A New Life Starts at Chonnam National University Hospital

Chinese Patient Suffers from Brain Disease

Free Surgery Results from Sad Case... "Impressed by Dedication"

 

 

             

                          < Shin Shee Woo-Ung takes hold of Professor Kim In-Young's hands

                                    and thanks him for performing her brain surgery.

 

  "I feel like that a new life has started for me at Chonnam National University Hospital Hwasun (CNUHH). I sincerely thank the medical staff." Soon to be discharged, Mokpo(Jeonnam Province) resident Shin Shee Woo-Ung (age 33) laughs brightly. Seven years ago, she crossed over to South Korea from Harbin and got married but has spent day after day this year immersed in worry.

 

  She was admitted to a hospital in Mokpo after suffering from severe headaches and nausea. She was shocked when diagnosed with " 'arteriovenous malformation of the brain,' in the cerebral vessel and needed surgery."

 

  She didn't know what to do. The cost of the surgery was a heavy burden on the family of four including her young son, mother-in-law and husband who works as a day laborer at the Daebul Industrial Complex. The fear of undergoing an unknown brain surgery was also great.

 

  She then saw a ray of hope; to ask for assistance from Chonnam National University Hospital Hwasun(General Director Kim Hyung-Joon). This past June, CNUHH signed an MOU with South Jeolla Province to cover medical expenses for multicultural families (including North Korean defectors).

 

  Being the first hospital in Korea to operate a clinic specializing in brain tumor in 2004 and the hospital's reputation for their solid treatment capability was a great comfort to her.

 

 

  She was hospitalized at CNUHH and was operated on with the 'Gamma Knife Perfexion.' The Gamma Knife Perfexion is a state-of-the-art radiation therapy device that can perform brain surgery without general anesthesia and without makingan incision to the head. CNUHH was the second hospital to introduce the equipment in Asia and has performed over 3,000 operations.

 

  Professory Kim In-Young(Neurosurgery) was the surgeon who performed the successful operation. Professor Kim assured the patient that "your progress is good and you only have to come back to the clinic every few months."

 

  "I was touched by the careful treatment and the friendly nursing staff. I will never forget the happiness and grace that was brought back to my family and me."

 

  Her eyes brimmed with tears as she reached for Professor Kim's hand with a bright smile.
