Dr.Bynum performed surgery on my left wrist to remove a ganglionic cyst. He and the entire staff were exceptional. The whole experience could not have gone any better.

excellent physician... highly recommended
Chapel Hill, NC |
I have been treated by Dr. Bynum for the past three years for hand problems, including two successful hand surgeries. He consistently has provided excellent patient-centered medical care. Dr. Bynums's doctor/patient communication skills are excellent as well; he listens attentively, provides clear and concise explanations of medical issues and answers patients' questions with patience and thoroughness. His interpersonal manner is respectful and kind. I recommend Dr. Bynum most highly.

Dr Bynum is amazing and gifted not only as a renown surgeon, but genuinely cares about his patients! I traveled to Chapel Hill, referred by my hometown surgeon, after no other options. That day, including the Volar hand procedure, (NOT EVER DONE IN MY CITY-ONLY heard of) he performed days later, exceeded All my expectations! Dr Bynum and his wonderful staff, will always be my heroes and Dr Bynum, my Quarterback! My hand and fingers today, are due to Dr Bynum! Thank you!
