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.
