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.

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.

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.

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.

Linda N. Joyner – Partial Knee Replacement

Having had a full right knee replacement the year before with a doctor at a different center, I was elated to learn that I qualified for a partial left knee replacement at OSC. Dr. Haynes explained the process, and everything went just as he had said. The recovery was smooth and comparatively easy, and now, a year later, I have no pain in that knee and great mobility again. I highly recommend OSC and Dr. Haynes.

William Watkins III – Partial Knee Replacement

Physician: Dr. Haynes

It was a dark and stormy night. Deep in the throes of depression, I was contemplating the misery that had befallen me through the inexorable degeneration of my left knee by osteoarthritis. Boyd Haynes III, MD, at OSC in Newport News, had tried valiantly to avoid surgery, to no avail. When the fateful day arrived that I was told all non-surgical remedies had been exhausted, Dr. Haynes informed me that I was candidate for his new robotic partial-knee replacement procedure. Scheduling the surgery for June 26th, 2013, I looked forward to having my normal mobility restored. The storm clouds began to clear; there was hope.

Full of angst and trepidation, I agonized over what I feared would be a very unpleasant experience; fraught with all of the perils that one associates with major surgery. Dr. Haynes and his physician’s assistant, Jamie McNeely, went out of their way to explain the details, reassuring me that the risks would be minimal and the results beyond my expectation. On the day of surgery, both were there to greet me with their bright, smiling, optimistic faces, assuring me that I could expect outstanding results.

As I write this testimonial, it is ten weeks post-surgery. The promised results have been nothing short of spectacular, bordering on miraculous. It is the dawn of a new era for me, with blue skies and bright sunshine. I now have ninety percent functionality of my left knee in the performance of normal daily activities, with little or no pain. I expect 100% full functionality within another month or two of physical therapy.

For anyone who has suffered the quality of life degeneration that I have for the past five years, I can personally attest to the fact that full and complete restoration is achievable. I am so very grateful to Boyd Haynes III, MD, Jamie McNeely, PA and OSC for restoring my normal ambulatory mobility. Thank you all!
