He graduated from Harvard Medical School and did postgraduate training in Medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (Wash Univ) and then Dermatology at Harvard. After serving as a consultant (Major, USAR) in Landstuhl Germany he continued his academic career as an attending at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, then NY Medical College before Mt Sinai.

Dr Brauner is an active member of many societies, serving on multiple committees in the ASDS, ASLMS and AAD (where he was elected  to the Board of Directors). He is presently serving as President of the International Society of Dermatologic Surgery.

He has lectured in many venues across the globe and has contributed numerous articles, abstracts and book chapters but is proudest of his early involvement in teaching about skin disease in Blacks, having written the first textbook chapter ever on this subject (Moschella, 1975). He also is an early pioneer of laser surgery being the first dermatologist in the New York Metro area to perform cutaneous laser surgery and to establish the first resident laser training in NY (at Albert Einstein).

He has been cited by Vogue magazine as one of America’s top dermatologists, by New York Magazine as one of New York’s best cosmetic physicians and by New York and New Jersey Magazines as a “Top Doc”
