By a happy chance, I fell into the hands of experienced doctors of the South Korean Samsung Medical Center. I was already preparing for an operation in Moscow. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, my predictions were 50 to 50. Our doctors are always afraid to take on extra responsibility for the operation. If something goes wrong in the end, they will say that this is not those 50 percent. Suddenly it turned out that my father had agreed without me that they would put me on an operation at the Samsung Center in South Korea. At first I thought he was joking – well, what kind of treatment can be in a clinic with a name like a TV. But dad insisted that I go there at least for a consultation. It turned out that this is one of the largest medical centers in South Korea with a worldwide reputation. I was examined by doctors from Korea and the United States. They made an impression on me that I could completely trust my life to them, although I didn’t always respond well to the doctors. Needless to say about the state-of-the-art equipment there! In medicine, Korea justifies its leadership in the field of world technology too. I think I had a brilliant operation. For those doctors, this is their usual job. After the anesthesia, I did not feel any pain. Postoperative observations showed that the tumor was completely removed. In six months, I will go there again for a medical examination. I am absolutely sure that I won this terrible disease with the help of Korean doctors!
There were many people, we had to wait, but it was worth it. Professor Kim, Seok Jin, thank you very much for helping in the treatment of my mother.
Hospital Samsung in Seoul is super! The best medical center in Korea! I have been observed here by neurosurgeons and neuropathologists for 11 years and they always treat me friendly and kindly.
The level of the Samsung clinic’s services in South Korea is very high! The medical staff is impressive! I have not seen yet such an attention to all the little details.
All services were provided on time, each stage of work was thought out, several times it was discussed, I received instructions, which were easy and simple to follow in a country with a foreign language. The translator met me on time, and she led me to the doctor, who confirmed the diagnosis of Moscow professors. I would like to receive advice from the doctor regarding alternative treatment methods, but the verdict is unequivocal – the need for surgery, which is proposed by Moscow doctors.

Samsung Medical Center publishes over 20 original articles in international journals every year. Many of the recently published papers have been based on clinical trials in complex surgical cases.
Collaboration with Mayo Clinic enables Samsung’s employees:
Since its founding, Samsung Medical Center has integrated and developed the model with the motto “Patient-Centered Hospital”, which has become a new concept in Korea. The clinic is equipped with advanced medical infrastructure, including a communication system (OCS), a photo archiving communication system (PACS), an automated clinical pathology system, and a logistics automation system.
Thanks to the quality of service and continuous development, the clinic has been awarded:
The main purpose of screening is to check the state of health and detect diseases at an early stage.
At the Samsung Medical Center, examinations are carried out quickly and methodically within a few hours. In case of detection of deviations according to the results of examinations, the patient is sent to a specialized department to receive the necessary treatment.
Check-ups at Samsung Clinic take place in 4 stages:
Samsung Clinic is the first in Korea to provide comprehensive medical care for all types of cancer, from prevention and examinations to treatment and rehabilitation. Samsung Medical Center has developed a comprehensive consultation system and interdisciplinary therapies to provide fast and accurate treatment.
For the treatment of concomitant diseases, specialists of the oncological center have the opportunity to get advice from colleagues from other centers.
The structure of the clinic includes specialized departments for each of the common types of cancer. The Colorectal Cancer Center at Samsung Clinic is ranked # 1 in the Treatment Evaluation Ranking by the Health Insurance Monitoring and Evaluation Agency.
The Oncology Center is a leader in the treatment of oncohematological diseases and bone marrow transplantation. One of the clinic’s developments is a new assessment scale that allows for predicting changes in the condition of patients with extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma.
Neurosurgical departments occupy a significant part in the structure of Samsung Clinic. Patients from all over the world travel to neurosurgery centers for quality treatment and postoperative care.
Samsung Clinic has a number of features. This is why patients choose them:
The clinic provides a high level of care for newborns, from the diagnosis of congenital anomalies of the digestive system in the fetus to maintenance in the neonatal intensive care unit.
The medical center performs operations to remove a malignant tumor before and after chemotherapy in children.
The clinic specializes in the following operations in pediatric surgery:
Samsung provides surgical treatment for various congenital anomalies of the digestive system, including esophageal atresia, anomalies in the stomach, duodenum, and small intestine, and anorectal malformations.
Pediatric Surgery Department performs both Kasai surgery, which is the treatment of patients with congenital biliary atresia, and liver transplantation.
The department of pediatric surgery performs minimally invasive operations on congenital anomalies of the digestive system (duodenal atresia, esophageal atresia, congenital diaphragmatic hernia) in newborns.
Operations are performed to preserve the anal sphincter using a laparoscope. Also, bowel training is carried out after congenital anorectal anomalies together with parents until the child’s bowel function is normalized.
Choledochal cysts are treated based on the experience of liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery.
Treatment of lymphangioma is provided using sclerotherapy in combination with surgery.
The clinic performs inguinal hernia surgeries and simple surgeries for children aged 2 months and older in a team with pediatric anesthesiologists in the morning without hospitalization so that patients can return home in the afternoon of the same day.
The Transplantation Surgery Department makes every effort to improve the quality of life of patients with under-functioning liver, kidney, pancreas, intestines, and other organs through their transplantation.
The clinic is famous for 100% successful kidney transplantations.
Cell transplantation of the islets of Langerhans is a much safer option for patients with type 1 diabetes compared to pancreas transplantation. It was made possible thanks to the experience of the Transplantation Surgery Department at Samsung Clinic.
The transplantation team is the leader in laparoscopic liver resections with the highest number of successful surgeries in Korea.
Benefits of the Transplantation Department at Samsung Clinic:
The most common complications after liver transplantation are related to the bile ducts. To reduce the risk of complications, doctors use a new technique. First, they resect the portal vein and bile duct in the liver, and then dissect them. Next, an anastomosis of the bile duct is performed.
A blood-incompatible liver transplantation was successfully performed without rejection or other complications. Transplantation incompatible with the blood type is also performed on kidney recipients.
Specialists of Samsung Clinic performed liver transplantation at Dar Al Fouad Hospital in Egypt and at the National Children’s Hospital in Hanoi, Vietnam. The team’s success in overseas hospitals has gained a high reputation in the international transplant community.
The orthopedic surgeons of Samsung Medical Center have a good international reputation, which is confirmed by numerous surgeons from around the world. Foreign surgeons annually visit this department to take refresher courses.
Basic operations in orthopedic surgery:
The constant introduction and use of advanced innovative technologies in diagnostics and treatment are one of the important advantages of Samsung Clinic, which noticeably distinguishes it from other clinics.
Samsung Clinic has at its disposal:
Proton therapy is an advanced treatment that reduces recurrence and side effects by minimizing the dose of radiation that affects healthy tissue. A sparing effect is achieved by focusing the beam energy only on cancer-affected tissues.
Proton therapy is an advanced treatment that reduces recurrence and side effects by minimizing the dose of radiation that affects healthy tissue.
Samsung Medical Center is the only owner of the latest version – the equipment of the second generation of proton therapy.
Samsung Clinic introduced the latest ICON Gamma Knife model for the first time in Asia in 2016 and is currently the only medical center in Asia with such two units. Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a radiation therapy method that shows the same therapeutic effect as surgery but does not require an incision. It is carried out by intensive exposure only to the area of the brain tumor with high-energy gamma radiation.
It is the gold standard for radiation therapy of hard-to-reach tumors. The linear accelerator repeatedly rotates around the patient. It simultaneously creates a CT image and irradiates the tumor.
The method works using a magnetic field and radio waves. The procedure is completely painless. The doctor may order an MRI with contrast. This means that a contrast agent will be injected into the body, which improves visualization.
The device sends X-rays or electrons to the tumor. Tumor cells are destroyed without damaging healthy tissues.
The doctor injects a contrast agent into the vessels, making them visible on X-rays, MRI or CT. There is angiography of the arteries (arteriography), veins (venography), and lymphography.
It is a combination of two different methods, namely positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT). For research, the doctor injects the patient with a small amount of weakly radioactive substances, the so-called indicators. Their distribution in the cells of the body becomes visible using a PET camera. CT scans work with x-rays that pass through the body. This creates images of the internal structure of the patient’s body.
Da Vinci provides the most accurate and minimally invasive intervention. During the operation, the surgeon sits at the control panel. The doctor controls the robot’s arms and microsurgical instruments with millimeter precision. The doctor sees the surgical field in three dimensions with a tenfold magnification.
The cyclotron uses magnetic fields to make cancer cells absorb protons and other particles. This causes tumor cells to glow on PET-CT images. Experienced doctors use the cyclotron for the diagnosis of malignant tumors and directly for radiation therapy of various forms of cancer.
Computed tomography is used to diagnose various diseases and injuries. CT is necessary in case of bleeding, bone fracture, or if a stroke is suspected. CT plays an important role in the diagnosis of cancer. The doctor determines the size and location of tumors and the presence of metastases.
