Greetings

Welcome to Kwandong University Myongji Hospital Neurovascular Center

Neurovascular diseases are the second greatest cause of death in Korea, following cancer. Cerebral Aneurysm, the deadliest of all neurovascular conditions, leads to increasing dilatation of arteries in the brain exerting arterial wall stress, which will eventually rupture if progresses without intervention. Called a time bomb in the brain among medical professionals, aneurysm is relatively common, sustained by 2-3% of the total population with 5000 incidents arising every year.

Myongji Hospital Neurovascular Center boasts staff with rich clinical experience and the latest technologies. The Hybrid Suite in the Center integrates neurosurgery operating theater, cerebral angiography and MR for the first time in Asia to offer the quickest yet most precise test, diagnosis and treatment to patients in critical conditions where every second matters.
