    I had a hip replacement 3 days ago. The results are everything promised. I am a physician with 27 years experience. I went to Dr. Berger for his technical expertise. He answered all my questions at the pre op visit, came to my room before surgery to answer more questions. and met with my brother after surgery. I spent enough time with Dr. Berger and never felt rushed. However, we did not chit chat, we discussed the procedure thoroughly. My alignment and leg length is perfect. His team is great.

    He is the best orthopedic surgeon in America. He uses minimal invasive surgery. He does not cut through muscle. Dr. Berger developed his tecnique,tools,and implants. He may be the most experienced surgeon performing over 1000 replacements a year. I had knee replacement surgery yesterday and was walking up stairs a couple of hours later. Today I am walking without a crutch and have 110 degree.flexion I am a physician and did my research. I am so impressed.i wish I had more space to . recommend
