My knee has been feeling great and I am more athletic than I have ever been in the past. I am happy everything went well with the surgery because if it wasn't for Dr. Kennedy, I would probably be incapable of walking without pain.
I want to thank Dr. John and the whole staff at NYU! Because of the shockwave therapy not only was I able to run the NYC marathon, but I PR'ed by 41 minutes from my time last year!! It was an amazing day and I'm grateful to Dr. Kennedy, Jeremie and the whole team!!
I have been an athlete throughout my entire life and at the age of twenty-six, I was suffering from significant knee, ankle, and low back pain that simple NSAID's, ice, and rest could no longer help me with. I made an appointment with Dr. Kennedy this past November looking to find the root cause of my pain, and he and his team did not disappoint.
Before I saw Dr. John Kennedy I had suffered years of ankle pain after 2 surgeries on my OCD lesions that were unsuccessful. As a dancer, choreographer and a very athletic person, this was a challenging time for me. I could not do my work as a choreographer and I could hardly walk 5 blocks in NYC without stabbing pain at every step.
