I came in to see Dr. Boyd Haynes for right hip pain. He showed me a stretching exercise to do. It has worked really well. I do my stretches while I am watching TV every night and I do not have any more pain. Thanks so much, Dr. Haynes!
My story is rethinking life with severe Osteoarthritis (OA), albeit “tri-compartmental O/A bone-on-bone” in my left knee. The disease was severe and getting progressively worse.The pain in my left knee caused me to miss out on family activities and just getting around in general. Working with Dr. Boyd Haynes and his PA, Christopher Schwizer, collectively we came up with a plan. I was comfortable going to Mary Immaculate Hospital for surgery, after all, I have heard positive stories about the hospital. This made my journey relatively easy.
I had a CT scan on my left knee for a ConforMIS designed knee implant. All of my information was sent to Boston, MA. The implant hardware was to fit my knee like a glove, perfect fit. My surgery was set for 12 Sept 2018. All went well and I was released the next day, with no pain.
The next few weeks were spent with OSC Physical Therapy (PT). Mr. Jim Koske, MPT, and Ms. Victoria Skay, LPTA, developed a series of exercises to increase my range of motion (ROM) and quad strength for my left knee. At the end of two weeks, my ROM was 98 per cent. However was expecting to achieve more. It is anticipated by 18 Dec., 2018 (next appointment) that I will successfully achieve 105 degrees, if not more.
My personal thanks to Dr. Haynes, his staff and to OSC PT, that made me do the tough things in order to get better. It was a stellar performance by all to get me back to a new normal life. Again, my personal thanks.
I was blessed to have Dr. Boyd Haynes do the replacement surgery for my left hip in August 2016 and my right knee most recently this past June 2018. With my left hip, I spent two nights in the hospital and had very little pain. With my right knee, I was up and out of the hospital in less then 24 hours!
I was amazed at how good I felt and how little pain I had. I started rehab the next day. Dr. Haynes is very professional and yet very kind and caring. You know exactly what to expect and what you must do to get back on your feet again. He is an excellent surgeon and you know you are in good hands. He’s the best!!
I’m 71 years old and have been a patient of Dr. Boyd W. Haynes III for over 25 years.
I enjoy being physically active, and, as a result, my body has paid the price. Dr. Haynes has always been keenly aware of my desire to get back into action as soon as possible after injuries, mishaps and age-related conditions. He has performed orthoscopic surgery on both knees (running related), surgically removed calcium build up in my big toe (golf cart accident), treated my shoulder’s AC joint (racquetball) and recently treated 5 broken ribs (cycling). Dr. Haynes followed up each surgery/procedure with a prescribed regimen of exercise and/or rest, as necessary, to resume my normal activities.
In recent years I’ve had a chronic, though tolerable osteoarthritic condition in both knees. Although periodic cortisone injections helped for a while, within less than three months, the pain and locking up of the knee joint would return, making normal physical activities, including golf, difficult to perform at a comfortable level.
Dr. Haynes recommended that I begin a series of three Euflexxa knee injections. The injections were completed in April 2018 and six months later I am still pain free and as active as like to be!
It’s been a great experience to have such a knowledgeable, professional and caring Orthopedic Surgeon, such as Dr. Haynes, take genuine interest in, and positive action toward my health and physical resiliency.
I’m a most lucky and grateful patient.
Thank you Dr. Haynes!
My knees had been bone-on-bone for some time. I had tried gel and cortisone injections when I lived in Florida. Surgery worried me; the surgery itself, fear of uncontrolled pain, the rehab and the downtime. Dr. Jenny Andrus, Pain Management Specialist at OSC, provided another option: nerve blocks. These did give me temporary relief and the time I needed to come to grips with having knee replacement surgery.
Dr. Boyd Haynes, also with OSC, was totally prepared for my questions about knee replacement. I immediately felt more at ease about the surgery. I did the recommended strengthening exercises prior to surgery. I know this helped me in rehab.
Both of my knee replacements were done as outpatient. Dr. Haynes’ post surgery orders provide for exceptional pain relief. The idea of standing up on a new knee 1-2 hours after surgery is unbelievable, but I did it and was comfortable!
The evening after surgery, Dr. Haynes called to check on me. I have never had a doctor do that…His office called the next day to check again!
I am still rehabbing the 2nd knee. But it is amazing to be able to get out of a chair, walk and stand for extended periods without pain. Now, I kick myself for waiting so long to have knee replacement.
I am forever grateful to Dr. Haynes, Dr. Andrus and the entire OSC team for their expertise and care.
Numbness, tingling and shooting pain that felt like electric shocks in my fingers and hand. That was my daily experience. Diagnosis was carpal tunnel. When researching the condition, I read that allowing the nerves to continue to be compressed could cause permanent loss of feeling in my fingers. Time to go to the doctor.
A referral from my primary care doctor lead me to Dr. Boyd Haynes’ office at Orthopaedic & Spine Center, where surgery was scheduled. With his less invasive procedure, about 30 minutes was all it took.
I went home, armed with pain meds, and never had to take a single pill. When I worked my hand, as Dr. Haynes prescribed, it just felt a little sore, but no pain, no swelling in my fingers, no more numbness, no more shocking pains. The procedure left only a very small incision that did not require any stitches.
Two days after the procedure, I was able to shower. After 8 days, at my follow-up with Dr. Haynes, he was satisfied with my progress, He encouraged me to try to use my hand as much as possible and resume my normal activities. It is nice to have full function of my hand again.
Thank you, Dr. Haynes and your staff at Orthopaedic & Spine Center (OSC) – you are all awesome!
Dr. Boyd Haynes is always so positive and funny. He makes me laugh before he has Chris inject my knees!! Laughter seems to help in those stressful and painful situations.
I can’t think of anything that you can do to improve your practice. What I enjoy most about coming to OSC is Dr. Haynes’ funny attitude. He really enjoys his work and that makes me trust him so much more.
In February 2018, I fell and injured my right shoulder. I could not raise my arm more than a few inches. I visited Dr. Boyd Haynes who confirmed that I had a “massive” rotator cuff tear and that surgery was the only option. I’ve since learned that “massive” is the worst possible tear that he will try to repair. I have complete confidence in Dr. Haynes, so 2 weeks later I underwent the rotator cuff surgery and spent the next 6 weeks in a sling/immobilizer waiting to heal enough to begin physical therapy. During this time, I did exactly what Dr. Haynes told me and after several weeks of physical therapy, I have use of my right arm again.
For anyone facing this type of surgery, it is important to follow instructions and stick with the Physical Therapy, even though it is not always easy. Many thanks to Dr. Haynes and Dr. Tom Toothaker, Fred, and Josh in the Physical Therapy department for everything!
In March 2017, I had a total left knee replacement performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes. My physical therapy was at OSC Physical Therapy Center. Dr. Tom Toothaker met with me and designed a physical therapy program for me.
I worked very hard with him and his staff to increase the flexibility and range of motion necessary to regain full use of my left knee. It was a long, very painful process and, sometimes, I felt that I had hit a brick wall. I kept working, and with the help of Dr. Toothaker and his staff, I continued to improve. At the one year mark, I had regained my full range of motion. I still have soreness, but I continue to exercise and improve.
In the future, I will need to have a total right knee replacement done. I will schedule this surgery with Dr. Boyd Haynes again. I will also definitely do my physical therapy at OSC with Dr. Toothaker. I highly recommend this facility. This staff is well-trained and their expertise was THE essential element in my recovery.
In March 2017, I had a total knee replacement. Dr. Boyd Haynes was my surgeon and he did an excellent job. By the time I had surgery, my left knee was deformed (turning inward), very painful and I was walking with a cane. After much physical therapy and exercise, that knee is back to normal. I was up and walking the day of the surgery, but it took months of pain and exercise for me to regain my full range of motion and for the pain to subside. Dr. Haynes was correct when he told me it could take up to a year to fully recover from the surgery.
It has now been 15 months and I feel that I am continuing to improve. Although I am definitely not looking forward to it, I will be seeing Dr. Haynes in the near future to schedule a total knee replacement for my right knee. I know I will be looking at another year of pain and hard work to recover, but I would not want any other doctor to perform this surgery. I have total confidence in Dr. Haynes and the staff at Orthopaedic and Spine Center.
