Dr. Unger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Unger "Dr. Robin Unger has practices, in New York City and Rockville, Maryland, exclusively dedicated to hair restoration. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) and a member of the ISHRS. She is one of the most well respected specialists in the field and one of the few female surgeons who performs this surgery on both men and women with hair loss. Approximately 40% of her patients are female and the remaining portion are men with hair loss. The emphasis in the practice is on providing superior cosmetic results and furthering the education of patients as well as physicians. Dr. Unger operates on only one patient a day and is therefore able to focus all her attention on every detail. The practice is shared with her father and mentor, Dr. Walter Unger - allowing for continual dialogue, exchange of ideas, and further refinement of technique on an ongoing basis. As an Assistant Clinical Professor on staff with the department of dermatology at Mt Sinai Hospital she also makes time in her schedule to teach the art of hair restoration surgery to residents and fellows from around the globe. Dr. Unger is a co-editor of the most comprehensive textbook in the field of hair restoration, Hair Transplantation 5th edition, and has authored numerous other chapters and articles advancing the specialty of hair restoration surgery.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Unger "I am an ABHRS diplomate, and Board of Director and Assistant Professor at Mt Sinai Ethics Committee of WDS (Women's Dermotologic Society).

The "artistry" of surgical hair restoration has the greatest impact on results - and should ideally be combined with other treatments to help maintain healthy hair. I believe each patient should have a complete evaluation and a tailored unique treatment approach should be derived.
