A board-certified orthopaedic surgeon based in the Omaha area since 2004, Dr. Urban specializes in the diagnosis, non-operative management, and surgical treatment of hip and knee conditions. During his fellowship, he trained under world-renowned hip and knee replacement surgeons Charles Engh, Gerry Engh, C. Anderson Engh, and James McAuley.  He has published numerous research articles and book chapters on hip and knee conditions and his current research focus is in non-opioid pain solutions for joint replacement patients. His practice focuses on total care of the hip and knee joints, from soft tissue injuries through customized joint replacement (including anterior, posterior and lateral hip techniques) and revision.

For as busy as your office was I thought things hummed along pretty well. I just wished I could have gotten in sooner and it didn't take another month to get my steroid shot.
