  • Major procedures & Services

    We conduct staged and comprehensive treatment, Minimally Invasive Surgery which preserves normal tissue as much as possible.

    Wooridul Hospital conduct appropriate treatment for patients through 5 staged accurate diagnostic tests. we first try conservative treatment including observation, medication, physiotherapy and exercise therapy, and then try non-surgical treatment such as spinal injection, neuroplasty and/or neurolysis. If there is no improvement despite all the nonsurgical interventions, we conduct spine surgery(procedure) for the patients. We have been maintaining our prinple of ‘phased and comprehensive spinal treatment’



    Stage1. Conservative Treatment & Spinal Injection

    -Physiotherapy: Manual Therapy, Infrared Ray Therapy, Interferential Current Therpy, Cryo therapy, Sling, Cycle,
    Ultrasound Therapy, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy,
    Centaur, Traction.

    -Medication, Block injection, CT guided Ultrasound-guided Injection



    Stage3. Percutaneous Endoscopic Spinal Procedure

    The size of surgical wound is as small as about 0.6cm, and very thin endoscopic is inserted under local anesthesia. It is very rare to develop spinal instability since this procedure only removes the herniated discs and preserved normal tissues as much as possible. Also there is less concern regarding development of nerve adhesion as the procedure does not touch ligaments or nerves. The procedure time is short as 30 minutes and it is possible to discharge on the same day.

    Stage5. Motion Preservation Spinal Stabilization

    ts usage could prevent the occurrence of several degenerative disease that could progress into spone instability by not allowing any further sliding of the vertebrae. This type of surgery enables patients to have freedom of spinal motion because it maintains mobility of joints, and it is possible for patients to return to everyday life. It also reduces the chance of reoperation for the adjacent level by minimizing the degenerative changes.

    Stage7. Minimally Invasive Deformity Anteroposterior Surgery

    The main types of spinal deformity include scoliosis and kyphosis. Our experienced spine expert team straightens a curved spine with only minimal incisions. This surgery improves not only back pain but also gait disturbances and breathing functions, and height can be increased by correcting posture.
