Dr Park is originally from Korea, but he grew up most of his youth in Augusta, Georgia. He comes from a long line of physicians in his family. Although he has no family ties to Michigan, he moved here in 2011 as he wanted to join a department devoted to research and clinical advancement of orthopedic surgery worldwide. He is highly active in research at Beaumont and help design new minimally invasive surgical techniques. His professional goal is to treat all his patients like he would treat his family members, and guide them to pick the least invasive approach to the spine if all nonoperative treatment has failed. His main interest is in motion preservation and minimally invasive spine surgery. Outside of work, he is active in his church and is busy raising twin girls with his wife. Fortunately, Michigan has become home to the Park family.
