Charlotte Mitchell – Total Knee Replacement & Physical Therapy

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesMy second knee replacement was completed in December 2019 and performed by my most trusted OSC Physician, Dr Boyd Haynes.

Although this knee replacement was physically challenging (due to intense pain and swelling) in the beginning, I had no fears because I knew I was in the best hands of the most professional Physical Therapy Center on the Peninsula, OSC Therapy Center.

 

Dr. Tom Toothaker, Clinic Director of OSC Physical Therapy and Josh Hancock, Physical Therapist Assistant, guided me through 3+ months of many challenging exercises; various pain relief techniques, motivation when I felt down due to my impatience and professional genuine care!!

 

Thanks to Dr. Toothaker, PTA Hancock, and the great team of assistants, for improving the quality of my life once again! I am now fully mobile; walking without my cane, squatting and most importantly racing up and down stairs for the first time in many, many years.

My friends can’t believe how well I did with my PT and how I was motivated by the OSC staff! I highly recommend your facility to anyone! Thank you all so much for helping me to walk once again without pain!

Diana “Dee” Burcher – Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

Dr. Boyd Haynes, IIII had Carpal Tunnel surgery on March 5th. Went back to work that Monday. Surgery was a breeze, as the team at The Surgical Pavilion at Mary Immaculate is above and beyond!

Dr. Boyd Haynes is amazing!! He told me everything I needed to do after surgery. Keep hand elevated for two days… and by Saturday, I removed the bandage and started using the hand/fingers as much as possible… and all was UP hill from then on. Moving my fingers, etc. Minimal pain. 3 weeks later and getting almost back to normal. Can’t wait to get the other one done.

Ann Hall – Two Hip Replacement Surgeries

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesDr. Boyd Haynes has quite a “fan club” and I am a member. He has been my surgeon for, now, two hip replacements and my recoveries and long-term outcomes have been most successful. His amazing surgical skill, his warmth and graciousness, combined with his wonderful sense of humor with his patients, make the process of serious surgery much easier to bear.

He will not disappoint and I would not hesitate to recommend him as the surgeon you want and need.

Sharon Oliver – Multi-Level Cervical Discectomy Surgery

Image of Dr. Jeffrey CarlsonMy name is Sharon.  I relocated from New York and needed a chiropractic doctor and my friend recommended Orthopaedic & Spine Center  to me.  I was given an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson,  I went to OSC because of an old neck injury that happened in 1998. I recently had experienced numbness in my pinky and ring finger in both hands and I was walking like I was intoxicated (and I don’t drink).

Dr. Carlson put me into Physical Therapy, which really didn’t help much.  So, I had to have surgery.  Because I was so scared about having the surgery, I prayed for Dr. Carlson and the work that he had to do, stepping out in faith.  I have no regrets after the surgery.  As of today, I am doing great.  I highly recommend Dr. Carlson.

Tom Buchinsky – Total Hip Replacement

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI could hardly walk into Dr. Boyd Haynes’ office. I had been misdiagnosed by many doctors. After a fast look at my hip x-ray, he determined that a total hip replacement was in order.

Dr. Haynes did the surgery on February 26, 2020 and within two weeks, I was driving my car and the walker was put away. The office staff was awesome and very encouraging.

Thank you, to Dr. Haynes and your office staff, for giving me back my life!

Debbie Lehrer – My Husband’s Total Knee Replacement

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI’m writing on behalf of my husband. He had a total knee replacement on 2/19/20, performed by OSC’s Dr. Boyd Haynes. I’ve been so impressed with the entire process, from the scheduling of the surgery to how quickly his disability paperwork was submitted, to the entire experience at the hospital. We were both greeted so nicely at Mary Immaculate Hospital..all of the nurses were fantastic, the care he got was great. While he was in the recovery area, one of the nurses called twice to update me on his progress. His surgery was at 7:30 AM and we were home by noon.

That night, I got a call from Dr. Haynes to check on how my husband was doing. That personal touch, is unheard of these days!  Encompass Home Health called the night of his surgery and set up times for the nurse and physical therapist to come out to our home the next day. I had 100% confidence in both the nurse and Physical Therapists. The Physical Therapist, Sam, she was fantastic. She really got him moving and motivated. He stopped using the walker most of the time on day 4.

He’s now 3 weeks post-op and no longer is even using the cane. He has been doing outpatient Physical Therapy w/ Dr. Tom Toothaker at OSC, he is really wonderful. He’s following the home exercise program that Tom made for him.

From the spouse’s point of view, this entire experience was wonderful. With Dr. Haynes surgical skill, with the Home Health PT and Tom’s physical therapy program, my husband is having a wonderful recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Boyd Haynes and OSC to everyone!!

Corey Rodriguez – Physical Therapy for Work-Related Back Injury

Image of Dr. Jamie SwaleI went to Dr. Mark McFarland for a back injury I sustained at work. He told me what he thought the cause was and that I should do Physical Therapy before considering surgery or other options. I 100% supported this decision.

The Physical Therapists I worked with did an awesome job helping figure out what worked and what didn’t. The facilities and equipment was state of the art. The staff is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. And the best part is I felt like Dr. Jamie Swale and Fred Wintermantel were my friends. I hope to see them again, but not in these circumstances.

I would recommend OSC to anyone with an injury or needing physical therapy. Thanks again Dr. McFarland, Jamie, Fred, and everyone else who helped me.

Steve Smith – Lumbar Spine Surgery for Spinal Stenosis

Dr. Jeffrey CarlsonI have spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, and disc trouble. I was in a great deal of pain, from my right hip through the knee, down the right side of my leg and across the top of my foot. I felt like the mummy -dragging my leg behind me. I tried shots in various locations. They would not work very long, if at all.

I finally had Dr. Jeffrey Carlson do surgery, he cleaned up the area around the nerve and disc. I went home with no pain, other than some minor stuff around the incision site. In just two weeks, I can walk around Walmart with ease. So what I’m saying people is – don’t mess around, get the operation and be free of the pain.

Ricky Watlet – Total Knee Replacement

Dr. Boyd Haynes, IIIAfter a year of ongoing right knee pain, my doctor (at a different practice) decided I needed a partial knee replacement. In November, 2018, I had the surgery performed. For the first three weeks after surgery, I was improving steadily. In the fourth week, I started to have pain in and above the knee, with a clicking or crackling feeling. My doctor told me all of this was normal and that it would take a year to heal.

After months of pain, in October, 2019 he performed surgery to remove scar tissue from the previous surgery and to correct a torn meniscus. Six weeks later, the pre-surgical pains were still there.

A friend and patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes recommended that I see him. I did, and after taking x-rays and reviewing my previous MRI, he said I would need a total knee replacement to correct the problems.

Dr. Haynes performed the surgery in mid-February, 2020. During surgery, he found and removed a large bone fragment embedded in the muscle and tendon. Within one week of surgery, I was able to switch from a walker to a cane. On the twelfth day after surgery, I was able to walk up stairs normally. This was weeks earlier than my previous surgery with a different doctor. I realize that not everyone will be able to do this in twelve days without pain, but I give full credit to Dr. Haynes and his surgical team for their excellent work to allow my quick recovery.
