Richard A. Berger, MD

Assistant Professor Rush University Medical Center
Practice Emphasis: Minimally Invasive Hip and Knee Replacement
...
Dr. Berger has pioneered minimally invasive hip and knee replacement
Allowing patients to recover faster with less pain than patients undergoing traditional hip and knee replacement surgery. His surgery is unique because of his advanced techniques which allow him to perform the surgery without cutting any muscle, ligaments or tendons, on the patient. These advances allow most of Dr. Berger's patients to walk independently and leave the hospital the same day of surgery. His mechanical engineering background has also helped him to design gender-specific implants that fit and perform better for active patients. Dr. Berger was fellowship trained in adult reconstruction at Rush University Medical Center. Dr. Berger also conducts research on hip and knee replacements. As part of his pioneering role in minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Berger has developed specialized instruments and techniques for surgery, as well as knee and hip implants. As the developer, Dr Berger, receives royalties and payments from the manufacturers of these devices. Additional information regarding these manufacturers, devices and instruments will be provided to you upon request.

According to a study performed by Dr. Richard Berger of the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, at least 36 percent of patients who were implanted with the NexGen CR-flex device showed loosening of the device from the femur, the bone to which it attaches. In 8.3 percent of the recipients, the loosening was painful enough to convince them to undergo revision surgery, or surgery to correct the problems caused by the device. Given the often painful nature of knee replacement surgery, this would mean that the problems caused were severe indeed. However, many patients preferred a second round of surgery to the continuing problems caused by the defective knee replacement mechanism.

There is a growing outcry for Zimmer to address the problem of its knee replacement device. Dr. Berger, who was a consulting physician for Zimmer at one time, no longer works for the firm, and has been accused by Zimmer of incorrect surgical procedure in the placement of the knee devices. Given that Dr. Berger was the company's expert during the development of the NexGen CR-flex model, this is odd, to say the least.
