Best doctor in town for arthroscopic hip surgery, if you are an athlete and have groin ,hip or leg pain this is the doctor you want to see. I was diagnosed FAI which not to many doctors in Florida area are aware off. DC Bynum gave my life back. Not only knowledgeable and professional but very patient and compassionate when a patient is going thru so much pain or discomfort.

I had bilateral labrum repairs within a year of each other. I was very happy with results of the first one and didn't hesitate to come back to Dr Bynum for the second when I knew it was time. He's personable, well-trained, and very good at what he does. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Bynum is an amazing surgeon with excellant people/bedside manor. My most recent experience with him was with my son. Dr. Bynum agreed to see him with one phone call even though he is only 15. My son had partially tore his ACL playing baseball and Dr Bynum and his staff took great care and time with my son. I am happy to report that without surgery and only physical therapy, custom knee brace and time (6 weeks) he has fully recovered. Surgery would have been traumatic and took 6 to 8 months.

Just had surgery performed by Dr. Bynum and am impressed with his skill, knowledge and professionalism. Trust his judgement and appreciate that he listens to you. It's a busy practice but rarely felt that he or staff were rushing me. Have recommended him and will do so again.
in Ft Myers, FL |
Dr. Bynum has excellent patient skills, always sitting down with the patient and going over all aspects of an injury and recommended treatment. He and his staff are friendly and compassionate with excellent listening skills. I saw Dr Bynum for what I felt was a torn meniscus. It turned out to be so and a little more. Dr. Bynum performed a laparoscopic procedure cleaning it all up. The procedure was an overwhelming success and I am totally pain free. Thank you Dr. Bynum!

Dr. Bynum and his staff quickly diagnosed my shoulder problem and referred me to physical therapy where I received excellent help.
in Felda,FL |
I had a very good experience with Dr. Bynum. He is very professional and has good bedside manners. I was very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. And if I ever needed surgery in the future he would be the one I would see.
Ft Myers, FL |
Wonderful, gentle doctor with an excellent bedside manner. I almost don't want to recommend him so that I can always access him easily! I don't want him to get too popular!
Lehigh Acres, FL |
My experience with Dr. Bynum was amazing. He is professional, but also caring and treats you more like a friend than just a patient. He never rushed us out of the room and always explained things thoroughly. After being turned away by another doctor in the same practice, Dr. Bynum knew exactly what was wrong and when I needed to proceed with surgery. Within a few more months I will be completely healed and I know Dr. Bynum was the right choice for me.
in Sanibel, FL |
Friendly but professional. Explained surgery thoroughly. Excellent surgical result with rotator cuff. Recovery smoother and less painful than expected. Great Doc!
in Ft Myers, FL |
I was having difficulty lifting a cup of coffee and rising my arms high enough to comb my hair. After receiving an injection in my shoulders I feel like a new man. I have a new flexibility that was beyond my expectations. I am ready to play golf again. Thank you, Dr. Bynum
