The Good Samaritan Joint Replacement Center is proud to have Barry Kraushaar, MD as a member. Dr. Kraushaar is in his sixteenth year of practice and brings tremendous experience to our Center.
Dr. Kraushaar graduated the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1990. He was an intern at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York until 1991, and then returned to the Bronx for four years of Orthopedic Surgery residency in the Bronx Lebanon Hospital program, affiliated with Einstein. During his residency he worked at the Hospital For Joint Diseases/New York University where he gained expertise in Joint Replacement. In 1995-1996 Dr. Kraushaar attended a Sports Medicine Fellowship at Arlington Hospital/Georgetown University in the Washington DC region.
Doctor Barry Kraushaar initially practiced in an Orthopedic Specialty Group in Emerson, NJ. He worked with a team of surgeons specializing in Joint Replacement. He participated in many primary and revision cases, gaining special experience with the team. In 1999 Dr. Kraushaar started Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Spring Valley. This practice has grown to three doctors (with Dr. Jason Fond and Dr. Richard Popowitz, who also perform joint replacement here.) Their practice is now in a large specialty office in Nanuet, serving all of Rockland County and patients from the region.
Doctor Kraushaar has a special angle on Joint Replacement. He brings a combination of perspectives from his trauma experience in the Bronx (helping to minimize the trauma of joint replacement surgery), his sports medicine expertise (helping to optimize the rehabilitation stages of recovery), and over fifteen years of experience in practice. He currently performs about 75 to 100 total and partial joint replacements per year. For five years he has been the Co-director of a nearby Joint Replacement Center and brings these years of experience to our Hospital.
Doctor Kraushaar has a broad range of joint replacement skills. He performs shoulder replacement and has done partial, total, and “reverse” total shoulder replacements. He performs total and partial knee replacements, using the newest materials and computer-guided/MRI-assisted techniques. He performs total and partial hip replacements and has even done hip “resurfacing” in special cases. He constantly upgrades his joint replacement approach so that our patients benefit from the kind of care that once required them to go to New York City.
Not all patients need joint replacement. Doctor Kraushaar’s sports medicine expertise helps him to use less invasive techniques whenever possible. But if a joint replacement is necessary, he has the experience and skill to give patients their best chance for a good outcome right here in Good Samaritan Hospital.
