Milwaukee resident and adventurer, Ray Medley, 65, was able to pursue his dream of formation skydiving after having hip replacement surgery from World Renown Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Richard Berger! Dr. Berger’s innovative hip and knee replacement surgical techniques, which are performed in an outpatient setting, are minimally invasive -- meaning that his unique approach to surgery eliminates the need to cut muscle, ligaments, or tendons, thus allowing for a faster and more complete recovery. To date, he has performed more than 20,000 outpatient hip and knee replacements, more than any other surgeon in the country. Ray joins us to share how he found Dr. Berger and why he felt Dr. Berger was the right surgeon for job.

Dr. Berger performs surgeries in Chicago area and also at the Northshore Surgical Suites in Pleasant Prairie. After COVID-19, Dr. Berger began offering pre-surgical and post-surgical consults via telehealth. These virtual consults are very thorough and include the pre-surgery prep classes and some instructions post-surgery about activities around the home and even assistance with physical therapy. They are a cost-saver for out-of-town patients, who now don’t have to pay for travel expenses, such as transportation and lodging.
