Dr. Bushnell currently serves as chairman of the orthopedic department, and his practice focuses on knee and shoulder surgery. He is a team physician for the Rome Braves, Berry College, Trion High School, the Rome/Floyd County SWAT Team, and the U.S. Ski Team. He remains active in orthopedic clinical research, and he has published over forty articles in the orthopedic literature.
In 2019, Dr. Bushnell has received positive press for his groundbreaking work with a medical research study for the Regeneten Bioinductive Implant - a “patch” used in shoulder surgeries to repair torn rotator cuffs. The implant is about the size of a postage stamp that’s used during minimally-invasive surgeries for partial rotator cuff tears. Dr. Bushnell has completed more than 150 surgeries with the implant that integrates biologically into the injured tendon and accelerates healing and strengthening. Recently, Dr. Bushnell appeared on a WSBTV segment, “The Daily 2” regarding his work with the Regeneten Bioinductive Implant, and was also featured in the July 2019 edition of V3 Magazine and ReadV3.com.
