Dr. Berman said, “As a board certified dermatological surgeon, I pride myself on providing my patients with the best possible aesthetic outcomes. I have been working with the Restoration Robotics research and development team since 2006, and the development of the new ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration System is a game changer when it comes to providing hair loss solutions to men suffering from androgenetic alopecia.  I believe the advances with the ARTAS iX System will take hair restoration to a new level, offering precise, and repeatable harvesting with simultaneous recipient sitemaking and implantation functionality in one compact platform, reducing the risk of potential human error.”

Ryan Rhodes, CEO of Restoration Robotics, commented, “We are excited to showcase this new technology to leaders in dermatologic surgery at the ASDS conference as an opportunity for them to broaden their practice to include hair restoration. The ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration System is the only robotic system in the world designed to aid surgeons in hair restoration procedures and offer the implantation functionality. We look forward to providing further detail on how ARTAS iX technology can support surgeons in meeting their patients' hair needs and providing patients with a minimally-invasive option for hair growth with limited recovery time.”
