Shelley Vasseur – Endoscopic Carpal & Cubital Tunnel Release Surgeries

Dr. Boyd Haynes

Dr. Boyd Haynes, ready for surgery

I would like to thank Dr. Boyd Haynes and his staff for not one, but two successful endoscopic carpal tunnel and endoscopic cubital tunnel surgeries; one on my right wrist and elbow and a month later on my left wrist and elbow. I researched extensively prior cubital surgery and HIGHLY recommend Dr. Haynes for his endoscopic expertise .

Traditional cubital tunnel surgery would have left considerable scars, and weeks of down time and physical therapy.

I could not have made a better decision to travel to Virginia from out of state to have these procedures done. I was on the road and pain free about an hour after waking up from surgery each time. No physical therapy required and I have 95% of my strength back 10 days post-surgery. Thank you again, Dr. Haynes!

Martha Miller – Non-surgical Treatment for Wrist Tendinitis

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI recently suffered with tendinitis in my wrist. It appeared as a small cyst at my wrist, in line with my thumb. I suffered with it for several weeks, until it began waking me up at night if I moved it the wrong way. Dr. Boyd Haynes diagnosed it as a form of tendinitis and suggested a cortisone injection. By that same evening, I noticed a lessening of the pain and the following day, there was only a slight tenderness where the injection had been. Within 2 days, there was no pain at all. It has now been 2 mos. and I am still pain free. Lesson learned….don’t hesitate to get a painful joint looked at. It doesn’t always mean surgery. Dr. Haynes has performed surgery on me for carpal tunnel and trigger finger release. Sometimes surgery is the best option; however, I appreciate the fact that Dr. Haynes always offers the least invasive approach first….and it has given me immediate relief every time!

Sandy Roberson – Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesRecently, my sister had Carpal Tunnel surgery and she had a 5 week recovery.

I have needed this surgery for along time now, but am a self employed Hairstylist. Plus, I’m single and live alone. I was really excited to find a doctor that could do the surgery with a three day recovery.

Thank you, Dr. Boyd Haynes, for fixing my hand with minimal recovery. You are awesome!

Nick DiMarino – Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

Photo of Dr. Boyd HaynesI had carpal tunnel pain in both arms and hands. Dr. Boyd Haynes did surgery on my right hand about a year ago. At that time, I told him I was going to wait on the left side because the wrist strap (brace) was allowing me to sleep with no pain. He said, “That’s fine, come back to see me when it tells you to.”

I went 3 months without getting a full night’s sleep because of the pain in my left hand and arm. My arm would wake me with so much pain, it was like it I was in a burning pile of coal.  It would take about an hour for the pain to go away, I would get back in bed and it would fire up in less than 20 minutes, same fiery pain again.

I told Dr. Haynes that it was time to take care of the pain and he scheduled the surgery. The first night after surgery I didn’t sleep much (not sure why), but the second night and every night since, I have slept like a baby. The amazing thing was that after the third day, I couldn’t wait to wake up to see how much better I was than the day before.

It has been less than 2 weeks now and I can do almost anything I want with my left hand with no pain. I’m not saying another doctor couldn’t have done as good, but Dr. Haynes is my hero now. I had no idea that the amount of sleep I was losing was affecting my entire life. THANK YOU, DR. HAYNES!!!

I highly recommend this procedure for anyone suffering with this problem. By the way, after I had the surgery, I have taken a total of 2 Aleve tablets, period.

Ashley White – Bilateral Carpal and Cubital Tunnel Release Surgery

Dr. Boyd Haynes accurately diagnosed me (after a misdiagnosis at another clinic) and quickly took action to remedy my issues. He took time to explain the different options for relieving my bilateral carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes. We decided surgery was the best option to meet the demands of my work and at-home life.

Before surgery, he had wonderful bedside manner and made me feel comfortable. I felt confident I was in the right hands. After surgery, he called to ensure I was following the after-care protocol. Should I ever need his expertise again, I will not hesitate to see him.
