I 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!
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
In the spring of 2019, I noticed muscle mass disappearing in my lower left leg and loss of strength. After going to 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.

Dr. 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.

In 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.
Recently, 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!
I have been a patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes for a couple of years now and cannot tell you how happy I am to have him as my doctor. I had a right hip replacement and shoulder surgery and both have made my standard of living so much better. Dr. Haynes and his entire staff are top-notch. I always come away from my appointments with all of my questions answered and a plan of care that we both agree on together.
I would recommend if you are in need of orthopedic surgery of any kind, please, please, meet with Dr. Haynes and talk to him about your case. I guarantee you will choose him as your doctor and you will be extremely satisfied with the outcome, whether you need surgery or not. Thank you, Dr. Haynes and staff, for taking such good care of me these past few years.
A Year Later ….
After a year, following my Rotator Cuff Surgery, all is well!
Shoulder feels the best ever. From the start to finish, Dr. Boyd Haynes and the OSC Team were there all the way.
The OSC Physical Therapy staff is the best! You must endure the physical therapy though, for full recovery, and it was not as bad as I expected! Get it done… Live Life!
I recently was having serious pain in my knee, and discussing my problem with friends & family, they recommended I make an appointment with Dr. Boyd Haynes for advice. I called the office and had an appointment in a few days. He reviewed the x-rays and examined me, and his initial diagnosis was a torn meniscus. To confirm, he ordered a MRI, and a follow-up appointment, and I was back in the office within five days of my initial visit. His initial diagnosis was correct. He reviewed the test results and explained my options in great detail with me. I am a very active senior citizen, and decided to get surgery quickly so I can enjoy water sports this summer. Dr Haynes explained it was out patient surgery, I’d be laid up for a few days, and should be able to resume activities within a week or so.
The surgery was conducted at Mary Immaculate Hospital. I got there at about 8:00 am, and was home recovering by about 1:00 pm. Dr. Haynes stressed that for 48 hours “I was his”, that I needed to take pain pills as prescribed, keep my leg elevated above my heart, and constantly keep ice on it. I could walk with crutches or a cane if needed, and don’t baby the knee. The first three days were a little uncomfortable, but by day four, I carried a cane with me, but felt comfortable enough to walk without it. By day seven, I was as active as before, and putting about 15,000 steps on my Fitbit daily.
I feel confident that I made the right decision about having the surgery, and glad I used Dr. Haynes, and the staff at OSC. Day nine was my post-operation visit, and after examination, he said I was doing great, wouldn’t need any Physical Therapy, and to simply get back to enjoying life and the summer.
Many thanks to everyone at OSC and especially Dr. Haynes for his expertise and professionalism…I will continue to recommend him and know if anything else comes up in the future, I’ll be back at OSC…many thanks!

My name is Gary Benoit and I am 70 years of age.
Dr. Boyd Haynes, Joint Surgeon, completed my anterior right hip joint replacement on 8 May 19. It was much needed, since my limping and pain continued to get worse.
The problem was due to all of my years of attempting to stay healthy, and over time, it finally caught up to me. My right hip was “bone on bone” and needed to be attended to. Pain did increase daily.
After a consult with Dr. Haynes, it was determined my next course of action was a hip replacement. Years of jogging, racket ball, hand ball, all around ball playing, etc., took its toll on me, when I knew it was time to get the hip repaired.
Results of the surgery, left me feeling great and no restrictions after two weeks. Quality of life is super and with no pain. I tip my hat off to Dr. Haynes as he is a great American, skilled surgeon, and a gentleman. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Dr. Haynes.
