Research and Presentations

During residency, Dr. Bushnell became one of the most-frequently published orthopedic residents to train at the University of North Carolina. Even though he is currently engaged in private practice, he continues his efforts to improve patient care through ongoing clinical research, writing, publication, speaking, and other traditionally “academic” engagements. This page highlights Dr. Bushnell’s extensive research-related accomplishments.
