Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum Gets Excited About New Medical Technology
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is glad to see things improve where knee replacement surgeries and other similar surgeries are concerned. He is happy about the use of technology in those surgeries because he knows that patients will be able to recover better when they get the surgery done with it. The Mercy Medical Center has started doing surgeries using robotic technology, and that allows for smaller incisions to be made and less of a risk to be made through the surgery overall.
Those who get robotic surgeries done are able to recover quickly because the technology allows for accuracy. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum believes that the way that they use a CT scan and create a 3D model before surgery is very advanced and is a great thing. He believes that there are going to need to be many knee replacement surgeries done in the upcoming years and that robotic technology will be a big part of them. A surgeon is still needed when this technology is used, but they are able to guide the robotic-arm to do what they need it to do. And, they are able to quickly remove the old knee, or whatever it is that they are working on, and get the replacement put in because of the robotic arm.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum has worked in many places and in many positions during his career, including eight years at his own practice. He also worked for WebMD as a writer, and he is currently working for the Bronxcare Health System. And he is also the chief medical officer of another organization, DTC Health Com. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is focused on what he is doing with his career and gets excited about new technology because he is always looking for ways to make patients’ lives better. He attended Brown University.
