Integrated Internal Medicine

Boasting the World's Highest Cancer Survival Rate Thanks to Innovative Cancer Treatment Technology

Status

Korea is the world-renowned leader in cancer treatment. Global no. 5 plus three of the top 20 global hospitals for cancer treatment are based in Korea. In addition, hospitals, universities and various research institutes in the country are dedicated to new medical technologies used for cancer treatment. A majority of foreign patients who come to Korea receive robotic surgeries to treat various cancers, including colorectal cancer and stomach cancer.

Strength

The survival rate of patients with major cancers in Korea is the highest in the world. The five-year survival rate of stomach cancer patients is 77% in Korea, which is two or three times higher than that of the US (32.4%) and UK (21.6%).
Plus, approximately 1,000 doctors around the world apply for medical training in Korea to learn the country's integrated cancer treatment systems, including integrated precision medicine platforms that leverage clinical data on cancer patients, in addition to robotic surgeries
