ARTAS System vs. Neograft?
When you look at the chart below, keep in mind that a great result depends largely upon the surgeon, his training, and the skilled people who support his surgical efforts. The ARTAS® robotic system is an invaluable, timesaving tool. The computer system provides your surgeon with 3-D images of your scalp. The images guide the staff to the best areas for harvesting hair follicles. Using the ARTAS® system provides your surgeon the time to precisely create your new, natural hairline.
Neograft is a device that uses a sharp punch to isolate grafts and a suction mechanism to extract them from the scalp. Both the sharp punch and suction are felt by many doctors to cause more injury to the follicles than the blunt dissection technique (used by the ARTAS robotic system for FUE). In addition, the Neograft is a hand-held device that, unlike the ARTAS, is not an image-guided robotic system and, therefore, lacks the precision of the latter technique.
