Gregory A. Turowski, MD, PhD, FACS Is Recognized For Pioneering Work In Robotic Hair Restoration
CHICAGO, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Chicago plastic surgeon Gregory A. Turowski, MD, PhD, FACS, has been invited to be part of Harvard Medical School’s “I Am Harvard,” sharing his outcomes in the field of plastic surgery and advances in robotic hair restoration. The prestigious “I Am Harvard” program celebrates the achievements of Harvard Medical School alumni, highlighting the influence of their education on the future of health and medicine.
As the Medical Director of New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Turowski was an early adopter of the FDA cleared ARTAS(®) Robotic Hair Transplant, and one of the first physicians in the world to implement robotic hair transplantation technology into his private clinical practices across the Chicagoland area.
From the heart of Silicon Valley – the core of innovation – the revolutionary ARTAS Robotic System brings a new level of precision and accuracy to hair transplantation allowing the patient to feel confident they will have natural looking results. In contrast to previously available hair transplant options, the ARTAS Robotic Procedure requires no stitches, leaves no visible linear scar and patients have virtually no downtime.
“My residency in plastic surgery at Harvard Medical School’s affiliated hospitals truly changed and shaped the way in which I think about medicine,” said Dr. Turowski. “The program exposed me to the latest advances in technology and surgical techniques, and encouraged me to be on the forefront of the science of hair transplantation. ARTAS was the natural choice to propel our practice into the future of robotic hair restoration.”
In today’s difficult job market, a new group of men are seeking transplants to restore a more youthful appearance while boosting confidence. These men realize the importance of looking healthy and youthful to maximize their competitive edge. Until now, many men felt uncomfortable with the idea of hair transplants due to fear of a permanent linear scar, unnatural results, and social stigmas.
“Our hair restoration patients love ARTAS because the highly advanced technology delivers better outcomes with less discomfort and downtime,” said Dr. Turowski. “ARTAS eliminates the factor of human error from this repetitive procedure, making results more reliable and natural-looking.”
The physician-controlled ARTAS Robotic Procedure utilizes a robotic arm and advanced digital imaging to select the best individual hairs from the back of the patient’s head to transplant to the thinning area. The patient experience is more comfortable, results are more predictable, and ARTAS avoids the drawbacks and side effects associated with older techniques.
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. www.artashair.com.
