Betty Staples – Knee Replacement

Dr. Haynes is a highly qualified orthopedic surgeon. It has been a year since Dr. Haynes completed a right knee replacement for me and I could not be happier with him, his staff, and their impressive medical facility.

A year ago, I was experiencing extreme right knee pain and knew a knee replacement was my only hope of walking again without a walker. I learned of Dr. Haynes when a lady, working at Macy’s, offered a chair for me to rest when she noticed I was having problems walking. After she finished checking out her customer, she asked me if I was experiencing knee problems and continued to tell me she had both knees replaced and that her doctor was Dr. Boyd Haynes. She praised him highly and went on to tell me how happy she was with her replacements. After arriving home, I conducted an internet search on Dr. Haynes and checked out “Best Doctors” in the region. I was impressed with my findings.

The next day, I called Dr. Haynes’ office, explained my problem and level of pain, and his staff went out of their way to give me an appointment two days later. I was most pleased with Dr. Haynes upon our meeting. He took the time to explain what was causing my knee pain, told me surgery was my only option at that point, and encouraged me to attend the pre-surgery class on knee and hip replacements presented by Mary Immaculate Hospital. I did–it was an excellent class and instructed me in everything I needed to knew about the procedure and its aftermath. The surgery went great and the hospital could not have been better.

Dr. Haynes encouraged me constantly to go home the day after surgery. Instead, I chose to go to the nursing home for rehab. This was a big mistake on my part and a terrible experience. I cannot recommend enough that you listen to the doctor and go home for rehab. After getting home, however, and beginning physical therapy at Kingston Physical Therapy in Hampton, I improved rapidly. It is wonderful walking without problems, going to the gym, and getting my life back.

I readily recommend Dr. Haynes for all orthopedic procedures he performs. I have the utmost confidence in him, Chris (his PA), and the rest of his staff. You are, without a doubt, in the best of hands with Dr. Haynes and the Orthopedic & Spine Center staff!
