Introduction to the Department

The orthopedic surgery department is working with the Department of Internal Medicine for rheumatism and the diagnostic radiology department at the joint center for general diagnoses, treatments, education, and research related to diseases in bones, joints, nerves, and muscles in the spine and in the limbs.

This department treats for traumas, diseases, deformations, and tumors of the bone and joints. Moreover, this department operates special clinics for each of the 8 special areas (knee joints and sports medicine, hip joint, bone and soft tissue tumors and upper limb diseases, spine, children’s orthopedic and cerebral palsy, feet disease and deformation clinic, rheumatism disease clinic, hand diseases, and fine surgery) to provide more specialized medical services.

The orthopedic surgery department of this hospital performs more than 3,000 surgeries such as cerebral palsy surgeries, surgeries for degenerative arthritis and bone fractures around the hip joint using artificial hip joints, surgeries for degenerative arthritis using artificial knee joints, surgeries to restore rotator cuff/articular labrum ruptures using arthroscopes, etc.

Koo, Kyung-Hoi

Koo, Kyung-Hoi | M.D.

Dr. Koo, leader of the Hip Joint Division of SNU Bundang Hospital Joint Center, has been working on the researches regarding pathogenesis, natural history, and prognosis of the femoral head osteonecrosis. He is a world expert on osteotomy; a joint preserving operation in patients with osteonecrosis. He serves as the president of ARCO (Association Research Circulation Osseous), international expert group for osteonecrosis since 2012. Dr. Koo has performed thousands of hip joint replacements and he has extensive specialty training in the surgical treatment of complex hip disorders, including secondary or revision joint replacement surgery and infected joints. Dr. Koo has been instrumental in bringing a revolutionary hip replacement; ceramic-on-ceramic total hip arthroplasty. His team developed a new hip prosthesis for revision surgery and osteoporotic hip fracture. He has published over 60 articles and book chapters regarding femoral head osteonecrosis, osteotomy and hip replacement arthroplasty. His team is presently working on new techniques of arthroscopic surgery in several hip disease including femoroacetabular impingement and sports injury around hip joint.
