Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum Orthopedic surgeon

Robert Reed a man who has kept active for nearly 25 years through activities such as practicing karate, playing football, and playing basketball. But it was activities like these that took a great toll on his body, ultimately leading to him developing arthritis in his knees which would require him to get surgery. Robert has described his pain as a constant throbbing and led him to feel the need to frequently take over the counter Advil for the pain.

To combat this pain doctors decided to perform a partial knee resurfacing. Because a knee has three different compartments doctors have the opportunity to only have to replace that one part that is causing issues, instead of the whole knee.

The procedure as done on Robert involves the process of resurfacing by attaching a plate that has metal on the front facing side and a high-density medical grade plastic on the other downward facing side, this leaves the rest of the knee, ligaments, and other aspects that make up the knee completely intact. This leaves the person feeling as if it were their old knee.

Perks of having a partial knee resurfacing is minimizing trauma to healthy bone and tissue. On the other hand with a total knee replacement, the entire knee is removed that leaves the possibility of it having to be replaced again in 10 years or so.

But according to Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, an orthopedic surgeon, a partial knee resurfacing is not an effective treatment for those who suffer from either severe or rheumatoid arthritis.

Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, a member of The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, specializes in a variety of surgeries involving the reconstruction or replacement of the joints. Some treatments he offers are knee replacement surgery, revision joint replacement surgery, arthroscopy, and reconstruction of the joints. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum received his training in Philadelphia at the Rothman Institute. He now resides in White Plains New York where he actively practices medicine.
