Meet the Providers

Kennedy-White Orthopaedic Center is the largest orthopedic group in Sarasota and the most comprehensive. It was founded by Dr. William Kennedy and Dr. Ronald White, orthopedic surgeons who began practicing in Sarasota, Florida in the 1970s.

Over the years, their group has grown to more than a dozen doctors strong, including some of the highest skilled and most personable physicians in Sarasota County. We also have physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and an occupational / hand therapist on-site.

Our physicians have trained in some of the finest medical schools and residencies in the country, and they pride themselves on offering first-rate surgical and medical care. Many of them have become experts through first-hand experience with sports injuries and degenerative conditions. Orthopedic medicine is constantly advancing, and our physicians regularly attend national meetings and seminars to ensure that they provide the most current state-of-the-art care.

We encourage you to ask your friends and neighbors about us. Or, just check out our many testimonials. Choosing a surgeon is an important decision and you deserve the best doctor available. If you have any questions about our physicians, or you would like an appointment, please call (941) 365-0655. We are here to assist you with all of your orthopaedic needs.
