Hair Loss Consultations
At our New York Center for Hair Restoration you will have a private hair loss consultation with one of our board certified physicians. To schedule an appointment, you may call us at 212-826-2400 or you may submit an online consultation request. Our office will respond to this request promptly and contact you to schedule an appointment. In-person consultations are preferred, because an exam allows the doctor to better evaluate your hair loss. For people who find it difficult to visit our NYC facility for a consult, we provide a Photo Consultation service.
At your consultation, you will receive a careful examination a description of the nature of your hair loss and a detailed, honest explanation of your best possible treatment options. The examination will aid the doctor in assessing your future hair loss and determining your candidacy for medical and surgical therapy. You may wish to read our About Our Consultations page to get a sense of what to expect at your consult.
If a procedure is being considered, we will address both your short-term needs and long-term goals to provide the best aesthetic outcome. We will take great care in the consult to discuss your expectations for your hair restoration.
Surgical Hair Restoration
We perform Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction (R-FUE) and hair transplant repair procedures, techniques that have been developed and refined at Bernstein Medical over the past two decades. All FUE procedures at Bernstein Medical use the unparalleled speed and precision of the ARTAS Robotic System.
While Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration is focused on surgical treatments, our doctors consider surgery only when other options have proven ineffective or are not appropriate. If a hair transplant is recommended, you can be certain that the procedure is medically indicated.
At Bernstein Medical, you will have the benefit of our vast experience, superior aesthetic judgment, and uncompromising attention to detail. Your procedure will be carried out in our state-of-the-art facility using only the most modern instruments and the most impeccable surgical techniques.
The clinical staff at Bernstein Medical is highly trained in FUT and Robotic FUE procedures and has worked closely with our physicians for years. Many of our staff have been with Dr. Bernstein throughout the development of his pioneering techniques, giving them extraordinary expertise in stereo-microscopic dissection, follicular unit extraction, and graft placement. Newer members of the staff are required to complete a stringent 12-month training period that includes follicular unit dissection, graft handling, and graft placement.
Members of the clinical staff are chosen for their integrity and dedication to the highest level of patient care. Their technical skills and professionalism are continually monitored and evaluated. Unlike other facilities, we do not hire per-diem or temporary staff; all medical staffers at Bernstein Medical are dedicated, full-time employees with technical expertise in performing surgical procedures and compassion in caring for our patients.
The size, skill and experience of our surgical team allows Bernstein Medical physicians to perform large transplant sessions when indicated. During surgery, assistants are rotated so they remain alert and focused. This ensures that the highest quality of work is maintained throughout the entire surgical session.
Our clinical staff works hard to make your experience at Bernstein Medical a pleasant one. We are aware that many patients are apprehensive of having any type of surgery and so we take care to make sure that you are relaxed and comfortable throughout your hair transplant or repair procedure.
We will provide detailed pre- and post-op instructions, both verbally and in writing, so you will know exactly what to expect throughout the entire process. You are encouraged to call, or visit us, any time you have questions. We will schedule both short- and long-term follow-up visits to assess your progress from medical treatments and hair restoration procedures.
At Bernstein Medical, providing you with exceptional medical and surgical care is our primary concern. We will work hard to ensure that your experience with us is a positive one.
