Arthritis pain slowing you down?
You are not alone. 23% of Americans have some type of arthritis and 1 in 4 of those with arthritis suffer from severe joint pain.
Meet Dr. Richard Berger, one of the most well-known hip and knee replacement surgeons in the country, and learn about both conservative treatment and his specialized outpatient surgical procedure.
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.
