ATLANTA, April 16, 2024 ~ Atlanta, GA - After overcoming severe knee arthritis and undergoing a knee replacement, world-ranked doubles tennis player Joe Perdue is back in the game and aiming for even greater success. The Atlanta native, who has been ranked number one in the world with his partner Oren Motevassel for the past few years, was sidelined by knee pain and struggled to maintain his competitive edge. Despite trying various treatments such as cortisone, stem cell, and Platelet-Rich Plasma injections, Perdue was eventually told that a knee replacement was necessary.

However, Perdue's determination to return to the court led him to seek out the expertise of Dr. Richard Berger at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush in Chicago. Dr. Berger is renowned for his minimally invasive hip and knee replacements that result in quick and effective recoveries for his patients.
