Treating Patients As Hair Loss Sufferers, Not Just Hair Transplant CandidatesSeptember 23rd, 2011
In this video clip from an interview with Hair Transplant Network, Dr. Bernstein discusses how he treats patients with hair loss as patients, not just as surgical candidates for hair transplantation.
Below is a transcript of the video interview:
“I think the most important thing in my practice is that we don’t view people as coming in for hair transplants. We view them coming in as having a hair loss problem or self image problem. First of all, we try to understand exactly what bothers them. And then the next thing is to try to find out what the best solution is. Sometimes people just need a little hand holding. Many people come in having very early hair loss and need medical therapy. Many times women come in and they don’t have androgenetic alopecia. They either have hair loss from thyroid disease or some other condition. So it’s really important to evaluate the person very thoroughly first and make sure that those people who are eventually going to have surgery have considered other options and are really appropriate candidates for surgery. We look at evaluating people as having hair loss, not as being candidates for hair restoration surgery.”
