Joint replacement operations are one of the most embraced elective procedures in the United States. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons recently conducted a survey. The study indicated that the standard age of replacement of joints is going down. The survey also indicated that men are embracing the procedure more. Dr Ira Krischenbaum, who is the director of orthopedics at Bronxcare Health System often does these procedures on patients and collaborates with other surgeons whose emphasis is on joint replacement.
The joint replacement guru and an orthopedic surgeon is a graduate of Brown University. He was certified at the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia. His specialized training is on joint replacement surgeries. He also doubles up as a member of many medical associations. He is also a lecturer and writer on information technology, process design, and management in relation to the medical field.
Dr Ira Krischenbaum has shared some insights on the history of orthopedics of late. He says that the history of joint replacement traces its roots from the 1890s. During its inception surgeons just replaced a hip’s joint ball. Sir John Charnley developed the current method for complete hip replacement in the 1960s. These procedures, however, did not gain momentum till the 1970s. With complete joint replacement, joints that have arthritis are removed and replaced by artificial or metallic implants. The replacements parts take after the natural joint in terms of size, shape, and movement capability.
Shoulder, knee and hip joints are the ones that are mostly replaced. Joint replacement procedures in the past were risky and took longer to heal. That has changed in recent times since some of these procedures are done as outpatient services. However, they are not suited to last forever; they ought to be replaced or redone over time. Dr Ira Krischenabum sensitizes healthy living to his patients after joint replacement surgery. This is because one of the causes of joint complications is pain and obesity.

Dr. Holterman is a medical practitioner keen on the development of technology and finding the cure for illnesses such as diabetes. He is an alumnus of the Virginia University and also lectures surgery and Pediatrics at the University of Illinois. Dr. Holterman is a member of various boards such as the American Diabetes Association (ADA), IPSAC, and Mariam global health.
IPSAC relies on donors and volunteers to improve healthcare and Pediatric surgical care. Volunteers who chose this program offer their support through patient care, training lecturing and surgery at medical schools in Vietnam. These volunteers must possess a visa valid for six months, a copy of professional license and resume. Once these conditions are met, the volunteers traveled to Vietnam and briefed on the proceedings and their period of stay.
Dr. Mark Holterman is the CEO of Mariam Global Health which has strong interests in the development of cell-based therapies. The Congress passed a bill which funds support for generative medicine (Facebook). The act also helps in the fast-tracking of drug approval procedures.it provides efficient FDA approval process for certain stem cells practices.
Dr. Holterman is behind the establishment of Hannah Sunshine Foundation. The organization aims to use cellular regenerative therapies for children with rare diseases. The primary disease of focus for this institution is Systematic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (SJIA). The condition not only affects the joints but other body organs such as the lungs, liver, and heart. The condition mainly affects children and currently does not have a cure however efforts are being put forth to deal with it. The organization alongside cellular therapies created cellular and regenerative therapies. The organization utilizes stem cells when conducting therapies (easily found in body fat tissues) they are often taken from the bone marrow and placental tissues. The cells can grow into many different cells and help in combating inflammation, improve healing, stopping cellular decaying forming new blood vessels.
Mark Holterman received an award, which indicates his accomplishment in the field of Diabetes Care. The organization is pressed to funding research into diabetes cure and prevention measures. The recipients of the award must have an innovative hypothesis that is related to the pathology of diabetes and demonstrates the significant progress concerning diabetes treatment and prevention. With all these organizations, Dr. Mark Holterman contribution toward the development of medicine cannot be overlooked but glorified with the highest honors.
