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.
