Patient Comments (1)
in Yakima, WA |
I just had a complete knee replacement done by Dr. Kennedy. The surgery went well; I was home after 1 day and using a walker to get around. Within 2 weeks, I was pretty much on my own and recovering nicely. Dr. Kennedy had me do PT prior to surgery, which I think aided in my speedy recovery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kennedy for orthopedic needs!
