Additional Master Classes in the series to be led by experienced faculty

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Restoration Robotics, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAIR), the global leader in robotic hair restoration, today announced the third class in its continuing education Master Class Series for the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration System. The Master Class Series trains physicians on best practices and the most up-to-date techniques for male aesthetic patients on our cutting-edge technology. The ARTAS® Hair Transplant System is the first and only robotic system in the world designed to aid surgeons in hair restoration procedures.

The Master Class will be led by Dr. Ken Anderson, MD, FISHRS, a double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who focused his practice to the specialty of hair restoration surgery since 2003. He has practiced Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) since 2003, is in his sixth year of using the ARTAS® system and is an official U.S. Clinical Trainor for the ARTAS® System. Dr. Anderson is the founder and director of the American Academy of Hair Restoration Surgery, which provides advanced training to users of the ARTAS® System in dedicated courses throughout the year.

The Master Class includes a live demonstration, hands-on training, and multiple hair restoration topics, such as technical aspects of robotic surgery, overcoming challenges of hairline design, donor and recipient site planning.

Ryan Rhodes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Restoration Robotics, said, “Restoration Robotics is committed to the continued investment in physician education through peer-to-peer training on advanced robotic hair restoration techniques. The Master Class Series was created to support and advance our aesthetic physicians’ knowledge in utilizing the ARTAS® Robotic System and improving the patient experience.  Ultimately, the series will assist physicians to provide exceptional results to their male aesthetic patients.”

Dr. Anderson commented, “There is a learning curve in becoming skilled at robotic hair transplant surgery, and it’s our hope that we can help to increase the quality of care and aesthetic results for many more patients by hosting Masters Classes and imparting years’ worth of experience and surgical pearls on doctors new to the ARTAS® System.”
