Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum: The Connection of Obesity and Joint Replacement Surgeries

Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is an orthopedic surgeon who works at the Bronxcare Health System. Recently, he shared a study that he described as alarming – the study detail how the number of people who require joint replacement surgery is increasing through the years, and the average age of people who require the surgery is becoming younger. Before, people who are ages 68 and above are the ones who require this surgery, but in a recent trend, the average age for those who go to the hospital to get a joint replacement surgery went down to 65 years old. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum said that this is because of the unhealthy lifestyle practiced by many Americans.

Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum explained that when someone is living an unhealthy lifestyle, their risk with obesity and its related diseases increase. Those who are gaining a lot of weight are giving more pressure to their knees and the joints that support it. As a result, they will be developing weaker joints, and it would have to be replaced as soon as the damages appear to prevent any further problems with the knees. People who have been going back and forth to the hospital for their surgery are labeled as obese, and Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum said that it can only be prevented if the public is informed about the dangers of eating too many calories and becoming morbidly obese.

Currently, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is practicing his profession at the Bronxcare Health System, and he advised the public to contact their doctors immediately if they wanted to have their conditions resolved. He said that the problem with the joints should be addressed immediately because it can result in more serious conditions that could disable the patient. He also recommended eating a balanced diet and performing different exercises that would keep the body in shape.

Alex Pall Talks Chainsmokers Fame and Future

In just a few short years, the Chainsmokers have gone from being obscure musical artists to becoming a household name but just how did the DJ and production duo get their start? Mathias Rosenzweig recently sat down with Alex Pall to discuss their success, their views on the music industry and where they plan to go with their career in the future. The duo initially met when Pall was DJ-ing in and around New York. His manager was the one who introduced them and they immediately began working together after Pall quit his job and Taggart moved down from Maine. Taggart was in college when he first met Alex and they immediately knew they would work well together. They realized how serious each other is about making music and, before long, they were creating brand new beats and selling out countless music arenas together.

Unlike other DJs, however, they are notorious for having Pall sing on their songs, but they feel it’s completely justified. In the interview, Alex talks about how important it is for him to sing on their songs, especially when the songs pertain to them. He also praised Halsey and her individualistic musical style and identity. They want to work with artists like her who are unique and not afraid to be themselves. He also discussed their ever-expanding fanbase and how it went from being just young adults to people of all ages. Despite this, they don’t take their fame for granted.

Finally, he discussed their live concerts and how their live performances have evolved over the years as the music industry has changed and grown. Unlike some other musicians and bands, the Chainsmokers are notorious for singing live in lieu of lip syncing and this is something in which they take great pride. Also, unlike some other musicians, they don’t plan on taking any hiatuses anytime soon. He believes if they take a break and come back a few years later, things just won’t be the same as before. So we wish the Chainsmokers the best of luck on their future endeavors and on their career.
