Anderson Center for Hair is the leading hair restoration practice and hair surgery center in Atlanta

Dr. Ken Anderson of Anderson Center for Hair has set a new world efficiency record with the ARTAS robot.

Founder and Director of the Anderson Center for Hair Dr. Ken Anderson, hair transplant surgeon in Atlanta, GA, is proud to announce that he set a new world record for ARTAS efficiency on June 22, 2016, with 1,239 graft harvests completed in exactly one hour. The world record, which surpassed the previous record set at 1,052 grafts harvested by Dr. Gregory Turowski from Chicago, IL, was confirmed by Dr. Gabe Zingaretti, Chief Operations Officer of Restoration Robotics, Inc.

The ARTAS Robotic System is a state-of-the-art, surgeon-controlled tool that Dr. Anderson uses to perform efficient, precise follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedures with unparalleled accuracy. This method of hair restoration allows Dr. Anderson to remove the hair for transplantation from the donor area without using a scalpel, or creating any linear scarring. Having practiced hair restoration surgery exclusively since 2004 and with the ARTAS System since 2013, Dr. Anderson has pushed Anderson Center for Hair to the forefront of the world’s best hair restoration facilities with his new world record.

Dr. Anderson says about his achievement, “It isn’t about setting records at all. It’s about achieving objective efficiency with a very complex tool. The ARTAS system is not like a car wash where you just stick a patient in and *presto* out come the grafts and there you go. It’s simply a tool. Like a paintbrush. No tool can guarantee good or even acceptable results, no more than any given paintbrush is going to result in the most beautiful paintings. It’s the skill, talent, dedication and experience of the person using the tool.”

Humbled by his practice’s accomplishments, Dr. Anderson also credits the skills and experience of his entire surgical team for being able to provide optimal results with unprecedented efficiency. After setting the new world record, the world-renowned team at Anderson Center for Hair remains dedicated to providing natural, long-lasting results and never compromising quality for efficiency.
