Bauman received his Medical Doctor degree from New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY and had internship and residency training in surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center and Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan before specializing in hair transplant surgery and the treatment of hair loss, including primarily androgenetic alopecia or hereditary male or female pattern hair loss.

Bauman has been credited with pioneering low level laser therapy (LLLT) for hair loss,[12][13][14][15] minimally-invasive follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants,[16][17] PRP Platelet Rich Plasma, prostaglandin analogs for hair growth like bimatoprost,[18][19] hair loss genetic tests,[20] and live surgery webcasts.[21][22]

Bauman was the first hair transplant surgeon to demonstrate the FUE method of hair transplantation at the 2003 International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Orlando Live Surgery Workshop and developed the first commercially available instrument specifically for manual extraction of FUE grafts, called the 'Bauman MINDEX.'[23]

In 2017, Bauman was voted "#1 Top Hair Restoration Surgeon"[24] and received the Crystal Diamond Award by Aesthetic Everything.
