      Artificial Joint connection
      Procedures involving artificial joints minimize bleeding and pain by making only minimal incisions, and ensure fast recovery afterward. Himchan applies customized, highly durable artificial joints that meet all the requirements and needs of each patient (e.g., high-convex joints, ceramic joints, joints for women, etc.), while dramatically improving the success rate of surgery by inserting them in the right locations identified by its computer navigation system. The center provides a comprehensive range of treatments and preventive measures not only for knee joints, but also for shoulders, feet, hands, and hips as well.

      Spine surgery
      Himchan first considers non-invasive treatment options, based on precise examinations and accurate diagnoses. By providing exercise and physiotherapy as well as injections, the hospital seeks to minimize surgical burden on patients, while offering a host of other customized, non-surgical treatment programs including neuroplastic therapy, spinal therapy, endoscopy, and so forth. The hospital recommends minimal yet active surgical programs only when all these other options have failed.
