Clinic Review

treatment of cancer in South Korea

The KUIMS Medical Center is a multispecialty medical institution, the first clinic of which was founded more than 45 years ago in Seoul, South Korea.

The KUIMS clinic is designed for 800 beds and accepts for treatment 15 000 foreign patients per year. The clinic is equipped with modern technology, and the operating rooms meet the highest world standards.

30 specialized centers offer a wide range of procedures. Among the departments of the clinic there are departments of cardiology, bariatric surgery, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynecology, neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, oncology and rheumatology.

In KUIMS, all medical technologies are concentrated in one place, which greatly facilitates the patient's treatment process.

The KUIMS structure includes the Kyung Hee Medical Center, Kyung Hee University Hospital in Gangdong (dental clinic, orthopedic clinic, oriental medicine center, spine center, stroke center) and research centers.

CLINIC KYUNG-HEE MEDICAL CENTER KUIMS

Center Kyung-hee was founded in 1971. Today, many latest medical technologies are available in this center, such as robotic surgical techniques. The staff of the center employs 2,500 employees, including 266 highly qualified doctors. Annually, 1.5 million patients are treated here, of which 15,000 are foreign citizens. The KUIMS is the first university clinic that has a unique treatment system combining dental, western, eastern and eastern-western medicine.

PECULIARITIES OF KUIMS MEDICAL CENTER

The main feature of the KUIMS medical center is its convenience for foreign patients. Every year more than half a million people are treated here, including about 15 000 patients from abroad.
