Physician Profile: Dr. Richard R. Berger, MD • Hip/Knee Replacement | Chicago Health

Richard A. Berger, MD • Hip/Knee Replacement
Richard A. Berger, MD • Hip/Knee Replacement Pictured standing from left: Arisha Zingarelli, Administrative Assistant; Jenny Sprenzel, RN; Kylie Less, New Patient Liason; Jennifer Larson, Nurse Clinician; Richard Berger, MD; Courtney Kelly, Marketing Coordinator; Kimberly North, RN; Shelia Sanders, RN; Lyndsey Johnson, RN. Dr. Richard Berger and his dedicated staff offer the most experienced and comprehensive approach to minimally invasive hip and knee replacement. Dr. Berger was the first to pioneer and perfect these minimally invasive procedures, which result in minimal discomfort and rapid recovery. Patients are able to quickly return to an active lifestyle after their joint replacements, feeling that years have been given back to them. Now alleviating arthritis pain for more than 1,300 patients each year, Dr. Berger's method allows most patients to walk unaided and leave the hospital the same day of surgery. Whether patients are local, national or international, Dr. Berger's team provides a seamless and holistic surgical experience. Patients benefit from the latest technological advancements, such as gender-specific implants, partial replacements, new bearing surfaces, modular implants and bone-conserving procedures. Dr. Berger's team provides extensive preoperative education so that every patient knows exactly what to expect. The team is devoted to treating the whole patient, tailoring the surgical experience to each individual down to the smallest of details. Upon becoming a patient of Dr. Berger, patients can expect the staff to be responsive and accessible throughout the surgical experience-24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients will always have direct lines to call, not impersonal call centers, allowing patients to be treated as individuals. This dedicated team includes four registered nurses, three administrative assistants, a home services coordinator, a financial coordinator, a new patient liaison and one pioneering surgeon. Hip and Knee Replacements Give Patients New, Youthful Approach When Dr. Richard Berger performs hip and knee replacement surgery, he takes great care to minimize pain and speed up recovery, giving his patients a new lease on life. With his minimally invasive approach, Dr. Berger makes a small incision, without cutting through soft tissue, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Recovery time is shorter, which enables patients to regain motion quickly, getting them back to favorite activities and feeling younger than ever. "It opens up a new world to patients who have been living with pain prior to the surgery. Suddenly, they are able to get back to golf, yoga or traveling-things they haven't done in years," says Dr. Berger, orthopedic surgeon at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush and assistant professor of orthopedics at Rush University Medical Center. Such was the case for Sharon "Sam" Strandberg, who had both knees replaced with Dr. Berger in spring 2016. Expectations for Dr. Berger's patients are clear going into surgery. "Dr. Berger informs you of what to expect and gives clear, concise instructions," she says. "The class before surgery makes the whole experience less daunting. Dr. Berger gets the job done and done right." "With Dr. Berger's minimally invasive procedure, recovery is about half the time and with half the scar," she says. "I have no pain. I no longer walk with a limp or a waddle from pain. I have full movement, and my activities are not limited anymore. I am a very happy camper!" Dr. Berger's hip and knee replacements are done on an outpatient basis. Most of his patients go home the same day of surgery, without staying overnight in the hospital. "Minimally invasive surgery allows patients to recover faster with less pain," Dr. Berger says. "Patients experience minimal discomfort and rapid recovery. Joint replacement can restore mobility and alleviate pain. People shouldn't let joint pain stop them from leading an active lifestyle or from living their life to the fullest." Dr. Berger has pioneered minimally invasive hip and knee replacement, allowing patients to recover faster with less pain than with traditional hip and knee replacement surgery. Dr. Berger was fellowship trained in adult reconstruction at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and, as part of his pioneering role in minimally invasive surgery, has developed specialized instruments and techniques for surgery, as well as knee and hip implants. His degree in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has helped him design specialized instruments that allow the surgery to be done without cutting any muscle, tendons or ligaments. These advances allow most of Dr. Berger's patients to walk independently and leave the hospital the day of surgery. His mechanical engineering background has also helped him to design gender-specific implants that fit and perform better for active patients. Richard A. Berger, MD • Hip/Knee Replacement Richard A.
