    How was your appointment with Dr. Park?

    Sep 23, 2022
    On September 2nd, I underwent a very difficult procedure by Dr. Don Y. Park at UCLA Santa Monica Orthopedic Hospital. I have dealt with long term, dibilitating neck pain which caused me to lose my balance and control of my arms and legs. Although the idea of replacing three bones in my neck felt extremely risky, I always trusted Dr. Park because of his outstanding reputation and his ability to communicate well and ease and concern I had before surgery. Today is three weeks since the surgery, I am happy to say everything went well and I have regained full functionality of my arms and legs! I owe a lot of gratitude to Dr Park, the incisions and pain have healed quickly.

    What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

    A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams. While not all specialties have board certifications, if your provider does have one they’ve taken the extra step to master their specialty and to keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
