If you are considering a San Francisco robotic hair transplant your best bet is to get on the road down to Foster City. This is where you will find the office of Silicon Valley Hair Institute which is headed by Dr Miguel Canales. If the name means nothing to you because you don’t know anything much about hair transplantation that is quite understandable, but in the “trade”, so to speak, Dr Canales is known throughout the world as one of the top, if not the very top, hair transplant surgeons.
For over ten years Dr Canales was Medical Director of a company called Restoration Robotics Inc., where he led the team that created the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System, and he has trained hair transplant surgeons around the world in its’ use. His name is on more than 11 critical patents that are the basis for robotic hair transplantation, so you simply cannot find a better hair transplant surgeon anywhere. Dr Canales has also spoken at many conventions around the world about hair transplantation, the latest being the ARTAS Users Meeting at Coronado in February.
Dr Canales’ office in Foster City serves patients from the whole of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, including patients seeking a San Francisco robotic hair transplant.
There are many benefits of using the ARTAS robotic system, not the least of which is that it leaves no detectable scarring in the donor area of the scalp. The survival rate of harvested follicular units is greater than manual transplantation, which eliminates any possible human error as a result of fatigue or hand/eye co-ordination. The ARTAS system also makes it easier to harvest follicular units in patients from different racial backgrounds – for example patients of African descent who have curly hair. In addition, the robot can precisely recreate the angle, elevation, and direction of any existing hair in the recipient site.
Another very important point concerns recovery time. Because the ARTAS system does not leave a visible linear scar that the patient would get with manual strip surgery it enables the hair too be worn shorter if desired, and it is also possible to return to strenuous physical activity after only one or two days. For the same reason, the patient can go straight back to work, rather than taking time off for recovery.
If you are considering a San Francisco robotic hair transplant you will be pleased to know that Dr Canales offers a completely free consult to all patients when he can assess your suitability for the procedure and answer all your questions.
