First Quarter 2021



Message from Alejandro Badia, M.D., F.A.C.S.




I am certain that many of us within the different sectors of DoralDOC (Doral Orthopedic Clinic) are relieved that 2020 came to an end. Whether in our personal, family or professional lives, we have all been faced with challenges, but we persevered and now face a hopeful 2021.


At Badia Hand to Shoulder, we realize our role within this unique orthopedic ecosystem, situated in a growing, business friendly city that is a new epicenter of Miami-Dade County, a region that will eventually benefit from the pandemic, given the infusion of Northeast talent and capital. We will be happy to serve these “transplants”, fellow New Yorkers in my case, as well as our increasingly key role in solving complex issues of the upper extremity in patients from this entire hemisphere, Europe and even Asia.


The one-stop shopping care that these patients receive is contingent upon many strong components, whether diagnostic imaging, surgical care at Surgery Center at Doral, and the vital rehabilitation that occurs across the hall at OrthoNOW Rehab.


Our innovative emergency walk-in center, OrthoNOW® allows many local patients direct access to ALL these vital components of musculoskeletal care.


Our challenge continues to be awareness, not the delivery of care, including our award winning OrthoNOW® app with its unique On My Way NOW™ feature or the new OrthoChat™ function which allows clinicians and staff to communicate and better facilitate this care. Help us overcome that challenge and let’s make it a year to remember in healthcare delivery.


For those who read my book, #HealthcareFromTheTrenches, the challenges and our innovations are highlighted, and I welcome your response and feedback.

COVID-19 / Friendly Reminder


What BHS, ON, ON Rehab & SCD centers are doing to keep associate and patients safe during COVID-19:


  • Reconfigured waiting room for social distancing.

  • Everyone must wear a mask.

  • Patients are not allowed to enter the office wearing gloves.

  • Only 6 patients in waiting room at one time.

  • No guest or children in waiting room or exam rooms (unless child is the patient, parent / guardian will be allowed).

  • If waiting room is at capacity, any additional patients will be asked to wait in their car or outside until they are called to return.

  • Scheduling some non-urgent visit via telemedicine to minimize the potential spread of COVID 19 and maintain social distancing while we provide orthopedic care.

News / Improvements / Novelties


What is new:

  • CTM - The central concept of use of CTM is simply that a “biologic issue requires a biologic solution”.


    They create viable ExtraCellular Matrix (ECM) structural tissue implants and injectable solutions to cover, supplement, or replace damaged or inadequate tissue at the surgical site or area of pain.  Left unchecked, inadequate or damaged tissue is prone to inflammation, pain, poor remodeling, and scar formation.


    CTM is now available, off the shelf, for similar indications as you would use PRP, the difference being that blood does not need to be drawn or spun, and the patient can be offered an immediate solution albeit at a higher price than simple PRP due to its concentration of growth factors, the placental source, and efficacy.

    For more information here’s a quick physician presentation and we’d be happy to speak live at your convenience.



  • Kate’s new baby – We are so happy for our new addition! Congratulations on the birth of Kate’s baby boy AJ.
