George Crowder – Hip Replacement Surgery

Image of Dr. Boyd Haynes

I had a total hip replacement on September 11.  Prior to the surgery, I met with Dr. Boyd Haynes and  he explained exactly what he was going to do. The whole process went smoothly.

I have experienced little to no pain and I wish I had done this years ago.  The staff at OSC are extremely professional and I felt very comfortable going through this with them.

Dr. Haynes is the best and I would recommend him to anyone.

I will eventually get my left hip done and I want Dr. Haynes to perform that surgery too.    George Crowder

John De Mille – Spine and Knee Procedures

In the spring of 2019, I noticed muscle mass disappearing in my lower left leg and loss of strength. After going Dr. Jeffrey Carlsonto my PCM, which happens to be the US Navy since I am retired military, I got a referral out of the USN system to see a Spine Surgeon. I picked OSC, even though it is a long drive and traffic is terrible getting there from Va Beach. Boy, am I glad I did.

Got an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson within a week of contacting them, when I contacted some Docs here in Va Beach, I was told it would be at least 4 months.

Got my MRI done, some back x-rays and met with Dr. Carlson. He gave me what options were available. He did not push surgery, but that was one of the options. I selected surgery, as I had been down the PT road and had been dealing with Sciatica nerve pain several times in the past. I felt surgery was the best option to resolve the bulge disk issue.

After surgery, there were times when I had some numbness and some sciatica pain, but after about four weeks all resolved and no pain or numbness.

Dr. Carlson explained to me everything to expect and it was exactly how he said it would be.

I am very happy and satisfied that I used this practice, Dr. Carlson and his staff were very easy to work with and very informative.

I highly recommend this practice. In the past, when I needed some work on my knee, Dr. Boyd Haynes did it and he was outstanding as well. If you want professionals that are also a pleasure to work with, contact OSC.

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

Michael Noehl – “Jiffy” Hip Replacement Surgery and Physical Therapy

Image of Michael NoehlIn 2014, Dr. Boyd Haynes performed an anterior hip replacement surgery on me.  It was to relieve the painful effects of arthritis and an injury I received while serving in the Army, that was robbing me of an active lifestyle.

As time has passed, my hip and leg have healed and I have gained the strength back in my legs. Within six months of my surgery, I was looking for an exercise with less impact (than my former running) and I turned to bicycle riding. It was a slow start, but through encouragement by Dr. Haynes, and OSC Physical Therapy, I have worked up to riding 200 miles a month as a general routine.

I could not have done this if not for the expert work of Dr. Haynes and the staff at the Orthopedic Spine Center. My progress improves with each day – as noted through my achievement of riding 2500 miles in 2018 and riding my first Century ride – 100 miles in 6.5 hours.

Thanks again to Dr. Haynes and the OSC staff for giving me my life back.

Andrea Chavers – Hip Replacement Surgery and Physical Therapy

Image of Dr. John BurrowThank you, Dr. John Burrow (hip replacement surgery), Dr. Paige Tretter and Fred Wintermantel, PTA (Physical Therapy)!

My hip replacement surgery and Physical Therapy experience have been one-of-a-kind! Although it was physically challenging (and a little frightening) in the beginning, I really am enjoying my progress. Thanks to you all, I am now more mobile, walking without my cane for the first time in almost two years. I look forward to working with OSC in the future. I certainly will recommend your facility to anyone I know.

Dennis Bolton – Questions about Spine Surgery

Image of Dr. Jeffrey CarlsonI would like like to thank Orthopaedic & Spine Center for providing outstanding service. I reached out to Shannon Woods (from out-of-state) with many questions about a potential surgery. Despite not being a current patient, Shannon and Dr. Jeffrey Carlson showed compassion and took the time to answer my questions. Based on I my experience I would highly recommend OSC.

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!

Linda Rankin – Treatment for Hip Tendinitis

Image of Dr. Jeffrey CarlsonI went to Dr. Jeffrey Carlson because I was in severe pain and could hardly walk.  Dr. Carlson found that I had tendinitis in both hips, which also caused pain in my knees and legs. His Physician Assistant, Tonya, gave me cortisone injections in both hips.  Dr. Carlson sent me to Physical Therapy, across from his office.

 

 

Dr. Paige Tretter and Josh Hancock, PTA, worked together and instructed me in strength training exercises…they were very dedicated. Those exercises were the BEST thing that’s happened to me. I’m NO longer limping, can walk normally and they took the pain away. A BIG “THANK YOU” to everyone!!!

Tony Cerri – Bunion Repair Surgery

Image of Dr. Robert SnyderDr. Bob Snyder fixed my bunion on January 19th, 2019. I waited 8 months to evaluate my results because that is about normal for total healing. It came out perfectly – exactly in accordance with what Dr. Snyder told me was going to happen. Pain is gone. I’m wearing shoes I thought would never fit again. My foot looks normal.

His patient engagement and care are just right. One reason I went to him for surgery was his interaction with me as a person versus just another foot surgery. In retrospect, I am also very impressed with the way he predicted conditions of recovery and the various stages. He absolutely nailed it. I highly recommend Dr. Snyder.

I always come away from my appointments with all of my questions answered and a plan of care that we both agree on together.

I would recommend if you are in need of orthopedic surgery of any kind, please, please, meet with Dr. Haynes and talk to him about your case. I guarantee you will choose him as your doctor and you will be extremely satisfied with the outcome, whether you need surgery or not. Thank you, Dr. Haynes and staff, for taking such good care of me these past few years.
