Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is an orthopedic specialist who practices in New York City – specifically its northernmost bureau, the Bronx. He’s proud to work for the Bronxcare Health System, located – as its name suggests – throughout the Bronx. Kirschenbaum spends most of his time practicing medicine in the operation room, tweaking, twisting, contorting, and replacing people’s knees, hips, shoulders, and other joints, though the three aforementioned joints are the most common cases presented to him.
He’s also the chief medical officer of DTC Healthcom, a consultancy group for all things orthopedic. Dr. Kirschenbaum is also active in the operation of the Swiftpath Program as its advisory chief program officer.
Like all physicians here in the United States, Dr. Kirschenbaum is a member of a medical practice organization – the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He’s also active with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons.
A former member of the board of directors of the Arthritis Foundation in the Hudson Valley Region, Kirschenbaum is proud to have brought home the 1994 James A. Vohs Award for Quality as the now-former reconstructive surgery chief of Kaiser Permanente.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum shared a few things about how he became successful in the field of medicine with Ideamensch recently – just days ago, as a matter of fact.
He once founded a company called BoneHone, which was later sold. He says the idea came from Medscape’s own Medscape Orthopaedics – getting ideas from competitors in any field of business is often worthwhile.
Dr. Kirschenbaum reported that he likes to check on both the Internet’s medical news and that on social media so he can find out what’s trending in the field. Rather than being clueless when patients or coworkers bring up important things related to the field of medicine – especially orthopedics – Ira enjoys being on top of things and is a staunch advocate or proper, prior preparation.
