|August Bessunger, M.D.
After working at a clinic for venereal diseases in Bonn, Bessunger worked at the Institute from 1919. He worked in a practice for skin diseases and devoted himself to radiological treatment, among others, the removal of beard growth in women and transvestites. This department of the Institute was therefore also called the "department of trichopathy and surgical cosmetics". After leaving the Institute in 1921, he went into private medical practice and was still working as a doctor in Berlin in 1937.
