Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum received his medical degree at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He has been in practice in the Bronx for over twenty years. He still practices in the Bronx and is the chairman of Orthopedics at Bronxcare Health System. This is good news for people who suffer from partially injured knees.
As we can see by viewing the U Tube video, titled The Alternative to Knee Replacement, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum does indeed bring good news. This youtube video shows us some examples of people for whom a total knee replacement was not feasible. Clients didn’t want to deal with the downtime after surgery. These people with partial knee Osteoarthritis had to live with the pain and constant need for pain pills. For these people Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum has provided an alternative.
Google the video The Alternative To Knee Replacement. As the video explains, for people with damage to part of the knee, partial knee replacement can resolve their problems. The knee has three parts, and only one part may be damaged. This is true for seventy percent of people with knee problems. They are able to have treated that part of the knee by having resurfaced part of it with steel and medical plastic. While this would not be a good treatment for those with severe arthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis, those with partial knee arthritis may be able to have only the affected part of the knee resurfaced, thanks to Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum. These people can keep the feeling in most of the knees, and trauma is minimized to the good bone and tissue.
This is wonderful news from Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum for most people who suffer from partial knee problems.
