 Seoul National University Hospital's (SNUH) Thoracic Surgery practice began in 1968. Today, it is one of the largest and most experienced surgery groups in Korea. The SNUH Thoracic Surgery Team performs a high volume of complex open-heart and general thoracic surgery procedures. 

 Of the 2,500 surgeries performed annually, frequently performed procedures are lung cancer surgery, coronary artery bypass surgery, and surgery for acquired valvular heart diseases. 

 The SNUH Thoracic Surgery Team offers a range of services that are important for treating any underlying health conditions and for any possible complications. SNUH Thoracic Surgeons and their assistants work closely with colleagues to ensure that patients return home with instructions for appropriate incision care, pain management, exercise and other activities of daily life. Recently, our team started patient satisfaction surveys to improve patient's care.
