Having an opportunity to work with Dr. Kennedy’s team over the past 8 years has given me a unique perspective on seeing things come full circle. I was first his patient when I was a senior in high school after a baseball injury, and ultimately started to do research with him as an undergraduate in college.
Thank you very much for your great support. I am a Foot and Ankle surgeon from Japan. Over the last two years, I have been working very closely with Dr. Kennedy. I have had the opportunity to become involved a variety of new research that we believe will be very valuable in the care of orthopedic patients.
I worked at HSS with Dr. Kennedy from July of 2011 until June of 2013. During this time, I was fortunate enough to join a highly motivated academic team investigating athletic injuries of the foot and ankle and allowed ample room to pursue my own research interests. With the help of generous gifts from your families, we were able to investigate the role of biological adjuncts in repairing cartilage injuries.
I am an orthopedic surgery resident at Jersey City Medical Center in Jersey City, NJ. I started working with Dr. Kennedy several years ago during my third year of medical school. It was during that time where I was taught how to conduct basic science and clinical research. My experience was invaluable, and I decided to take an additional year devoted to orthopedic research.
I got the chance to work with Dr. Kennedy during multiple summers while in medical school, and it has been a fabulous experience! Through working with the Kennedy Research Team I have published 8 papers and made numerous presentations both nationally and internationally.
I’m currently a 3rd year Medical Student at the University of Maryland. I worked with Dr. Kennedy for two years leading up to my matriculation to medical school. My work as a part of the research team was not only a large part of my acceptance to medical school, but will continue to impact my career through residency and many years beyond that.
Were it not for Dr. Kennedy’s mentorship and guidance I would not be where I am today. I feel fortunate to be pursuing my passion as a resident in the orthopaedic surgery program at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL. I have had the honor and privilege to work with Dr. Kennedy for the past 7 years.
I would like to thank you very much for your generous support for Dr. Kennedy’s research team. I started with Dr. Kennedy this January as a part of my medical school curriculum in The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
My name is Sean Flynn and I’m currently undertaking my residency in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery in Ireland, working in Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin. I was fortunate enough as a medical student to spend some time with Dr. Kennedy and his team at HSS in summer 2013.
