After you contact the hospital or the above person, you can set up an appointment. Then you make a flight schedule in advance. You make the stay in South Korea for about 7 days or more.

We will assist you if you have any difficulties in getting from the airport to the hotel. The next day or a few days later, depending on your bodily condition or on your sightseeing plan, you can go through the pre-surgery test and the actual surgery in the afternoon. The next day you will be discharged to the hotel room or wherever your living quarters might be. After a few days rest in Korea, if you would prefer that, you will get on the flight back to your home country. The whole cost will depend on the class of the flight and the days you stay at the hotel or other places you go. Roughly speaking the total cost, including flight, room and board, from leaving your home country to arriving back there, can be from US$5,000 to 6,000, which is much less than the price you would spend anywhere else in the world.

There are some hotels for your reservation as follows:

1. Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas

3.2km away from the hospital. We can give you a ride.

2. JW Marriott Hotel Seoul

4. Shilla Stay, Seocho (business hotel)

It is more convenient to choose ‘Shilla Stay, Seocho.’ Other branches are much further away from the hospital.

5. Hotel Peyto, Gangnam (business hotel)

6. Urban Place, Gangnam

Preparation prior to surgery and the day of surgery

There is no need to fast prior to surgery as the surgery administers local anesthesia. Patients do not need to stop taking their regular medicine either. Medicine for hypertension or diabetes should be taken as usual. A simple pre-medical checkup is necessary for surgery, such as an ultrasound and a blood test.

Kang Non-Mesh Hernia Repair usually takes about 20 minutes. An additional 10 minutes may be taken to stay in the surgery room for preparation before surgery and wrap up after surgery.

The remaining effects of the local anesthetic used during surgery would prevent pain for several hours even after the surgery. Pain may begin slowly but can usually be controlled by painkillers. For those who undergo one-day surgery, about 50% of them take a painkiller shot soon after surgery. In most cases, it is not as painful and patients tend to take painkillers from the next day. However, pain like a tight feeling in the surgical part while lying down, getting up and walking may persist for about a week. Pain due to artificial mesh surgery can be more severe and persist longer.

Patients can leave the hospital on the day of the surgery or the next day. A one-night stay is recommended for those who had hernia surgery on both sides or who are older.

After discharge

Special adhesive for surgery is used on the surgical region and patients do not have to visit the hospital to get treatment on the surgical part or to get stitches removed.

  • Walking : soon after operation
  • Meal : normal meal soon after operation
  • Pain killer : 3-4 days
  • Taking shower : from the next day
  • Wound care : just changing preformed dressing gauze, no need to remove stitches
  • Flight : even the next day is possible
  • Back to work : any time, even the next day
  • Jogging and swimming : after a week
  • 2 weeks later : No need to limit any physical activity, but listen to what your body tells you
