Matthew Byrnes, MD

General Surgeon



Dr. Byrnes joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota in 2007, where he also served as medical director of trauma. In 2012, he moved back to Kansas to be closer to family and has practiced surgery in western Kansas since that time.

Dr. Byrnes joined the staff at Scott County Hospital in 2020 and is the full time general surgeon for the community. He is excited to be able to offer a broad array of general surgery services to the people of western Kansas.

On a personal level, Dr. Byrnes is the father to three boys, ages 5, 7, and 9. When he isn't working or spending time with his boys, he can be found jumping out of airplanes or making furniture in his woodshed. He recently was fully licensed as a skydiver and his woodshop produces tables, charcuterie boards, and other types of furniture. He also loves to travel and play soccer.
