General and Abdominal Surgery Department

Doctors perform surgical treatment of stomach, intestines, liver, kidneys, biliary tracts diseases. The specialty of the department is the removal of malignant and benign tumors.

Bundang surgeons specialize in laparoscopic and endoscopic operations — interventions through small incisions or natural openings (anus, mouth). They are low-injury rate procedures that minimize postoperative complications, do not leave noticeable scars. Such an approach shortens the patient's recovery period.

  • The 1st operation in the world of expanding (involving the neighboring tissues) removal of the gallbladder.
  • The 1st pancreas and part of the duodenum resection to treat pancreatic cancer in South Korea.
  • 5,000 surgeries for stomach cancer treatment. 90% of the interventions are performed laparoscopically, without big abdominal incisions.
  • 1,000 procedures to remove the gallbladder are carried out laparoscopically — through a puncture up to 1 cm.
  • 4,500 surgical interventions to treat intestinal cancer. According to the hospital's statistics, 76% such operations are successful.
  • 650 successful operations to remove the stomach.

Medical Oncology and Hematology Department

Patients with malignant tumors, the blood and lymphatic system diseases are treated here. Doctors of the Medical Oncology Department conduct chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and BMT (bone marrow transplant).

Radiation Oncology

The radiation oncology unit is equipped with the linear accelerators of the latest generation. They allow performing 3D conformal radiation therapy, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). All these techniques are aimed at irradiating a tumor as accurately as possible without damaging healthy tissues around the neoplasm. This allows minimizing such side effects as nausea, fatigue, hair loss, itching, and skin rashes.

GammaKnife Center

GammaKnife is a type of radiosurgery that affects malignant cells with high-intensity cobalt irradiation. Doctors use the GammaKnife to treat head and neck tumors due to its minimal affection for healthy brain cells.

Bundang Hospital doctors have performed over 1,000 procedures using the Gamma Knife.

In 2013, the Cardiovascular Center received regional status from the Korean Ministry of Health. This confirms the high success rate of operations in the hospital, the use of the latest treatment methods, and the doctors’ qualifications.
