John Gale Kenney, MD FACS (born January 13, 1950) is an American plastic surgeon and artist who served our community.


Kenney practiced with Milton Edgerton and focused on surgery to repair burns and traumatic injuries. In 1984, they wrote the influential article “The bladder flap for urethral reconstruction in total phalloplasty.”

After Kenney retired from medicine, he moved to South Carolina and focused on his art career.
