Dr. Berger was born in Montreal, Quebec and received her Bachelor of Science degree, graduating with distinction from McGill University. She subsequently moved to Boston and received her medical education from Boston University.
She started as an attending physician at Montefiore Medical Center as a Hospitalist and worked closely with residents, medical students and physician assistants, helping them develop both clinical reasoning as well as physical exam skills. She participated in the internal medicine inpatient consult service and developed an interest in perioperative medicine as well as patient safety.
She transitioned to Hospital for Special Surgery in 2014 to continue her interests in perioperative and sports medicine by collaborating with surgical subspecialties to ensure patients are optimized medically prior to surgical intervention. As a practitioner of perioperative medicine, she provides medical care for patients undergoing orthopedic surgery, commencing with the preoperative visit and continuing throughout the patient's stay.
