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!
Joe Gagliano, knee surgery
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.
Dr. John Burrow is one of the good guys! The best Ortho Doctor….
The four years I have been going to him, he has saved me from much pain! Now that I’m moving to Rhode Island….I wish I could take him with me! I’m telling anyone, if you want some help in feeling better, knees, hands, ankles…he is the Dr. to go see!
Also, Dr. Burrow sent me to Dr. Boyd Haynes…he too was outstanding! Nothing about OSC I did not like…Thank you!
I had my knee replacement surgery on Feb. 27,2019. I am so grateful to Dr. Boyd Haynes. I wonder now why I put it off for so long. If you can get through the first 7-10 days, you’ve got it made.
I strongly recommend Dr. Haynes. He has done a hip replacement in 2011 and now my knee. Fantastic job on both!
Dr. Boyd Haynes has given me back my hands! I saw him because of my trigger thumb. First, I had the cortisone shot on my left hand, then my right thumb also developed trigger finger. It could not bend at all.
I was wearing a brace for work and taping my thumb and middle finger at night so I could sleep without them locking in a bent position, because when I would straighten them, the pain was excruciating.
I made an appointment with Dr. Haynes and decided surgery was my best choice for care. It was the right choice. I had the trigger thumb release surgery performed and had a cortisone shot in my middle finger. The healing process was fast and I now have full range of movement in my hand and fingers and no pain at all! I couldn’t be happier.
Dr. Haynes fixed my hands and he and his staff are especially nice and friendly. I am very happy with my care from Dr. Haynes and the Orthopedic and Spine team.
For 40 years, I was an avid runner and loved playing racquetball. But 5 years ago, I had to stop both due to discomfort in my left hip. The idea of a hip replacement was always disconcerting to me; however, last June I decided it was time to act and had the hip replaced by Dr. Boyd Haynes. In my almost 70 years, it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I was released from the hospital the day after surgery and never had to take any pain medication.
I am pain-free, and again playing racquetball a couple of times a week, as well as working out on elliptical and stationary bike 4-5 days a week. And my weekly 4 mile walks now include 2 miles of running!
I am firmly a member of the “I should have had it done years ago” club.
