Kennedy is board certified in general surgery and surgical critical care. He sees patients in the Trauma One Center at OU Medical Center, the state's only level one trauma center, performing general trauma and acute care surgery and surgical critical care. He has specific experience in open reduction and internal fixation of ribs (rib plating) and resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta.

Kennedy comes to OU Physicians from Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, where he was a trauma surgeon. He completed a surgical critical care fellowship at the University of Texas–Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and completed his surgical residency at the University of South Alabama Medical Center, Mobile. He earned his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine, Portsmouth, Dominica, West Indies, graduating cum laude. He completed his clinical training in New York City and Miami. He is a member of the American Board of Surgery.

With more than 1,000 doctors and advanced practice providers, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts.

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City, Lawton and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
