Hair Transplant Technology Astonishing the World

The reputation of Kyungpook National University Hospital (KNUH) in the field of hair transplant and restoring research is attracting foreign patients and medical personnel.

The Hair Transplantation Center of the KNUH received 95 foreign patients from Russia, China and Arab in 2011. The number of foreign patients is on the rise as Dr. Kim Jung Chul, the director of the Hair Transplantation Center of the KNUH, is receiving worldwide recognition as a renowned hair transplant specialist. Many foreign doctors around the world are visiting KNUH to learn Dr. Kim's hair transplant techniques.

Japan, Learning the Orthopaedic surgery, hip and knee replacement of South Korea

Chonnam National University Hwasun Hospital in South Korea ranks among the highest in Korea for its practice in the field of orthopaedic surgery.

As the director of the Joint Center at Chonnam National University Hwasun Hospital (CNUHH), Professor Rim Yoon-taek has received international recognition in the field of orthopaedic surgery. Doctors around the world are visiting the center to observe the Live Surgery conducted by Professor Yoon.

In September, Professor Yoon conducted the "live surgery" for visiting doctors from Japan and others. During this course, a patient from Vladivostok, Russia received surgery after three failed attempts in China. After the live surgery, the visiting doctors remarked, "this state-of-the-art surficial technique is really amazing" and added that "not only was the operation method differentiating, but the dexterity of the medical team was astonishing".

Professor Yoon has been inviting foreign doctors periodically for about 10 years and has been educating his surgical technique. About 250 foreign doctors have been trained until now. He stated, "I expect that more foreign patients and doctors who seek state-of-the-art joint medical care will visit Korea."
