Severed Bi-cep at elbow and deteriorated rotator cuff was my diagnosis. Found this Orthopedic Surgeon through recommendation of a co-worker. After my first visit this Dr told me he could fix me up 100% back to wear I was before my injury and it would require (2) separate surgeries. Two years later I have only half the strength and capacity in my left arm before the injury occurred and now it appears as if my rotatory cuuf condition is on a down hill slide.

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!

I had a reverse shoulder replacement and he did a great job! Pain free!!
in Camarillo, CA |
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.
