Dr. Park joined the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery in September 2013.
He completed his Otolaryngology residency training at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine
in New York City. Through the American Head and Neck Society (AHNS), he spent a year
obtaining advanced fellowship training in Head and Neck Surgery and Microvascular
Reconstructive Surgery as well as Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) at the University of
Washington. Specializing in the treatment of complex Head and Neck Oncology as well as
Microvascular Reconstruction, Dr Park’s clinical interests are in the treatment of the nasal
cavity and throat cancers. He has expertise in treating a wide variety of benign and
malignant tumors of the head and neck, including those of the salivary glands, thyroid,
tongue, lips, throat and skin cancer. Dr. Park will further develop the Microvascular
Reconstruction program at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and help to create a
multidisciplinary program that will help to dramatically import the quality of life by
changing the way patients look, speak, and eat. In addition, Dr. Park has been a very active
researcher and has published numerous articles relating to outcome and treatment of
Transoral Robotic Surgery, Microvascular Reconstruciton, and Head and Neck Oncology. He is
fluent in both English and Korean.
