Features of the Clinic


surgical oncology treatment in Soon Chun Hyang University HospitalIn 2011, the updated Soon Chun Hyang Oncology Center was opened. The center closely cooperates with the Pulmonary Genetic Center and the Center for Molecular Biology, the departments jointly participate in the development of new cancer therapies. In the reviews of the Soon Chun Hyang Clinic, many patients focused on advanced treatment methods used in the hospital. It is the continuous improvement of technology that made Soon Chun Hyang Hospital one of the leading medical institutions in Korea. Thanks to this approach, stem cells treatment began in adults for the treatment of oncological diseases here. On the basis of the department there are conducted tests of simultaneous use of radiation and chemotherapy.

Hospital is equipped with advanced medical equipment for the treatment of cancer:

CyberKnife G4 (the latest generation): The latest technology of radiosurgical treatment of cancer. The system has a built-in function for tracking the tumor in real time, taking into account the vastness of the lesion area and fluctuations caused by respiration. CyberKnife technology in Soon Chun Hyang provides accurate, bloodless and painless surgery to remove tumors in hard-to-reach areas. The accuracy of the 4th generation Cyber ​​Knife is up to 0.4 mm, which virtually excludes the effect of radiation on healthy cells.

Novalis Tx: The latest radiosurgical system for bloodless operations. Used to treat neurological and cerebrovascular pathologies, including cancer of the spinal cord and brain.

Elekta Infiniti: The most modern type of linear accelerator. High-precision and high-speed system with built-in rotational radiation function (VMAT). Thanks to VMAT, the duration of exposure is 2 times shorter than with other linear accelerators. With the help of Elekta Infiniti, it is possible to treat large number of affected areas with high dose of radiation, while maintaining gentle conditions for healthy tissue. The error of the device is less than 1 mm, because the effect on intact cells is minimal.

Tomotherapy: Innovative installation for layer-by-layer irradiation and ionization of tumors. One-of-a-kind system for the simultaneous treatment of multiple foci. This device allows to adjust the degree of exposure depending on the level of sensitivity and resistance of tumors.


This department performs plastic surgery operations to treat post-traumatic scars, congenital defects, dysplasia, tumors as well as mammoplasty, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and other types of surgical interventions.

Soon Chun Hyang Medical Center is the first clinic in Korea, where CT-navigator was used for maxillofacial surgeries. The tool is effective in correcting a twisted or protruding chin, asymmetry of the face, square jaw and other interventions to eliminate damage to the bones of the face and chin. For the entire time of use of the CT scanner in the field of plastic surgery, there has not been a single case of manifestation of such postoperative complications, such as asymmetry of the face or numbness due to damage to the facial nerve.

At Soon Chun Hyang Hospital, an MRI scanner with multislice sensors is used. This reduces the time of the CT scan procedure. The device is able to take 43 pictures in just 0.37 seconds.


In 2005, the local unique system of diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular diseases was recognized as the most effective by the Health Ministry of South Korea. In 2013, the Soon chun hyang Heart Center was named the best place for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction by the Korea Health Insurance Agency.

For the treatment of varicose veins in the hospital, the CHIVA technique is successfully used, which does not require the removal of damaged areas of the blood vessels, as is the case with traditional surgery. When treating with this method, the vessels are preserved and the blood flow is normalized.

Due to the fact that the operation is performed under local anesthesia and all manipulations are performed through minimal incisions, the patient can return to full-fledged life almost immediately after its completion. During this treatment, the risk of complications and negative postoperative effects is minimized.


Center for the treatment of joints diseases is headed by a professor, orthopedist of the highest category - Im Sue Je. He successfully performed over 6,000 surgeries. In 2006, the professor was awarded the title Great Mind of the 21st century by the American Biographical Institute (ABI).

In 2007, the Soon Chun Hyang Endoprosthetics Center was recognized as the best in the country. Since 2009 - the leader of Korea in the number of successfully performed joint replacement operations. In 2011, the Center became the best in Korea in replacement of knee and hip joints.

Specialists of the clinic perform endoprosthetics of the hip, knee, shoulder and elbow joints using advanced surgical techniques. This center actively interacts with the rehabilitation department and the pain management department.


The center opened on July 12, 1985. The Department of Gynecology and the Department of Pediatrics are functioning here.

The Center has: surgical units, delivery rooms, wards for newborns, hospital, intensive care units, a special room for feeding the baby.

For the safety of newborns, a Hepa filter is installed in the intensive care units. It completely cleans the air from pollution and protects children from infections.

The Center also has an isolated ward with enhanced infection control for children with tuberculosis infection, measles and chickenpox. The room is equipped with special onboard protection that prevents air from escaping. Thus, the health of other children is in complete safety. For additional protection of newborns, an automatic alarm system in the event of a short circuit works here.


Cerebrovascular Department specializes in the neurosurgical treatment of cerebral vessels. All doctors who carry out such operations in Soon Chun Hyang have been certified by the Korean Society of Endovascular Microsurgery of the cerebral vessels. 99% of cerebral aneurysms are detected here using non-invasive diagnostic methods, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Fast and accurate diagnosis help specialists to begin treatment of the patient as soon as possible.
