The patient was treated of liver cancer

In 2013, we came to Seoul for treatment in the Samsun clinic with a father who was diagnosed with "Education in the liver, a size 5.5 by 5 mm" in Russia. In the Korean clinic, the father underwent a complete examination in 2 days, all in one place, without queue, by appointment and time: CT, MRI, PET, FGDS and colonoscopy with sleeping pills, biopsy of education, oncomarkers, ECG, X-ray.

After that he was diagnosed: "Hepatocellular carcinoma without metastases." The father was touched by the caring and careful attitude of the medical staff during the procedures, while everyone was clearly engaged in his own business. With such tumor sizes and with such localization (in the center), usually the surgical method is not shown, radioablation also does not fit, only chemotherapy, to which the tumor is not sensitive. The prognosis was pessimistic, the father's life time was estimated at 2-3 months. But at the consultation of a radiologist, chemotherapist and surgeons, it was decided to carry out the operation, since it was the only chance to survive the patient. They warned his father about the high risk, the technical difficulties of the operation due to the localization and size of the tumor. Father, of course, was in shock, he could not believe that he had a malignant tumor, and that everything was so serious. After all, he did not feel this tumor: he had no pain anywhere, his appetite was normal, he did not lose weight, there was only a small weakness, which he wrote off for age (70 years). This is the cunning of cancer - no symptoms! Only an annual preventive examination from the top to the heel can reveal the cancer at an early stage. We agreed to an operation. Operated by Dr. Kim. The operation lasted 6 hours.

Everything went well. Six days after the operation, we flew home. What amazed me about in Korea?

When I saw how the healthcare system works in Korea, I immediately relaxed, and I had full confidence in doctors and medical personnel. Everyone clearly did his job. For one nurse 2 patients, she practically did not leave them day and night. I did not have to take care of my father, everything was done by medical staff.

It was unusual that relatives were twice a day run to patients in intensive care, and without any shoe covers and masks. But the most amazing thing is that on the second day after such a difficult operation, my father walked around the corridor all day long!

Has noted kindness of Koreans, modesty, patience, diligence, the valid relation to the doctor. The doctor said once and everything, no one argues, does not ask again, does not follow him, if there are questions - sign up for a reception and wait. A very clear organization of working time and subordination, and hence culture.

I want to thank Dr. Kim again for his golden hands, the doctor who led the first reception, a very intelligent, literate and sincere person. All this time we had a Russian coordinator next to us, who translated, recorded for research, took a doctor, solved our everyday problems, and most importantly - morally supported, all 6 hours while the operation was near me. My father and I are grateful for her professionalism and excellent human qualities. All the issues solved quickly, clearly, without fuss.

The patient was treated of thoracic aortic aneurysm

October 5, 2011 my son (2 years), made an endovascular operation to close the interatrial defect (11mm). We still can not believe that we had an operation. Many times re-read the topic on the forum about invasive operations and dreamed that my son, you can close the defect in this way. Unfortunately, in Kazakhstan, we have not reached the age of 15 kg. weight such closures do not, only by the open method. Yes, and child cardiac surgery is just beginning to develop. All parents, if possible, take the children to Russia, Germany, South Korea, Israel. So I began to collect information about the clinics, where it is better to do the operation. By a fluke we got to Samsung. I'm not sure how many quarters this hospital occupies, but it's huge, it feels like it's in the forest, although it's located in the heart of Seoul. In advance, I apologize for the pun in the writings, I will certainly write in detail about our stay in the clinic. Now, I just want to say thanks to our endovascular surgeon Kang I Sok, the entire 9W pediatric department and the department for working with Russian-speaking patients Sonia, Lisa and Mr. Chu. For their personal involvement in the recovery of my little son. Especially the interpreter Sone who met us at the airport, accompanied at the examinations, when the operation was supported me morally and in general became my native person. Sonia did not just fulfill her duties, but she really sympathized. We flew home on October 14, I look anxiously at my son's leg (more precisely, I constantly look at her), but I see nothing there. No bruise, no scars, if I had not seen his leg right after the operation, you might think that he was not given a puncture. Lord, is this really the modern high tech technology. For all the stay in the clinic, he practically did not cry, except for the time when it was impossible to eat 6 hours before the operation (from 4.30 am to 11 am), about which he at that time sucks his breast, and when he was not given mother's milk, he hysterically raised , but this one, he could not be reassured by the whole department. How I transferred all this, do not describe in words.
I want to note the high professionalism of the sisters, how they quickly and painlessly install catheters, take blood, how they change the adhesive plasters on these catheters, wipe the puncture site with special napkins, massage the brush and fingers from sagging! Find an approach to every child. Even when the son did not want to drink medicine, and kicked! The nurse only smiled, and on my slap to my son for the spilled medicine said Dont steal, zisis baby. Type is a child, he can do anything! In Korea, an interesting mentality: the old and the children are the highest caste, the old people should all bow down, almost everything is allowed to children!
The treatment was at the highest level. So everything is organized and computerized. When you get to the department, a paper bracelet is put on the pen on the handle, on which there is all the information about the child and the treatment prescribed. When you go to another examination, the doctor already knows who will come and what examination to do. While doing the examination, the child watches cartoons, after examinations, we walk in the garden on a special baby carriage with a tripod, where all sorts of flashing sensors and droppers hang. However, it was difficult to put a son in the carriage after the operation, he runs like a battery, and I followed him like a second battery, just a dropper at the speed We were lying on the 9th floor. In the same sector, if you go down to floor B1 there are several restaurants, grocery (like a super market), flower shops, a shop where you can buy everything from diapers to a travel bag, souvenir shops, a bank, a pharmacy. We did not buy food, because they were fed patients with a choice of European or Korean cuisine 3 times a day. Order from the menu. Food is carried by a special machine. About her write separately
I want to tell all parents whose children have heart surgery, do not despair, find a good clinic, trust the surgeon, and get the best treatment.

The patient underwent hair transplant

I did not regret for a minute about the choice. Everything was well organized. They were taken from the airport, settled in a hotel that was two minutes from the hotel. There were translators who always accompanied you everywhere and always explained everything. Separate thanks to Anna and Tahir. Thank you very much for the doctors. I can not yet judge the final result, but at this stage everything is exactly as I wanted. Thanks to the nurses and anesthesiologists. I have never been hurt (for me it was especially important) thanks to Olga, who sent me to this clinic.
