Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

How do I practice medicine? SImply put, I work to develop a partnership with my patients. Probably the most important thing I need to know is how your physical problem affects your life- more specifically your quality of life. My goal is to develop a dialogue with you, through which I strive to help you understand your unique orthopaedic pathology and your treatment choices. Many patients I see for their orthopaedic problems can be managed with conservative care- in other words, just because you come into the orthopaedic "surgery" office, does not mean you will necessarily need surgery. If a non-surgical option is available, I will explain that treatment in detail. If we, collectively, decide that surgery is the best treatment choice for you, we provide you with the resources and education to help you understand the entire process- from pre-operative treatment, to the surgery itself and then through the recovery process.Read more

Dr. Bertrand P. Kaper, MD says

One of the challenges I face in my practice is time management. My office is very careful about scheduling office visits. However, I will occasionally find myself late for scheduled appointments. If this occurs, it is typically because of an emergency or because another patient's problem is more complex, therefore requiring additional time. If I am late for your appointment, I do apologize.

Refused to listen to post surgical issues of extreme pain & inability to weight bear after 4 months. Said I must have arthritis because, in his words, I did everything right. Told me to take tylenol; referred to rheumatologist & MRI; then turned his back & walked out. The real issue was displaced iliac bone, piriformis syndrome and possibly myofascial pain syndrome - a possible side effect of THA. One yr. later, continued pain and limited mobility.Did surgery on acquaintance & broke his leg.

Outstanding surgeon as well as support team. When I have to replace my other knee, I will only trust Dr. Kaper and would travel across the country to benefit from his remarkable skills.
