Ian Savage- Elliott, MD
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. My current research topics include Osteochondral Lesions, Platelet Rich Plasma, and Ankle Fusion. Some of the presentations I have done include the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (Chicago, Illinois) and the American Foot and Ankle Society (Miami, Florida). These experiences have greatly improved my confidence as an academic physician. I also presented at the International Cartilage Repair Society in Izmir, Turkey, where my poster presentation was recognized as one of the top 10% at the conference. The trip to Turkey was an amazing cultural experience that I will never forget. Thank you so much Dr Kennedy; I’m truly appreciative of everything that you have done for me. You taught how to write, publish, present, and practice as a physician. Finally, thank you for introducing me to a research environment that continues to attract intelligent, talented individuals who are not only great colleagues but also great friends, and I consider myself very privileged to be among them. You are a great surgeon, leader and mentor.
