Kenneth G. Berliner
Kenneth G. Berliner, M.D. In 1988, Kenneth G. Berliner, M.D., graduated from Columbia University with a B.S. in Biochemical Engineering. He obtained his medical degree from Albany Medical College in 1992. He completed his Orthopaedic training at the University of Illinois in Chicago in 1997.
Having been trained in both Engineering and Orthopaedics, he decided to apply his engineering problem-solving skills to the field of medicine. Even after his extensive education and training, Dr. Berliner has remained very physically active: running, biking the MS-150, ski racing, and playing basketball. As a result, he is intimately aware of how physical activity can wear on the aging body. Although trained as a surgeon, it is due to his personal experiences that he has actively explored his interest in Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Berliner has maintained a special interest in improving the practice of Orthopaedics. Every day, he is thinking of improved techniques and new ways to apply technology to help with the regeneration of injured tissues.
Although he believes new technologies and techniques can be used to help regenerate new tissue or repair existing damaged tissues, he also believes there is still a role for traditional treatments, including surgery. However, whenever possible, Dr. Berliner is using the least invasive surgery possible to address the injury.
For over 20 years, he has been successfully practicing as a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon in Houston. During that time, he has become one of the busiest Orthopaedic surgeons in the region and has built an outstanding reputation for his Arthroscopic and Spine Surgeries. When he isn’t working, he is spending his free time with his wife and three daughters. He has also been known to win a poker tournament every now and then.
