Treatment Philosophy

    The legs of a patient
    sitting on a chair
    are described.

    Through the image of a patient sitting stably,
    the treatment philosophy of Central Varicose Vein Clinic on wishing for health and recovery of the patient’s legs were described.

    Legs are the pillars of the human body, and play the role of a root in a tree.
    Central Varicose Vein Clinic performs treatment to enable the patient’s legs to perform these roles stably.

    Central Varicose Vein Clinic was opened in 2007 for priority treatment
    on Varicose Vein, and the word of mouth on the outstanding skills
    of Central Varicose Vein Clinic had spread to have patients visiting
    from all over Korea, USA, Canada, and even Koreans living in South America.
    Central Varicose Vein Clinic has grown to be the leading varicose vein clinic in Gangnam,
    visited by not only patients living in Korea, but also foreigners all around the world.

    It was not easy to get close with the patients due to the imposing
    and serious image of the ‘Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery’.
    As a thoracic & cardiovascular surgeon,
    there were abundant amount of clinical experiences on varicose vein surgery
    on the lower limbs through the coronary artery bypass graft,
    so this major was able to be utilized on opening the clinic,
    and decided on priority treatment of varicose vein to be closer to the patients.

    That is because of the philosophy
    to protect the rights
    and interests of the patients
    that are working hard in life.

    It is a pity to see the patients not being suspicious of varicose vein even when there are clear symptoms.
    Until the blood vessels are protruding on the legs,
    the patients carry their heavy legs to attend their jobs diligently due to a great amount of work and no time to rest.
    However, our secondary heart, the calves are suffering from the burden,
    and the patients are in pain from the swollen and heavy legs. What you see is not everything.

    When Varicose Vein was excluded from compensation of actual expense insurance in 2016 to intrude
    with the rights and interests of the patients,
    the position as the Chairman of Real Cost Insurance Countermeasure Committee
    by the Medical World was taken to inform the iniquity of the provision to the Financial Supervisory Commission,
    and he succeeded in amending the standard clauses.
    That is because of the philosophy to protect the rights and interests of the patients that are working hard in life.
