This seems to be a positive idea on how expedite the whole surgical process. This necessarily would not mean better results. Surgical procedures take time for a reason and it is because surgeons must posses insight to deliver a positive result. I would suspect that the technology used in such a project would not be affordable to the general public. Hair multiplication some years away as is agency approval of these robots. Once again, quantity shouldn’t replace quality. The idea of using the robots sounds like the focus is on speed and not the needs of specific patients. I will hope that there is positive outcome to benefit the HT industry in some fashion but naturalness can’t be sacrified.
