I had total knee replacement in both knees by Dr. Berliner. He is an excellent surgeon and was great at explaining and guiding me through what to expect. He welcomed my questions and understood my concerns. His office staff was amazing in every situation…….Best decision I ever made. (5 Star Review on Google from A.G.)
Dr. Berliner at ONS is a superb physician and I can not recommend him highly enough. Knowledgeable and compassionate with a sense of humor. I had two anterior hip replacements in 10 months and couldn’t be happier. Run, if you can to Dr. Berliner. (Patient comments on ONS Facebook)
With two hip replacements in 10 months I cannot say enough about Dr. Berliner and ONS. Professional, caring and superb quality of care. Would recommend Dr. Berliner and ONS to anyone with orthopedic concerns. (5 Star Review on Google from L.G.)
I came across Dr. Berliner, who has a special training to perform anterior hip replacement surgery. This surgery shortens recovery time and it is also less painful. When I met Dr. Berliner, I knew I was in great hands. He explained everything to me in great detail and was very patient with me. I felt so comfortable that I scheduled my surgery before leaving the office. My surgery went smoothly. I was home next day. I highly recommend him! He is an exceptional orthopedic surgeon! Thank you very much. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from Y.)
Dr. Jonathan Berliner did anterior double hip replacement on my husband and we are both so impressed! His compassion and professionalism is amazing! We are both so grateful for his work and expertise! Thank you Dr Berliner! (5 Star Review on Facebook from D.S.B)
Dr. Berliner is a very nice man who answered all of my many questions prior to and after my surgery. It has been 4 weeks since my anterior full hip replacement and I am doing very well. I was pleased with his bedside manor, he had no arrogance and I never felt rushed at an appointment. Most of all, with Dr. Berliner’s muscle sparing anterior technique, I was able to do a full squat with no pain only 8 days after my surgery and I was twirling my cane like Charlie Chaplin on my daily walk! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from L. in New Canaan, CT)
I was having severe left hip pain and went to Dr. Berliner for a second opinion. I ended up having him do my anterior hip replacement this past January, and I am so pleased. He is professional and compassionate, and an excellent surgeon. I was a nervous wreck since I never had surgery before, nor had I ever even been in a hospital in my 67 years of living! He is wonderful, bottom line. I need a knee replaced too, and he will be doing that when the time comes! (5 Star review on Healthgrades from P.P. in Norwalk)
At 34, I was young to need a hip replacement, but needed one regardless. I am very grateful to have found Dr. Berliner. He handled a complex case swiftly and adeptly, with a calm confidence unparalleled in other surgeons.
The post-operative pain was negligible compared to the amount of pain I was in pre-op. Within a week, I was walking with a cane, something I hadn’t been able to do during the 5 months prior. Evident of his people skills, he even handled my post-operative anxiety about complications occurring like a pro, alleviating any concerns.
I sent the post-op images to a relative overseas who is also an orthopedic surgeon. He said Dr. Berliner did “brilliant work.” – I can only agree. Thank you. (L.D.)
Dr. Berliner is absolutely the best! I did much research before having my total anterior hip replacement and because he is young and starting his practice, I could not find much information on him. I took a chance because I had a good feeling and he did an outstanding job with my surgery. He was very present and available and didn’t have the doctor ego where he wouldn’t answer questions etc. etc. He was nothing short of incredible. I’m so thankful to him and all the team at ONS. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades by M.F. of Danbury, CT)
When I first came into your office, I was nine months post-operative from a total knee replacement from a doctor in Florida. He did a horrible job. I was +70/65 bend. Just horrible. I met Dr. Berliner after he came highly recommended. He changed my life on 12/15/17. He did a total revision on my right knee. I am now 8 days post operative and bending 80 already and -5. I am so blessed for him. It was a very tough surgery and he did an amazing job. (J.B., 5 Star Reveiw on ONS Facebook page)
