My name is Sean Bunyon. This testimonial will sound very hyperbolic, but it’s the honest truth and I wasn’t paid for my endorsement, LOL.
Dr. Boyd Haynes performed my first hip replacement a few months ago and I’m beyond satisfied with the results. I had a congenital defect of the femoral head that caused severe arthritis, discomfort, pain, changed my gait, and made it almost impossible to run for most of the past decade.
I procrastinated having the surgery, in large part, due to the testimonies of a couple of good friends that had complete replacements in their early 30’s. I’m in my mid 40’s. They both described their respective recoveries as the most painful experiences they’ve ever endured. My recovery couldn’t have been more dissimilar.
Due to requiring an organ transplant, my hand was forced in regards to having hip surgery, as having the replacement wouldn’t be possible after a transplant. My fears of a painful recovery weren’t realized, as I experienced absolutely ZERO pain after the operation and during my convalescence. I, of course, had soreness and stiffness following surgery, but totally no pain. I still can’t wrap my head around that fact. I was walking completely unassisted within 3 weeks of the operation and I’m currently training for a 5k next week.
Dr. Haynes is very friendly, attentive, and thoroughly answered all my questions and concerns. I can only speak of my personal experience and can’t promise a similar one for anyone else. I will attest to Dr. Haynes professionalism and expertise and he has my emphatic recommendation.
I recently had a total knee replacement at the Orthopaedic and Spine Center (OSC). I have written a testimonial for Dr. Boyd Haynes and highly recommend OSC, particularly Dr. Haynes and his surgical team, for this procedure. Further, I chose the OSC Physical Therapy team for my post-op physical therapy provider. After 2 weeks of home therapy, I was ready for my outpatient therapy.
Dr. Paige Tretter was my lead therapist. Her team consisted of Bill Richards (PT Assistant) and Brittany Hodges (PT Technician). Dr. Paige designed a detailed PT plan for me after conducting a range of motion assessment of my knee. She provided me an at-home exercise program to be integral to the OSC exercise plan. By following her plan, I was able to meet my range of motion goal ahead of schedule. I then progressed to leg muscle strengthening.
I had 8 x 1 hour therapy sessions at OSC PT. My PT Technician, Brittany Hodges, escorted me to my exercise locations and coached me through each exercise to ensure I was doing each properly. At the conclusion of each session, Bill Richards did a progress assessment to ensure I was progressing. At no point, did I feel duress throughout my sessions. Every exercise was a positive experience.
I highly recommend going to OSC PT for your outpatient knee replacement physical therapy treatments. Throughout my 4 week program, Dr. Paige and her staff were very professional, encouraging and just plain friendly. I enjoyed my experiences at the OSC PT Center. Note however – self physical therapy at home IS absolutely essential to reaching your therapy goals. This takes commitment to the OSC plan for your complete surgery recovery.
I had a total knee replacement at OSC at the end of May 2021. Dr. Boyd Haynes ( and PA Chris Schwizer) performed my surgery. I strongly recommend going to OSC and requesting Dr. Haynes in particular, for this surgery. Their services are conservative, comprehensive and professional. I requested Dr.Haynes because he previously performed hip replacement surgery on my wife and her experience was excellent.
Dr. Haynes was very thorough in terms of discussing my knee surgery and recommended for me outpatient surgery. He detailed every step of the procedure, answering clearly my questions. I reported to the hospital at 8:00 AM. By 9:30, I had completed my pre-op procedures and met with Dr. Haynes’ surgical team. The next thing I remember was waking up in a large comfortable chair at 12:30 PM. My leg was wrapped in an Ace bandage from the middle of my thigh to my ankle. The entire procedure was absolutely pain free. I was a little groggy at first, but soon ready for discharge. I had no problem getting into the passenger side seat of our car.
The next day I was visited by Dr. Haynes’ home physical therapy staff. Dr. Haynes does not use stitches or staples to close the wound. A surgical tape closes the wound and is pain free and comfortable. My wound was text book perfect. I was given a home exercise program and therapy schedule to ensure a successful surgery. Home therapy took 2 weeks (2 visits/week). I elected to go to the OSC Physical Therapy for my out-patient physical therapy. I highly recommend this group for your 4 week post-op physical therapy. The OSC Physical Therapy program is integral to Dr. Haynes’ surgical plan for a successful knee replacement. Note – it is essential to do your home exercises as prescribed by the OSC Physical Therapy professional staff. Increasing range of motion and strengthening your leg muscles are critical to a successful knee replacement.
In summary, I strongly recommend using all of OSC’s services. I especially recommend having Dr. Haynes and his team perform all aspects of the procedure. I give Dr. Haynes my highest recommendation, trust him implicitly and am very pleased with my new knee. I’m back to walking several miles per day and I’m confident I’ll be playing golf again soon – pain free.
Before Dr. Boyd Haynes did my “jiffy hip” surgery, I was convinced I was going to have to move from the third floor apartment that I love. My arthritic hip was making the 38 steps to my apartment increasingly hard to climb. And with no elevator, it looked as if moving was my only choice.
Dr. Haynes told me that if my hip was the only reason I thought I should move, that wouldn’t be an issue. He was right. Just two weeks post op, I am going up and down the stairs with no pain and little difficulty.
Before the surgery, wherever I went, kind people asked me if I needed help as I struggled with my cane to get back to my car after shopping.
Today, after just over two weeks, I am walking unassisted by a cane or walker – not as fast yet as I used to be, but I am improving daily and convinced it won’t be long before I’ll be able to take the long beach walks I loved. I feel like a new person – or, more accurately, the person I was before my hip started chipping away at my mobility.
Dr. Haynes answered all my questions and seemed to sense concerns I hadn’t voiced. And his caring manner gave me confidence. He called the night of my surgery to check up on me and arranged home physical therapy for two weeks to aid in my recovery.
I could not have asked for a better outcome or a better surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Haynes to anyone considering a hip replacement.
Over the years, Dr. Boyd Haynes has been our family’s orthopaedic surgeon. He has always provided truly remarkable skills and excellent care. His post-operative guidance in physical therapy also thoroughly supports the excellent outcomes that we have experienced. Our family is most appreciative.
I’m an Operating Room nurse at a local hospital. I injured my right knee in 2011 and was told by an orthopedic surgeon that I would need a total knee replacement in 1 to 5 years. By 2015, I needed some sort of intervention to that right knee and consulted Dr. Boyd Haynes. At the very beginning of treatment, I told Dr. Haynes that I wanted to stick to less invasive measures and wasn’t interested in a total knee replacement. He agreed with the previous surgeon, in that I would eventually need knee replacement surgery. He was very understanding and assured me that he’d do everything he could to treat my knee without surgery. He said to let him know when I was ready to have that knee replaced.
He was true to his word and my treatment plan started with steroid injections and progressed to hyaluronic acid injections. Finally, I decided it was time to have my knee replaced. I was very apprehensive about surgery…concerned about the pain and had heard terrible stories about the physical therapy that would follow. When I told Dr. Haynes I was ready….there was no “I told you so…or what took you so long”. He was very supportive and assured me that I’d made the right decision. I had a right total knee replacement in March, 2020.
It’s been 1 year and I can honestly say that having knee replacement surgery was nothing less than life changing. My coworkers can’t believe how “normal” I’m standing and walking! My biggest regret is that I waited so long to have it done. If you’re on the fence regarding treatment…whether joint replacement or more conservative measures…my best advice is to get the best treatment done as early as possible. Don’t put it off! For me, the discomfort from the surgery was much less than the discomfort I was experiencing on a daily basis.
The entire team at OSC provided excellent care and were always available to answer any questions I may have had. Dr. Haynes & Chris (Dr. Haynes’ Physician Assistant) proved to be very committed to providing patient-centered care. I am thoroughly pleased with my results!
Paul Moseley, a patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes, following a tendon repair in his right arm. Mr. Moseley has also had knee surgery with Dr. Haynes.
My name is Paul Moseley and I am an active 63-year-old male. November of 2020, I tore my distal bicep tendon in my right arm which is my dominant arm. I was moving a heavy sofa and the sofa shifted on my helper’s end. This caused my end to shift and me to hear a pop in my arm and I actually felt the tendon retract inside my arm.
Shortly thereafter, I began to wonder how in the world are they going to fix this?
I am happy to report that Dr. Boyd Haynes (who had previously performed a successful knee surgery on me) also does a nifty bicep tendon repair job.
During my initial meeting with Dr. Haynes he was optimistic that I only had a partial tear and it may not require surgery. He recommended an MRI so he could determine the extent of the rupture and a plan of action. Before the MRI, I managed to further damage the bicep tendon due solely to my carelessness.
When Dr. Haynes saw me for the MRI analysis he already knew that I had a 100% tear in my bicep tendon and he knew it would require surgery.
He also knew it was important to schedule surgery right away in order to facilitate a successful repair. I left his office and was instructed to go directly to the hospital to get registered for surgery.
I am now approaching 5 Months post-surgery and I am very pleased with the results. I have excellent mobility with my arm and no pain. I have regained much of my strength and I am confident that I will achieve 100 % of my previous strength in the near future.
How are they going to fix this?
Call Dr. Boyd Haynes
I have had pain in both knees for several years and had knee arthroscopies in the past. Even after I retired, I continued to work in my own lawn care business and the pain continued. I finally made an appointment with Dr. Boyd Haynes to see what could be done. He found bone-on-bone and told me that I would know when I needed to have knee replacement surgery. I was convinced and scheduled my first surgery for January of 2020. With Dr. Haynes’ expertise and my ,hard work with Physical Therapy (PT), I was back to normal walking, range of motion without pain.
This past January, I had my left knee replaced and again, with his skill and PT, I didn’t need a walker, just a cane at first, then he measured me and I had 0-degree extension and well over 100-degree flexion. He was pleased as was I, and am now working as before surgery, but without pain in my knees.
Even though I am 74 and a diabetic, I was able to maintain good Blood Sugar levels throughout.

Thank you, Dr. Haynes for your care and expertise in bringing me back to better mobility and pain free knees. My advice is to not wait too long and do what the doctor tells you, work hard and you, too, can, in return, have the knees of your youth!
At the age of 81 years young, I had full knee replacement surgery, performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes in March of 2020. I was very nervous about everything and waited a few years too long to have the surgery. Looking back, I wonder why I was so nervous. Dr. Haynes and his team were very patient in walking me and my family through the entire process. They leave nothing out and my surgery and recovery went great!
I went home on the same day of the surgery. Everything that morning went exactly as Dr. Boyd described. Both of my sons accompanied me to the hospital on the day of my surgery. They told me later that Dr. Haynes met with them immediately after the surgery, explaining how it went, answered their questions and told them when they would be able to see me.
Being able to go home the day of my surgery was great. On the second day, I was up and walking with a walker. At this point of my recovery, I began my PT and in home exercises. Dr. Boyd’s primary directive for the best chances of a full recovery was simple and straight forward, “do your PT and follow up exercises”. My PT was conducted at home because of Covid-19; all of the in-home Physical Therapist’s and nurses were wonderful to work with. My exercises and PT began on day two. With my daughter-in-law acting as my at home PT coach, she ensured I followed Dr. Boyd’s primary directive. This is not the most fun thing you will experience, but you will make progress each day.
My final follow up with Dr. Haynes was completed in early March 2021. I am now pain free in my knee. I am able to walk, go up and down steps without the use a cane or walker. I’m enjoying myself again with family and friends and have Dr. Haynes and his entire team to thank for that.
I highly recommend Dr. Haynes and the OSC Physical Therapy team. I would be remiss if I failed to mention Dr. Haynes’s Physician Assistant, Chris Schwizer. He was also wonderful to work with and always made me feel I was in great hands. Dr. Haynes’s team, their professionalism, bedside manner and his cheerful laugh lets you know he cares.
This is a one year anniversary follow -up review of my right knee total replacement by Dr. Boyd Haynes. As a recap of the prior review, I walked up and down the stairs normally, but carefully, on the twelfth day after surgery. A month after surgery I was walking up and down the stairs normally. I have had continuing recovery as I kept up with the recommended exercises. I have a stationary bicycle and a treadmill that I use regularly, since I was mostly housebound for the last year due to the Covid-19 recommendations to not travel unless necessary. I can do whatever I was able to due before surgery, with no restrictions. My only problem is still some stiffness when trying to squat or sit on a low stool. Sitting down and standing up in a regular chair or sofa is not a problem.
I would highly recommend Dr. Haynes to anyone who is contemplating knee replacement. He, his team and the OSC Physical Therapy team are excellent, and provided the best care I could imagine. Only one caveat: if you have the knee replacement surgery, follow the recommended exercises every day; it will make the recovery much faster.
