Debbie Lehrer – My Husband’s Total Knee Replacement

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI’m writing on behalf of my husband. He had a total knee replacement on 2/19/20, performed by OSC’s Dr. Boyd Haynes. I’ve been so impressed with the entire process, from the scheduling of the surgery to how quickly his disability paperwork was submitted, to the entire experience at the hospital. We were both greeted so nicely at Mary Immaculate Hospital..all of the nurses were fantastic, the care he got was great. While he was in the recovery area, one of the nurses called twice to update me on his progress. His surgery was at 7:30 AM and we were home by noon.

That night, I got a call from Dr. Haynes to check on how my husband was doing. That personal touch, is unheard of these days!  Encompass Home Health called the night of his surgery and set up times for the nurse and physical therapist to come out to our home the next day. I had 100% confidence in both the nurse and Physical Therapists. The Physical Therapist, Sam, she was fantastic. She really got him moving and motivated. He stopped using the walker most of the time on day 4.

He’s now 3 weeks post-op and no longer is even using the cane. He has been doing outpatient Physical Therapy w/ Dr. Tom Toothaker at OSC, he is really wonderful. He’s following the home exercise program that Tom made for him.

From the spouse’s point of view, this entire experience was wonderful. With Dr. Haynes surgical skill, with the Home Health PT and Tom’s physical therapy program, my husband is having a wonderful recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Boyd Haynes and OSC to everyone!!
