Med Center Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine provides complete care for patients who have bone and joint problems caused by disease, disorder or injury. Don’t let orthopaedic problems slow you down or change the way you move through life. Follow along to meet a few of our current providers here at Med Center Health.
Dr. Sameer Badarudeen is one of our amazing orthopaedic providers here at Med Center Health! He has been with the organization for 5 years and is fellowship trained in joint replacement surgery. He is also an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Kentucky, where he continues to lead research in the field.
Dr. Badarudeen often describes orthopaedic surgery as “cosmetic surgery not for your looks but for your quality of life.” By collaborating with the entire Med Center Health orthopaedic team and focusing on his individual field of expertise, he is able to provide patients with the best care possible.
Deep down he is a news-junkie and history/politics buff, and in his free time you can find him watching documentaries, fishing, biking, and playing badminton.
If you need a joint replacement, he is the doctor to lean on here in Southcentral Kentucky. Visit https://medcenterhealth.org/location/med-center-health-orthopaedics-sports-medicine/ or call (270) 780-2750 to schedule your visit today!
Dr. Abigail DeBusk is a prominent piece of the Med Center Health Orthopaedics & Sport Medicine Team. She has been part of the department for nearly 4 years and specializes in sports medicine and non-operative orthopaedics. Dr. DeBusk also leads the focus on the bone health clinic and ultrasound guided joint injections.
Dr. DeBusk grew up participating in sport teams so when the time came to decide her path in medicine, sports medicine seemed to be the perfect fit. It has allowed her to work with all populations from the very young to the very old, and her goal is to help each patient remain active in order to live their best quality of life.
Outside the office she enjoys all forms of exercise, reading, cooking, watching sports, and spending time with friends and family!

Dr. Desai is in a very unique position since he specializes in three different key areas, which gives him the opportunity to see patients of all ages and a wide variety of problems! He is very family oriented and believes that patients going through treatment and surgery need to lean on family as it will help with the recovery process.
In his free time, Dr. Desai enjoys playing tennis and spending quality time with his wife and six-year-old son!
