The Farjo Hair Institute has been named as the first company in the UK to receive official certification from Restoration Robotics as a ‘centre of excellence’ for the provision of ARTAS treatments.
The ARTAS treatment, a robotic hair transplant system from the US, automatically finds the best donor hairs to harvest for transplantation and enables precision, speed and reproducibility during surgery. According to Farjo, the procedure is minimally invasive and tackles some of the issues associated with manual handheld methods and eliminates the risk of scarring because no stiches are required.
Dr Bessam Farjo, founder of the Farjo Hair Institute, said, “Having used ARTAS for some time, it’s clear that it offers minimal pain and fantastic results for patients. We’re thrilled to have been recognised as a ‘centre of excellence’ for ARTAS and look forward to training many more physicians from across the world.”
Brent Nixon, international vice president of Restoration Robotics Inc that manufactures ARTAS said, “Dr Farjo was one of the first hair transplant surgeons in Europe to purchase an ARTAS system. Since then, he and his clinic have helped expose and train physicians from all over the world on the benefits and advancements of the ARTAS Robotic System. Dr Farjo is a true pioneer and supporter for advancing the medical field of hair restoration.”
The Farjo Hair Institute has clinics in London and Manchester and performs more than 400 operations each year.
