Dr. Kraushaar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kraushaar "I am proud to be a versatile Orthopedic Surgeon with over 20 years experience in practice. My training includes years of trauma and general Orthopedics, supplemented by specialty education in Total Joint Replacement. I am fellowship-trained and Board-Certified in the subspecialty of Orthopedic Sports Medicine. My social exposure drives patient care. I have had the privilege of treating patients in the urban trauma centers of the Bronx, New York. My internship in General Surgery was at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC, and I worked with the team doctors of the NY Jets for a season. I worked at the Hospital For Joint Diseases in NYC under world leaders in Total Joint Replacement and Pediatric Orthopedics. I published a paper on shoulders with the Chairman of Orthopedics. I spent a year training in Orthopedic Sports Medicine at Georgetown's program that was in Arlington, Virginia. I worked with the Redskins football team doctors. The program director, Robert Nirschl, MD is one of the world's most well known elbow and tendon surgeons. I wrote articles and even a chapter on Sports Injuries to the Elbow and on Tendon Injuries. Such research deepened my knowledge of the best way to manage many of the injuries we commonly see in daily practice. My early practice years were spent alongside two fabulous surgeons who completed the training by good old collegial experience. I worked alongside them as they performed thousands of joint replacements. This gave me the experience that ultimately led to my helping form the Nyack Hospital Joint Replacement Center, where I still practice. I routinely perform Total Knee and Hip Replacements, including Anterior Hips. My sports Medicine involvement has been steady and strong. I have been Medical Director of the Athletic Department at Dominican College in Blauvelt, NY since 2004, and am a Clinical Professor. I mentor Athletic Trainer students and teach at the college. Our practice covers St. Joe's Regional Prep School since 1996 - their football team is well known in the region as an excellent Championship team. In 1999, I formed Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. The practice grew and merged to help form Northeast Orthopedics and Sports Medicine - I am the Vice Chairman. Our office alone sees up to 500 patients weekly and we perform 1,000 surgeries a year. We are in Nanuet, NY - centrally located and easy to reach from the NYS Thruway. Our practice philosophy is to be accommodating and accessible. We strive to keep advanced and involved. Our practice serves the community and our hospitals. We participate on committees and help direct the changes that come through our region. I have been on the Board of Directors of the NYS Society of Orthopedic Surgeons for over 10 years. I contribute to NYS Worker's Compensation policy formation and participate in Legislative activities that relate to NYS in Albany. I do my best to maintain a balanced approach to the treatment of Worker's Comp and Personal Injury cases, and perform independent examinations that help clarify patients' injuries and the reasonable treatment course. I have served as an examiner for the Office Of Professional Medical Conduct. All the professional achievement and focus described above is unimportant if patients cannot feel comfortable under my care. I strive to listen longer, think deeper, and really try to help people of all types. I aim to meet people on their level, so that when they leave the consultation, they feel as if the doctor was speaking directly with them and really caring. It is not possible to make everyone happy but I try. I keep my education current, attending conferences routinely and reading regularly. Our office is strongly staffed with people who are truly dedicated to helping you. Our manager knows about Orthopedics, Medical Billing, Legal issues and Worker's Comp well enough to handle nearly every problem that reaches her desk. We aim to operate seamlessly and smoothly. We can usually see patients quickly and help get their care managed well. We have X-rays on site and as of September 2016 we will have a state-of-the-art MRI here. In addition to our surgeons we have a Pain Management Specialist with a special suite to perform procedures here. Thank you for reading all this. If you are a patient, I hope to be helpful to you. If you are a colleague, it is my honor to be a resource for you. Barry Kraushaar, MD"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kraushaar "Always aim to focus on the best interest of the patient. Listen and explain. Attempt to customize care to each person's situation. I tend to run late as the morning or evening sessions go on. If a complex case comes by the staff cannot predict that. I listen longer, ask more details, look at imaging studies, draw pictures, and try to send patients out with a sense of satisfaction that they have been cared for. I'm a problem solver."

My mom fell and broke her elbow. Dr. Kraushaar was able to schedule her surgery ASAP. Given her age, we couldn't believe how fast her recovery time was, as she was able to have almost full motion only a month after surgery. He made her feel really comfortable the whole way through! I highly...more
