DEPARTMENT OF ONCOLOGY

The oncology clinic began in 1969, when the first specialized building was built, where the diagnosis and treatment of oncological diseases was carried out.

For 45 years, the clinic has preserved traditions, accumulated experience, and carried out constant research.Our focus on the care, convenience, and comfort of patients, has allowed Yonsei to become the leading medical institution not only in Korea, but also in Asia.

Severance Hospital is focused on comprehensive medical services – the treatment of oncological diseases, their prevention, as well as restoration and return to normal life after the treatment, subsequent planned examinations – all of this improves the quality of life for patients.

Severance creates a pleasant atmosphere during your stay in our hospital – bright and warm colors of the interior, comfortable chairs for patients, their families and attendants, a lot of light – all this helps create conditions for effective treatment and helps patients find hope for recovery.

Also, for the convenience of patients in the clinic, the “best team” system was created, the essence of which is that specialists of different departments conduct a simultaneous reception-consultation, which allows patients to receive a consult without visiting each specialist separately. Thanks to this system, the waiting time is shortened, the degree of patient satisfaction increases and the effectiveness of consultations is increased.

In addition, to conducting high-precision radiotherapy in our clinic, for the first time in Korea, the first linear accelerator LINAC 13 MV and a device for carrying out tomotherapy were introduced. Also in our clinic, for the first time in Asia, there were devices for radiotherapy with modulated intensity – Robotic IMRT, and at the moment the clinic prepares for the introduction of baryon therapy devices.

The beginning of treatment – before the onset of the disease.

Oncological diseases refer to complex and rarely diagnosed diseases. The probability of oncological disease is high, but it is impossible to begin its treatment in advance. In this regard, the clinic operates a center for cancer prevention, where consultations are conducted with specialists of different profiles. Prevention of cancer in the center is the main task, and patients in high-risk groups are consulted on the ways and means of eliminating dangerous and provocative elements, special preventive programs are developed that take into account all the individual characteristics of patients based on a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet. Thus, the Yonsei Cancer Department supports the idea that prevention is the best treatment.

Robotic Surgery plays a leading role in the removal of cancerous tumors.

In 2005, Severance Hospital, the first in Korea, began using the Da Vinci robot equipment – equipment designed to perform robotic operations to remove malignant tumors. In the Yonsei Oncology Clinic, there are 3 specialized operating rooms for conducting operations by a robot. Typically, the methods of surgical intervention through robotic surgery are used to remove malignant solid tumors that are part of a group of high risk and aggressive cancers.

At the moment, the clinic has conducted more than 10,000 operations by robot. The clinic first developed methods of conducting operations by robot, which are now used to remove tumors of the thyroid gland, stomach and intestinal tumors. For the first time in Korea, the clinic performed a robotic operation to remove the gallbladder.
Thanks to the expertise of our robotic surgery specialists, the first in Korea and the second in Asia, an education center for training surgical robotics for physicians wishing to acquire skills in performing robotic operations was opened on the premises of Severance Hospital.
