Physician– Dr. Boyd W. Haynes III
My name is Allan Cohen. I am semi-retired and live in South Florida. My right hip had extensive arthritis, making it difficult and painful to walk. X-rays showed I needed a hip replacement. Living in South Florida, there is no shortage of good surgeons to perform such an operation. But, I knew the only place to go was Orthopaedic and Spine Center and see Dr. Boyd Haynes.
Dr. Haynes performs hip replacement from the front/side rather than the old, more common rear approach procedure. The results are radical. The pain is greatly reduced and recovery goes from 3-4 months to 6 weeks. After 1 week, I was able to walk without the use of a walker. After 2 weeks, I was able to walk without a cane. It is now 3 weeks and I am taking 20 minute daily walks without pain. I feel 90-95% recovered. It is truly amazing how quickly the recovery took place.
Besides being an excellent surgeon, Dr. Haynes truly cares about his patients and will take as much time as necessary to answer your questions. I feel grateful that this doctor was the one that operated on me.
