Testimonials: Shoulder - Frozen Shoulder

Lisa Jackson – Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

I was scheduled to have Rotator Cuff surgery on my right shoulder with Dr. Boyd Haynes in September of 2016. I chose another physician and I ended up with a frozen shoulder. I moved here, from Richmond VA in 2015, with fears from another doctor in Richmond, who performed a spinal surgery wrong and I had to have a life or death revision surgery. Dr. Boyd Haynes explained to me what to expect with the frozen shoulder as he smiled with his beautiful personality.

I saw him today January 27,2017 in regards to some issues with my left arm. Dr. Boyd Haynes is honest and trustworthy. The community respects him dearly. From this day forward, I have no doubt who one of my favorite orthopedic doctors with OSC will be and that is Dr. Boyd Haynes. My only regret is I did not get him to perform my Rotator Cuff surgery in September of 2016. I am sure I would not have ended up with frozen shoulder.

Hats off and Kudos to you Dr. Boyd Haynes!!!!!! You are an awesome doctor.

Thomas Shelton – Shoulder (Rotator Cuff & Frozen Shoulder)

Patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes
Surgery in December 2013

I had pain in my right shoulder for decades as a result of playing sports in my youth. Over the past few years, it became progressively worse, and I sought out Dr. Haynes, as he was highly recommended by several people.

I had surgery on my right shoulder for a completely severed rotator cuff and also for “frozen shoulder syndrome” which resulted from a lack of use.

I can say that after surgery, I am now completely pain-free, and my only regret is “why I didn’t do it sooner?” I highly recommend Dr. Haynes and the staff at Orthopaedic & Spine Center.

Brian Killough – Shoulder Surgery

I have been a competitive golfer since I was 9 years old and played golf at the University of Virginia in the 1980s. Likely, as the result of years of golf and some acute lifting injuries, I developed pain and lack of strength in my right and left shoulders at about the age of 40. It was nearly impossible to lift anything with an extended arm and golf required anti-inflammatory medication and ice. The team at OSC evaluated the situation and diagnosed the condition as a SLAP tear. As my right shoulder was the worst, it was decided that I needed surgery in October 2009. Dr. Marty Coleman performed the surgery and placed 3 pins in my right shoulder to repair the torn muscles. The initial recovery was quite slow, due to a “frozen shoulder” condition, but the persistence and patience of the OSC Physical Therapy team helped resolve the situation and I reached a full recovery in about 6 months. I later returned to golf in the spring of 2010 and happily had a “pain free” right shoulder.

Unfortunately, my left shoulder started causing similar issues in 2012. It was decided that I would have a similar surgery in October 2013. Dr. Marty Coleman performed another successful surgery and placed 2 pins in my left shoulder. The recovery in late 2013 was quite rapid and the OSC Physical Therapy team helped provide exercises for stretching and strengthening the repaired muscles. Thanks to the outstanding and professional work of Dr. Coleman and the patient and caring OSC Physical Therapy team, I have returned to completely “pain free” golf! Now with some “surgery” on my golf game, I hope to return to competitive golf again in the future.

Yvette Ferguson – Shoulder Surgery

My name is Yvette, I’m 47 years old and I live in Virginia. I have had a frozen shoulder for years. The pain has been so awful. I went to an Orthopaedic Doctor, but they didn’t want to do anything for me. So, I asked my regular doctor to give me someone else. I was referred to Dr. Boyd W. Haynes. The first day I saw Dr. Haynes, he was so great, he talked to me, shook my hand, and got to work. He gave me a shot for pain and set me up for an MRI. Then, on my 2nd visit, he told me that after all the years of pain and all I have tried to do, that it was time for surgery. I was upset at first, but I felt inside that Dr. Haynes had it under control. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Haynes came and talked to me and told me everything that he was going to do. Then, after surgery, he came and checked on me and told me what went on in surgery. I went home that night. Dr. Haynes called me at home to see how I was doing.
If I ever had to do it again, I would want Dr. Haynes to do the surgery. The only thing I can say about Dr. Haynes and his staff is that they are the best people and that Dr. Haynes is a wonderful, great person! Thank you, Dr. Haynes! He gave me my life back. Couldn’t have done it without him.
Thanks!
