Linda Pruitt – Hip Replacement

After a year of chronic hip pain and sciatic type pain, I obtained an appointment with Dr. Boyd Haynes. Eventually, it was determined I needed a hip replacement and I scheduled the surgery. I was always very active and the pain was interfering with my daily activities and had reached the point that even sitting for long periods was difficult. I found the office staff most professional and was seen at the scheduled appointment time, sometimes earlier!!

The surgery was scheduled at Mary Immaculate in Newport News. What a great hospital with knowledgeable, caring staff! I was discharged home the next day and back in my office with a cane in 2 weeks. Post-op pain was controlled easily and within three weeks, I did not have to use a cane.

Today I am one year post-op and completely pain free. I just walked five miles, I bike regularly and the range of motion in my hip is better than I had even years ago. The entire staff at OSC were great! As an RN I know what quality care is and the care I received from the initial appointment to my 1 year follow-up was excellent! Thank you Dr. Haynes and staff!
