The innovations Dr. Bernstein has described through his medical publications are now a part of history. In the Millennium Paper of the journal Dermatologic Surgery, a comprehensive history of the field of dermatologic surgery cites Dr. Bernstein as being one of the three physicians who played a leading role in hair transplantation in the 1980′s and 1990′s.
“Millennium Paper: A History of Dermatologic Surgery in the United States,” draws on research and papers authored over the past 100 years to develop a timeline of the most important advances. The article appears in the January 2000 issue of Dermatologic Surgery (Volume 26, Issue 1).
Dr. Bernstein’s 1995 publication ‘Follicular Transplantation’ was the first to describe the use of naturally-occurring follicular units as the basis for surgical hair restoration. This paper and others have secured Dr. Bernstein’s place in the “long and distinguished history” of cutaneous surgery.
