Los Angeles Foot and Ankle Specialist
With his experience, Dr. Joseph Park successfully treats a wide range of foot and ankle problems. Dr. Park provides his patients with effective care and explores all possible treatment options, whether surgical or non-surgical.
An ankle arthroscopy is a much less invasive procedure than other procedures and allows the ligament to be stabilized with tissue anchors. This eliminates an extended period of immobilization, joint stiffness and muscle atrophy. Post-operatively, this primary ligament repair is protected for approximately a two-to three-week period of time in either a cast or removable cast boot.
Bunion surgery generally involves an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. This is done to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint. If the joint is severely deformed, it may be stabilized with tiny wires, stitches, screws, or plates. There are no guarantees that a bunion surgery will fully relieve your pain.
Hammer toe can be corrected by surgery if conservative measures fail. Usually, surgery is done on an outpatient basis with a local anesthetic. The actual procedure will depend on the type and extent of the deformity. Hammer toe most frequently results from wearing poorly fitting shoes that can force the toe into a bent position, such as excessively high heels or shoes that are too short or narrow for the foot.

For the first time in my life I’m speechless because I cannot find the words to describe Dr Park, he is the most well-mannered most compassionate caring doctor I have ever dealt with. He took my pain, misery and embarrassment of my feet due to overgrown bunions and turned them into something I never believed would be. I cannot thank you enough Dr Park for giving me back basically a different kind of life, I no longer have to hide them from the world .God bless you and the miracles you do. Thank you, thank you and again thank you. – Peggy M.
My hubby went for a toe nail issue and Dr Park was fantastic. He is kind, takes his time, genuinely cares, and offered great treatments. Didn’t just want to go strict medication route like many would.
Dr. Park is my favorite doctor that I have ever had. He is the most knowledgeable, kind, effective, efficient, and friendly doctor I’ve ever encountered. I’ve seen him several times over the last 7 years – for both accidental breaks and chronic foot problems – and he has always given the most effective diagnosis, explained all options available, and provided the best advice and treatment to get me healed.
Dr. Park himself is a great guy, always very personable and helpful. I went there for running-related pain in my right foot (plantar issues), and he was able to identify and cure me of the pain super effectively. I continued to see him due to issues in my left leg, and he was once again able to target the issue and relieve most of the pain (I continue to do stretches based on his advice for the remainder of the pain).
Dr. Park is the real deal. Every person I know who has had him as a Doctor, always has good things to say. Highly recommend!
Dr Park is the nicest, most informed patient kind educated and attentive doctor I have met since moving to the US 14 year ago!!!! I wish he was my everything doctor. His staff is incredible too. You don’t feel like an invoice, you feel like a human they truly care about.
