You as a patient have the right to the proper care of your shoulder condition. You also have the right to be comfortable and knowledgeable in the recommended treatment course with your surgeon. If you have seen an orthopedic specialist for your shoulder problem and surgery has been advised, you may contact Dr. Badman if you would like a second opinion. Dr. Badman is one of the leading Midwest shoulder specialists and is the only Shoulder and Elbow fellowship trained surgeon in the state of Indiana. He is also one of three practicing Indiana orthopedic surgeons with membership in the prestigious American Shoulder and Elbow Society. Membership in ASES, which has only 423 members worldwide, is by invitation only and based on strict academic and clinical requirements. Dr. Badman welcomes the opportunity to review your MRI results or medical records and provide you with his expert opinion on the best solution for your shoulder problem.
If you are inquiring from out-of-town, either continental or international, Dr. Badman’s courteous and experienced staff can also assist you in your travel needs with regards to local transportation and hotel accommodations. They will also coordinate your clinical consultation with Dr. Badman and any additional studies that may be needed on arrival (blood work/xrays/MRI).
