eHealth Podcast: The Future of Medicine

eHealth Radio Network

Dr. Richard Berger, M.D., a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon at Midwest Orthopedics at Rush and assistant professor at Rush University Medical Center, Chicago joins eHealth Radio and the Orthopedic & Tele-medicine Channels. The pioneer of a minimally invasive technique, Dr. Berger was the first in the world to perform outpatient hip and knee replacement surgery and has done over 12,000 surgeries — more than any other surgeon.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Richard Berger discuss the following:

  1. Can you tell us about your background? What got you started in orthopedics? What makes your approach to joint replacement unique? Who are the patients that you are normally seeing?
  2. During the pandemic, many physicians quickly pivoted to telehealth to continue seeing patients. Can you discuss this shift how it has affected your work with patients?
  3. Would you say that telehealth has allowed you to interact with patients in ways that you could not previously?
  4. How has telehealth led to greater convenience for your patients?
  5. Do you think that embracing telehealth during the pandemic led to greater success for you and your patients? Is Tele-health here to stay?
