Brown Weaver – Knee Surgery for a Ruptured Patella Tendon

IMG_5708

I fell down a flight of steps while visiting my daughter in Hawaii 6 years ago. Upon my return, I set up an appointment with Dr. Boyd Haynes because he did my rotator cuff surgery previously. After consulting with Dr. Haynes, he advised me that I had a ruptured patella tendon of the left knee and it would require surgery to repair. This did not make me happy !!

We have 9 grandchildren and they all “play” something so, I really needed to get this fixed and get my mobility back !! The surgery went well and Dr. Haynes put me back together. I felt the surgery was a breeze but, the rehab part was hard work. A surgeon can only do so much and then it is up to the PATIENT to put in the WORK !! PT at Dr. Haynes office gave me all the help and encouragement I needed.

I DID THE WORK and in 6 months, I was running 2 to 3 miles every other day at our sports complex here, in York County. Now, I ride my bike to the sports complex, run 45 minutes and ride my bike back home 3 days a week. I will be running a 5 K in May.

Dr. Haynes and his staff are the real deal. My injury was severe but, thanks to a great surgeon and his staff, I can run, bike, swim, kayak, etc. I am now 68 years old and enjoy being VERY ACTIVE.

I was blessed to know and have such caring, professional people, all doing their part to make me whole again. Dr.Boyd Haynes and OSC, thank you all so very much.

Thelma Jones-Lopez – Spinal Fusion Surgery

In October of this year, I found myself in the unexpected position of needing surgery. Fortunately, I had a very good past experience with OSC, so when I was referred to Dr. Carlson, I felt relieved. Dr. Carlson was very thorough in explaining why I needed to have surgery. He put my fears to rest. Needless to say I had a good outcome. His staff and the hospital staff at Mary Immaculate were wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Carlson to anyone seeking a good surgeon.

Frances Greene – Spinal Stenosis Surgery

Dear Dr. Carlson,
I want to thank you for relieving my back pain several years ago. I had a bad back for years. Two other doctors operated on me, but told me they didn’t know what to do about my upper spine.

My regular doctor made an appointment with you. You took x-rays and an MRI and said my spine was closing up and needed surgery. You operated and put in two rods and ten pins to open my spine.

What a blessing! That was several years ago and I haven’t been bothered by it since. I will never forget Dr. Carlson for giving me relief!

Thank you sincerely,
Frances Greene

Garland Whitley – Partial Knee Replacement

rio-and-haynes

Dr. Haynes performed a partial knee replacement for me last year. I had previously consulted with another doctor who said I had to have a full knee replacement, but I’m glad I went to Dr. Haynes for another opinion. The surgery and after care went very well and I am pleased with the results.

Before surgery, I was walking crooked and was in pain. Everything is fine now. I highly recommend him.

Mike Ancel – Thumb Reconstruction

IMG_9990

I went to OSC with left thumb pain that I had been experiencing for 2 years. After x-rays and a thorough discussion with Doctor Boyd Haynes III, it was determined to be caused by arthritis and bone spurs. I then had surgery to remove the above, followed by 4 weeks in a cast. Pinnacle Hand Therapy handled my rehab with flexibility and strength training.

I wish I had gone for the consultation and surgery sooner!! This was a very positive experience for me as I no longer have any pain! So glad Dr. Haynes and Pinnacle Hand Therapy took care of me. I highly recommend them all!

Paul Heaton – Lumbar Spine Fusion Surgery

I was having trouble walking and felt that I could not continue walking without resting first. I made an appointment with OSC and was referred to Dr. Carlson.

After an MRI, l was made aware that the lumbar region of my back was shot. I am 66 years old and was informed I needed a lumbar fusion to correct the situation. After one round of shots, which were not helping, I decided to have the surgery after researching Dr. Carlson’s credentials. Dr Carlson was very professional in all my appointments and did not pull any punches related to my condition and surgery required.

I had the surgery and was up walking a couple of hours after my surgery with no pain in my back. The services provided by Dr. Carlson’s plan were all done professionally and as he told me during recovery and through therapy. I would recommend Dr. Carlson to anyone needing surgery related to the spine. He is the best without a doubt,and gave me my life back. Thank you so much, Dr. Carlson and staff.

Robert Morrisette – Shoulder Surgery

IMG_4570

Dr. Martin Coleman

I am a very active 63 year old man who has been experiencing pain in my left shoulder for over six years. There never seemed to be the right time for surgery. When I begin to lose  function and the pain increased I went to see orthopaedic surgeons in search for a surgical repair. After having an MRI one surgeon lectured me for waiting too long and more or less said that he would attempt to repair the three torn and retracted tendons but the repair would probably fail. Another surgeon informed me that the only way to address my shoulder was complete joint replacement. After doing my own research I decided to seek a third opinion.

I was aware of the positive reputation of OSC and made an appointment to see Dr. Coleman. Dr Coleman reviewed the MRI report and gave me hope that a repair to two of the tendons could be successful. It’s been a little over four months since my surgery and I am recovering well, gaining strength, and experiencing less pain. The two hour drive to Newport News from my NC home was well worth it.

I am thankful to and have great respect for Dr. Coleman and OSC!

Nikki Kuhn – Spine Fusion Surgery

In June 2015, I first saw Dr. McFarland for severe back pain. After physical therapy and epidural shots, it was was decided that surgery was my option. Dr. McFarland told me exactly what to expect with my spinal fusion. Dr. McFarland saw me and my family after surgery and assured us all of how the surgery went. Dr. McFarland and Erin gave exceptional care and assurance.

Nine months later, I’m a new person. No more pain. Thank you so much for giving me my life back. I would recommend Dr. McFarland to anyone.
