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.

In the present study, Dr. Richard A. Berger, an orthopedic surgeon at Rush University Medical Center, reported that 92 percent of his patients who have minimally invasive total knee replacement surgery are able to leave the hospital and go home the same day.

Dr. Berger, one of the pioneers of the first minimally invasive hip replacement surgery using two small incisions, is also the first surgeon to perform the innovative minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty (TKA) as an outpatient procedure. Developed in conjunction with Zimmer, a manufacturer of orthopedic reconstructive devices, the procedure is called the MIS Quad-Sparing Total Knee Procedure because it avoids cutting muscles and tendons in the knee during surgery.
A similar procedure has been performed with partial knee replacement and is now being successfully performed for complete knee replacements by Dr. Berger and Dr. Aaron Rosenberg at Rush.
Berger says the minimally invasive approach translates into potentially great benefits for the patient.
Dr. Berger and Dr. Rosenberg have worked closely with Dr. Tria and Dr. Coon to develop the specialized instruments and the surgical technique required for this procedure.
And Dr. Berger was the first to perform the procedure on an outpatient basis.
These surgeons are beginning to train other surgeons on this technically demanding procedure through the Zimmer Institute, based in Warsaw, Ind., which includes a satellite training location at Rush University Medical Center.
"These benefits may allow quicker return to work and daily activities," says Dr. Berger.

Although joint replacement surgery has improved the quality of life for many, studies show that only three out of ten people who would benefit from a hip or knee replacement get it done, says Dr. Richard Berger, assistant professor of orthopedics at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
