Features of the Clinic

Gachon University Gil Medical Center

The first successful organ forming operation was carried out at korean Gil Hospital in 1988. In 2003- the first operation on implantation of an artificial disk in the vertebral department was carried out. In 2008, 25 successful liver transplantations were performed in a row.

The Gachon University Gil Medical Center is developing by the "smart hospital" strategy. Back in 1991, the Directorate created the Continuous Patient Information Support System (CALS), the Archiving and Imaging System (PACS) with telemedicine, so that all patients receive consultation with the doctor as quickly as possible.

In order to get an appointment with a doctor, the patient independently enters the date and time of the visit into the system, can ask questions about treatment even after discharge from the hospital and receive recommendations for correcting the treatment.

It develops methods of alternative medicine, achieves success in the treatment of climacteric diseases in women, patients with panic disorders and correction of other chronic diseases.

In the Gil Medical Center, various components of animal and plant origin are used, which have undergone careful monitoring, the harmlessness of which has been confirmed in the US and Europe. Also, a group of medical volunteers has been formed here since 1992, which provides medical assistance under the program "Search for a new life" under various natural and man-made disasters.
