Kenneth K Park, MD

Lower Extremity Specialist
Foot & Ankle Surgery

Board Certified & Fellowship Trained

Dr. Park is the South Bay's most prominent foot and ankle surgeon. He is also chair of the Orthopaedic Department at Torrance Memorial Hospital. He is a highly skilled, warm, and well-regarded physician 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 as an orthopedic surgeon. The Southern California native is a veteran body boarder and was an NCAA Division I UCLA tennis player who brings an athlete's commitment to his patients' treatment and recovery. This understanding of competitive sports 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. 

His own performance as an orthopedic surgeon is also impressive. 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 newer treatments, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, as an alternative to surgical intervention. 

He joined Coastal Ortho Advanced Orthopedics because he liked how the surgeons are committed to giving the absolute best to their patients, and the staff is better than first-rate.

Competition is in my blood. I know how much is at stake in helping my patients get healthy and strong again.
