Notable Heroes in Health Care: Dr. Hasnain Bawaadam

Class of 2022

Dr. Hasnain Bawaadam, medical director of the pulmonology division, respiratory services and critical care at Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha, cares for critically ill patients in the intensive care unit, while also working in the pulmonary intervention unit, where he specializes in advanced robotic bronchoscopy.

“Dr. Bawaadam is an innovator, passionate about finding new best practices in the pulmonary specialty. He recently developed a method to help surgeons find the smallest nodules by marking them with a fiducial coil prepped with green dye placed at the time of biopsy,” said Annette Guye-Kordus, coordinator of public affairs for south Wisconsin at Advocate Health.

He is sharing this procedure with colleagues through professional conferences and published papers. 

Bawaadam completed fellowships in pulmonary medicine at Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University, where he currently serves as associate professor of medicine. He completed fellowships in interventional pulmonology at the University of California San Francisco and in Critical Care Medicine at St. Louis University School of Medicine.
