Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Brad Bushnell recognized for research study

Dr. Brad Bushnell of Harbin Clinic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has received positive press for his 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. You can watch the video below and read the story here.


“The best results from the implant are in the partial tears where the rotator cuff is thinned out,” says Dr. Bushnell. “But it seems to speed up healing of all types of tears.”


As far as his research goes, Dr. Bushnell says he’s thrilled that Harbin Clinic not only participates in national research studies, but that Harbin garners such positive results for it.


“It’s wonderful that in our small city, Harbin Clinic can be a national leader in research. By providing care for our patients and doing this research trial, we’re helping thousands of people out there we will never meet in places that have never heard of Rome, Georgia. It’s pretty cool.”
