that this is the same company which was advertising about some other technique last year.They closed the shop and came up with new name this year.Indians gets attracted by fancy names and fancy ads.where the world knows only two technique FUT and FUE Indian companies and clinic comes every month with new technique and names.With every new ad the hope raises in patients that something new has come up in the world for hair transplant.Patient are fleeced left right and center.
Lets know the truth about robotic hair transplant.
ARTAS system is one of the tool which has assisted surgeons in follicular extraction.I will call it a half robot as it can only help surgeon in extraction but rest of the procedure is dependent on surgeon skills.
There is a machine called NEOGRAFT which assists in graft extraction but its not a ROBOT.This machine was launched in India long time back as MEDIKAMET and then withdrawn.Later it came with the name of NEOGRAFT
So what are these so called Indian robots.They are motorized tools to be held in hand and which assists surgeon in graft extraction.None of these procedures can do 4000 grafts extraction in one go which experienced hands can do.
Patients should be aware of these kind of tricks.They can safeguard themselves only by doing due research before going to any clinic.Please do not fall prey of ads like UNLIMITED HAIR,ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT,some NEW TECHNOLOGY,PHOTO SHOPPED before and after photos,Cheap hair transplants etc.
LOOK FOR THE SURGEON,LOOK FOR THE SURGEON AND CLINIC EXPERIENCE,MEET THE SURGEON AFTER DUE RESEARCH,GET THE ENTIRE SURGERY DONE FROM THE SURGEON
ARTAS, NeoGraft- they are not a procedure, merely a tool used to obtain hair grafts that then need to be transplanted into the scalp properly by the surgeon and his team in order to achieve an aesthetic result.
