Neograft and ARTAS: Automated FUE

We are often asked if we use automated FUE machines such as ARTAS or Neograft. Though we have Neograft in our office, most of our FUE procedures are done with a hand held device. Dr. Behnam first performed FUE in 2008. Now FUE has become over 50% of our business. The greater demand has forced us to prioritize our work performing FUE. Dr. Sean has done so many by hand, he feels that to switch to an automated device would be a step backward.

Transection rate is the amount of grafts damaged by the doctor during the procedure and it is always a concern. Doing the procedure by hand, Dr. Behnam maintains a transection rate of 2% or lower. In addition, his method allows him to closely examine each graft prior to extraction. This allows him to pick and choose the healthiest grafts and the grafts that best suit the area to be filled.
Though we have nothing against the automated systems, we feel that for us, we can offer the best service and outcome if we continue to use the method that we have worked so hard to develop.
