Bachman recognized as Outstanding Young Engineer in Bioengineering

Dr. Daniel Bachman was presented with the 2018 Outstanding Young Engineer in Bioengineering during the annual Speed School homecoming dinner held October 26 at the Brown Hotel.

Bachman graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Bioengineering in 2009 where he received the Jerry and Pat Sturgeon Academic Excellence Award.  He graduated from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 2013.  Subsequently, he completed a Research Fellowship in Biomechanics in 2015 at the Mayo Clinic Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in Rochester, Minnesota.  He then completed an internship at The University of Colorado – Denver and now is in his third year of Orthopaedic residency at the University of Missouri – Kansas City.

From his co-operative experience at Louisville-based SCR, Bachman is a named co-author on a patented heart ablation device.

Performing biomechanics and orthopedic research, focused on shoulder and elbow arthroplasty devices and conditions, he has co-authored 12 peer-reviewed publications and given 6 podium presentations at National and International Meetings.

While at the University of Missouri – Kansas City in coordination with the Mechanical Engineering and Orthopaedic research team, he has translated computational kinematic modeling of the anteromedial coronoid fracture and associated posteromedial rotatory incongruity of the elbow into the clinically useful understanding of ligamentous and bony reconstructions.  This work was nominated as a finalist in 2018 for the prestigious Charles S. Neer Award.

Societal involvement includes past- president of the Kentucky Beta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, member of the Orthopaedic Research Society, Mayo Elbow Club, UMKC Houses Staff Council and University of Louisville Alumni Club. Daniel has participated in medical mission trips to Kenya, Ethiopia, and Egypt.  He also enjoys hiking, snow-skiing, volleyball and watching the University of Louisville athletics.
