CRAIG ZIERING, DO, DEMONSTRATES REVOLUTIONARY ROBOTIC SURGERY DURING THE ORLANDO LIVE SURGERY WORKSHOP Presenting ARTAS Hair Studio™
San Jose, CA – April 9, 2014 – Restoration Robotics, Inc., the global leader in robotic hair transplantation, will have Craig Ziering, DO, present ARTAS Hair Studio™ and the ARTAS® Robotic System during the Platinum Orlando Live Surgery Workshop taking place April 9 through 12 in Orlando, FL.
The Future Is Here: ARTAS Hair Studio™
Dr. Ziering’s Beverly Hills practice is one of three Beta testing sites for ARTAS Hair Studio. During the workshop, he will demonstrate ARTAS Hair Studio, a new interactive tool designed to enhance the patient consultation experience and help design an individualized, personalized simulated outcome for the patient. In addition, the software generates a realistic 3D patient model on a touchscreen tablet that allows a physician to customize a recipient site pattern design – changing hairlines, interior densities and growth directions with a result viewable from every angle.
Successful procedures start by helping each patient feel confident with his end result. With ARTAS Hair Studio on hand, Dr. Ziering will show how patients can view and provide input through the consultation process. This interactive tool heightens each patient’s engagement level while transforming the consultation. It also improves patient education around hair loss and available options.
Historically, one of the hurdles in hair restoration is realistically illustrating the outcome the patient may achieve with a certain number of grafts. Until ARTAS Hair Studio, patients had to imagine future results versus being able to visualize the potential outcome on their own personal photographic images. Now, patients can actually see the impact of 1,000 grafts as opposed to 2,000 grafts.
With ARTAS Hair Studio, physicians can look at the patient’s head and decide how many grafts they recommend for the most attractive aesthetic outcome, evaluate different placement options for the grafts, and be able to show the patient what they may look like after their transplanted hair grows in. The simulated recipient pattern design can be saved and transferred easily to the ARTAS Robotic System with a touch of button and used during the scheduled procedure.
ARTAS Robotic System
The ARTAS Robotic System was created after nearly a decade of research and remains at the forefront of the latest advancements in minimally invasive hair transplantation. It is the first and only FDA-cleared computer-assisted, physician-controlled robotic hair transplant technology.
The ARTAS Robotic Procedure offers innovative technology with three key benefits: precision, control, and reproducibility. The ARTAS Robotic System dissects follicular units accurately and consistently, hundreds to thousands of times in a single session*.
“The ARTAS Robotic System empowers doctors to achieve a level of expertise that would typically require years of practice with manual follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques,” states Dr. Ziering. “We will use our time at Orlando Live Surgery Workshop to showcase this technology and to reveal outcomes.”
The ARTAS Robotic Procedure provides superior visual access to the hair follicles, letting physicians quickly and efficiently harvest individual follicular units. The ARTAS Robotic System displays the patient’s scalp magnified on a 55” screen so the surgeon can evaluate the field. Picturing the surface in three dimensions, the ARTAS Robotic System uses programmed algorithms to select and remove the most robust follicles. Only the necessary amount of the best donor hair is harvested, physicians can adjust settings without interrupting the procedure, and the robot is able to compensate for patient movement. The ARTAS Robotic Procedure has been a real advantage for patients who wear their hair short where a visible linear scar in the donor area would have previously been an aesthetic concern and for patients who prefer not to have sutures following surgery.
- Conchita Wurst Beard Transplants
Beard Transplants To Create Facial Hair Worthy Of Conchita Wurst Are On the IncreaseIn the same manner that women flocked to hair salons asking for ‘the Rachel’ during the Friends heyday, will men be asking their beard surgeons for a Conchita Wurst? (You have to admit, as beards go, it’s pretty immaculate).Maybe not, but in any case, the number of men unable to grow even, lush face fuzz have decided to opt for a transplant. In fact it’s becoming so popular, that hair transplant surgeon Edward Ball says numbers have doubled.
Beard transplants are an extremely tricky surgery as each hair has to be placed with utmost care. Dr Ball advises that the best hair is taken from underneath the chin so that scarring is almost invisible.
Jamie Binns, a patient in the video, says that if he can afford it, he doesn’t see why he can’t make his beard look sharper.
Still, it’s not a procedure to take lightly. Costing around £4,000, surgery can take up to eight hours. Hairs are then planted into the face through tiny incisions on the bare skin. If the man is balding, hair can also be taken from the chest.
“Once implanted into the face,” IBT Times writes, “the beard takes root. While the hair falls out, the root stays and begins to grow new hair after a few months.”

- The UKs First Hair Transplant By Robot
The IndependentPatrick Shaw, 38, is the first man in the UK and Europe to undergo a ‘hair transplant by robot’. The married father of two was born in Liverpool but now lives in Malaga, Spain. He came back to England for the procedure, which took place at a clinic in west London.As a young boy I had a full head of thick hair. Through my teenage years and into adulthood I wasn’t one for styling my hair into the latest trend or using products such as gel.It was only after I got married that I slowly started noticing a receding hairline. Please note, I consider my subsequent hair loss a coincidence! This was nine years ago and the receding hairline has been progressive and slowly going further and further back.I want to go back to the day I was born. Upon discovering my birth weight and being told I weighed 9.5lbs, my mother asked the midwife if “that was just my head”. Whilst I have never been obsessed or paranoid I am aware that my head has always been “larger than normal”.So why did this matter? I once had a very short haircut and I hated they way I looked. The short hair totally changed the shape of my face, making my head and face look even bigger. I also felt it made me look “hard”. I couldn’t wait for it to grow. I felt I was getting an insight into my appearance if I was to lose my hair. I didn’t like that idea and I was beginning to think about my options.I always hoped I would be one of the lucky guys who’d age with a full head of hair. I like having hair and my view is that if you had a choice of being bald or having hair, every person on the planet would choose to have hair. What you do with it when you have it is up to you, but at least you have the hair to make that choice!
Once I investigated what treatments were available it was just a matter of researching more and deciding which technique to go for. I was leaning towards the FUT until I was made aware of the Robot. My wife and I positively discussed the idea of having the FUE Robotic procedure. Having seen the results of patients who had successful FUE and FUT surgery I was excited to be going ahead with the most advanced, state-of-the-art hair transplant available.
After all, the worst that could happen was that I would have more hair than I had before and that will do for me. I arrived at the clinic feeling relaxed. I chatted to my surgeon, who completed the remaining medical check formalities and took some final “before” photos before showing me what could be expected in terms of results from my procedure.
I was given my necessary injections of local anaesthetic and my surgeon began the process of making the tiny incisions for the recipient sites. I was sat comfortably and was naturally asked by members of the team if I was okay. My instinctive response was to say that it was “easier than going to the dentist”. We all know what a trip to the dentist is like when we need some work doing. A quick check-up and clean is fine, however, anything more serious and your mouth is wide open while there needles are being poked in, drilling and air blowing in through a pipe. This was nothing of the sort, yet it is a surgical procedure.
My surgeon completed the incisions in a couple of hours whilst we listened to some background music and chatted socially. I was then introduced to the robot. “Pleased to meet you” I said and was duly shown to my seat. I was once again assisted by the medical team to ensure I was comfortable in the required position.
As with other parts of the procedure I seemed to find I was taking this in my stride. All I could feel was the gentle tapping sound against my head as the follicles were extracted. Again, no pain or discomfort. With my head down and eyes closed I took this opportunity to enjoy some quiet time!
Once I had been harvested to the max I was looking forward to the final stage of my procedure. I was starting to get excited at the prospect of having had incisions made in my scalp and then follicles of hair extracted from the back to start to feel them being placed into my new hairline. Enough of the taking, I thought to myself, now it’s time to put some back in!
So began the last leg of my journey. The treatment chair to begin the third and final part of this work of art. Precise, carefully made incisions, man and robot and now to the artistry of placing the grafts. I kind of knew the hard work (for me anyway) was over. Sit and watch a movie and in a few hours – I’ll be a new man.
We reached the end of the procedure, the end of a great day. Well looked after by all, watered and fed regularly. It’s hard to describe the emotion of the whole process. The build up and anticipation in the days and weeks leading up to the day right through to the day itself. I always wanted to enjoy it and I can say now that I did.
- Ziering First Practice To Complete Female ARTAS Procedure
Premier Hair Restoration Surgeon, Dr. Craig Ziering, First to Successfully Restore Woman’s Hairline with Revolutionary Robotic Treatment
Los Angeles, CA – Ziering Worldwide today announced the first use of the revolutionary ARTAS® System, performed by Dr. Craig Ziering, to complete a significant, 2382 robograft female hair transplant procedure. Dr. Ziering has been using the FDA cleared ARTAS System to successfully treat many of his male patients since the introduction of the robotic technology last year. The ARTAS System uses advanced imaging to enable micron level targeting and its robotic arm to precisely harvest healthy follicular units in this minimally invasive procedure for hair transplantation patients.
“My practice works exclusively in hair transplants and is recognized for its contributions to new innovations and studies in hair restoration. As an early adopter of the ARTAS procedure, I’m confident in the system’s advanced, highly sophisticated approach. I felt, along with my male patients, select female patients in need of hair restoration would benefit immensely from the systems advanced technology and precision robotics,” said Dr. Craig Ziering.
Mistakenly thought to be a strictly male condition, women actually make up forty percent of American hair loss sufferers. Hair loss in women can be absolutely devastating for the sufferer’s self-image and emotional well-being (American Hair Loss Association). The only permanent way to restore hair loss from androgenetic alopecia is through surgery.

- Robograft Arrives
Chic GeekForget RoboCop, Ziering, a leading medical practice specialising in hair restoration, introduces ‘Robograft’, the first and only robotic hair restoration procedure to the UK. The ARTAS System, or ‘Robograft’, is a new, physician controlled robotic technology which is set to revolutionise hair transplant surgery in the UK.This process of hair restoration entails a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure, which works by transplanting hair from healthy ‘donor’ areas one unit at a time into desired thinning or balding regions. To date, this procedure is done manually by a physician, but is a labour intensive process.The Robograft procedure from Ziering, while still overseen by a physician – offers greater precision, consistency and speed allowing more time for artistic input. Patients therefore benefit from human expertise, enhanced by technological innovation.Additional benefits of the ARTAS System include; Minimally invasive procedure with virtually no post-operative discomfort, no linear incision with a scalpel and no linear scarring, ability to wear hair at varying lengths without concern of a linear scar being visible to others and higher quality grafts which enhance transplant survival rates.With high profile figures such as Wayne Rooney recently benefiting from the FUE procedure, the taboos around hair loss have been challenged, resulting in increased demand for solutions among men and women in the UK. The introduction of the ARTAS System to the UK means that for the first time ever, people in the UK worrying about hair loss will have access to the latest technology and a permanent solution.Founder and Medical Director, Dr Craig L. Ziering, is an industry pioneer, teacher and author who remains in constant pursuit of seeking and developing new technology, surgical techniques and hair treatment solutions. He said of the launch, “I’m thrilled that Ziering is taking the lead in the field of Robotic Hair Restoration and is the first practice to bring the ARTAS system to Europe. By placing the robot in our London clinic, we are enabling the ARTAS robotic procedure to become a realistic solution for patients suffering with hair loss throughout the United Kingdom.
“My expert team of surgeons at our London clinic are excited about having this groundbreaking ARTAS technology, which provides the best surgical tools in the industry with which to perform procedures. It is an exciting time for our practice and our industry.
“Reported hair restoration procedures among celebrities and high profile individuals can often lead consumers to believe that treatment may be beyond their reach. However a full-range of hair-loss solutions, including surgery, consultation services, laser, medical and non- surgical options; are available for a range of prices at Ziering.”
From £5000 – but it depends on the number of grafts a patient has. Roughly it is £5 per graft and 1000 grafts is the norm.
TheChicGeek says “New technology like this that makes it less labour intensive for the surgeon, will result in the price for these operations coming down. Where once it was seen as unaffordable or for people on footballer’s salaries, the ‘Robograft’ and other technology like it, will make the procedure within reach of many more people. Hair transplants will be the new laser eye surgery, what this space”.
- The UKs First Robot Hair Transplant and Hair Loss Myths
Huffington PostIn the last week, the UK has just witnessed a significant breakthrough. One that could soon prompt an intriguing rash of conversations in various male bolt-holes across Britain. For example:-Have you seen Dave recently?- No-Well, he seems to be sporting a remarkably luxuriant bouffant.- Really? That is a surprise.- Yes it is, considering his head hasn’t been bothered by a comb since 1998.The event that has triggered this imaginary conversation is the occurrence of the UK’s first hair transplant – by robot. Yes, if I were one of the daleks, I would be getting a bit nervous because this piece of kit could be putting their status as Britain’s favourite automaton under threat.
One of the original pioneers of this technique is a chap called Dr Craig L. Ziering, originally from New York but now based in Beverley Hills. He has brought the $250,000 machine across the pond to a clinic in West London, and it was there that the watershed operation took place.
I must admit, at the moment my forehead is very much winning its 38 year long territorial battle with my hair. As well as making me consider the benefits of a little assistance, it also serves as a constant reminder of a follicle free ex-work colleague and the reason he gave for his predicament.
He blamed his mum.
She always seemed a strange target to me, but he was of the opinion that baldness comes from genes on the mother’s side. To be honest I have heard this theory many more times over the years but it turns out that this is rather unfair (the hair loss gene can be passed down from either parent) And it is not the only myth when it comes to hair loss.
Here are my 3 favourites:
1 – Hair loss is a result of high levels of testosterone
Fiction: Hair loss is caused by hair follicles from some parts of the head being more sensitive to dihydrotestosterone ( I like to call it DHT, as if we are close mates), as opposed to higher levels of testosterone.
2 – Wearing hats or wigs makes you go bald
Fiction: Your hair doesn’t actually need to breathe as hair follicles get their oxygen from the bloodstream . So wear a hat. What the hell, where three.
3- Hair loss can be cured by standing on your head
Fiction: You will just get a headache. And a reputation as a being a bit odd, as well as a bit bald.
