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.


About Us | Outpatient Hip and Knee

www.outpatienthipandknee.com [cached]

But hip and knee replacements with Dr. Richard Berger, orthopaedic surgeon at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush and assistant professor of orthopaedics at Rush University Medical Center, are anything but typical.

A pioneer of minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, Dr. Berger performs surgeries on an outpatient basis. A few hours after they emerge from the operating room, his patients typically walk 200 feet around the nurse's station, climb up and down a flight of 15 stairs, and then go home the same day.
...
With his minimally invasive approach to knee surgery, Berger makes a small 3- to 4-inch incision, without cutting through muscles, tendons and ligaments, so patients can recover faster. The recovery time is shorter, which enables patients to move their leg as quickly as possible before scar tissue builds up.
Dr. Berger has used his mechanical engineering background to develop surgical tools that enable him to maneuver around a patient's muscles and tendons to reach the arthritic bone. Then he carefully removes small pieces of the bone until he gradually has enough space to implant the new prosthesis, which is the same type of prosthetic used in standard total joint replacements.
...
With Dr. Berger's minimally invasive approach, patients have less time in the hospital and are able to regain motion much more quickly.

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 patientsMeet Our Team

Algonquin's 'Bionic Man' Returns to Mountain Hiking after Third Joint Replacement - Patient Stories - Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush

Still, it was not until after speaking with a friend, who had suffered from the same groin pain and had undergone a hip replacement as a result, that Richard decided to seek the help of a very familiar physician, Dr. Richard Berger, of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR).

...
Dr. Berger, a hip and knee specialist at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, known for pioneering minimally invasive hip and knee replacement procedures, had already performed Richard's two knee replacements.
After a careful examination, Dr. Berger explained to Richard that he had no cartilage left in his hip, which was causing bone friction and the pain in his groin. Dr. Berger recommended a minimally invasive hip replacement, and earlier this year, Richard had the surgery.
True to Dr. Berger's promise, Richard was released from the hospital with his new hip the same day. "I even slept in the second floor bedroom that night," Richard adds. Only three weeks post-surgery, Richard flew to Phoenix, where he completed a two-mile hike at an elevation of 800 feet. He explains, "I don't think I am ?The Bionic Man,' but if three artificial joints allow me to live and enjoy my life, I'll take it!"
Richard recommends Dr. Berger's minimally invasive procedure to others. "I've recommended 12 people to Dr. Berger and no one has had a bad review," he explains. "Dr. Berger discusses symptoms, X-rays, diagnosis and treatment options without beating around the bush.
