Edina, Mn |
I saw Dr. Buss for a 2nd opinion after an Orthopedic surgeon had told me I needed a reverse total shoulder replacement. After reading my X Rays, Dr. Buss said we're going to start with a physical therapy program to see if we can avoid surgery, and if that doesn't work we'll see how much we can save to hopefully avoid replacement and a reversal would be way too limiting for the rest of your life. His approach and concern for you is amazing! He and his staff couldn't have been nicer!!

Dr. Buss performed total shoulder arthroplasty on each shoulder. Recovery time seemed quick. His choice of physical therapists was wonderful. Dr. Buss is very personable and listens to my concerns, asking astute questions. His care team is also knowledgeable and friendly.

Ow! Rotator cuff & associated muscle tears. After referral and extensive research, he's the best shoulder surgeon (per Consumer Reports' Consumer Checkbook rating of Dr.s by other Dr.s & patients, he has highest rating of ALL orthopedic surgeons in MSP). He and experienced well honed team did an excellent job on right shoulder surgery and recovery. I later needed left shoulder rotator cuff surgery and again they did an excellent job. For years he was the shoulder and elbow surgeon MN Twins.

I have recommended Dr.Bus many times since my 1st open shoulder repair in 1995. Since then I have had two more repairs, by Dr.Bus. First, the other shoulder, then the first repair let go, because I had been so active on it over the decade or longer time since the 1st repair. I am still similarly active, and with cross country skiing, cycling, and a daily strength workout. I would recommend Dr.Bus to anyone who has had a shoulder injury (as I have in the past).

I had a total shoulder replacement done in 12/14. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I awoke from surgery with no pain at all. The whole process was very easy and well worth it. My shoulder works and feels normal. I never thought you could have this done without pain, but I did. Thanks again Dr Buss

Dr. Buss is not only gifted with his knowledge he is also a genuine person who will not sugar coat your prognosis. I went to him with a life changing shoulder injury that left me without much hope of a positive outlook. He gave me hope and a new lease with my shoulder. He performed the Hail Mary of procedures and the results were off the chart!
