TH (International Society for Sport Traumatology of the Hand), returns to Bahamas, this time to Freeport invited for a Medical Conference. Dr. Badia has recently performed three successful surgeries on the renowned biker Guilherme Berg (GUI BERG).

“In 2010, I broke my right collarbone in the middle of the championship and I thought my year was over! I went back to see Dr. Badia, who six months earlier treated successfully my broken right wrist. He scheduled my surgery for the next day in his state of the art facility. One month and a half later I was racing again…. It was one of my best years in motorcycle racing so far; I won the Middleweight and Heavyweight Super Sport class, Middleweight Superbike class, CCS National Race of the Champions!! This year I broke my collarbone again! This time was the left one… Due to last year’s excellent results I went straight back to Dr. Badia’s center “again”. This time the fracture was much worse and still, barely a month later I’m back on the bike! – Affirms Mr. Berg.

Dr. Badia says – “ It is extremely satisfactory when a professional athlete come to see me. It is imperative for them to be appropriately treated, to heal and go back to their intense routine. It is my challenge and my passion to succeed.” – Badia has a long history of treating high level tennis and golf competitors, NFL and NBA athletes. Dr. Badia has just been nominated one of the top 45 great hand and upper extremity surgeons to know by Becker’s Orthopedic & Spine Review.
