His practice centers on problems of the hip and knee in all age groups from athletic injuries in younger patients and degenerative arthritic disease and joint replacement in the older population. Dr. Bronson has developed the Vision Total Hip, a widely recognized and used total hip replacement system which has been in use extensively for the past 10 years which avoids the use of cement in all age groups, substantially prolonging the lifespan of the replacement, even in young, active and athletic patients. In addition, he has done extensive work in developing new surgical instruments for minimally invasive unicondylar partial knee replacement which has revolutionized the treatment of knee arthritis in the 30 percent to 40 percent of patients whose knee arthritis involves only a part of their knee. Most recently, he has brought the cutting edge technology of Anterior Total Hip Replacement to Mt Sinai, the only total hip surgery involving no cutting of muscles which dramatically decreases post surgical pain, blood loss, and recovery time. Dr. Bronson has consistently been named one of New York's top orthopedic surgeons in Castle and Connolly's Guide to the top medical care in the city, as well as receiving numerous teaching awards.
Dr. Bronson's specialties and sub-specialties include orthopedic surgery, hip surgery, knee surgery, arthroscopy, total joint replacement.
