Dr. Robert Bernstein, MD
Dr. Robert M. Bernstein is Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in New York City, a pioneer of modern hair transplant surgery, and founder of Bernstein Medical - Center for Hair Restoration. He is recognized worldwide for developing Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and Robotic Hair Transplantation; procedures that have revolutionized modern surgical hair restoration. Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration, located in midtown Manhattan NYC, is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss using these state-of-the-art techniques. Dr. Bernstein is the recipient of the "Platinum Follicle Award", the highest honor awarded by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), for his outstanding achievement in scientific and clinical research in hair restoration. On presenting the award, the president of the organization said of Dr. Bernstein's pioneering career: "Dr. Bernstein has contributed to the field of hair transplantation in dramatic and substantial ways, revolutionizing the advancement of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation. His published articles have become 'Bibles' for this methodology. Dr. Bernstein's contributions extend beyond the application of Follicular Unit Transplantation, such as studies in examining the power of sorting grafts for density, yield by method of graft production, local anesthetic use, and suture materials." In "Millennium Paper: A History of Dermatologic Surgery in the United States," published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery, Dr. Bernstein was cited as being one of the three physicians to have played a leading role in Hair Transplantation in the 1980's and 1990's. Dr. Bernstein continues to innovate with his pioneering work in FUE and Robotic Hair Transplants. In addition to running a busy surgical practice, Dr. Bernstein teaches at Columbia University and lectures both nationally and internationally on the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss.

Care Philosophy

Bernstein Medical takes great in providing the highest level of treatment and care for our patients. In visiting us for a consultation, you will meet with one of our board certified physicians who will perform a thorough evaluation of your hair loss and provide an honest assessment of your medical and surgical options. Treatment recommendations will be based solely on what is best for you, and a hair transplant will only be recommended when surgery is medically indicated.

If you are indicated for a hair transplant, you will have ample opportunity to ask questions and review information about the procedure, pre-op/post-op instructions, and post-op care. We perform surgery with meticulous attention to detail, and provide long-term follow-up. If you are not a candidate for a hair transplant, medical treatments may be recommended.

Bernstein Medical complies with OSHA and HIPAA Compliance Regulations, has up-to-date accreditation by the AAAHC, and is rated A by the Better Business Bureau.

I didn't want to admit I was losing my hair and it took me years to decide to do something about it. I went into his office ready to have a hair transplant and it was really shocked to find out that I wasn't a good candidate for one. We've started other treatments to stop my hair loss and I've been really happy so far. He is a really good doctor and I absolutely recommend going here if you want an honest answer.
