The Tyumen Region and the Severance Hospital will develop cooperation in treating oncological diseases, conducting robotic operations, including of the ENT profile, organizing internships, and training doctors from the Tyumen Region in the Republic of Korea. This was discussed during the negotiations between representatives of the region and the hospital management.
The hospital was established in 1885. This is one of the largest health care facilities in Korea: more than 30,000 people visit it on daily basis. About forty thousand surgeries are performed here per year, including more than two thousand with the help of the da Vinci robot. He appeared here for the first time in Asia. And now eight of these robots are used in the clinic for surgeries, and another one is used for training. Over the last few years, the hospital has been the number one in the country in terms of service. Korean doctors are ready to share their experience with their colleagues from Tyumen.
Professor Byung Seok Lee, the head physician of the clinic, noted that the relationship between the hospital and the Tyumen Region has been developing for a long time. Thus, the hospital doctors visited Tyumen medical facilities last year.
"Our hospital is well known all over the world, work has already begun on the creation of diagnostic centers in Russia, and I hope this visit will give a new boost to our partnership," he said and added that there is a large training center in the clinic, where already more than 3,000 doctors from 30 countries of the world have had internships. 120 interns from various countries are currently undergoing training there.
Inna Kulikova, Director of the Tyumen Region Health Care Department, stressed that the experience of the Severance Hospital is very important for the further implementation of the Medical City project. "When building a new cancer center, we can take the best and the most advanced aspects from here: organizational, medical patient-oriented and information technologies that will help create a world-class medical cluster in the region," the head of regional health care department said.
