Hello! I would like to present a short clinical case with a rare case of a giant aortic arch false aneurysm repair.
If it is possible I may send all details on your email address.
Thank you in advance,

Hey Michael. Henry van Niekerk here, surgeon in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Thank you for your patient reports on remote endarterectomy – they are extremely valuable to me. I am busy preparing a pitch for a major devices company on my little start-up’s patented device that I believe may be used to remotely endarterectomize trans-femorally right up to the aortic bifurcation. Would love to run it by you , but I don’t mean to impose. Let me know if you’re curious.
Hope you and your family have settled down well in Abu Dhabi – regards.


Hello Dr. Park,
Am a PT, Lymphedema therapist from Abu Dhabi and came to know about you from one of your patient. May I have your email contact please.


Dear Dr.Park,

My mother needs your expertise in her current situation, is it possible to get your opinion as I am unsure that the condition can wait until you are back on the 7th of Jan
Happy New Year


Hi Dr Parks. Im an Ophthalmologist who is operated for arteria lusoria. The operation is performed 3 months ago via right thoracotomy. No neurologic complications. I can swallow both solids and liquids. But I still have foreign body sensation in my esophagus. I wonder if this is because of the stump compression. My surgeon says there is enough space for esophagus. And no compression by subclavian artery anymore since it is translocated to ascending aorta. I need your expertise. 🙏🙏🙏 Is it possible for you to see my Ct scans ??


Please send to my office at W Michael Park, MD, Chief Vascular Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi 8C-271, Al Maryah Island, PO Bix 112412, Abu Dhabi, UAE
