|Wooridul Hospital has focused on spine treatment fro the last 31years after it was first established in Busan in 1982. We have grown as a hospital that captures the world’s attention and meets expectations. Wooridul Hospital currently manages 9 hospitals which are located in Seoul(3), Busan(2), Daegu(1), Gwangju(2) and Jeonju(1) in Korea. Shanghai Wooridul Hospital got on board in 2009, Wooridul Spine Center in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2010, Wooridul Spine Centre in Dubai, U.A.E and Wooridul Turkey Spine Center in Istanbul, Turkey were both added in 2011. Based on our “Patient First” philosophy, Wooridul Hospital has investigated and developed an advanced spinal surgical technique, the Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery(MISS), that preserves as much of the normal disc tissues as possible and meets patients’ expectations for minimal scarring and fast recovery with redueced complications. These results were achieved by the integrated cooperation of a multi disciplinary team including: neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, internal medicine physicians, rehabilitation physicians, and thoracic and general surgeons. This integrated team, in addition to over 1,200 employees of Wooridul Hospital, has contributed to the health and welfare of the patients around the world. As a world leading
spine hospital, Wooridul Hospital will continue to do its best to give patients hope and a better quality of life.
