Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration welcomes men and women from California who are seeking the best hair restoration treatments available today. Dr. Robert M. Bernstein — a world-renowned hair restoration physician and Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Columbia University in New York – conducts hair loss consultations and performs his pioneering Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant techniques.
Robotic FUE hair transplant surgery is also available for any CA-based patients at our state-of-the-art facility in midtown Manhattan. We are the first hair restoration practice on the East Coast to use this advanced computerized system. FUE using this new robotic technology has several benefits that improve the manual FUE procedure. Continue reading to learn more about these benefits, or click over to our Robotic FUE page.
Travel to Bernstein Medical from California
We frequently see hair transplant patients from California because of our location in New York City. New York and California are the epicenters of the entertainment industry, with major functions shared between New York City and Los Angeles. While we cannot disclose the names of our patients, we have a number of celebrity hair transplant patients who flew from California to New York City to have treat their hair loss at Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration.
Most major airlines run direct flights to and from cities in California, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Irvine, Oakland, and Sacramento. American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, and other airlines offer plenty of direct flights to LaGuardia Airport, JFK, and Newark.
We are easily accessible by mass transportation lines that run throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut and which enter NYC. Patients often take the the Metro North train from points north of NYC, including cities and towns in Westchester and Rockland Counties as well as cities and towns in Connecticut. Patients traveling from New Jersey often take the PATH train or NJ Transit trains or buses. View our page offering directions to Bernstein Medical by car, airplane, or public transit.
Hair Loss Consultation
Hair restoration patients based in California who visit our NYC practice for a hair loss consultation are given a detailed evaluation and an explanation about the nature of their hair loss. The patient will be presented with the physician’s best therapeutic options, which include treatment with hair loss medication or surgical hair transplantation. Dr. Bernstein conducts the consultations for all male patients.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Hair transplant surgery is accomplished using Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the hair transplant techniques pioneered by Dr. Bernstein. The procedure will be carried out in our New York City Center for Hair Restoration with the utmost attention to aesthetic detail and patient comfort. Dr. Bernstein performs all surgeries for both men and women.
See our pages describing the FUT procedure and FUE procedure for more information on how we make you feel at ease and physically comfortable throughout the procedure. See some before and after hair transplant photos of our patients.
If a hair transplant is recommended for a patient traveling from California, our office will help the patient schedule the procedure, arrange travel plans, and of course answer any questions about pre-op instructions or post-op instructions.
Robotic FUE Hair Transplantation
Robotic FUE hair transplant procedures are performed with the ARTAS Robot for Hair Restoration. The image-guided robotic system reduces the length of the FUE procedure, increases the number of grafts that survive the transplant process, and increases accuracy of graft extraction. Bernstein Medical is the first hair restoration facility in the New York tri-state area that is taking advantage of this ground-breaking technology. Read about Robotic FUE
Medical Hair Restoration
Although Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration is focused on providing state-of-the-art surgical procedures for hair loss sufferers from California and elsewhere, hair transplantation is only considered when the physician determines that the patient would be a good candidate for surgery and when other options have proven ineffective. Dr. Bernstein is widely respected for his honest and ethical assessment of a patient’s treatment options, and will only prescribe what he finds to be most effective for the patient on a case-by-case basis. You can read more about medical hair restoration by reading about hair loss medications or low level laser therapy (LLLT).
Hair Transplant Repair
Dr. Bernstein devotes a significant portion of his time performing hair transplant repair procedures for Califnornia patients who have been referred to our practice due to poorly-performed hair transplants, procedures which used out-dated techniques, or difficult surgical hair restoration cases. In cases where the patient has an old hair transplant that used so-called “hair plug” grafts, these grafts can be excised, dissected under stereomicroscopes and then re-implanted in a substantially more aesthetic way. This procedure can be combined with FUT or FUE procedures for an even greater restorative effect. See some before and after hair transplant repair photos of our patients.
Hair transplant patients from California will not only appreciate Dr. Bernstein’s professionalism, but will enjoy getting to know him over time. Dr. Bernstein was raised in New York City, and opened his first hair restoration practice in Fort Lee, NJ. In the early part of the 2000s, Dr. Bernstein was set to expand his practice by moving to New York City. He designed the layout and interior design of the state-of-the-art facility that has been in operation in its midtown Manhattan location since 2005. In addition to numerous awards for his pioneering work in hair restoration and media appearances and interviews, Dr. Bernstein has been named to the acclaimed, peer-reviewed “Best Doctors in New York” list for more than 12 consecutive years.
When not at his practice, Dr. Bernstein teaches at Columbia University in New York City, publishes his work in the major medical journals, and enjoys a variety of activities. His wife, Shizuka Bernstein, owns Shizuka New York, a day spa in midtown Manhattan.
