Please join me in welcoming Sam Park to our faculty at Women’s College Hospital. Sam is being appointed as a Surgeon-Investigator at the level of Assistant Professor.
Sam obtained his medical degree (M.D.) at the University of Ottawa, and completed his Orthopedic Surgery residency at the University of Toronto. During his surgical training, Sam was concurrently enrolled in the Surgeon Scientist Training Program and obtained a Master of Applied Science (MASc) degree through the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) at the University of Toronto. Following his surgical residency, Sam pursued advanced fellowship training in Adult Foot and Ankle Reconstruction with the renowned Vancouver orthopedic surgery foot and ankle specialist group at the University of British Columbia.
Sam’s specialized clinical focus is the management of adult foot and ankle conditions. These include the treatment of early to end-stage arthritis, deformity correction, cartilage lesions, tendon disorders, athletic injuries, fractures and trauma, and the foot and ankle sequelae from systemic conditions (such as diabetes, inflammatory arthritis) and neurological disorders. Much of Sam’s surgical practice integrates the use of minimally-invasive arthroscopic and innovative advanced percutaneous techniques to optimize patient outcomes. His academic interests are focused on:
- clinical epidemiology and outcomes research on the treatment of various foot and ankle disorders and pathology; and
- translational science research related to foot and ankle arthritis and joint preservation.
Welcome back to Toronto, Sam – we’re delighted to have you join our Faculty!
All the best,
