Testimonials: Hip Replacement

Edith Cheseman – Total Hip Replacement

I would like to thank Dr. Boyd Haynes for what he did for me. I suffered for over two years with a hip problem. I saw another doctor for quite a while, but no surgery. Later on, another doctor told me to see Dr. Boyd. He has the best manner with me. He operated on me, to do total hip replacement and the surgery was a success. He is an excellent surgeon and a beautiful person. I recommend him to all I know. I thank God for him.

William Johnson – Lumbar Spinal Fusion

Dr. CarlsonI had an MRI on my back in 2019. It showed I had some problems and I felt I would likely need back surgery at some future date. I met with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson in early 2020 to see if it was time for back surgery. At that time, I was having more pain in my knee than in the back. He recommended a hip replacement. That turned out to be good advice and Dr. Boyd Haynes did a very successful hip surgery.

On July 4, 2021, I developed severe pain in my back and the back of my legs. I met with Dr. Carlson again and it was time for a Lumbar fusion. He told me 2 weeks after surgery, I would be feeling pretty good. In two months, I would be in good shape.

Things turned out just as Dr. Carlson had predicted. The pain in the back of my legs was gone just after surgery. I am completely satisfied with the outcome of my surgery and consider myself blessed to be feeling so well. My back and legs are pain free.

Les Curtis – Hip Replacement and Physical Therapy

The operation on my hip, with Dr. John Burrow at OSC, went very smoothly and the staff at Mercy Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital, were very helpful. I had little pain after the operation and over a period of about 6 weeks, was able to walk as normal.

Mr. Jonathan Lorusso PTA, and staff at the OSC Physical Therapy Clinic were very helpful and helped me stretch my muscles back into shape. The check-in on my phone at PT and Orthopedic made it very easy to been seen in a timely manor. I am very pleased with the outcome of my operation.

Sean Bunyon – “Jiffy” Hip Replacement

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.

Karen Muldoon – Jiffy Hip Replacement

Dr. Boyd Haynes, IIIBefore 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.

Mary Cordaro – Physical Therapy after Hip Replacement Surgery

Dr. Jamie SwaleI had a right hip replacement done on August 31, 2020 at Sentara Careplex. However, I used OSC Physical Therapy for my PT. I had been to OSC PT prior and returned to see Dr. Jamie Swale and Fred Wintermantel. I can only say how thankful I am to the staff for the care and concern they displayed.

I could not walk without a walker when I started and was determined to walk without a limp. Jamie and Fred both knew my desire and worked to give me exercises and therapy sessions to meet this end. They were professional and pleasant and even funny at times. Many of the other associates there were also very professional and you could see the team work. I would definitely recommend OSC PT, as the staff are knowledgeable and the facility is well run. Thank you for all you do and for all the patients you have helped. Your service is so valuable to patients.

With sincere thanks and appreciation,
Mary Cordaro

Robert Hayes – Total Hip Replacement

Dr. Boyd Haynes, III

Dr. Boyd Haynes did a great job with my left hip arthroplasty. I picked him because of his experience, references from others, research, and his bedside manner. Post-surgery, I was motivated and anxious to get back to normal, so I picked the OSC Physical Therapy group for PT. Dr. Tom Toothaker and his staff (Bill Richards and Jay Norton) created and worked a plan for me that had me walking on my own with confidence within 4-5 weeks. They encouraged me to keep working on my own and provided a PT plan for me to follow to continue to build strength after being released from their care. Great group of professionals. If I need my right hip fixed, I know who to come to.

Pete Gallaccio – Hip Replacement Surgery

Dr. Haynes ready for surgeryI had a hip replacement performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes on December 9, 2020. Dr. Haynes and his staff were outstanding and made me feel completely comfortable about my decision to have the procedure. The Dr. and staff answered all the questions before, during, and after the procedure. In less than 5 days, I was walking without the support of walker or a cane. I contribute the success of the surgery not only towards the Dr. and staff but also to physically preparing my hip and leg prior to the surgery with strength-building exercises. I will not hesitate to use Dr. Haynes or OSC for any orthopaedic needs in the future.

Philip (Scott) Zimmerman – Total Hip Replacement Surgery

Dr. Boyd Haynes, IIII had a total hip replacement on June 17th. Today is July 2nd, and I am walking with a cane in hand, but not actually in use (most of the time). I am climbing stairs using both legs carefully, which I had to do one at a time previously. My pain level is nearly non-existent and my recovery is phenomenal.

Dr. Boyd Haynes and the entire staff have been great to work with, even as I was forced to endure two cancellations of my surgery due to Covid-19 restrictions. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Haynes was there to answer questions and root me on at my follow up visit. His sense of humor and personal attention has made my life better. Thank you!

Ann Hall – Two Hip Replacement Surgeries

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesDr. Boyd Haynes has quite a “fan club” and I am a member. He has been my surgeon for, now, two hip replacements and my recoveries and long-term outcomes have been most successful. His amazing surgical skill, his warmth and graciousness, combined with his wonderful sense of humor with his patients, make the process of serious surgery much easier to bear.

He will not disappoint and I would not hesitate to recommend him as the surgeon you want and need.
