Dr. Badman has done reverse shoulder replacement surgery on both shoulders. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome on each shoulder.

Dr Badman is awesome!!! I was having shoulder pain and through ultrasound he determined I had a rotator cuff tear and needed surgery. The office staff at every level is very responsible, courteous and genuine! I was not apprehensive at all. I knew Dr. Badman has great surgical skills and fully trusted him to do what was necessary to have a full recovery! I cannot say enough how appreciative I am of him and his office for treating me with upmost respect! I am playing tennis again painfree!

I am reminded every day on the poor repairs he performed on my shoulder and arm. After an initial (20) weeks of rehab I had no strength. My arm seem to not be responding to therapy and workout. After (3) years now I only have 50% capacity total in my arm. I can only pick up or curl 1-2 pounds and are subject to severe cramp and have to set items down. Hand constantly stays 3-4 degrees colder than other hand. Winter time is unbearable and my one hand must be kept covered at all times. Never agin

Dr. Badman performed 3 1/2 hour constructive surgery on my shoulder including Rotator cuff and repositioning my bicep muscle. One year later I am back to lifting weights and working out on heavy bad. I cannot be more satisfied with Dr. Badman's expert medical work and guidance. Thank you Dr. Badman.

After speaking with Dr. Badman for a couple of minutes, I felt like I was talking to an old friend. He had excellent reviews ( which he deserves) but claimed not to be a miracle worker, nor made any promises for perfect results. My reverse shoulder replacement on my right side was done one Nov. 8, 2017, my left on Feb. 20, 2018. I can't begin to describe how happy and amazed I am with the results. I have full use of both shoulders in every direction with no pain.

I was thrilled when I was able to get Dr. Badman for my shoulder surgery. I had a torn rotor cuff,and it needed to be fixed, which he did. 7wks later I fell. I didn't just ruined what he fixed, I ruined my whole shoulder. He just finished my reverse shoulder replacement . This is not my 1st interaction with him...5 yrs ago he did a complete replacement on my right knee, and a partial on my left knee. I got an infected stitch. It was a Saturday. He came to my house to fix it!!!!

I highly recommend Dr. Badman. At the age of 76, I suffered from painful arthritis in both shoulders. In January 2017, I had a right shoulder total replacement. The surgery was so successful I had a left shoulder total replacement seven months later. Dr. Badman is wonderful. I thank him for my great range of motion.

Dr Badman did a reverse total shoulder replacement on my left shoulder on february 07/2017. I started physical therapy on February 24th, after 7 sessions ending on march 14 and doing the activities daily at home that was prescribed, I now have what I consider total mobility in the left arm, but not full strength, I will continue the exercises. (it has only been 6 weeks). Dr Badman obviously did a super job with the surgery. I now have NO PAIN. I am going to have the right shoulder done soon.

I became a patient of Dr. Badman's after i was already bone on bone in my left shoulder with quite a bit of wear to my glenoid. Dr. Badman patiently managed my pain and monitored the wear, knowing I was hesitant to have surgery. I recently had the shoulder replaced and completely trusted Dr Badman to do whatever would give me the best outcome (regular or reverse). The entire experience with doc and IU West was fantastic! Great care, education, and accessibility.

Dr. Badman has performed surgery on my elbow and currently successfully managing my pain issues relating to damaged rotator cuffs as I do not desire surgery just now. Very well pleased with his services.

Dr. Badman is Excellent! I can't say enough good about him. He took time with my husband and I to explain things. After surgery he came out and talked to me about my husband's surgery, how it went and even had pictures to show me! Wonderful bedside manner! Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Dr Badman operated on me six times. Shoulder replacements after major rotator cuff tears surgerys. He is an excellent Doctor. With the damage I had it took several steps to the final result of the reverse replacements. The last replacement was done in 2012. I am doing well with both shoulders. Shoulder surgery is difficult as is the rehab. I highly recommend Dr. Badman.

He seemed very rushed and he was way behind schedule. After my family member had surgery, he came out to talk to us in the waiting room almost 45 after my family member was out of surgery. And when he finally came out to talk to us, he had his lunch box, coat, and backpack on, ready to leave. He talked to me and my family for maybe one minute and left. He didn't ask us if we had any questions or anything. It felt like he was more ready to go home than update us on our family member.
