Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum Is Working To Improve Arthroscopy
There are some people out there today that can live to be over 100 years old and still not develop any major health concerns, but this is certainly the smallest minority. Even when people manage to live beyond 90 years of age without health problems, they still develop problems with stamina, body pain, memory, and many other degenerative problems. Most commonly, the joints are the first problem to develop in older people which becomes a real problem when it comes to the legs and knees, which is why older people fall more commonly than younger people. Arthroscopy is a type of knee surgery that many older people with Osteoarthritis have to have done.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is a leading orthopedic surgeon with an eye for arthroscopy. Another name for arthroscopy is a keyhole surgery, which involves creating a small slice on the sides of the knee to access the inside with an endoscope. By looking inside, a surgeon can determine what the major issue is and what the best way to deal with it will be. Because the knee is not opened up completely, the recovery process is not at as bad nor does it take as long as most other knee procedures.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum has many years of experience as a surgeon in orthopedics and has done dozens of knee surgeries over the years. Not only is Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum a surgeon, but he is a successful entrepreneur, leader, and innovator. Today, Ira is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons for his contributions to the industry as well as his skill and knowledge. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum has personally developed various different tools to help in knee replacement procedures as well as a refined method of performing hip replacements.
