Doctor Ira Kirschenbaum

Doctor Ira Kirschenbaum is a medical doctor and is also the chairman of the board of orthopedics in the Bronxcare Health System. He focuses primarily on the joints and bones in the knees, shoulders, and hips, and does many replacement surgeries for each of these joints. He and his practice also focus on correcting any damage sustained to the muscles, ligaments, and bones specifically in the knees, shoulders, and hips. Doctor Kirschenbaum takes great pride in his specialty of correcting many joint and bone issues that his patients are born with. Doctor Ira Kirschenbaum has several specialties and subspecialties that makes him one of the best orthopedists in the business.

The doctor recently did an interview on IdeaMensch and the first question he was asked was where the idea for his company came from. He said that he helped bring the website BoneHone to life, as it was brought up by Medscape Orthopaedics.

When asked what his typical productive day looked like, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum said that he checks emails and social media first thing in the morning so he can connect to people in the health care industry. He then goes to work early and writes down a plan for the day and for the week, and focuses on how to improve the lives of his patients.

Kirschenbaum has great ideas, and he told us how he executes them: he comes up with the idea, investigates then executes to bring the idea to life, then makes a plan to distribute the results to people who will use it.

The good doctor said that an exciting trend in his opinion is value-based healthcare which basically states that the patient’s outcomes relate to the analysis of real cost.

A habit that makes him more productive every day is the act of focusing on each of his doctors and surgeons and making sure he connects with them on a weekly basis in frequent and focused minutes so that he can help them as much as possible.

If he were to give advice to his younger self, he would say find someone who is doing what you do, but better, and learns from them.

“How Renovia Completed More Than $43 Million in Financing “

Recently Renovia, a new startup focused on women’s health completed another series directed at raising capital for their endeavor. The funds will be utilized for clinical research for pelvic floor disorders. The funds will also be allocated toward development of new tools, devices, and therapies that will aid in reducing symptoms of pelvic floor disorders.


The support will aid in running clinical trials, and putting up new products that are developed, as well as corporate development. There may also be funds allocated to any new commercial development as it occurs.


Each series of raising capital is important, but Series B was significant in that it raised by funds that are focused on healthcare. Groups included the Longwood Fund, Cormorant Asset Management, Western Technology Investment, and a few others. The advisor to Renovia was BayCross Capital Group which is out of Massachusettes. Marc Beer, the Co-Founder and CEO of Renovia Inc., is thrilled with what has transpired so far.


Recently, in a press release, Mr. Beer stated that he was thrilled with the participation from the investors that were a part of Series B. The groups that jumped in to be a part of raising the funds are all focused on healthcare and the technology that is so prevalent in healthcare today. He personally feels that those who did participate along with the health networks that were involved is a great representation of what Renovia’s vision is long-term.


Mr. Beer also went on to say that they are focused on utilizing a digital health platform. Over the last few years, healthcare has changed to a more digital approach. This also means that those who can benefit from Renovia’s products can access data that has been gathered about the best treatment options that have been selected by patients just like them.


The therapies that are being developed are digital, as well as any technology that will be used in diagnosing pelvic floor disorders. This is all because urinary incontinence has been noted to impact the lives of millions of women around the world. This company was founded in 2016, and it’s a great time to help more women that may be receiving a diagnosis.


Renovia Inc. was founded with the mission to help women with a first-line diagnosis of pelvic floor disorders. Renovia Inc. is developing diagnostic tools as well as therapeutic devices that may aid in resolving symptoms associated with pelvic floor disorders. Learn more:
