Testimonials: Knee - Partial Knee Replacement

Carole Stockberger – Partial Knee Replacement

Dr. Boyd Haynes was sympathetic and answered all my questions before, during and after surgery. The surgery was scheduled quickly and the process was efficient. All of the staff were caring.

My Physical Therapy went well and took in less time than expected.  My pain was managed very well during my recovery and healing. Having had a partial knee replacement by Dr. Haynes; I will look to him for all my Orthopedic needs and any future surgery. I have already referred friends to Dr. Haynes and will continue to do so. My friends have thanked me because their experience was as positive as mine.

Stan Morgan – Partial Knee Replacement and Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair

IMG_5708Dr. Haynes and the OSC staff have been amazing in every way. My wife had hip replacement approximately 5 years ago. She was barely able to walk and was suffering from severe pain in the joint. She now is able to workout at the gym 4 days a week and has no pain whatsoever.

I have had four surgeries by Dr. Haynes. I was a avid runner for over 25 years and as a result, I tore the meniscus in both of my knees over the years. Dr. Haynes performed arthroscopic surgery on both knees and after my first one, I was able to go snow skiing after only 10 days. In February of 2016, I finally had to have a partial knee replacement. My surgery went without any complications and am now able to walk without any pain.

I highly recommend Dr. Haynes and all the OSC staff for outstanding medical care and awesome bedside manner.

Carol B. Mann – Partial Knee Replacement


Over the last three years, I suffered with chronic knee pain and had to wear a brace. I had made plans for a trip to Las Vegas and also for a cruise. While on vacation, I could not keep up with the others. My walking was impaired even with the brace. My right knee was very swollen and painful. This was not a good feeling.

When I returned home, I mentioned my condition to a friend and he recommended Dr. Boyd Haynes. Dr. Haynes informed me that I would need a partial knee replacement. This was the best decision for me. My surgery went very well, without any complications. After surgery, I was able to get up and walk to the restroom. Now I am able to ride four miles on the bike and walk two miles a day.

The credit for my progress is due solely to Dr. Boyd Haynes. I would highly recommend Dr. Haynes to anyone, he is patient, understanding and will explain the entire surgical procedure to you. I shall forever be grateful to him.

Garland Whitley – Partial Knee Replacement


Dr. Haynes performed a partial knee replacement for me last year. I had previously consulted with another doctor who said I had to have a full knee replacement, but I’m glad I went to Dr. Haynes for another opinion. The surgery and after care went very well and I am pleased with the results.

Before surgery, I was walking crooked and was in pain. Everything is fine now. I highly recommend him.

Janice Day – Partial Knee Replacement


A year ago, I came to Dr. Haynes about the pain in my knee. I was very confident in him giving me the best advice, since he helped years earlier with my left knee with injections. I was ready for surgery at that time. Dr. Haynes suggested we try medicine first to help with the arthritis. I tried 2 different medicines with a little relief. I came back a couple of months later,but didn’t have complete relief. Dr. Haynes suggested a cortisone shot. I felt great for about a month and I was back again in 3 months for another shot. The last time I got a shot he asked me about surgery,but could give me another shot. I got the shot, but it only lasted a few weeks. I then came back to just talk about surgery. I am a school teacher and didn’t want to miss to much time. I asked if I would get a partial knee replacement or full knee replacement. Dr. Haynes asked about my pain and looking at the x-ray decided I only needed a partial knee replacement.

I can’t believe how great the whole procedure went. I went home right after the surgery and after 2 weeks, I was able to walk with only a cane. Most of the time, I wasn’t even using the cane. I walk with no pain and I am so impressed with Dr. Haynes and his staff. Everyone was there for me and any concerns I would have. Thank you, Dr. Haynes, for helping walk without pain now.

Karen Bowles – Partial Knee Replacement


Dr. Haynes did a partial knee replacement for me about 2 weeks ago. I have been living with severe arthritis pain for over a year and I didn’t even think that there was any way to get rid of the pain completely, but Dr. Haynes made it happen!

Two weeks after my surgery. I am in no pain at all.  It’s unbelievable.

Barbara Besnier – Partial Knee Replacement

On April 30, 2015, I had a partial knee replacement performed by Dr. Boyd W. Haynes, III. Two years prior to surgery, before losing all the cartilage in my knee, I was getting cortisone shots that dulled the pain, however, I was always aware the knee was not up-to-par. In time, all the cartilage was gone and it was bone-on-bone. My knee and leg not only hurt, I limped and my leg became bowed.

I read an article in Coastal Virginia about Dr. Haynes and his technique on replacing the knee. I was very impressed and made an appointment with the good doctor. After the x-ray, surgery was scheduled for a partial knee replacement.

Everyone at the Peninsula Surgery Center was exceptionally nice and made me feel very comfortable. From the receptionist, to the nurses, anesthetist, and most of all Dr. Haynes. He explained the procedure of the replacement, which eased my apprehension and I felt like I was in good hands. Dr. Haynes has an excellent bedside manner.

After surgery, I felt great. I went in early am and out by noon. I was bandaged from my mid-thigh to the ankle and fitted with a soft white brace. That evening, Dr. Haynes took time from his busy schedule to personally call me at home to see how I was doing.

As of July 30, 2015, it was 3 months since surgery. I’m happy to report, the swelling is gone, suture healed and I no longer have pain or limp when walking. Having returned to normal position, my leg is no longer bowed. Kudos to Dr. Boyd Haynes and his staff!

Larry Gene Laughery Sr. – Partial Knee Replacement, Meniscal Tear Surgery, Triceps Repair

I have been thinking about writing this, but every time I sit down to write my testimonial on Dr. Boyd Haynes, something else happens. First, my left shoulder. This is how I first met Dr. Haynes. It was a Workers Comp. required visit that I go see him, since other doctors could not find a problem. We seemed to hit it off on my first visit. X-rays and MRI showed nothing. Dr. Haynes said “we will have to do exploratory surgery to find the problem” and did. He fixed it during surgery and 12 years later, I am still going strong. My movement on left shoulder (the one that was operated on) is better than the right shoulder.

Next, about May 5th, 2011, also at work, I dropped a dishwasher, hitting the inside of my left knee, causing a bone to chip. X-rays and the first MRI did not show the chip, so here we go again, into exploratory surgery on my left knee. Dr. Haynes cleaned up the area and fixed the tear.

About two months later, the area of the chip started to hurt all the time. I went back to Dr. Haynes. He was so easy to work with. We did another MRI and not one chip showed up, but two. So Dr. Haynes went back in and pulled one part of the chip out and found the other chip which had gotten behind the knee cap.

I felt somewhat better, then on another visit, I had shots, then we tried some special rooster comb injections, all trying to keep from replacing the knee. On the next visit, I asked about the partial knee replacement. Dr. Boyd said he was sure it would work, but told me that it was my decision. I waited a few months, still hurting in that inside spot.

I called and said “let’s do the partial knee replacement”. And we did and after the replacement, I was pain free.

As soon as I was walking well, I stepped up on the curb in Newport News and blew out my right knee. It sounded like a Bakers Cyst and I could not walk very well. I went to see, who else? Dr. Boyd Haynes. I then had surgery to repair the meniscal tear in this knee and had old scar tissue be removed as well. I am doing very well and still working at 75 years young.

And yeah, around the 9th of April, while moving an appliance (a fridge on a dolly) setting it down, my right elbow bent forward, causing me to tear my right triceps. As Dr. Boyd, (as I call him now since I’m keeping him in business) said, he had only seen one other tear like this, it was so different, he could add this to his list of new things he had to repair.

I have seen a few doctors in my 75 years and Dr. Boyd Haynes happens to be one of the best. His bedside manners are the best, by the way he puts you at ease. I feel very lucky to have Dr. Boyd Haynes as my OSC Doctor.

John L. Davis – Partial Knee Replacement

I am a retired Marine that loves hunting and fishing. Though, in 2014, I found it extremely painful to enjoy my retirement doing the things I love most. This was due to the pain I was having with my right knee. My wife suggested I see Dr. Haynes. I had been to other orthopedic doctors in the past and had cortisone injections that only helped for a very short time.

Dr. Haynes was able show me the anatomy of how my knee was hitting bone on bone. He suggested a partial knee replacement. I was very hesitant, since I had never had any type of surgery in the past. Dr. Haynes took the time to explain everything thoroughly. Though the recovery was difficult for the first couple of weeks, I now have full range of motion and I am pain free. Dr. Haynes and his staff gave me my life back. The deer and fish better watch out in 2015, cause Johnny Lee is back is full mode!

Milton Goldberg – Partial Knee Replacement

After 77 years of use, the cartilage in my left knee wore out. The knee hurt; it swelled, it was drained. Braces, ointment, orthotics, injections, and wishful thinking didn’t help.

Dr. Haynes saw me within days of my telephone call. X-rays revealed bone-on-bone and he advised surgery as the only effective,long-term option.

The partial knee replacement was done in a surgery center, after which I went home the same day. Once the anesthesia wore off the knee hurt, but pain was tempered by drugs.

Therapy began at home the next day. Recovery was slow and difficult, but I was assured that progress was being made. After about 2 weeks of therapy at home, I needed 4 or 5 weeks of therapy at an outside facility. After that, I gave up my walking cane and worked on a recumbent stationary bicycle for 2 months. By then, full range-of-motion was restored and I was able to everything I had done before the surgery.

Dr. Haynes’ work was excellent, as I am pain free, able to walk on a hike, ride a bicycle, cut the grass, dig in the yard, and climb a ladder, as I did before my knee failed. I also enjoy activities of all kinds with nine grandchildren.
