Dr. Sungkook Andrew Park is a board-certified anesthesiologist and fellowship-trained pain management specialist.
He went to University of California, Berkeley, to complete his undergraduate degree in bioengineering. He was given the Regents’ Scholarship Award as top incoming freshman and graduated with high honors for his academic accomplishment. During undergraduate studies, he took interest in stem cell engineering and stayed on as research staff at University of California, San Francisco, for one year upon completing his degree.
Dr. Park then went on to Washington University in St. Louis for medical school, one of the top medical schools in the nation. He then went to University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), for residency training in anesthesiology, critical care, and pain medicine. During his residency, he developed special interest in helping patients with chronic pain and decided to stay at UCLA for further fellowship training in pain management.
Dr. Park’s interest is in helping people with pain through a holistic and multimodal approach. He not only looks at the patient’s illness but evaluates the patient’s overall medical condition and tailors appropriate treatment accordingly. He has helped numerous people cut down or be completely free from opioids using alternative approaches to pain management.
Dr. Park also takes pride in offering the most cutting-edge and minimally invasive interventional treatments for those who suffer from pain. He has helped many people who have pain despite numerous prior treatments or who are not surgical candidates. He is well versed in treatments using fluoroscopic- and ultrasound-guided injections as well as more advanced therapies, such as spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal pump implant, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, interspinous spacer, and many more.
