Oncology treatment in South Korea

Oncology treatment in South Korea

Oncology treatment in South Korea has brought positive results for international patients. Following the results of the Concord-2, South Korea posts the highest 5-year survival rates for stomach, thyroid and prostate cancer. It also tops the charts on breast cancer treatment. For oncology (all types, including oncology pediatric treatment) we only recommend JCI-accredited hospitals like Severance and Ajou, and local leaders such as Severance Hospital, Asan Medical Center, Samsung Medical Center and SNUH.
