Ran is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee surgery. He completed his Medical Degree and a Master in Biomechanical Engineering in 2006. After a general surgery internship and orthopaedic surgery residency here at NYU Langone medical center Hospital for Joint Diseases, He completed a fellowship in adult reconstruction and total joint replacement surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School.
He graduated summa cum laude from both his bachelor of science degree and master’s degree in biomedical engineering programs at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, where he later graduated as valedictorian of his medical class.
His practice at NYU Langone Medical Center Hospital for Joint Diseases focuses specifically on caring for people with hip and knee conditions. He has a particular interest in degenerative joint disease of the hips and
knees. Other areas of focus include treatment for people with developmental hip dysplasia, avascular necrosis, posttraumatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
“I had the privilege to train and learn from the founders of the field of joint replacement surgery.” Dr Schwarzkopf gained a vast amount of experience in performing complex and revision hip and knee surgery, partial knee replacement, ligament-sparing knee surgery, hip resurfacing, and hip fracture surgery. He uses patient-specific implants, robotic and navigation surgery, and minimally invasive surgical techniques for hip and knee replacements to ensure that patients achieve the results they expect in order to maintain their lifestyle and activity levels.
“I place personal follow up care of my patients among my top priorities.”
