My Story

Hello, I am Denis. I am from Russia.
I fractured my both heels by accident and the situtation was not good.
Doctors in Russia said surgery will be not easy.
After thinking over with my famil, I decided to come to Korea for surgery.
The reasone why I chose Wooridul is that it specializes in joint and spine treaments. Also I know Wooridul has a lot of surgical experiences.

I had 3 times of surgeries which were done very well. I believe I can walk again soon.
All staffs including doctors are all expert. They are excellent and kind. They know exactly what the patient needs.

Wooridul Hospital is the best! Thank you for everything.

Now, I can walk!!

My Story
My back and leg pain were much improved after the procedures. Now I can play golf very well without pain.

Hello, I am Francois and I am from France.
I injured my back at L4/5 when I was skiing.
I started to feel back pain 36 year ago and cannot turn my back or bend down to pick up something because of pain on back, buttock, leg and arm.
I was seen by many French doctors, but any specific diagnosis was not made; however, Dr. Sang Ho Lee found my problem based on MRI and recommended minimally invasive spinal surgeries.

I decided to come to Korea and see Dr. Lee.

I saw all doctors at Wooridul gathered and shared their opinion about my case. During procedure, I was able to communicate with the surgeon if I feel discomfort or pain since the surgery does not require general anesthesia.

I felt very comfortable during the procedure, and I could walk after an hour. It was wonderful that no longer feel leg pain.

I found that all staffs and nurses at Wooridul are very kind and ready to help whenever I need. For me, it was great pleasure to come and get treatment at Wooridul!
