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. Dr. Berger's Experienced and Dedicated Staff Dr. Berger has office hours at the following location:

new technology in knee replacements

www.arthritis-treatment-and-relief.com [cached]

Dr. Richard Berger, an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Rush Presbyterian Medical Center in Chicago, is a pioneer of the new technique.
He predicts that five years from now, almost all surgeons will be performing the minimally invasive procedure. "There's really no downside, only an upside," he said. In traditional knee-replacement surgery, Berger explained, the length of the incision varies, typically between 8 inches to 10 inches. "The quadriceps (front of the thigh) muscle is cut or split, the kneecap is flipped over and that exposes the knee. The bone is cut and sized, and the [artificial] knee replacement is put in." With the new technique, "we make an incision that is 3.5 inches or so," Berger said. The traditional approach requires 12 to 14 weeks of physical therapy, Berger said. The hospitalization time with traditional surgery is about four days, Berger said. He said he does the new surgery on an outpatient basis, but other doctors admit their patients to a hospital for the operation. Even advocates such as Bonutti and Berger acknowledge that not everyone is a candidate for the surgery. People who have already had extensive surgery on their knee may not be good choices, said Berger. "And those who are morbidly obese may not be," he said. But for most patients, the new approach represents a breakthough, Berger said.
