Alice Grady – Total Knee Replacement

Image of Alice Grady on a mountain topI am a 71-year-old outdoorsy woman living in Mathews County, VA. I started seeing Dr. Boyd Haynes for my knee over eight years ago. My knees were in bad shape back then, but I told him I didn’t want to do replacement. So, he worked with me, patiently trying every type of injection, physical therapy, etc. for years.

Eventually my knee became so bad, I couldn’t get on or off my horse without assistance, and I rode in constant pain. My knee woke me up at night, and I couldn’t easily go up or down stairs. I couldn’t even get out of my kayak! I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a new knee.

I was terrified (the reason I put it off so long), but my results were fabulous! I am so pleased Dr. Haynes was my surgeon. I was up and around quickly. I can get on and off my horse with no problem. I am riding much better now that I have a functional leg!   Life is so much better, I wish I had done it sooner. I even did some hiking in the Canadian Rockies this summer. And, not that it matters, but my scar is barely noticeable.

I highly recommend Dr. Boyd Haynes. When I need my other knee replaced, Dr. Haynes will definitely be my choice.
