"Getting athletes and everyone else back to their sports and activities…there's nothing better. I love healthy patients!" beams Dr. Park when asked about his favorite part of being the South Bay's most prominent foot and ankle surgeon. He is a highly-skilled, warm, and well-regarded surgeon who has a deep compassion and understanding for all of his patients. His skills were honed at the world renowned Hospital for Special Surgery, which is consistently ranked the #1 Orthopedic hospital in the country. Dr. Park's own lifelong athletic pursuits cultivated his passion an orthopaedic surgeon. The Southern California native is a veteran body boarder, and NCAA Division1 UCLA tennis player who brings an athlete's commitment to his patients' treatment and recovery. "Competition is in my blood. I know how much is at stake in getting healthy and strong again," says Dr. Park. This attitude and his outstanding surgical skills are why he has successfully treated—and motivated—many high level athletes and professional dancers back to competition-level performance. Dr. Park has a broad range of experience in complex foot and ankle surgery, a specialty he expertly brings to patients of all backgrounds. He treats ankle pain and instability, cartilage injury, bunions, stiff/painful big toe, ankle and foot deformity, arthritis, tendon inflammation and tears, stress fractures, knee meniscal tears, and bursitis. He is also uniquely qualified in treating both adult and pediatric general orthopedic trauma (fractures/injuries of upper and lower extremities). For the past several years he has successfully used new treatments, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, as an alternative to surgical intervention.

Dr. Ken Park is a very caring Doctor and surgeon. He evaluates your situation carefully with attentive listening to your issues. He has a very pleasant and confident demeanor just like the previous reviews have stated. I like him very welland we are starting with a conservative approach to my ankle issues to see how we progress. I am hoping and praying that the suggested plan of action that he has set out for me works. Based on my previous research on Dr. Park, I am confident with his expertise and judgment and the way he treats his patients. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Ken Park to treat my ankle.

Always pleasant. I recommended to my co-workers, friends who has similar issue I had. For a year, I suffered by being misdiagnosed by podiatrist. Dr. Park found the real issue in two minutes when he saw my MRI record. My search is over. He is the best for me!

This is our 1st time @ this office, Showed up 40 mins early & when we were called in to room the nurse & staff was just rushing to get us in the room. It took so long that we hadto go back & forth into the waiting room lobby to drink from a water fountain. Which then took about an hours til the Dr. Parks came in and spent about 12-15 min discussing the X-rays and recommendation. The nurse & staff seemed very frustrated & overwhelmed with the hectic office surroundings that it affected the courtesy & being polite even after we thanked them every chance or as they were helping us. "But NO thank you or your welcome out of the staff or nurse." Leaves doubt of the kind of service to expect in the future.

Dr. Kenneth Park is one of the best doctors that I have ever seen. He is very respectful and courteous. He's very positive and gives his patient encouragement. His smile is warm and calming. This visit was my followup visit todiscuss my MRI results. He actually showed me the film from my MRI and explained to me in detail what was causing the problem. I would highly recommend Dr. Park.
