IRVINE, Calif., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hair loss specialist Ken L. Williams Jr., D.O., proudly announces the availability of the FDA-cleared ARTAS Robotic System at his private practice, the OC Hair Restoration Center, in Irvine, California. Widely respected as a leader in the field of hair restoration, Dr. Williams has practiced medicine in Orange County since 1986.

From the heart of Silicon Valley - the core of innovation - the ARTAS Robotic System is a game changing technology that provides natural results like never before. In contrast to previously available hair transplant options, ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant requires no stitches and leaves no visible linear scar. Patients typically experience little to no downtime following the procedure.

In today's competitive job market, more men are considering hair transplantation procedures to restore a more youthful appearance to help boost their confidence. Until now, many felt uncomfortable with the idea of hair transplant procedures due to fear of a disfiguring linear scar, unnatural results, and social stigmas.

According to Dr. Williams, the ARTAS Robotic Procedure is the latest and most advanced solution in the hair surgical marketplace. Dr. Williams says, "ARTAS allows us to achieve superior hair restoration using state-of-the-art technology that provides a highly natural result and pleasing aesthetic appearance."

The physician-controlled ARTAS Robotic Procedure delivers speed, accuracy and reproducibility to help doctors achieve better outcomes. ARTAS uses advanced imaging and precision robotics to identify and select only the very best hairs for harvesting.

With the innovative ARTAS Robotic Procedure, the patient experience is intuitive; outcomes have greater predictability, and provide fuller, permanently growing natural-looking hair while eliminating the drawbacks and side effects associated with other older techniques.

After rigorous testing and clinical trials, in 2011 the ARTAS Robotic System received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Following clinical studies conducted from 2006 to 2011 to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the system, it also received a Canadian Medical Device License, a CE Mark certificate for the European Union and KFDA (South Korean) clearance in 2012.

About OC Hair Restoration
OC Hair Restoration performs both Strip and FUE surgical hair restoration procedures. The surgical facility distinguishes itself from other offices by primarily focusing on FUE surgery. Hair restoration physician and surgeon, Dr. Ken L. Williams actively teaches the FUE donor harvesting technique to his professional colleagues and peers. Because of his active teaching duties at hair restoration conferences and workshops, many physicians recognize physicians instructors and teachers as the most desirable source for their hair surgery.

The ARTAS Robotic System
The ARTAS Robotic System was created after nearly a decade of research and remains at the forefront of the latest advancements in minimally invasive hair transplantation. It is the first and only FDA-cleared computer-assisted, physician-controlled robotic hair transplant technology.

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure offers innovative technology with three key benefits: precision, control, and reproducibility. The ARTAS Robotic System dissects individual follicular units accurately and consistently, hundreds to thousands of times in a single session*.

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure provides superior visual access to the hair follicles, letting physicians efficiently harvest individual follicular units. The ARTAS Robotic System utilizes high-resolution digital imaging, to select and remove the most robust follicles. Only the necessary amount of the best donor hair is harvested, physicians can adjust settings without interrupting the procedure, and the robot is able to compensate for patient movement. The ARTAS Robotic Procedure has been a real advantage for patients who wear their hair short where a visible linear scar in the donor area would have previously been an aesthetic concern and for patients who prefer not to have sutures following surgery.
