Recently, I had a “trigger” finger problem. Sounds funny or at least it did to me. I visited Dr. Boyd Haynes for an office visit and he injected the site. As he predicted at the time, this was a temporary fix and I would need surgery to correct the situation.
First, let me let you in on the fact that I am not a good patient when it comes to surgery. My big problem is anesthesia (hope I spelled that right). Most doctors don’t really like patients to opt for local anesthesia, but since this was a minor surgery, he (Dr. Haynes) agreed to do a local. Well, it was local and it was a very pleasant experience. I felt comfortable and at ease. Dr. Haynes was professional and explained the procedure as it progressed. This surgery had no surprises, because Dr. Haynes was totally open about the procedure from the first office visit to my follow-up.
Now I know the surgical scar shouldn’t be a big deal, but I don’t think anyone really likes to see scars on their hands. Dr. Haynes used a natural crease in my hand as the point of entry. It’s been 3 weeks and the scar is healing nicely and once completely healed, no one will be able to tell the scar from crease. He has explained that it was possible I could have another one of these trigger problems with my fingers, but if so, then so be it. I know Dr. Haynes will correct the problem quickly, efficiently, and successfully. His trump card is his sense of humor and friendliness which goes a long way with me. If you are looking for a true professional orthopedic surgeon who knows his stuff, then Dr. Boyd Haynes is your physician.
