In the past, multiple, small procedures were an inefficient way to restore a person's hair. Using these new techniques, we now have the ability to transplant 3000 or more follicular units safely in one session.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 2, 2008
Columbia University Medical Center awarded their Certificate of Appreciation to Robert M. Bernstein, MD, founder of Bernstein Medical - Center for Hair Restoration for his sustained contributions to the academic programs of the Department of Dermatology at Columbia University.
Dr. Bernstein specializes in hair loss and hair transplant surgery. He was instrumental in developing the Follicular Unit Hair Transplant procedure, now considered the most advanced technique for surgical hair restoration. This procedure has revolutionized modern hair transplantation, with its unique ability to mimic natural hair growth patterns in the scalp.
"With respect to medical feasibility, follicular hair transplant surgery is significantly different from traditional grafting," notes Dr. Bernstein. "In the past, multiple, small procedures were an inefficient way to restore a person's hair. Using these new techniques, we now have the ability to transplant 3000 or more follicular units safely in one session."
The complex nature and microscopic scale of the Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation procedure requires superior surgical precision. Dr. Bernstein is well known for his surgical skill and talent; he has been named in New York Magazine's "Best Doctors" list 9 years in a row.
In addition to his world renowned skill in the field of hair replacement surgery, Dr. Bernstein is also acclaimed for the care that he provides for his patients. Dr. Bernstein and the rest of the staff at the Bernstein Medical Center for Hair Restoration aim to provide their patients with the best possible care and comfort during their hair transplant procedure. Their award winning website http://www.bernsteinmedical.com is recognized for providing outstanding health information.
