By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Week -- -ThePlastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg proudly announces the availability of the FDA cleared ARTAS Robotic Procedure. As specialists in hair restoration and hair transplantation surgery, plastic surgeons Paul J. Talbot, MD, and Bill Reno, MD, are genuine trailblazers in their industry - making the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg the first practice in the state to offer the revolutionary ARTAS Robotic Procedure (see also Restoration Robotics, Inc.).

>From the heart of Silicon Valley - the core of innovation - this game changing technology provides natural results like never before. In contrast to previously available hair transplant options, the ARTAS Robotic Procedure requires no stitches, leaves no visible linear scar and patients have little to no downtime following the procedure.

In today's difficult job market, a new group of men are seeking transplants to restore a more youthful appearance while boosting their confidence. These men realize the importance of looking healthy, strong and competitive. Until now, many felt uncomfortable with the idea of having hair transplants due to fear of a disfiguring linear scar, unnatural results, and social stigmas.

"Our patients can't believe how painless and simple the whole process is," says Dr. Talbot. "Thanks to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, individuals are able to return to their normal activities the very next day."

The physician-assisted 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 straightforward; outcomes are more predictable, providing fuller, natural-looking hair while eliminating the drawbacks and side effects associated with other older techniques.

Dr. Reno details that ARTAS is beyond remarkable, "We now have the ability to offer a state-of-the-art procedure for permanent hair restoration in a convenient, comfortable setting."

After rigorous testing and clinical trials, in 2011 the ARTAS Robotic System earned 510(k) approval 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.
