The majority of people in the Bay Area don’t actually realize that San Jose is bigger than San Francisco, but it is. The population of San Francisco is around 840,000, while in San Jose it is just about the 1 million mark.
So far, so good. We hope you are impressed if you are a San Jose resident. Or for that matter, even if you live in San Francisco!
However, if you are considering a San Jose hair transplant don’t stay in San Jose. Don’t go looking in San Francisco either, because the world class hair transplant clinic in the Bay Area is not in either of those cities, but is just a few minutes’ drive up Highway 101 in Foster City.
Here is where you will find Silicon Valley Hair Institute whose Director and Head Surgeon is Dr Miguel Canales. Dr Canales is renowned not just in the Bay Area, but in the whole of the world as one of the leading hair transplant surgeons of our time. For ten years he was Medical Director of Restoration Robotics Inc., and led the development of the technique of hair restoration using a robot. It is very clever stuff indeed.
Who would think that a robot would be better at transplanting hair from a healthy part of the head to a bald patch where it would regrow in the same way as the original hair? Nonetheless it is true. In a similar way that our cars are now built by robots on a production line, a robot can now produce a better San Jose hair transplant than a human can – no matter how skilled the human – and we emphasize that Dr Canales is as skilled as it is possible to be. (It should be noted, however, that Dr. Canales will consult with you on your hair transplantation options; in many cases, the older ‘strip’ or ‘Follicular Unit Transplantation‘ method may actually be a better choice. Every hair loss patient is unique, and Dr. Canales will create a customized hair restoration plan for you and your needs).
However, even he says that the ARTAS Robotic System that he developed is even more precise than any human because it works much faster and does not have any potential eye/hand co-ordination problems that naturally occur in a human being when he or she begins to tire – no matter how dedicated that surgeon may be.
Furthermore, using the ARTAS Robotic System ensures that there is no scarring left on the back of the head from the donor site, which can happen when using standard FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) procedures.
So if you are considering a San Jose hair transplant come to Dr Canales’ office in Foster City. You may very well meet patients who have come from San Francisco at the same time because they also want nothing but the best hair transplantation system in the Bay Area.
