Dr. Williams- The Physicians' Hair Surgeon

Dr. Williams actively participates at numerous hair restoration workshops worldwide and in the United States as an instructor and teacher of the FUE donor harvesting procedure.

Physicians and surgeons instinctively understand from their residency and postgraduate medical training the best hair surgeon is the one who teaches FUE to other hair restoration physicians. Dr. Williams is one a handful of FUE surgeons who use the ARTAS robotic device who actually started FUE donors harvesting with hand held devices. He maintains his donor harvesting skill sets and hand eye coordination by personally harvesting grafts  with his PCID FUE device created by Dr. John Cole.  When the ARTAS® can't complete your hair surgery because of the steep exit angles of the hair follicle, you can be assured your hair surgery will be completed by Dr. Williams  the old fashion way.

The ARTAS® is a technologically advanced robotic device but the human touch and physician over sight remains necessary. Dr. Williams believes the ARTAS devices requires the presence of a surgeon at all times during donor harvesting. He personally is present for every harvest attempt by the ARTAS.  He  attends to his patients by completing the donor harvesting portion of the procedure with the hand held FUE devices for a better cosmetic outcome.

The Hair Restoration Process

The Robotic hair restoration procedure involves the ARTAS® system removing hair follicles from the patient’s donor harvesting region, or in common terms the back area of the scalp. This area on the scalp typically contains stabile hair follicles that are removed and transplanted to the balding areas of the scalp. This region of the scalp is anesthetized with local anesthesia to provide an absolute pain free experience. The ARTAS® uses sophisticated image processing and control algorithms that assists physicians in recognizing and harvesting targeted follicular units. The follicular units are extracted, then implanted back into the balding areas of the scalp producing a natural appearing hairline.

The most important aspect to hair restoration surgery still remains physician experience and oversight of your hair restoration experience. At the Irvine Institute of Medicine Robotic Hair Restoration Center you can be assured the personal touch, human element and physical presence and has not been replaced. We remain dedicated to your hair restoration experience and promise that you have awesome experience and outstanding cosmetic results.
