Save your time, money, and pain - go somewhere else! I had spine surgery at Wooridul in Seoul in October, 2017. After the surgery, I stayed in the hospital for almost 1 week because my leg pain was not... more better after surgery. In fact, it got worse. I explained it to the doctors repeatedly, but they denied any problem with the surgery and sent me home saying it would improve. It worsened, and I was bedridden, couldn't walk or even sit for months. I then went to Singapore, received treatment (a different operation), and when immediately after the operation all my pain and symptoms were gone. Wooridul may have good doctors, but I got a bad one, and neither he nor the other doctors would admit they messed up with me. When I contacted them later, they still denied doing anything wrong, even though I have other doctors' statements and diagnostics that clearly show they did the wrong operation on me! Stay clear of this place!
