  • I have had shoulder pain for many years and was apprehensive about surgery. Dr Badman performed a reverse shoulder replacement for me on September 17. After the surgery my shoulder hurt less than it did before without taking pain medication. I don't know why I waited so long in getting the procedure done.

  • I am 65 years old. I had shoulder pain in both shoulders for many years. I had to give up my love of playing softball because of the pain of osteoarthritis. Dr. Badman did reverse shoulder replacement on both shoulders. I can’t express the difference it has made. I am pain free for the first time in years.

  • After years of pain, Dr Badman convinced me with an ultra-sound that I indeed had a tear in the rotator cuff and explained the surgery to me. Went just as he described. Physical therapy and time have put me back to almost normal after a few short months. Thanks Dr Badman and staff!

  • Dr. Badman did a reverse shoulder replacement for me on Jan. 15, 2019. I could not be more please with the results. In my case, since I had put off the surgery for so long, I had almost immediate relief from pain and was off of prescription pain medications in less than a week

  • I had a torn labrum repair and a biceps tenodesis procedure done on my right shoulder in March of 2019. I am just about 4 months post-op and I have completed all of my scheduled physical therapy. I am back doing all the things I love, still taking it a bit easy with certain motions, but experiencing no pain at all.
