SPORT Orthopedics + Physical Therapy

For Multimillion-Dollar Athletes and the Rest of Us

John’s only
regret is that he didn’t see Dr. Robert E. Berry sooner. “I’m 62 and was
forced to retire from training horses after 30 years due to injuries,” he
said. “I was in severe pain when sitting and needed a cane to walk more than
50 feet due to slippage of my knee joints. I tried Acuscope, Myoscope, wraps,
braces, laser treatments, and pain medication. I came to SPORT Orthopedics +
Physical Therapy looking at total knee replacements, but Dr. Berry suggested
arthroscopic surgery to repair ligaments, cartilage, and tears in the
structure of my knees, then shots to replenish fluids in the joint. He did
the surgeries, and I began weekly shots. Today, I don’t use a cane and I’m
active again. In those 30 years of horses and motorcycles, I’ve broken 53
bones, so to be active today is truly a
blessing.”

A Team That Cares

John’s is
only one of thousands of success stories SPORT Orthopedics + Physical Therapy
patients have enjoyed. Another happy patient, Jackson, relayed in a five-star
online review that he’d reluctantly resigned himself to sitting on the bench
for the opening game of the baseball season. His ACL tear was that bad. He
scheduled an appointment with SPORT Orthopedics + Physical Therapy. “From my
first appointment to the last appointment, Dr. Berry and his staff were kind
and courteous, making a terrible injury seem very manageable,” he wrote.” It
was clear their number one priority was to help get me back to full health as
quickly as possible. Thanks to SPORT, I was back to 100% when the first pitch
was thrown. It was a pleasure to work with a team that works together, is
supportive, and genuinely cares.”

For
Athletes and the Rest of Us

All in a
day’s work for board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr.
Robert Berry. And he’s just not here for athletes either. “We’re often asked
what we do differently for professional athletes when compared with the rest
of our patients,” Dr. Berry said. “The answer is, ‘absolutely nothing’. We
offer the same state-of-the-art care with the latest technology and
cutting-edge techniques to all our patients, whether they make their living
as athletes or not.”

Dr. Berry
believes everybody deserves to live a full, happy, pain-free life. “We see
high-school athletes who might miss a college scholarship because of an
injury, and we see grandparents who can’t go on vacation with their families
because they’re in too much pain,” Dr. Berry said. “What’s your pain keeping
you from doing? We want to give you an appropriate diagnosis TODAY and begin
addressing that pain, so you can get back to doing the things that matter to
you.”

Praised by
His Patients

The SPORT
Orthopedics + Physical Therapy website at SportsMedTexas.com is replete with
patient testimonials, some from the aforementioned pro athletes who couldn’t
be more grateful to Dr. Berry for getting them back in the game. But there’s
also heartfelt thanks from retirees who’ve returned to the golf course, moms
and dads who are able to work and raise kids pain-free, and hundreds of patients
who are happy to get back to the life they love. It’s no wonder Dr. Berry
landed in the number one spot for Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine in D
Magazine’s Best People Awards and has consistently been named a Top Doc by
Living Magazine readers.

Hailed
Among His Peers

To whom does
a surgeon turn when they need orthopedic surgery? If that surgeon lives in
the DFW Metroplex, there’s a good chance it’s board-certified and
fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon Dr. Berry at SPORT Orthopedics +
Physical Therapy. For over 18 years now, Dr. Berry has been the orthopedic
surgeon of choice for local physicians and their staff, elite pro athletes,
weekend warriors, and folks just like you and me.

Orthopedic
Urgent Care

As a former
competitive athlete himself, Dr. Berry understands the desire to get back in
the game and understands how important it is to treat an athlete—and anyone
else—quickly and efficiently, to diagnose the problem and find the solution.
“If you’re a coach with an injured player, a parent with an injured child, or
you’re the one who’s been sidelined, we offer orthopedic urgent care. If
you’re injured today, we’ll see you today. And we give every patient — not
just professional athletes — professional-level
care.”

Rather than
waiting in the ER for hours to see someone who’s not an expert in orthopedic
injuries or physical therapy, you can go straight to the experts. “We offer
physical therapy in all of our locations and have the latest digital X-rays
and diagnostics to get you an appropriate diagnosis today and start the
healing immediately.” And although he’s a highly qualified surgeon, Dr. Berry
always exhausts all non-surgical options first before considering
surgery.

There When
You Need Them

With offices
in Dallas, Frisco, Prosper, and Wiley, Dr. Berry and his seasoned team offer
professional-level orthopedic care including walk-in and same-day urgent
care, Saturday hours, on-site advanced imaging, and on-site physical therapy.
A firm believer in making a difference in his community, Dr. Berry founded
Texas Youth Sports Medicine Foundation, a nonprofit that helps level the
medical “playing field” for economically-disadvantaged high-school athletes
by ensuring they have access to the accepted medical standard of care,
expertise, and treatment for their sports-related injuries, regardless of
ability to pay, so they may achieve their ultimate potential in athletics —
and in life. “We want to come alongside athletes and their families and offer
them the same care we offer elite professional athletes,” Dr. Berry said.
“Good care shouldn’t be out of reach for any athlete due to finances.”

Happily
married for 32 years, Dr. Berry is a proud father of three grown children and
seven grandchildren. He and his wife have been active in the North Texas
community since 2005 where he enjoys running, cycling on the Peloton,
traveling, and spending time with family.
