+ Orthopedic Clinic








Wooridul Hospital Computer Assisted Orthopedic Clinic has the most advanced equipment and newest medical technology that are applied to various surgical regions including knee, hip, shoulder and ankle

Computer assisted navigation surgery

Computer assisted navigation surgery has the success rate as high as 99%. It directly monitors the image around the joint, maximizing the accuracy of the surgery. The navigation in the surgery plays the similar role of the car navigation system.
General artificial joint surgery
  • Difficult to know the alignment state or angle
  • Success rate of the surgery is determined by the surgeon’s experience
Computer assisted navigation
artificial joint surgery

+ Shoulder Tendon Tear

Shoulder tendon (rotator cuff) Tear

What is the rotator cuff?

The rotator cuff is a series of four tendons that attach to the humerus or shoulder or proximal bone in the arm in order to permit the arm to move through the shoulder joint with a full range of motion and normal power.

Causes of Shoulder tendon (rotator cuff) tear

  • Falling on to the shoulder from skiiing or sport activites Heavy lifting
  • Often found in people with occupations requiring overhead activity
  • Degenerative (Slowly torn after middle age)

  • Weakness
  • Popping or grinding
  • Pain at night often being more prominent

How is this disease treated?

  • Surgical treatment is required to fix the torn tendon to the original position regardless of the size.
  • Prevent the humeral head from poking up through the rotator cuff tear and rubbing against the bony acromion.

■ Double bridge-myorrhaphy

  • Low possibility of re-torn due to the securely fixed tendon
  • Fast recovery due to the maximized contact area
Close this tab

+ Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

What is Shoulder Impingement Syndrome?
  • Narrowed gap between the acromion and the upper arm bone

■ Hip
+ Orthopedic Hip Clinic

Hip joint, the largest joint in our body, consists of the top of femur and

+ Avascular necrosis of the femoral head

It is destruction of the hip joint causedby the blockage of blood supply to the femoral head and the insufficient provision of oxygen and nutrients. It is frequently found among the active young and middle-aged adults at the age between 30~59.

  • Overuse of steroid
  • Aftereffects of hip joint fracture and dislocation by trauma
  • Excessive drinking

Treatments of Avascular necrosis of the femoral head

We provide drug treatment or non-surgical treatment in the initial stage.
However, the prognosis of the non-surgical treatment has been reported to
b not good for the case with a severe lesion.
At our hospital, we perform selective and customized surgery, considering
the severity of the necrosis and the patient’s age.

Damaged hip joint is removed and an artificial joint made of special metal and ceramic

■ Depressurization of the core, multiple drilling
For the avascular necrosis in theinitial stage. Prevents the progress of the disease or promotes the regeneration of the blood stream in the necrosis region.

Method:
  • A minimum incision (about 0.5cm) to make a hole between the femoral intertrochanteric region and the femoral head.
  • Eliminate necrosis by accurately checking the lesion using an arthroscope.
  • Joint drilling and autogenous bone graft along the necrosis region.
Characteristics:
  • Surgery takes about 10-20 minutes.
  • Patient’s bone is maintained as much as possible.
  • The wound is rapidly recovered and the duration of hospitalization is short.
■ Arthroscopic hip joint operation
The diagnosis and surgical treatment are performed stimultanously by monitoring the ligaments and cartilages inside the joint, the deformation of the synovial membrane surrounding the joint or the damage on the cartilage.

Method:
  • A thin and long arthroscope (diameter: 4.5mm) is inserted to the hip joint.
  • A micro-sized camera andother laser surgical instruments are installed for the diagnosis and treatment.
Subjects :
Impurities in the joint, Damage of the joint cartilage, Rupture of the ligament in the joint, Degenerative arthritis lesion in the articular labrum, Collision of the generative flexion, Avascular necrosis, Intra-articular imflammation

+ Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Surgery

When the cruciate ligament is ruptured, the thigh bone and the calf bone are not fixed and move independently. The cartilage disk that cushions the impact between the two bones is damaged and causes arthritis. The purpose of this surgery is to recover the cruciate ligament to the slate before the damage by more than 90% and prevent the progress of the arthritis. Wooridul Hospital performs the two string-cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery that requires a high-level technique.

  • Fast recovery
  • Prevent the extension of the ligament
  • Ligament is not worn out
  • High success rate of the surgery
One string-Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction surgery Two string-Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction sugery
The ligament is vulnerable to the rational force The ligament is less vulnerable to the rotational force or shaking
Reconstruct a part of the normal ligament only Similar to the normal ligament
Can enjoy sport after the surgery Can enjoy more acctive sport after the surgery
Can be performed for everyone Hardly applicable to the patients who have small bones
Easy re-surgery when the ligament is ruptured again Difficult re-surgery when the ligament is ruptured again

  • Swollen ligament and mild pain
  • Pop sound in knees
  • Feel as if the legs are dropped off when changing the direction
  • Feel weak and dislocated in the legs during sports activities
  • Ruptured cartilage plate due to the unstable legs

  • Reconstruct the position of the ruptured ligament. If the patient’s own ligament is not available, the ligament of the same kind is used.
  • Perform knee joint bending after the swelling disappears. Depending on the conditions, perform reconstruction surgery using an arthroscope.


I feel much better after the surgery!

Manage your knees after the surgery!
  • Put ice and water half and half to a plastic bag and wrap it with a thin towel. Apply the ice pack to the operated area. Perform it 3-4 times a day for 15 minutes.
