Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, specializes in minimally invasive knee and hip replacement. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is a member of the American academy of orthopedic. He also won numerous awards involving his hip replacement system but also his knee replacement techniques. He serves as an orthopedic consultant and works with webmd. He has helped his patient’s tremendously by inventing new ways such as partial hip/knee replacements, to help his patients recover faster.
In the video, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, show’s his amazing work as he explains an alternative to knee replacement surgery. Instead of an intensive surgery, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, had done a partial knee resurfacing which is less invasive than a knee replacement.with this new surgery, he has found a way to replace the part of the knee that does not work as well by resurfacing the end of the bone with metal on one side and a high-density plastic on the other side because only the damage part of the knee is replaced rather than the whole knee. The problem with replacing the whole knee is that, after 10 or so years, the patient would have to get another surgery to replace the replaced one. Whereas the partial knee replacement can last for years and wouldn’t be replaced as it can last longer than a total knee replacement.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum invention can help many people as technological advances. Whereas more and more people will seek better alternatives than having to go through a major surgery such as a knee, or hip surgery. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum will hopefully find more ways to help his patients with alternative surgery’s rather than a total replacement.
