The ARTAS® Procedure vs. Strip Surgery


State of the Art –

Minimally Invasive ARTAS® Robotic Procedure

Older Technique –

Invasive Strip Surgery


Each hair is targeted individually with robotic precision. No stitches are needed. A strip of scalp is removed from the back of the head. Stitches are used to close the wound.


Tylenol® (Acetaminophen) if needed immediately post-procedure Many patients require prescription pain medication immediately following the procedure.

Post-op long term side effects may include possible nerve injury in the donor area followed by abnormal traction or healing of the nerve*

Side effects often include:

  • Numbness and tingling
  • Scalp tightness
  • Lingering pain
