Says Vincent Marsland of Malaysia, "A minimally invasive surgery called percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy was only available in certain countries, the nearest for me being Korea, but I was informed of the hospital in this country, Wooridul Spine Hospital, was probably the best for my condition. Four days after my arrival in Korea, I left Seoul and flew back to Malaysia. I returned to work, thanks to Wooridul Hospital and staff, much to the shock of my work colleagues who could not believe that I had left in a wheelchair less than a week ago."
