Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is the Chairman of Orthopedics at Bronx Healthcare Systems. Dr. Kirschenbaum recently talked about the latest trends in joint replacement implant procedures. In July 2018, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum wrote a 377 page medical journal, Major Orthopedic Joint Repacement Implants Global Market Opportunities and Strategies To 2022 for the orthopedic industry.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum has decades of experience in surgical procedure and a great way with patients. Kirschenbaum created minimally invasive knee replacement surgery. The patient doesn’t need to have the entire knee replaced. By only replacing the surrounding joints, it reduces trauma to the surrounding tissue. Partial and minimally invasive knee surgery has a quicker recovery time than traditional knee replacement by surgery. Kirschenbaum has reinvented shoulder and hip replacement surgical procedures.
Dr Ira Kirschenbaum believes in using robotic arms as a surgical tool in modern day operations. Robotic arms make cutting into the knee more precise. Kirschenbaum uses 3-D consoles, making it easy for surgeons to see what they are doing. Using 3-D consoles leave little room for error and a better outcome for the patient. CT scans are taken of the joint and then the image is fed into a device that makes the image a 3D picture.
Generic joint implants are being commonly used in surgery. Generic joint implants cost less than real ones. In the near future, 3D printing will be used to create artificial joints. The implants will be customized to fit each individual implant patient. Instead of trying to find the right implant from a limited selection, the implants will be made to the specification of the patient’s need. There are lots of conditions to meet. Knee and hip replacement joints take a lot of weight and wear. If the person is heavy, that adds more stress to the implant joint.
