Dr. Park has focused his research on enhancing the methods for treating fractures, particularly the effects of weight bearing, electrical muscle stimulation, and lavage of an open fracture, and the effect of pneumatic compression on blood flow to the fracture and healing.
Contract research from various orthopaedic implant manufacturers.
Support from the Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation.
