My approach to treating patients
Dr. Benjamin Busfield specializes in arthroscopy, care of athletes, and sports-related injuries. His interests include injuries to the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. He completed an additional year of Fellowship training at the prestigious Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, the birth place of the Tommy-John elbow surgery. Here he learned advanced skills in sports medicine and arthroscopy for surgery of complex injuries and he has a special focus on minimmally invasive surgical techniques.
As a general orthopedist, he is able to offer the entire spectrum of care. Dr. Busfield has extensive training in joint replacement and fracture care. He performs total hip, total knee, partial knee, and shoulder replacements, as well as revision surgeries. He sees patients of all ages, including children. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, as well as Xiaflex injections (for Depuytren's contracture), are given in clinic.
He has researched, written and published several papers in the peer-reviewed literature regarding sports medicine and joint replacement. Recently, his research interests were focused on rotator cuff arthroscopic repair and shoulder surgery. His research has focused on ACL injuries in the National Basketball Association and the use of pain pumps after shoulder surgery. In 2012, Dr. Busfield gave a presentation on his pain pump research at the annual Western Orthopedic Association meeting.
Dr. Busfield is board certified as a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS) and is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery (AAOS). Furthermore, he has been awarded the Certificate of Additional Qualification (CAQ) for Orthopedic Sports Medicine.
He specializes in Worker's Compensation injuries and treatment. He no longer performs QME's.
Throughout his training, he has had a special interest in caring for the injured athlete. During his Fellowship, Dr. Busfield assisted in the orthopedic care of Los Angeles professional sports teams including the Dodgers, Lakers, Ducks, Sparks and Kings. In addition, he served as a Loyola Marymount University collegiate team physician.
Currently he serves on the medical staff for St. Mary's College, as well as local Antioch area schools.
