Major procedures & Services
General Surgery; at the Forefront of Minimally Invasive Surgeries
The Department of General Surgery is the center of cancer operations and laparoscopic surgeries, with 15 professors. Both practice and research are actively pursued through the specialized clinics in the areas of stomach, hepatobiliary, colorectal and breast. SNUBH is known for its world-class laparoscopic surgeries, which minimizes complications, scarring and recovery time enabling patients to return to their daily lives within a shorter period.
All of these complex abdominal surgeries were traditionally considered not feasible with this minimally invasive technology in the hands of most surgeons. With cautiously and systemically planned approach, the surgeons of SNUBH accumulated large experience in these unusually complex and technically demanding surgical procedures.

“OLD TRADITION, NEW PARADIGM!”
Seoul National University Bundang Hospital (SNUBH) opened in 2003 as the first major expansion of Seoul National University Medical School system. With the history over 130 years at the center of Korean health care, the school needed addition of this new modern physical facility to accommodate ever-growing national and international requirement in the area of health care.
As the first fully digitalized-paperless health care institution in Korea, we succeeded the legacy and the tradition of prestige and obligation of the Seoul National University Medical School. Since its opening, SNUBH has rapidly established herself as the national and international leader by providing top class medical care in virtually every area of medicine and has been the site of breakthrough research and education.
The Unique Electronic Information System (BESTcare, Bundang hospital Electronic System for Total care) awarded Stage 7 by HIMSS Analytics recently, the highest in the category and the only one outside U.S.A. Implication of modern electronic medical record system and full digitalization of hospital medical care is improved medical care for the patients. It was scientifically proven that digitalization and modernized electronic medical record system improves medical care and clinical outcome of the patients by eliminating medical errors, improving safety and efficiency.
Recent addition of the new bed tower (Cancer and Neuroscience center in 2013) and the 79,800 m2 Healthcare Innovation Park (Center for biotech research and industries) solidified her leadership in health care of citizens of the world.
