Biography

About Woosup Michael Park, MD

W. Michael Park, MD, is a staff surgeon in the Department of Vascular Surgery in The Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute, practicing at Richard E Jacobs Health Center in Avon and the West Valley Medical Building in Fairview Park.  He is committed to building Cleveland Clinic’s vascular surgery practice in the western suburbs and bolstering the already strong tertiary care expertise at Avon and Fairview Hospitals.

Specialty Interests: Median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS), nutcracker syndrome, pelvic congestion syndrome, and May-Thurner syndrome.  

As Chief of Vascular Surgery in the Heart and Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Dr. Park built a regional vascular center of excellence consistent with Cleveland Clinic main campus standards and quality and innovated to advance the practice and knowledge of vascular surgery there.

Dr. Park is board-certified in general surgery and vascular surgery and is a Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) and Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI).

Success Rates: To learn about patient outcomes for specific conditions and procedures at Cleveland Clinic, go to: http://my.clevelandclinic.org/heart/about-heart-vascular-institute/treatment-outcomes.aspx.

Education: Dr. Park is a graduate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY. He completed his internship and a general surgery residency at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, New York City, followed by a fellowship in vascular surgery at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.

Dr. Park was appointed to the Cleveland Clinic staff in 2012. From 2017- 2021, he was Chief of Vascular Surgery in the Heart and Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and returned to Cleveland in 2021.

Research, Publications and Speaking: A dedicated clinical researcher, Dr. Park has participated in nearly a dozen clinical trials related to treatment of vascular disease, including the latest endovascular treatments. He has published more than dozen articles, abstracts and reviews in leading vascular surgery journals and has authored an online blog on Medscape for healthcare providers. He serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Vascular Surgery for venous and lymphatic disease.

About Dr. Park: “I am interested in solving problems in collaboration with the patient. My undergraduate education in biomedical engineering lets me apply those concepts to vascular diseases. My fellowship at Mayo Clinic during the golden age of open surgery coupled with two decades of experience with cutting-edge minimally invasive and endovascular techniques, including more than a decade at Cleveland Clinic, gives me a complete tool kit to diagnose and treat complex vascular disease. Travel, including my recent tenure at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, has deepened my understanding of disease as a human experience as much as a derangement of biochemical and physical processes.” 
 
Leisure Activities: In his leisure time, Dr. Park enjoys golfing, fishing, cooking and writing.

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 3/13/2017, Dr. Park has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.
