Features of Severance in South Korea

  1. Great surgical experience. Every year, specialists perform thousands of different types of surgical interventions: surgical therapies of stomach carcinomas, prostate cancer removal, spine restoration, and so on.
  2. Severance actively uses modern technological developments in medical field. Latest equipment, particularly, modernized CT, MRI and PET-CT units, enable physicians performing accurate and fast diagnostics. Tomotherapy devices are used to eliminate cancerous tumors, irradiating only malignant cells without damaging healthy ones. Many operations are made with Da Vinci robot – a mechanized “surgeon” performing interventions with minimal incisions of 1-3 centimeters.
  3. Severance Hospital made the first heart surgery in Korea with robotized technology. Also, for the first time in Asia, specialists performed the replacement of the vertebral disc with an artificial analogue.

Narrow specialization

  • Oncological diseases.

The hospital collaborates with oncologists from the American Hopkins Institute. Thanks to such cooperation, the specialists of the clinic adopted and received practical knowledge from foreign colleagues.

The hospital’s specialists deal mainly with breast, stomach, prostate and thyroid cancers. Specialists use a modernized device for intraoperative radio irradiation IORT. The radiation source is brought as close as possible to cancer cells, which allows them to be effectively destroyed without affecting healthy tissues. This tool almost halves the time of surgical interventions and significantly reduces blood loss during surgery. Most operations are robotic; they are performed with a Da Vinci robot.

  • Spine surgical therapy.

Every year, doctors perform about one and a half thousand operations on the spine. In South Korea, Severance is the leading institution for the treatment of pinched nerves and tumors of the intervertebral discs.

  • Cardiac surgery.

Doctors specialize in therapy of acquired and congenital heart defects, coronary ailments treatment and robotized surgical interventions on heart. Severance performs heart valve replacement and repair surgeries, coronary artery bypass grafting and removal of blood clots.
