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 at numerous training workshops. For this reason, more medical doctors and physicians come to our facility in Irvine, California to have their hair surgery performed because Dr. Williams is a teacher and instructor to physicians in training.

Physicians and surgeons instinctively understand from their residency and postgraduate medical training, that 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.

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 all of the critical- to- quality steps of hair restoration procedure. His artistic efforts leaves not only natural appearing hair lines and design, but importantly the donor region is aesthetically pleasing when your surgical procedure is completed. Dr. Williams carefully plans the donor harvesting management portion of the FUE procedure that leaves his patient’s donor scalp healthier for future FUE surgical procedures.

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.
