The Chairman of Wooridul Spine Hospital, Dr. Sang Ho Lee, was on SBS CNBC Doctor Q: ‘Build a Healthy Spine’


On Saturday, June 9, the chairman of Wooridul Spine Hospital, 
Dr. Sang Ho Lee, has appeared on the <Doctor Q, talk about my body> of SBS CNBC in Korea.


<Doctor Q, Talk about my body> is the program 
which introduces best doctors in the medical field. 

The doctors themselves share health information 

and communicate with viewers through counseling. 

Dr. Lee explains spinal diseases and cases to viewers more easily.

There are five symptoms of disk-related backache:
Hard to sit for long time
Do not want to lift heavy objects due to discomfort/pain
Unable to straighten your back right away when you stand up
Severe backache after strenuous exercise or hard work

Major symptoms of spinal stenosis:
Feel better to sit down. Stand up may cause pain in your back, buttock or leg.
Weakness, heaviness or dullness in your body when you walk
Body aches, electric sensation or heaviness in your leg may occur when you lying down flat.
Unable to walk about 100 meters and take a rest repeatedly

He explained the main symptoms of spinal stenosis 
as well as treatment called ligament reconstruction.

The spinal stenosis can be treated with ligament reconstruction which is one of the cause treatments.

The advantage of ligament reconstruction is 
it does not require blood transfusion, 
bone transplant or screw/artificial bone insertion. 

The patient can walk right away on the operation day.

Ligament Reconstruction

Ø  Method: Under general anesthesia, make around 5cm incision, through the endoscopic view, decompress the nerve with advanced equipment like laser, and tie up between instable spinous process with special ligament made of polyethylene.
Ø  Operation time: 2 hours (The operation time can be changed upon the surgical range.)
Ø  Anesthesia: General

There are a number of phone calls for telephone counseling during this talk show.
Dr. Lee tried to help people 
with spinal disease as possible as he can.

[Interview] Germany / Renate

I am Renate Jameson, I live in Manila, Philipines.

For the last year, I have had terrible back problems, pain and I was diagnosed cervical problems.

I started to search on the internet and I found Wooridul Hospital in Seoul.  So I wrote to them inquiring whether I would be a suitable candidate for minimally invasive surgery. They wrote back that unfortunately I was not suitable candidate for that procedure but they will do a traditional ACDF procedure which I accepted.

The operation has been a success and I like to thank Dr. Han Joong Keum. My pains were greatly alleviated and I will return to Manila much happier person.

I experience here in Wooridul Hospital has been a very positive one. The staff are efficient and friendly and I think this hospital gives confidence so I would not hesitate to recommend to anybody who has back problems.

[Interview] Indonesia / Hardian

حياتي مع مسكنات الآلم لفترة الماضي الأخيرة 36 عاما(My Life with Painkiller for the last 36 years)

 حياتي مع مسكنات الآلم لفترة الماضي الأخيرة 36 عاما

الجنسية : فرنسا

العمر/الجنس : 57سنة/ رجل

تاريخ الجراحة : 2016.04
الآلم في أسفل ظهر وألم التشنج في الارداف خاصة عندما انحني ظهري للأمام  وكنت اعتمد على مسكنات الآلم منذ 36 سنة الاخيرة

DDD(Degeneration disc disease)

العلاجات :

السلام عليكم اسمي فرانسوا من فرنسا.
أصيبت بإصابة في ظهري في L4/5 عندما العب التزلج.
بدأت الآلم المستمرة منذ 36 عاما الماضي ولم أستطيع أن أديرظهري للجانبين وأنحني ظهري للأمام لاتقاط الأشياء من الارض لان شديد الآلم في الظهر,الحوض,الساقين والذراعين
رأيت كثير من الأطباء الفرنسيين ولم أحصل التشخيص بي من الأطباء
ولكن دكتور لي سانغ هو اكتشف مشكلتي بناء على التصوير بالرنين المغناطيسي
وكان ينصح بإجراء العلاج بحد أدنى من الاجتياح تحت التخدير الموضعي
قررت أن آتي إلى كوريا الجنوبية وأرى الدكتور لي
رأيت جميع أطباء في مستشفى ووريدول تجمعوا وتبادلوا رأيهم عن حالتي.
وداخل غرفة العملية استطعت أن اتكلم مع الجراح اذا شعرت بالآلم أو عدم الراحة أثناء العلاج.
لذلك كنت مرتاح جدا أثناء العملية وتمكنت من المشي بعد ساعة من العملية بشكل جيد.
 كان رائع أن ما عندي أي الآلم في ساقين بعد العملية
وجدت جميع الموظفين والكوادر الطبية في مستشفى ووريدول مستعدين لعناية المرضى ويهتمين بعلاج المرضى
انا راضي جدا بزيارة كوريا وبتلقاء علاجي في مستشفى ووريدول
