Wooridul Hospital established in Busan in 1982, has been striving to be the world’s leading spine hospital with the state of the art equipment and technology. Based upon minimally invasive treatment principle, Wooridul Hospital has investigated and developed various spine treatments to act up to patient’s expectation for minimal scars and fast recovery.

As a result, Wooridul Hospital has performed nearly 80,000 spine procedures including both open and minimally invasive approaches and accomplished academic achievement by publication of 171 papers in SCI journals of worldwide authority by 2010.These results were achieved by the integrated cooperation of a multi disciplinary team including:

  • thoracic and general surgeons.

This integrated team and over 1,200 employees of  Wooridul Hospital have contributed to the health  and welfare of  the patients and their families over 30 years together.

In addition, we would mostly like to attribute our success in retaining our position as the world’s   best hospital to the love and concern of patients from all over the world who trust and approve our   treatment philosophies and surgical techniques.

Monitoring with the real-time computer navigation, medicine is inserted only into lesion exactly. Wooridul Hospital was the first to succeed in this therapy in Korea.

X-MRI is the World's first system, which combines the interventional X-Ray and MRI that enables doctors to scan sectional views of the spine. With the aid of X-MRI, the proper surgical pathway can be decided through the MRI, and since the disc can be removed by endoscopic laser right after the decision, the success rate of minimally invasive treatment can be increased very high. Also the complication rate is very low since the result of the treatment can be checked before the completion of the treatment.

  • Rehabilitation

  • Internal Medicine
  • Conservative care
