Dr. Richard Berger to receive Washington Award for contributions to joint replacement


The Western Society of Engineers is honoring orthopedic surgeon Richard Berger, MD, with the 2020 Washington Award Feb. 28 for his contributions to joint replacement, reports Patch.

Dr. Berger, of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush in Chicago, is the 102nd recipient of the award, following in the footsteps of Henry Ford, Orville Wright and Neil Armstrong.

He pioneered a minimally invasive hip and knee joint replacement technique that avoids cutting any muscle, ligaments or tendons.

Dr. Berger was the first surgeon to perform more than 11,000 outpatient joint replacements, according to Patch.
