Dr. Robert M. Bernstein‘s pioneering work in FUT, FUE, and robotic hair transplant procedures and his continuing contributions to the field of surgical hair restoration have assured his place among the best hair transplant doctors in New York.
His dedication of more than 20 years to the advancement and perfection of surgical hair restoration techniques has consistently earned him top awards in the field. This distinguished reputation draws patients from around the world to the state-of-the-art Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration for the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss.
The peer-nominated “Top Doctors” list — compiled by Castle Connolly and published annually in New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors in New York” issue — has included Dr. Bernstein for seventeen consecutive years. He is the only hair restoration physician to be named to this list for so many consecutive years. Castle Connolly awarded Dr. Bernstein a certificate citing him as among the “Best in American Medicine” for his consistent dedication and contributions to the field of medicine.
In addition to being recognized as one of the best hair transplant doctors in New York, Dr. Bernstein has collected the top accolades given to physicians by the hair restoration industry. In 2001, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS) awarded its top honor, the Platinum Follicle Award, to Dr. Bernstein. The award is given in recognition of, “outstanding achievement in scientific or clinically-related research in hair pathophysiology or anatomy as it relates to hair restoration.” In presenting this award, the president of ISHRS said, “Dr. Bernstein has contributed to the field of hair transplantation in dramatic and substantial ways, revolutionizing the advancement of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation.” Read more about the Platinum Follicle Award.
Dr. Bernstein was also named the Pioneer of the Month and the Surgeon of the Month in the industry journal, Hair Transplant Forum International. In naming him the Surgeon of the Month, the Forum editor wrote, “He has been a strong advocate of using follicular transplantation for the best possible cosmetic result, and has encouraged his colleagues to use this approach in both his writings and lectures.”
When he was named the Pioneer of the Month, Dr. Bernstein said, “A concern I have is that, as hair transplant practices grow into big franchises with large marketing campaigns, many people are being directed toward surgery rather than being treated as patients with hair loss in need of an accurate diagnosis, medical treatment, emotional support, and surgery only when appropriate.”
It is this honest and ethical assessment of the patient’s treatment options — accompanied by his exceptional surgical skills and aesthetic sense in performing a hair transplant — that makes Dr. Bernstein one of the best hair transplant doctors.
Our concern for the safety and well-being of our patients throughout the entire process is especially notable and makes us one of the best places to get a hair transplant. You can read about our office and staff or learn more in our section for new and prospective patients.
