  • I went to the good Dr. Badman when he with AHN and I had made the decision for him to be my surgeon from that point forward.. I know that he is well trained and skilled surgeon.. He also, communicates very well..I look forward to him repairing my rotator cuff on my left shoulder and giving me back full ROM without pain. He also, has an impeccable reputation with his colleagues and peer group..

  • I was told by another doctor that there was nothing they could do for my shoulder. Dr Badman said there was a plan of action we could take. We discussed options and I felt he listened to me and will definitely help me along my journey.

  • I was referred to Dr. Badman indirectly/discretely by a physician at another practice. At that practice, a procedure was recommended for my shoulder, but the doctor at that practice who performed the procedure was not available to see me for over 2 weeks. In the interim, I called Dr. Badman and was scheduled to be seen within 2 business days. I found him to be very thorough in his explanation of the recommended procedure, including the risks/benefits and expected outcomes. I subsequently saw the surgeon at the original practice, who recommended a totally different procedure. I called and asked to speak with Dr. Badman about this discrepancy. He personally called me back within 30 minutes, and spent 30 minutes explaining the pros/cons of the 2 different procedures. He also gave me guidance regarding the lack of urgency for either of the procedures, and told me to call back with any additional questions. This kind of patient-centered responsiveness is how medicine should be practiced!

  • In 2017 I had a shoulder replacement by another Orthopedic. In 2018 my range of motion became restricted. My wife researched online and watched a video of Dr Badman, who at the time was located in Avon, IN. We learned from this about him, his training and experience with Shoulder Reversal. Made an appointment and had surgery in May 2018. Would definitely recommend Dr Badman and we traveled 179 mi roundtrip to appointment now he's located in Fishers IN. Once you find someone so dedicated to his patients and their well being and go the extra mile for you, you will too!

  • Everyone that we gave information to was professional. The dr. was very professional and explained what was wrong and what could be done and the dangers of surgery. He said he would give a steroid shot to hopefully help with the pain. He was very careful even when he gave the shot because of the danger of nicking an artery or muscle if he went to deep. I feel he was very professional and helped understand the situation.

  • Dr Badman and his Resident were refreshing; when I went to the ER for the original evaluation after the accident, I felt 'empty' and 'placated'. This visit however, I felt that I was treated well, educated and my plight was studied and the best course of action taken. It was a collaboration between patient and medical personnel; I feel confident that I will be treated well and my future questions and concerns will be addressed. Very satisfied with the visit. Auxillary staff was very caring and professional also. They leave me with the feeling they will take care of me pre and post op and I'll be a 'poster child' for their practice!

  • Five years ago I had a total shoulder replacement performed by Dr. Badman. He is an incredible surgeon. His skill and personal interactions with his patients engender confidence and a sense of security, that as a patient, you are in the best hands possible. His assistant Brad is also an asset to the practice.

  • After experiencing pain in my right shoulder in 2013, my General Practitioner performed an evaluation to establish my range of motion, and determined that my condition warranted an X-ray. Upon consulting with the radiologist, my GP referred me to Dr. Badman. Best referral ever! Dr. Badman and his staff were very professional and the treatment that I received was exceptional. As it turned out, I had a torn rotator cuff, as well as torn bicep. He successfully repaired both defects, provided guidance/support throughout my 12 month rehabilitation, and thankfully I regained my full range of motion and strength. I even joke about the fact that it feels like Dr. Badman put a 20 year old shoulder in my now 50 year old body. 2021 and my right shoulder and bicep feel great! Dr. Badman is professional, highly respected, and the only physician entrusted to repair my left (old goat) shoulder should any issues or injuries ever take place. 10/10 definitely recommend

The surgery itself was meticulous and recovery was uneventful. Most of all, he partnered with me; an approach that I appreciated and responded to the best. I defintely am happy that he is taking care of my shoulder issues.

I have full range of motion with no pain. He performed surgery on my right shoulder this year, and I'm well on the path to recovery. He listened to my concerns. It's great when you have trust and confidence in your doctor.

  • Dr. Badman has replaced both of my shoulders. I was only on pain meds for 5 days for both operations. My first shoulder replacement was just over one and a half years ago. The scar barely shows, and I have full range of motion with that shoulder. The second shoulder replacement is on its way to be just as successful. I have had no problems from the surgeries. Dr. Badman and his staff are very caring. I highly recommend Dr. Badman.

Absolutely no pain and full range of motion. Right now I am 3 weeks post-op on my left shoulder surgery and so far it is on the same trajectory. I would recommend him to anyone who is contemplating having shoulder surgery.

I used to work for Christian eye surgeons who are the best in their field and I know how important it is to have this kind of physician. Dr. Badman has a protocol he has developed to help you before and after your surgery He has classes and videos for you to watch. He is excellent, but so is his staff and associates. His staff and operating team have one desire - help get you well through and after surgery. Now I am off to PT. Hope this part of the adventure goes as well as it has so far

He is a skilled surgeon who has my best interest in mind. He and his entire team were very professional while showing a caring attitude. He answered all of my questions before and after surgery. My recovery with the left shoulder is progressing very well, I think ahead of the recovery from my right shoulder replacement. I would highly recommend him for shoulder pain and/or replacement.

  • 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 wish that I had done it some time ago. Dr Badman and staff were the greatest. They even had a really neat app for my phone to keep track of my healing process. I very highly recommend Dr Badman for anyone that has shoulder pain!

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. I can play softball again but more than that I can keep up with my 8 year old grandson, Zayde. Thanks Dr Badman.

  • 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 am six months out from surgery and have full range of motion to the front, side and and even up to the middle of my back. I am working on strengthening now but couldn't be happier with my results.

I am back doing all the things I love, still taking it a bit easy with certain motions, but experiencing no pain at all. I anticipate being back to full strength in another couple of months. I would recommend Dr. Badman to anyone experiencing shoulder issues. Very professional, knowledgeable, and highly skilled!

Had some pain after nerve block wore of for about 12 hrs. and that was it. What a surprise that was after all the horror stories I had heard about this surgery. Dr. Badman is a great surgeon and wonderful person. Explained the procedure well and the outcome was exactly as he said. I was able to return to work after 10 weeks and continue to gain strength and range of motion. i would highly recommend Dr. Badman and his wonderful staff.

  • Finding I needed another shoulder replacement after having one 2 years ago & getting one doctors opinion, we researched the internet and found Dr Badman. Watching his video and seeing his credentials, I made an appointment. I was informed I would need a Shoulder Reversal Replacemet. After much needed surgery, I recovered much faster with this replacement than the first! I was able to discontinue pain meds within four days after surgery! My range of motion is greater this time around than first! I HIGHLY recommend Dr Badman & staff!

  • I came across Dr. Badman's excellent ratings and reviews while researching surgeons to do my reverse shoulder replacement's. The old saying came to mind; " if it sounds too good to be true it probably is not ", however this is not so with Dr. Badman. He is an exceptionally great surgeon and person, and has earned and deserves every positive comment made about him. I am 75 years old and have worked heavy construction all my life. My shoulder problems began over 30 years ago, naturally deteriorated and became more painful as the years passed . Two surgeons told me my shoulders were too bad to do anything with. The "Golden Years & Uncle Arthur" raising their ugly heads making the pain unbearable. I spoke with 3 other surgeons about the reverse shoulder replacement but they said there would be a 6 to 9 month recovery period and I would only be able to raise my arms to the top of my head. After talking with Dr. Badman for a couple of minutes, I felt like I was talking to an old friend. He explained everything completely and answered all of my questions. He didn't claim to be able to work miracles nor did he make any outlandish promises for perfect results. Right shoulder was done on Nov. 8th, 2017 and 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 my arms in every direction with absolutely no pain. What Dr, Badman did for me was tenfold better that what I had expected or hoped for. In my mind, Dr. Badman is a miracle worker. I would recommend him 100%.

  • Wow!! I wish that had been available when I needed rotator cuff surgery. After having rotator cuff surgery, reverse shoulder replacement surgery was required. Dr Badman did my replacement surgery. I am quite pleased with the outcome.

  • I had rotator cuff surgeries on both of my shoulders in 2015.

    The first in February and the second in September. Friends I have talked with who have had these surgeries say it is worst thing they have ever experienced. After my 2 surgeries I tell these friends that perhaps they chose the wrong surgeon. By following his instructions and physical therapy protocols I have had little discomfort and and healing nicely.

    I cannot give a more heartfelt and sincere testimonial on behalf of Dr. Badman. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have given a big part of my life back to me.

    Anyone considering shoulder surgery should definitely consider him. Keep up the good work Doc!

  • Best decision and an awesome doctor and staff! I couldn’t even reach up to adjust my rear view mirror pre-surgery. I can reach overhead for the first time in years. Utterly amazing and more movement than I dreamed I would ever have.

    Here are some secrets to make the process much easier!

    Expect to walk into the surgery room and climb onto the table yourself. How weird is that? Say hi to everyone! They’re going to make you a new shoulder. And you’re going to be sitting up, which makes total sense but isn’t something that you’re thinking about.

    When you wake up, your shoulder and arm are stiff and immobile but they don’t hurt. I thought I would wake up in terrible pain but that wasn’t the case at all. You’ll be in a Napolean pose in the “immobilizer” (a sling with a cushion), that holds you nice and snug. It was simply unfamiliar.

    The shoulder muscles hurt–they’ve been moved around–but the shoulder itself doesn’t. And if, like me, you had lived with pain, what you will deal with post-surgery is a cakewalk. Take the meds, but know that you’re finally on the way up, not down, and this is a good hurt.

    Bring clothes for post-surgery that you can put on with one arm! At the last minute I thought about this and brought loose yoga pants, a loose-fitting tank top and loose cardigan. The physical therapists will teach you how to dress before you leave–and then make sure that you can do it on your own. Good-by, tight jeans. (Oh, and forget about a bra for a few days. Its just not happening. A sports bra that you can wiggle over your head and arm are great after a week.)

    Sleeping is difficult. It just is. You cannot comforably lie down. My brother rented a recliner for the first few weeks and I wish I had done the same. I slept sitting on the sofa with my arm propped up with pillows.

    Commit to physical therapy with a good attitude. You will be absolutely thrilled with your progress if you just follow instructions.

    I hope your outcome is as great as mine! Everyone is rooting for you! Thank you so much, Dr. Badman, Brad and staff. You guys rock!

  • Please accept my thanks for repairing a shoulder that was operated on four times prior! I wish I found you earlier… it would have prevented me from having years of pain & suffering. Your procedure has resulted in me being “pain free” and accomplishing my goal of being able to swim again. I cannot thank you enough.

    Your office recommended the ATI office on the Southside and that was an excellent choice for me. Jon Ramos and Shradha Choudhary only worked on me. I would recommend them highly as I do you.

    Again, thank you for helping a 70 year old man get new hope.

  • I highly recommend Dr. Badman, for rotator cuff surgery or any shoulder injury. He explained the procedure thoroughly. He followed up personally. I have never waited more than 5 minutes for any appointments. My shoulder is doing great following his plan has made my recovery pain free, for me!!

  • I wanted to thank Dr. Badman and his staff for an excellent outcome. I had a partial replacement that never got rid of my pain. I was worried that I might have to live with that pain the rest of my life. I was very depressed and was giving up the things I enjoyed including lifting my grandbabbies. Dr Badman revised my shoulder to a reversal. My rotor cuff was in bad shape. I am now five years out from the revision and continue to be pain free other than the occasional soreness. I can’t thank this man enough.
