Practice Overview

Eric C. Busse, MD, is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with expertise in primary and revision joint replacement.  His surgical interests include complex primary hip and knee replacement, partial and total knee replacement, and minimally invasive surgical techniques including direct anterior total hip arthroplasty.  He is also interested in trauma care and surgical management of a variety of fractures in both lower and upper extremities.

Dr. Busse is a Minnesota native and grew up in Woodbury, Minnesota.  He moved to Northfield Minnesota to attend Saint Olaf College for his undergraduate degree in chemistry and mathematics.  He then moved to Omaha, Nebraska and received his medical training at Creighton University School of Medicine.  From there, he traveled to Detroit, Michigan to complete his residency at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine.  After this course, he returned home to finish his Fellowship in Adult Reconstruction at the University of Minnesota.  Most recently, Dr. Busse spent the first six years of his career working as an attending surgeon with the Mayo Clinic Health system in Mankato.

Outside of work, Dr. Busse enjoys spending time with his wife and two children.  They enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, and other fun things Minnesota has to offer. He has spent his fair share of hours coaching hockey and spent five years as an assistant coach with the Mankato High School lacrosse team. When weather chases him inside, you may find Dr. Busse reading a good science fiction novel.

Kristi B.

Dr. Busse is a wonderful provider and a caring man. He helped me get my life back after I had a terrible experience with a previous surgeon. He listens to you and really wants to help you. I am now driving 140 miles round trip just to keep him as my provider. I recommend Dr. Busse to everyone.
