Outpatient hip and knee replacement is a new pathway for certain, select patients to be able to undergo hip or knee replacement surgery in the ambulatory surgery center and be discharged home the same day.
I saw Dr Berni for knee pain and ended up with replacements. He is very pleasant, easy to understand his diagnosis and surgery procedure. He is interested and concerned about his patient. He gave me all the time I needed for my appointment
As I get ready to make the call to take my son to have Dr. Berni look at my son's foot, I am reflecting back on the other trips we have made to see him over the past 6 years. With three active kids, I have found myself bypassing my primary and going directly to Dr. Berni. Dr. Berni is so kind and accurate.
Anthony Berni and his staff are very professional, caring and understanding. I've never had a long wait at an appointment, I have had a ton of questions which he or his nurse answers in a very timely manner. Dr Berni spends time with me and explains things in detail. He's the best!!
