Orthopaedics

Providing an Exceptional Level of Care
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, Chairman, Orthopaedics.
Bronx-Lebanon’s Orthopaedics Department treats more than 35,000 patients and performs 1,800 operations annually. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, Chairman, Orthopaedics, has focused his efforts on the development of systems that produce quality and patient satisfaction, from the ground up.

He attributes his success to the distinguished staff of surgeons and orthopaedic professionals that were recruited. This team offers the most advanced and safest treatments to patients with bone and joint problems, including hip, knee, and shoulder replacements; spine, hand, and foot surgery; sports medicine; and trauma care, among other specialties.
“We are committed to offering all the patients in our community and the entire metropolitan area the level of experience, integrity, understanding, and skill they de serve.”
HIP AND KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY
Dr. Kirschenbaum is the lead surgeon of the hip and knee replacement program. As an innovator in the design and techniques of joint replacement surgery, Dr. Kirschenbaum provides his patients with the full range of available options.

The goal of joint replacement is to replace the part of the joint that has arthritis, whether that is a hip or a knee. The Orthopaedic team also specializes in partial knee replacements. This type of surgery covers the arthritic surface with metal to take away pain and give back motion, thereby avoiding, in many cases, the need for a total knee replacement.

BACK PAIN AND SPINE SURGERY
Bronx-Lebanon’s Orthopaedic team is achieving extremely positive results for patients with serious back problems. The spine surgery program is the first in Bronx-Lebanon’s history.

Coordinating care with non-surgical specialists in the areas of back therapy, spinal injections, and pain management, Dr. Joshua Auerbach, Chief, Spine Surgery, is focused on doing everything possible to relieve back pain, as well as treat scoliosis (curvature of the spine). When surgery is necessary, patients have available to them a totally modern spine operating room with the most advanced equipment.

SHOULDER PROCEDURES
Dr. Lori Weiser is an expert in the treatment of patients experiencing shoulder pain. Many of these patients can be treated with medication, physical therapy, or steroid injections. But, for those that are not responsive to these methods, shoulder replacement surgery is often the only answer. This procedure involves resurfacing the shoulder and replacing the damaged bone or area with a metal implant and plastic socket.

At the outpatient level, Dr. Weiser oversees the busy BronxCare Orthopaedic practice. Here, orthopaedic specialists and physician assistants offer a full range of clinical services, as well as digital X-ray and bracing.


SPORTS MEDICINE
Dr. Colleen Fay, Chief, Sports Medicine, utilizes her expertise and experience in caring for athletes that strive to be at peak performance. BronxCare Orthopaedics’ unique Game Day Same Day program is offering athletes, including weekend warriors, surgical and non-surgical intervention for sports related injuries.

Its expert team of foot surgeons and podiatrists are experienced in treating foot problems at the early and later stages, including the complications of diabetes.

HAND SURGERY
Dr. Sepideh Baghian, Chief, Hand Surgery, is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of the wide-ranging orthopaedic problems related to the hand. These include hand and ligament injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and infections, as well as arthritis related complications. Dr. Baghian also treats fractures of the wrist, forearm, and elbow.
