An extremely busy clinician and master technician, Dr. Berger provides the fellowship with a wealth of clinical material. His practice emphasizes less invasive surgical techniques and he is a pioneer in the development of perioperative pathways to optimize patient outcomes. His research interests include clinical outcomes of both less invasive primary and complex revision procedures. Dr. Berger performs a substantial volume of partial knee arthroplasties (including unicompartmental and patellofemoral arthroplasty) and unique surgical exposures.

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.
Berger estimates that only about 3 percent of orthopedic surgeons in the United States are currently doing the minimally invasive knee procedure.But as more complete the necessary training, they'll jump on the bandwagon, he said.
"At some point almost every orthopedic surgeon is going to be doing this surgery," he said.
No Muscle or Tendon Damage
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.
Not for Everyone
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.

In 2010, Dr. Richard Berger, a former Zimmer consultant and orthopedic surgeon, along with a colleague presented their observations in a non-peer reviewed report entitled "The High Failure Rate of a High-Flex Total Knee Arthroplasty. The report summarized the doctors observations of 108 patients, 36% of whom showed signs of "radiographic loosening. Approximately 8% of those patients had knee revision surgery within just a few years of having their initial implant surgery. Though Dr. Berger's report recommended that the "device not be used on any patient," the CR-Flex remained in use until the FDA recall.
