State-of-the-Art Hair Transplant Facility Opens in Mid-Town Manhattan

Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration, led by pioneering hair transplant surgeon Robert M. Bernstein M.D., has completed construction of their new state-of-the-art surgical facility in midtown Manhattan.

Occupying the entire 11th floor at 110 E. 55th Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues), this sleek new office has been designed exclusively for performing Dr. Bernstein’s pioneering surgical procedure known as Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation.

The only facility in New York designed specifically for Follicular Unit Transplantation; Bernstein Medical’s new center boasts the latest techniques in hair restoration. Special features include ergonomically designed equipment used by the surgical team to make the painstakingly detailed process of stereo-microscopic dissection go smoothly and efficiently. New techniques, such as vibratory anesthesia, custom surgical chairs and special lighting, maximize patient comfort.

In his seminal publications, Dr. Bernstein introduced a novel method of hair restoration surgery which recognized follicular units (groups of naturally growing hair follicles) as the ideal way that donor tissue should be used in hair transplant procedures. FUT, as it is popularly referred to, is now considered by many to be the single most important advance in surgical hair restoration in the last decade.

On the new center Dr. Bernstein stated, “Though our previous Manhattan location and our New Jersey facility both have had the latest technologies and instrumentation, it has always been our dream to design a surgical facility that had Follicular Unit Transplantation in mind from its architectural conception.”

Working closely with his architecture and interior design team, Dr. Bernstein oversaw all aspects of the project from its inception to insure that this new environment would be one to put patients at ease. From the use of natural sunlight and soothing colors, to the shapes of glass, stone and wood, all design elements were chosen to maximize the patient experience.

Dr. Bernstein has been named for the seventh consecutive year as one of New York Magazine’s Best Doctors for his pioneering work in hair transplantation. Dr. Bernstein is known to the general public from his appearances on NBC’s Today Show with Matt Lauer, CBS’s The Early Show, ABC’s Good Morning America, The Discovery Channel and other nationally syndicated programs.

The Secrets to Hiding Celebrities' Hair Loss - The Bergen RecordIn a recent article “The Secrets to Hiding Celebrities’ Hair Loss,” published in the New Jersey newspaper, The Bergen Record, author Abigail Leichman pondered the variety of techniques used by celebrities to battle hair loss. Articles such as these put a spotlight on the fairly recent phenomenon of celebrity hairline watching that has sprouted up in the media and on the web.

Chat rooms are filled with speculation about the seeming rise and fall (and sometimes rise again) of follicles for such stars as Matt Lauer, Mel Gibson and Jude Law. And for sports figures like Tiger Woods and Pete Sampras.

Ms. Leichman comments that such stars as Johnny Depp, Owen Wilson, and Matt Damon must increasingly depend upon their stylists to avoid bad hair days.

In her article, Ms. Leichman names Follicular Unit Transplantation “a hair-transplant procedure pioneered by a Fort Lee physician” as one of the secrets to Hollywood’s ability to reverse the effects of thinning hair. The article features Dr. Bernstein as a surgeon who’s list of patients “more than 5,000 male and female patients – he can’t name names – has included major players in theater, politics and high finance.”

With recent trends showing that more and more men are becoming comfortable with the idea of electing to receive cosmetic surgery and with the leap in successful results using new techniques mastered by doctors such as Robert M. Bernstein MD, men and women are looking to the rich and famous to help them decide where to go for procedures such as surgical hair restoration.

Bernstein Medical is meticulous about protecting the privacy of all of our patients. At Bernstein Medical every patient is treated with the same attention and care that the movers and shakers in Washington, Hollywood and Broadway receive.
