John L. Henderson – Treatment for Sports Related Injuries

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesDr. Boyd Haynes first treated me in 2012 for a torn meniscus; an injury that drastically affected my lifestyle and daily schedule. Dr. Haynes diagnosed the injury and explained the nature and severity of the tear, then recommended a course of action for performing a procedure to repair the tear. But then Dr. Haynes did something I was not ready for, something I had not previously experienced from a physician or surgeon…he asked me what I thought was best for me…how did I want to proceed? That might not seem like a big deal, but to me it meant the difference between a physician who treats an injury and a physician who treats a person…an individual.

Since that time, Dr. Haynes has treated me multiple times for other sports-related injuries and performed surgeries and procedures using the same professional AND personal approach. I always find that the staff at OSC is professional, prompt, and thorough in their processing of my visits. I typically take advantage of the new Check-In kiosk which provides me with the option to avoid the normal check-in line, and I believe results in a more efficient check-in process. Thinking back to the numerous times I have visited the OSC complex, whether it be the main physicians’ complex or the MRI facility, I have never had to wait more than a few minutes before being called back to an examination room, and I cannot remember a visit where I waited more than the same few minutes before being seen by the treating physician or other staff member.

I would like to say that I will never again have reason to be treated for orthopedic injuries or conditions in the future, but I am certain that I will. And because of the wonderful care and treatment I have received over the past many years from Dr. Haynes and the staff at OSC, I will not hesitate to trust them with my well-being.

I would like to personally thank Dr. Haynes for his care for me over the years. I have and will continue to recommend his services to family and friends. I consider him more than my orthopedic physician…I consider him as a friend.

Sincerely,

John L. Henderson

Jessica D’Aurora – Tibial Tubercle Transfer and Lateral Retinacular Release – Knee Surgery

In July 2016, I was in a bad horseback riding accident that caused me to separate my AC joint, that’s how I first came to OSC.  I was under the care of Dr. Jeffrey Carlson at the time. After rehab on my shoulder, I started riding and competing again, only to dislocate my knee for the fourth time.

After I had an MRI done and results showed that I needed surgery on my knee, Dr. Carlson referred me to Dr. Boyd Haynes. I was very hesitant at first concerning the surgery, since I’ve had one knee surgery previously and I didn’t want to be out of riding commission for long. Dr. Haynes and staff assured me and addressed my concerns and worked with me on my time frame for recovery.

I ended up having a tibia tubercle transfer and lateral retinacular release surgery in November 2016. Dr. Haynes was one of the best surgeons I could have asked for to perform my surgery. He had such great bedside manner and even followed up with my family at 9 pm the evening of the surgery to check up on me, despite going into the Thanksgiving week. I was very impressed by his caring and professionalism.

I’m currently still recovering and was just released from physical therapy.  I’ve been able to get back to working out and doing cross fit and horseback riding. I still have some recovery to make, but my progress has been great and my knee is much more stable and comfortable than before. I have Dr. Haynes and the great staff at OSC to thank for all of that!

Steven Kast – Achilles Tendon Repair Surgery

IMG_1869

 

During the summer of 2012, I ruptured my right Achilles Tendon. Physical Activity is a big part of my life, so I sought the best solution and Orthopedic Surgeon in the community. I was referred to Dr. Boyd Haynes.

After my visit with Dr. Haynes we set a date for surgery. Dr. Haynes informed me that he was having great success in placing the patient in a boot only and not the traditional casting and immobilization. I was excited to hear this optimism and the news that I could be up and moving much quicker.
The surgery went well and, as promised, I was placed in the boot and given crutches with great after-care instructions. After a few days, I started to get myself moving using the crutches with light pressure. Then, I started walking moderately with the boot. In a few weeks, I was walking in the boot without crutches. A few weeks later I removed the boot and was walking with great care but moving nicely. I continued with my own therapy because I was motivated to get active again.

Approximately, three months from my surgery, I was running again and within six months I had forgotten I had the surgery. In fact, I was more active because my chronic Achilles pain was finally gone. Kudos to Dr. Haynes and his staff for the great surgery and most of all, the new recovery protocol. If you choose Dr. Boyd Haynes you are in good hands!
