About

Bio

<i></i>I am a Hoosier native, born and bred in Fighting Irish country of South Bend. I attended Indiana University for both undergraduate and medical education. As an undergraduate, I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and graduated Summa Cum Laude, and, during medical school I was invited into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. I completed my orthopedic residency training at the University of Florida-Gainesville in 2005 and finished a shoulder and elbow fellowship at the Florida Orthopedic Institute in Tampa in 2006. My fellowship was performed with one of the busiest reconstructive shoulder groups in the country and I had direct mentorship under the American designer of the reverse total shoulder (Dr. Mark Frankle). I joined American Health Network in 2011 and have been able to help build a successful group providing comprehensive orthopedic and spine care. I have special interest in shoulder and elbow disorders with additional training in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, shoulder instability, total shoulder arthroplasty, reverse shoulder arthroplasty and proximal humeral fracture fixation. Over the past several years, I have had the fortune of being one of the busiest reconstructive shoulder surgeons in the state performing on average of 50-100 replacement surgeries per year (total and reverse) and over 250 arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs last year alone. In my freetime, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and my ornery three children that keep my hopping. In addition to his medical practice, Dr. Badman continues to be heavily involved in academics, having authored over 15 peer reviewed publications with special emphasis on proximal humeral fracture fixation and reverse shoulder arthroplasty. He served as an associate clinical professor at the Indiana University Terre Haute campus assisting in orthopedic education for the family practice residency and currently holds a volunteer faculty appointment for the Indiana University School of Medicine assisting with the shoulder and elbow education of the orthopedic residency program. He has given lectures and talks on subjects pertaining to his publications and expertise at various local and national meetings. He continues to stay at the cutting edge of shoulder and elbow reconstructive surgery and routinely educates other surgeons on the newest developments in shoulder replacement procedures through regional and national training courses.
