Dr. Park was one of the first Urologists and surgeons in the Kansas City area to use the daVanci robot, and he is one of only a few surgeons to use the Single Port (SP) robot that performs complex surgery through a single incision. Dr. Park routinely uses the daVinci robot for cancer surgeries of the prostate, kidney, ureter, adrenal gland, and bladder (Prostatectomy, Partial Nephrectomy, Radical Nephrectomy, Nephroureterectomy, Adrenalectomy, and Radical Cystectomy). He also does robotic reconstructive surgeries such as pyeloplasties for ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) and ureteral reimplants for ureter strictures. He has performed over 1000 cases with the daVinci robot, and he has done the most robotic kidney cancer surgeries in Kansas City. Dr Park also practices all aspects of urology including kidney stone disease, incontinence, and prostate problems (BPH). He is trained to perform the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as laser enucleation surgery of the prostate, and outpatient procedures for incontinence such as slings and Botox.
