Dr. Bernstein: New York’s Top Doctors for 20th Consecutive Year
Dr. Robert M. Bernstein, founder of Bernstein Medical, is included in New York Magazine’s Best Doctors issue for the 20th consecutive year. Dr. Bernstein’s two decades of innovation in surgical hair restoration and dedication to patient care have earned him recognition as one of the only hair restoration surgeons to earn placement in the peer-nominated Top Doctors of New York.
The annual list of the area’s best physicians is published by Castle Connolly, a well-renowned research company dedicated to helping consumers find the best healthcare providers. Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team uses an extensive surveying process of over 50,000 American doctors each year to curate this list who are at the very top of their specialties.
Dr. Bernstein’s latest contribution has been in the development of the ARTAS iX. The iX is the first entirely new design and upgrade of the robotic system for hair restoration surgery that was first introduced in 2011. It includes an advanced optical system to increase the accuracy and speed of harvesting, a more sophisticated design algorithm, and improved ergonomics for patient comfort. In addition to being one of the first in the world to incorporate the ARTAS robot into his practice, Dr. Bernstein was the first to publish medical research regarding Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
Bernstein Medical Announces Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) Program
Bernstein Medical’s Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) program is now in full-swing. The program is led by hair restoration surgeon Dr. Christine Shaver and SMP specialist Jennifer Oakley.
“We bring Scalp Micro-Pigmentation to Bernstein Medical in order to provide an important non-surgical option for our patients. SMP can be used in a variety of scenarios with the most popular uses being the camouflage of thinning areas of the scalp and disguising a prior surgical FUT scar. Effective use of SMP can allow patients to stop the use of fussy cosmetic concealers such as Toppik, and provide a more elegant solution.”
What is SMP?
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical, medical-grade tattoo procedure that involves the placement of tiny pigment deposits within the upper dermis of the scalp that simulates the appearance of naturally growing hair. For people who are balding or thinning, the goal of the SMP treatment is to create an illusion of thicker, fuller hair by simulating the look of individual hairs. Many people find Scalp Micro-pigmentation serves to be a great option for hair loss, especially for those who would prefer a non-surgical cosmetic procedure.
