Wooridul Hospital has provided various minimum invasive surgical procedures and surgeries and also non-operative treatments for patients to be freed from their spondylopathy and pain and get back to normal life. The most important reason to be able to possess and disseminate the world class spondylography has come from the unstinted investments for the academic researches and education.

Wooridul Hospital insists with 5 step procedures of accurate inspection process to provide the most appropriate approach for patients: conservative treatments as progress observation, injection, physical therapy and therapeutic exercise followed by rather offensive non-operative treatments as spondylotherapy, neuroplasty, or neurolysis. Then limited to the irresponsive patients, Wooridul moves on to the selectively spinal surgery. The principle of phased and all-around spinal treatment has been kept ever since.
Wooridul applies the principle of minimum invasive surgery to expect the fast recovery of patients with minimum cuts and to protect the undamaged tissues, not only in spinal treatments but as well as in arthropathy treatments.
