As a new member of this prestigious surgery group centered in the East Bay, he will have 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 anticipates remaining 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 injemctions (for Depuytren's contracture), are given in clinic. As a locally trained surgeon, Dr. Busfield can direct care to well known local sub-specialists for complex problems as needed.

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.

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, but has retired as a QME.

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 Loyola Marymount University and St. Mary's University collegiate team medical staff.

Dr. Busfield's patients are predominantly from Antioch, Brentwood, Lamorinda and its surrounding communities such as Discovery Bay, Walnut Creek, Concord, Pleasant Hill and Concord, however, patients also often travel from the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area.
