Doing What it Takes to Keep Patients Moving in the Right Direction

BronxCare’s Department of Orthopaedics treats more than 50,000 patients and performs 2,000 operations annually. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, Chairman, Orthopaedics, has focused his efforts on the development of systems that produce quality and patient satisfaction, as well as maximize access. Dr. Kirschenbaum attributes the Orthopaedic Department success to the distinguished staff of surgeons and Orthopaedic Department recruited as well as the administrative staff led by Michael Coburn, Practice Administrator. 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. Dr. Kirschenbaum is also moving forward with an Outreach Program where the Orthopaedic staff will provide its specialty services at Urgent Care Centers in the Bronx and Northern Manhattan.

“Whether in the use of advanced surgical techniques or simply an office visit, the Orthopaedics team is always there for our patients and the community.”
