BronxCare Health System’s Department of Orthopaedics 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 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. In July 2014, Orthopaedics Services were expanded into an entire floor at the BronxCare Health and Wellness Center.
“Whether in the use of advanced surgical techniques or simply an office visit, the Orthopaedics team is always there for its patients and the community.”
