James B. Pierce – Hip Replacement

Physician – Dr. Boyd Haynes

I had a deteriorating hip over a period of 6 to 8 months. Shortly after seeing Dr. Haynes, I had to start using crutches and a wheelchair until he could operate on me using the anterior hip replacement method. The surgery went very well and Dr. Haynes explained what had taken place. He also said that I won the award for “the worst hip of the year”. It is not that way anymore. I used a walker during the first week after surgery, but was walking with no pain in the hip. My muscles were still sore, but that got better very quickly. By the middle of the second week, I would have to try and remember where I had left my cane, as I kept walking off without it and not noticing that it was missing.

To me this was a “miracle surgery”. The new hip never gave me any pain and as my muscles healed, I could do everything that I had been able to do previously with a “normal” hip; even play golf after only 4 weeks.

Dr. Haynes and his staff were kind, caring and knowledgeable. They followed up to make sure everything was going well. Dr. Haynes even added almost 7/8 of an inch to my right leg to level my hips so I wouldn’t be limping anymore. I would recommend Dr. Haynes and his staff to anyone needing a hip replacement.
