Something New – ABHRS Brochure ABHRS certification is an honor and mark of excellence. The ABHRS has created a brochure to help your patients understand the high standard you have achieved by becoming a diplomate and why it is important to use a hair surgeon certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. This informational brochure is available to all diplomates for a nominal fee in bundles of 25-100 for use in your patient waiting area, and can be viewed at the ABHRS booth in Prague.
