Allan Cohen – Hip Replacement

Physician– Dr. Boyd W. Haynes III

My name is Allan Cohen. I am semi-retired and live in South Florida. My right hip had extensive arthritis, making it difficult and painful to walk. X-rays showed I needed a hip replacement. Living in South Florida, there is no shortage of good surgeons to perform such an operation. But, I knew the only place to go was Orthopaedic and Spine Center and see Dr. Boyd Haynes.

Dr. Haynes performs hip replacement from the front/side rather than the old, more common rear approach procedure. The results are radical. The pain is greatly reduced and recovery goes from 3-4 months to 6 weeks. After 1 week, I was able to walk without the use of a walker. After 2 weeks, I was able to walk without a cane. It is now 3 weeks and I am taking 20 minute daily walks without pain. I feel 90-95% recovered. It is truly amazing how quickly the recovery took place.

Besides being an excellent surgeon, Dr. Haynes truly cares about his patients and will take as much time as necessary to answer your questions. I feel grateful that this doctor was the one that operated on me.

Marla Prow Brown – Knee Replacement/Spine Surgery

Never realizing how genetics and other factors would affect me in years to come, I was referred to Dr. Haynes by Dr. Trieshmann – well over ten years ago regarding knee replacement/partial knee replacement – to discuss different avenues available to me. After everything else was tried – it was inevitable that no other solutions would fix my deteriorating knees (and other body parts). Hence, my first knee replacement.

When I met Dr. Haynes many years ago, I was delighted to find an Ortho Surgeon with a sense of humor. Right up my alley!! I also found Dr. Haynes to be compassionate and sensitive to my plight. I am one of those patients who really DOES believe a doctor with a sense of humor in addition to knowledge, skill and experience – positively assists with overall recovery, not to mention putting the patient more at ease.

Since then, needless to say, I have several surgeries from Dr. Haynes. Due to his skills, I was finally able to walk down the halls at school and not hang on to the walls.

The staff at OSC knows me as well—and I kid with them if that is a good thing or not! The Office Staff is very pleasant, highly efficient, organized and helpful when it came to me needing anything from an appointment, records or paperwork.

I trust Dr. Haynes and his P.A. Jamie implicitly. They are also familiar with my home life, pain level, amount of energy I may or may not have, work history, family support, medical history and what effort is required upon returning to work. In order to heal properly with good results, patients MUST (also) be vigilant with Drs. orders, follow through instructions, PT, rest, etc. I have been been a very compliant patient as I do not want to end up as a statistic and be wheelchair bound and avoid any complications that may occur due to my negligence.

Since they do know me so well, it allows me to be honest and open regarding my reason for the doctor visit. I feel as though Dr. Haynes knows I wouldn’t make an appointment – or complain, unless I truly had an issue with either of my knees.

I also dealt with blinding pain that ran up and down my right leg, after a work related fall. I was sent to Physical Therapy centers, and had no choice which ones. Their offices were overcrowded and inept. They took no time to delve into the root of my discomfort. They merely assigned a busy aide to do therapy on my leg.

I requested an appointment with Dr. Carlson @ OSC. – as Dr. Haynes had suggested Dr. Carlson for my ailment. Dr. Carlson sent me to Physical Therapy @ OSC. I met Dave, the Therapist who took my history, symptoms, topped off with a hands on examination. I was in utter disbelief as Dave discovered that the pain in my leg, was due to deteriorated disks in my BACK. I finally found some relief and was very grateful that I had requested Dr. Carlson.

Dr. Carlson’s surgical skills then alleviated yet more bone deterioration in my lower back-and I am grateful to him and his P.A. as well. For the first time in almost 2 years, my leg didn’t hurt.

Over the years, Dr. Haynes has gotten quite popular indeed. I know I have suggested OSC to numerous friends and co-workers.

I am proud to be Dr. Haynes’ and Jamie’s “special” patient!! Thank you!!
