Date:10/8/2008

Dr. Robert Bernstein, developer of the Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure for hair restoration is featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show discussing hair loss and its treatment.

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 8, 2008 - The Oprah Winfrey Show features Dr. Bernstein discussing his pioneering follicular unit hair transplant procedure, focusing on the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques for http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/hair-transplant/index.php [hair restoration]. The Oprah Winfrey Show aired Tuesday, October 7th at 4:00PM EST on ABC.

Dr. Bernstein is a Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in New York. He is recognized world-wide for his pioneering work in the treatment of http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/hair-loss/index.php [hair loss]. Dr. Bernstein is known for developing the revolutionary Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure for hair restoration.

After introducing Dr. Bernstein to Oprah, Dr. Mehmet Oz (health expert on The Oprah Winfrey Show) presents video footage of Dr. Bernstein performing a hair transplant and then invites the patient live onstage to be inspected by Oprah. In addition to engaging with the audience about http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/hair-loss/index.php [baldness] and hair transplant procedures, Dr. Bernstein examines a person from the audience who is experiencing early hair loss using an instrument known as a densitometer.

The densitometer is a self-contained, portable, device that houses a magnifying lens for viewing hairs close to the scalp. The idea behind densitometry is to determine the degree of miniaturization, or shrinking of the hair's diameter, which contributes to hair loss. This information is used to evaluate whether the patient is a good candidate for hair transplant or medical treatment, as well as to predict future hair loss.

"http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/hair-transplant/follicular-transplant.php [Follicular Unit Transplantation] is a procedure where hair is transplanted exclusively in its naturally occurring groups of 1-4 hairs. It is the logical end point of over 30 years of evolution in http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/hair-transplant/overview.php [hair transplantation] surgery" explained Dr. Bernstein. "However, this by no means implies our work is complete. We are obsessed with making the procedure as perfect as possible."
