I live an active lifestyle and the pain I’d been experiencing in my shoulder and knee was severely limiting my ability to play with my kids and was hindering workouts to the point I couldn’t do many of the exercises. At my first appointment, Dr. Byington’s examination of both my shoulder and knee was thorough and he explained in clear detail not just what his findings were, but what other more severe issues might look and feel like if I’d had them, completely setting my mind at ease. He presented all of this in a manner I could easily understand and even practically applied it to my workouts. I can’t thank Dr. Byington and his staff enough for the level of care I received.

Dr. Byington is a great doctor! After dealing with some knee problems for almost 2 years...I switched ortho docs and came to Prairie ortho. In two visits, he has diagnosed me, has mapped out my recovery plan, and has given me 100% hope that I can get back to all the physical activity that I've been missing so much! Absolutely love this place and the care I've received so far.

Dr. Byington was the second Ortho Surgeon I saw in Lincoln, NE. I left the first doctor after being highly disappointed with his quality of care. Seeing Dr. Byington was like night and day difference in the quality of care. He took the time to actually show me the Xrays and explain the break as well as acting like he truly cared about me and my recovery. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is an outstanding doctor.
