John M. Park, M.D.
Assistant Professor of Urology
Dr. John Park graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1990 and completed his urology residency training at the University of Michigan Medical Center in 1995. He was named an American Foundation for Urological Disease MD-Research Scholar and studied the molecular aspects of urinary tract development. During this time, he was also a Lecturer in the Department of Surgery and the Urological Consultant to the Trauma and Spinal Cord Injury Services at the University of Michigan.
In 1997, Dr. Park went to the Harvard Children's Hospital in Boston to do his fellowship training in pediatric urology. There, he worked closely with several outstanding pediatric urologists, notably Dr. W. Hardy Hendren and Dr. Alan B. Retik. In addition to learning the surgical skills necessary to correct common pediatric urological problems such as hypospadias, vesicoureteral reflux, undescended testes, and antenatal hydronephrosis, Dr. Park developed a special interest and expertise in the treatment of complex genitourinary problems including continent urinary diversion, exstrophy/epispadias, complex hypospadias, pediatric tumors and intersex conditions.
In 1999, Dr. Park returned to the University of Michigan as an Assistant Professor. His primary clinical interest remains the surgical correction of common and complex pediatric urological problems as well as minimally invasive surgery techniques such as laparoscopic orchidopexy and nephrectomy. His laboratory is currently investigating the mechanism of bladder and renal obstruction pathophysiology.
