E. Lee – Physical Therapy for Osteoarthritis of the Knees

When I started at the OSC Physical Therapy facility for my knee condition, I noticed right off how great these guys were (Jamie Swale, DPT; Katelyn Turek and Douglas) and how awesome they are with caring for each patient, along with their professional attitude.  I have so much I want to say about the amazing care and treatment I’m receiving and am very grateful for you guys being my therapist and my techs.

What I love most about this facility is the tremendous level of motivation that has inspired me. My therapy team is knowledgeable in all areas of this profession and always keep me informed.  You guys get the job done and I thank you for your understanding, patience and just listening to any question or concern that I may have in reference to my treatment.  Plus, the compassionate, heartfelt care I have been receiving since I’ve been coming to the facility. I’m doing all of the advanced exercises, which are very helpful and have helped me to improve my mobility tremendously, without stress.

OSC is the best Physical Therapy office for my treatment plan and I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to you guys for taking good care of me.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this rehabilitation period.  I’ll be forever grateful as I continue treatment.

Thank  you!

Jon-Betty King – Non-surgical Treatment for Knee Arthritis

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI have been Dr. Boyd Haynes’ patient since 03/2005. He has worked miracles numerous times.

The last was 4 injections of ORTHOVISC. It is a miracle drug. I still had issues after surgery, therapy and previous injections. My knee feels brand new. I feel like a new person. I RECOMMEND ORTHOVISC HIGHLY.

Dr. Haynes, Chris, Dr. Andrus, the Physical Therapy Team and all other staff members are THE BEST.

I GIVE THEM A 10+ STAR RATING.

Alice Grady – Total Knee Replacement

Image of Alice Grady on a mountain topI am a 71-year-old outdoorsy woman living in Mathews County, VA. I started seeing Dr. Boyd Haynes for my knee over eight years ago. My knees were in bad shape back then, but I told him I didn’t want to do replacement. So, he worked with me, patiently trying every type of injection, physical therapy, etc. for years.

Eventually my knee became so bad, I couldn’t get on or off my horse without assistance, and I rode in constant pain. My knee woke me up at night, and I couldn’t easily go up or down stairs. I couldn’t even get out of my kayak! I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a new knee.

I was terrified (the reason I put it off so long), but my results were fabulous! I am so pleased Dr. Haynes was my surgeon. I was up and around quickly. I can get on and off my horse with no problem. I am riding much better now that I have a functional leg!   Life is so much better, I wish I had done it sooner. I even did some hiking in the Canadian Rockies this summer. And, not that it matters, but my scar is barely noticeable.

I highly recommend Dr. Boyd Haynes. When I need my other knee replaced, Dr. Haynes will definitely be my choice.

Martha Miller – Non-surgical Treatment for Wrist Tendinitis

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI recently suffered with tendinitis in my wrist. It appeared as a small cyst at my wrist, in line with my thumb. I suffered with it for several weeks, until it began waking me up at night if I moved it the wrong way. Dr. Boyd Haynes diagnosed it as a form of tendinitis and suggested a cortisone injection. By that same evening, I noticed a lessening of the pain and the following day, there was only a slight tenderness where the injection had been. Within 2 days, there was no pain at all. It has now been 2 mos. and I am still pain free. Lesson learned….don’t hesitate to get a painful joint looked at. It doesn’t always mean surgery. Dr. Haynes has performed surgery on me for carpal tunnel and trigger finger release. Sometimes surgery is the best option; however, I appreciate the fact that Dr. Haynes always offers the least invasive approach first….and it has given me immediate relief every time!

George Crowder – Hip Replacement Surgery

Image of Dr. Boyd Haynes

I had a total hip replacement on September 11.  Prior to the surgery, I met with Dr. Boyd Haynes and  he explained exactly what he was going to do. The whole process went smoothly.

I have experienced little to no pain and I wish I had done this years ago.  The staff at OSC are extremely professional and I felt very comfortable going through this with them.

Dr. Haynes is the best and I would recommend him to anyone.

I will eventually get my left hip done and I want Dr. Haynes to perform that surgery too.    George Crowder

John De Mille – Spine and Knee Procedures

In the spring of 2019, I noticed muscle mass disappearing in my lower left leg and loss of strength. After going Dr. Jeffrey Carlsonto my PCM, which happens to be the US Navy since I am retired military, I got a referral out of the USN system to see a Spine Surgeon. I picked OSC, even though it is a long drive and traffic is terrible getting there from Va Beach. Boy, am I glad I did.

Got an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson within a week of contacting them, when I contacted some Docs here in Va Beach, I was told it would be at least 4 months.

Got my MRI done, some back x-rays and met with Dr. Carlson. He gave me what options were available. He did not push surgery, but that was one of the options. I selected surgery, as I had been down the PT road and had been dealing with Sciatica nerve pain several times in the past. I felt surgery was the best option to resolve the bulge disk issue.

After surgery, there were times when I had some numbness and some sciatica pain, but after about four weeks all resolved and no pain or numbness.

Dr. Carlson explained to me everything to expect and it was exactly how he said it would be.

I am very happy and satisfied that I used this practice, Dr. Carlson and his staff were very easy to work with and very informative.

I highly recommend this practice. In the past, when I needed some work on my knee, Dr. Boyd Haynes did it and he was outstanding as well. If you want professionals that are also a pleasure to work with, contact OSC.

John L. Henderson – Treatment for Sports Related Injuries

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesDr. Boyd Haynes first treated me in 2012 for a torn meniscus; an injury that drastically affected my lifestyle and daily schedule. Dr. Haynes diagnosed the injury and explained the nature and severity of the tear, then recommended a course of action for performing a procedure to repair the tear. But then Dr. Haynes did something I was not ready for, something I had not previously experienced from a physician or surgeon…he asked me what I thought was best for me…how did I want to proceed? That might not seem like a big deal, but to me it meant the difference between a physician who treats an injury and a physician who treats a person…an individual.

Since that time, Dr. Haynes has treated me multiple times for other sports-related injuries and performed surgeries and procedures using the same professional AND personal approach. I always find that the staff at OSC is professional, prompt, and thorough in their processing of my visits. I typically take advantage of the new Check-In kiosk which provides me with the option to avoid the normal check-in line, and I believe results in a more efficient check-in process. Thinking back to the numerous times I have visited the OSC complex, whether it be the main physicians’ complex or the MRI facility, I have never had to wait more than a few minutes before being called back to an examination room, and I cannot remember a visit where I waited more than the same few minutes before being seen by the treating physician or other staff member.

I would like to say that I will never again have reason to be treated for orthopedic injuries or conditions in the future, but I am certain that I will. And because of the wonderful care and treatment I have received over the past many years from Dr. Haynes and the staff at OSC, I will not hesitate to trust them with my well-being.

I would like to personally thank Dr. Haynes for his care for me over the years. I have and will continue to recommend his services to family and friends. I consider him more than my orthopedic physician…I consider him as a friend.

Sincerely,

John L. Henderson

Michael Noehl – “Jiffy” Hip Replacement Surgery and Physical Therapy

Image of Michael NoehlIn 2014, Dr. Boyd Haynes performed an anterior hip replacement surgery on me.  It was to relieve the painful effects of arthritis and an injury I received while serving in the Army, that was robbing me of an active lifestyle.

As time has passed, my hip and leg have healed and I have gained the strength back in my legs. Within six months of my surgery, I was looking for an exercise with less impact (than my former running) and I turned to bicycle riding. It was a slow start, but through encouragement by Dr. Haynes, and OSC Physical Therapy, I have worked up to riding 200 miles a month as a general routine.

I could not have done this if not for the expert work of Dr. Haynes and the staff at the Orthopedic Spine Center. My progress improves with each day – as noted through my achievement of riding 2500 miles in 2018 and riding my first Century ride – 100 miles in 6.5 hours.

Thanks again to Dr. Haynes and the OSC staff for giving me my life back.

Sandy Roberson – Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesRecently, my sister had Carpal Tunnel surgery and she had a 5 week recovery.

I have needed this surgery for along time now, but am a self employed Hairstylist. Plus, I’m single and live alone. I was really excited to find a doctor that could do the surgery with a three day recovery.

Thank you, Dr. Boyd Haynes, for fixing my hand with minimal recovery. You are awesome!
