Richard A. Berger, M.D.
Hip & Knee Reconstruction and Replacement
Orthopedic Surgeon
Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush

Assistant Professor, Rush University Medical Center

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. His degree in mechanical engineering from MIT has helped him design specialized instruments which 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.

Dr. Berger was fellowship trained in adult reconstruction at Rush University Medical Center. Dr. Berger also conducts research on hip and knee replacements.

Dr. Berger, as part of his pioneering role in minimally invasive surgery, has developed specialized instruments, 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.
