About the department

The Department of Endoprosthetics at the Wooridul Hospital Seoul offers the full range of services in this medical field. It performs high-precision, minimally invasive surgeries to partially or totally replace knee, hip, shoulder and ankle joints. Also, computer-assisted navigation surgery is widely used in the clinical practice. Thanks to the excellent technical equipment and high competence of the department's surgeons, the optimal treatment results are provided here. The department is headed by Dr. med. Yong Gab Jeong.

Computerized navigation surgery is widely used in clinical practice, which allows the surgeons to increase the accuracy of the operation, achieve the highest rates of successful treatment, and reduce the frequency of disease recurrences. The work of the department's doctors is based on another important treatment method, namely minimally invasive surgery. Such interventions allow the doctor to reduce the size of a surgical incision by 50% or more, preserve soft tissues as much as possible, significantly reduce the recovery period, minimize the risk of complications, recurrences and pain. In addition, an important advantage of minimally invasive interventions is the cosmetic aspect, namely the absence of scars.
