Baldwin Bone & Joint Announces New Physician Affiliation with Fellowship-Trained Orthopaedic Surgeon, Dr. William I. Park, IV, FAAOS

William I. Park, IV, MDLong-term Mobile, Al-based Orthopaedic Specialist Moves Practice to Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C.

DAPHNE, AL (June 26, 2020) – The physicians and staff of Baldwin Bone & Joint are pleased to announce the association of fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. William I. Park, IV, FAAOS.

Park brings to new and current patients of Baldwin Bone & Joint more than 20 years of experience and fellowship-training in treating complex, lower extremity issues whether congenital, degenerative or traumatic. With a wide range of experience and skills, Park additionally treats everything from bunions and hammertoes to tendon reconstructions, ankle and foot arthritis and trauma to arthroscopic knee surgeries and knee replacements.

“The most important lesson I have learned is that orthopaedic issues must be managed within the context of each patient as an individual,” says Park. “That is why I will spend the necessary time with each and every patient determining the correct diagnosis and maximizing conservative treatment while being fully proficient in state-of-the-art arthroscopic, minimally invasive, and complex reconstructive techniques that may be required to speed along that patient’s recovery, optimize their function and return them to a healthy, active lifestyle.”

Park completed both his medical residency and fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery at the University of Tennessee’s renowned Campbell Clinic in Memphis, TN. He is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Through his more than two decades of orthopaedic practice, he has become adept at treating patients of all ages, and activity levels from children to weekend warriors to competitive athletes.

After spending his formative years in Mobile, Al, Park received his undergraduate degree in zoology from Duke University to maximize his exposure to anatomy and biomechanics which transitioned into his passion for orthopaedics. He then completed medical school at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 1997. His fellowship-training in foot and ankle surgery took place at the Campbell Clinic, Memphis, TN.

Park comes to the Baldwin Bone & Joint team of fellowship-trained othopaedic specialists following over 20 years of practice based in Mobile, AL. Park will continue to see patients from Mobile and Baldwin Counties as well as surrounding communities, at Baldwin Bone & Joint’s Daphne, Al office.  

Appointments with Park may be scheduled by calling 251.625.2663 or visiting baldwinboneandjoint.com.

Daphne-Based Baldwin Bone & Joint Offers Tips For What To Do if Your Orthopaedic Surgery is Postponed

surgical masksDAPHNE, AL (April 10, 2020) – The continued spread of COVID-19 has called on everyone—and especially the healthcare system—to quickly adapt. Many hospitals have postponed elective surgeries to be rescheduled later as they deal with the current crisis. Elective surgeries are surgeries that are not life-threatening and can be scheduled in advance. The patient chooses to have the surgery to better his or her quality of life. Many orthopaedic surgeries fall under this category even though the underlying conditions can be very serious and the discomfort to the patient can be significant.

What can a patient do when his or her surgery is postponed due to COVID-19 safety measures? Though many orthopaedic conditions are not life-threatening, they can be painful and restrict your movement. Here’s some helpful advice on how patients can alleviate their pain while they wait for surgery.

SPORTS INJURIES

  • For certain sports injuries, you’ll want to participate in a physical therapy program to maintain strength and range of motion as you await your surgery.
  • For knee injuries, you may need to minimize movements that use your knee, such as jumping and running—and also consider using additional knee support in some cases.
