The Best Doctors in New York
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 4, 2008
Robert M. Bernstein, M.D., F.A.A.D., and fellow hair transplant surgeon Dr. William Rassman, have co-authored the first authoritative, but user-friendly guide, to help both men and women understand more about their hair loss, its prevention, and treatment options. The book, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., is set for a December 3 publication date. Titled Hair Loss & Replacement for Dummies, the book follows in the tradition of the other informative books in the popular For Dummies series. Dr. Bernstein is also the author of numerous other medical publications, which can be found at http://www.bernsteinmedical.com.
Those who follow the current trends in hair restoration and hair transplant procedures will know Dr. Bernstein for his pioneering work in the development of the Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure which has revolutionized the treatment of hair loss. Dr. Bernstein has also recently been awarded a certificate of achievement from Columbia University and has been named to New York Magazine's "The Best Doctors in New York" for the ninth consecutive year.
"The reason that Dr. Rassman and I felt it was necessary to write this book is because we wanted to make sure that all men and women possess a basic knowledge about hair loss," Dr. Bernstein explained. "We feel that this book will provide men and women suffering from common baldness and other types of alopecia with the tools necessary to make informed decisions about their condition. There are a lot of options when it comes to the treatment of hair loss and we want to make certain that consumers are making the decisions that are the best fit for them as individuals - whether it is medical therapy or a hair restoration procedure."
In addition to providing readers with information about the latest trends in hair loss medications and hair transplants, the book also aims to caution against potentially harmful products that are currently on the market for treating hair loss. Finally, the text also gives tips for maintaining a healthy head of hair: from washing and drying correctly, to caring for children's hair.
