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.
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.
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.

I 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.
I 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!

Dr. 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.
I could hardly walk into Dr. Boyd Haynes’ office. I had been misdiagnosed by many doctors. After a fast look at my hip x-ray, he determined that a total hip replacement was in order.
Dr. Haynes did the surgery on February 26, 2020 and within two weeks, I was driving my car and the walker was put away. The office staff was awesome and very encouraging.
Thank you, to Dr. Haynes and your office staff, for giving me back my life!
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 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.
Thank you, Dr. John Burrow (hip replacement surgery), Dr. Paige Tretter and Fred Wintermantel, PTA (Physical Therapy)!
My hip replacement surgery and Physical Therapy experience have been one-of-a-kind! Although it was physically challenging (and a little frightening) in the beginning, I really am enjoying my progress. Thanks to you all, I am now more mobile, walking without my cane for the first time in almost two years. I look forward to working with OSC in the future. I certainly will recommend your facility to anyone I know.
