About Dr. Busfield
Beginning March 2015, Dr. Busfield will remain in the East Bay Area with a new group with new office locations. Dr. Busfield is starting the Orthopedic division of Bay Area Surgical Specialists (BASS). As a new member of this prestigious surgery group centered in the East Bay, office locations will be announced to include Antioch, Walnut Creek, and Lamorinda. He now has privileges at the Sutter and John Muir hospitals throughout the area. All patients are welcome during this time of change as it is anticipated that Dr. Busfield will be on all the same insurance plans, as well as new plans.
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 for sports medicine and arthroscopy 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 numerous papers in the peer-reviewed literature regarding sports medicine and joint replacement. Recently, his research interests were focused on rotator cuff arthroscopic repair, pain pumps, 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.
