One of his latest contributions to the field of hair restoration is The Cohen Classification System of hair loss. It allows physicians to score their patients' degree of hair loss (on a scale of 1 to 100) and provides a method for tracking each patient's future hair loss and growth. He has also developed a new technology called HairCheck, that allow physicians to measure how much hair a patient lost, how much hair they have grown, or simply how much hair they actually have. It can detect the very earliest signs of hair loss 10 to 15 years before balding becomes visible to the naked eye. At present, there is no device available that will perform this function.
