Thank you for visiting the homepage of the Gangnam
Severance Cancer Hospital.
The cancer hospital is running the gastro-esophageal cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic/biliary tract cancer, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, uterine/ovarian cancer and brain tumor centers, staffed by world-class medical teams. Each medical team consists of internists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine specialists, and radiologists. Therefore, various specialist opinions are integrated, and treatment decisions are made quickly and accurately in the pursuit of patient-centered and personalized care.
Gangnam Severance Cancer Hospital’s greatest strength is its efficient medical care system. One-stop service, including gastrointestinal endoscopy, demonstrates our passion, which other hospitals simply can’t imitate. We invite you to experience our procedural simplification and predictable pre and post-treatment explanation service, following the guidance of coordinators specialized in each disease. The cancer hospital enacts its best efforts to take the lead in unexplored fields with advanced technology. For example, female patients’ convenience has been improved through the establishment of a ultrasonography room that is exclusive for patients with breast and thyroid cancer. The cancer hospital strives to never miss an opportunity to make patients’ life easier. As part of these efforts, we are running the Wellness Clinic for skin, aesthetics, and mental health, as well as pain management in cancer patients.
In many cases, chemotherapy can be done as outpatient care without hospitalization, and relevant training for cancer-specialized coordinator is systematically conducted. After this year’s construction for the environmental improvement of the anticancer injection room is completed, patients will be able to enjoy care in an even better environment.
In many cases, cancer patients need to have a surgery. One of the distinct strengths pf Gangnam Severance Cancer Hospital is that patient safety is guaranteed by dedicated pre and post-operative care, even in unfavorable patient situations involving poor lung or heart function. Our outstanding high-level surgeries and results are not achieved by coincidence alone. The efforts of medical teams in a number of fields are behind all our successes. For example, laparoscopic or robotic cancer resection, complex surgery in multiple cancer sites, etc. We go beyond simply trying to achieve the highest survival rate: Gangnam Severance Cancer Hospital’s ultimate goal is to pursue perfectionism and help patients get back to healthy living.
The nutrition team in full charge of cancer patients is aware that a proper diet is crucial for fast rehabilitation and cancer prevention. We also have a “Peace of Mind” program for the mental well-being of patients and their families. This is because ensuring mental health and attention from their families have the most important impact in treatment of patients with severe conditions. Such a program for patients’ peace of mind and their families’ understanding of their disease is necessary. The cancer hospital aims to contribute to the early detection and prevention of cancer by holding health-related lectures for the public. As part of these efforts, we conduct the Walking Campaign to raise public awareness of breast cancer and the Healing-Touch Program for patients at the Breast Cancer Center. Centers at the cancer hospital also run their own blogs to share information about diseases.
Dear patients and their families, Everyone in our medical staff works late into the night to fight against disease and protect health. We hope to bring smiles to everyone visiting Gangnam Severance Cancer Hospital.
