Robert Reed was an active man who practiced multiple sports for the past 25 years until it took its toll on his body in which he would develop arthritis in his knees causing constant aching and throbbing.
Pain medications were no longer useful to Robert as he became in tremendous pain, it was inevitable that Robert would have to get knee surgery.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, chairman of Orthopedics at Bronx care Health System clearly had an answer for Robert’s problem.
Performing a partial knee resurfacing doctors were able to lower the amount of pain that Robert would experience, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum uses a technique that gives the patient the ability to still completely feel their knee as if it’s all natural and still there old knee.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum uses a high-density piece of medical plastic and only a piece of metal. Leaving the rest of the patient’s knee and feeling of their knee intact, minimizing the trauma done to the healthy bone and tissue.
There are 3 parts that make up the knee but amazingly only the part that is damaged and / or diseased would have to be replaced in this type of procedure.
And this is better versus a complete surgery getting the whole knee replaced, where if that knee fails or goes bad over time and then needing a whole completely new knee.
Although this procedure will not be as effective to someone with severe arthritis but perfect for someone with arthritis restricted primarily to a certain specific area of the joint, which pretty much covers 70% of all arthritis types that exist.
