Robert Hayes – Total Hip Replacement

Dr. Boyd Haynes, III

Dr. Boyd Haynes did a great job with my left hip arthroplasty. I picked him because of his experience, references from others, research, and his bedside manner. Post-surgery, I was motivated and anxious to get back to normal, so I picked the OSC Physical Therapy group for PT. Dr. Tom Toothaker and his staff (Bill Richards and Jay Norton) created and worked a plan for me that had me walking on my own with confidence within 4-5 weeks. They encouraged me to keep working on my own and provided a PT plan for me to follow to continue to build strength after being released from their care. Great group of professionals. If I need my right hip fixed, I know who to come to.

Pete Gallaccio – Hip Replacement Surgery

Dr. Haynes ready for surgeryI had a hip replacement performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes on December 9, 2020. Dr. Haynes and his staff were outstanding and made me feel completely comfortable about my decision to have the procedure. The Dr. and staff answered all the questions before, during, and after the procedure. In less than 5 days, I was walking without the support of walker or a cane. I contribute the success of the surgery not only towards the Dr. and staff but also to physically preparing my hip and leg prior to the surgery with strength-building exercises. I will not hesitate to use Dr. Haynes or OSC for any orthopaedic needs in the future.

Graffie B. Edler, Jr. – Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery

I’ll make this short and to the point. My name is Graffie B. Edler Jr. I had been having minor lower back problems for years but dismissed it as sciatica. As the years went on, my occasional numbness turned to pain. Eventually, my pain got to the point I couldn’t dismiss it any longer. I decided to seek a chiropractor which helped very little but did reveal my problems were more than sciatica. I had my chiropractor refer me to a neurologist because the spinal pain was getting unbearable.

Moving forward, my chiropractor referred me to Dr. Jeffrey Carlson. After sitting down with him and going over all options it seemed spinal fusion was my best option. Yes, I had friends and family tell me ( “No don’t do it. You’re talking about your spine “). The fear they had was something would go wrong. I had that same fear but put my trust in my supreme being and Dr. Carlson. After surgery, I spent one night in the hospital for observation. I felt muscular discomfort from surgery but no spinal pain. My recovery consisted of light exercise with no bending, lifting, or twisting. After six weeks of light exercising, I started the recommended physical therapy.

Now, I’m happy to say I’m back to work pain free. I have thanked Dr. Carlson several times for being a knowledgeable and skilled surgeon. If you can relate to this testimonial. I recommend you at least have a consultation with Dr. Carlson.

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!

Betty Deans – Physical Therapy for Musculoskeletal Injury

 

Just recently finished my Physical Therapy at OSC and wanted to say to anyone that is looking to go into therapy, you hopefully have a choice where you want to go.  My experience at OSC (Orthopaedic & Spine Center) was a very positive one.  I found each and every person I dealt with extremely personable, professional and made me feel a part of a team, oriented with one goal, to get me back to pre-injury status.

My team was Dr. Jamie Swale, DPT, Jonathan LoRusso PTA, Cait, & Chad. Hopefully, I won’t have to have anymore physical therapy, BUT if I do, you can be assured it will be at OSC.

Kenneth Chaney – Physical Therapy for Muscle Injury

 

I am 82 years of age and have been suffering with a muscle injury for over 5 years and was taking Dry Needling. It was suggested that I participate in the Physical Training Program.

Tom Toothaker, DPT and his assistant Rachel, guided me in this endeavor and I was released on November 3, 2020. Their constant guidance and insurance that I complete each exercise properly has resulted in almost a pain free movement of my muscle injury.

I would like to thank them for their time and patience and for giving me a new lease on life. They should be congratulated for a job well done. My thanks to Dr. Jeffrey Carlson for his referral.

Shawn Ross – Physical Therapy

There are not enough words to describe Dr.  Tom Toothaker. He is the best doctor I’ve ever had. He pushed me to do my exercises and called me out when he thought I wasn’t doing my best. His bedside manner is 2nd to none. He made me very comfortable from our 1st appointment until my last. I would highly recommend him to any and everyone. And if I ever need Physical Therapy again, I will come back to him.

Timothy Williams – Lumbar Fusion Surgery

Jeffrey Carlson, M.D.

I am in NO Pain. That alone is amazing. I’ve been in pain like 5 years. Now with this lumbar fusion performed by Dr. Jeffrey Carlson, my back feels stronger and I feel my posture is better. I’m 6’1″ tall and now I think I stand a little straighter. I’m six weeks post-op right now. I’m so happy I no longer have a “bad back”.  Thanks!
