The entire experience has been fantastic! Both surgeries I experienced the same outstanding care and professionalism from every single person I encountered from check-in to being discharged. Dr. Berger did an amazing job on both of my hips. The recoveries have been very smooth and much quicker than I expected. I was golfing one month after surgery!

I had a knee replacement in 2012. I had surgery on a Wednesday and was flying home to Houston that Friday. The following Monday I started PT and in 5 weeks I was done with PT. I never used more than a cane following surgery and I only used it for a week. He listened to me and answered all my questions. From start to finish he and his staff were there when I needed them. Here I am in 2016 coming back to him to have my second knee replacement. I recommend him to anyone for knee and hip replacement

The initial visit with Dr. Berger may take some time but after that everything went smoothly. Everything is scheduled together for your pre op physical, and information meeting. Surgery went smoothly, and I was able to return to work as an electrician without any restrictions after 12 weeks of getting both knees replaced. The Dr. and his staff treated with the utmost professionalism, and have recommended him many times to friends and they have been treated the same. I highly recommend Dr. Berger

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
