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.

This past experience was the worst. The wait was over 30 minutes, which is not your standard. I have been with Ortho Nebraska for 2 years and have always experienced timely service. I recognize there are bad and busy days, it just happens. Dr. Urban and the NP are fabulous, and worth the wait.

My appointment was at 2:00pm. I was not in an exam room until 3:10pm. I understand that some times things happen that cause a delay. The staff finally announce that the doctor was behind an hour and rescheduling could be done if wanted. I believe that the delay should have been mentioned earlier, possibly when the delay was 20-30 minutes.
