Collaborative practices result in more accurate diagnoses and treatments
Single port laparoscopic surgery minimizes scaring and promotes faster recovery

Laparoscopic Surgery Center

We have widened the range of laparoscopic surgery to cover hernia, gallstone and appendicitis as well as colorectal cancer by being the first hospital in Korea to introduce laparoscopic surgery for colon cancer in 2001. In 2012 we introduced the single port laparoscopic surgery which needs only about 1.5~4cm incision in umbilicus, reducing the pain after surgery and shortening the hospital stay.

Advantages of  Laparoscopic Surgery Center

Specialized doctors with sufficient clinical experience and career experience as a professor in university hospitals

An active cooperative consulting system in coordination with other medical departments, such as the gastroenterology and radiology

Customized treatment management from the examination period before surgery to after leaving the hospital

Consistent research activities and presentation of accomplishments from academic meetings for the patient safety and precise treatment

What is the single port laparoscopic surgery?

The traditional laparoscopic surgery is to incise 3~5 points on the abdomen . The single port laparoscopic surgery is to operate by incising only one point sized about 1.5~4cm. It is regarded as a difficult surgical technique which is accomplished by inserting a camera and operating tool into a single hole through the laparoscopic port. It is an operation which leaves almost no mark, it has the advantages of less pain, a quick recovery time and shorter hospital stay due to minimizing the surgical point, there is also a low risk of complication, such as adhesion.


It is a disease that a bulge occurs in the abdomen due to intestine being pushed through the weakened abdominal wall. This is caused by a weakening of and hole creation on the abdominal wall, which normally support abdominal pressure. It is difficult to treat naturally or with medication. As a result, surgery is only method for treatment.

A unique specialty of Hansol Hospital
The ‘Totally Extraperitoneal (TEP) laparoscopic hernia repair which accesses extraperitoneally’ is a method of covering the weakened abdominal wall and closing the hole to prevent the hernia by inserting an artificial membrane between the peritoneum and abdominal wall. Hernia does not usually recur after this operation because it is effective in strongly reinforcing the membrane in proportion to the increased internal pressure. The operation for both inguinal hernia using laparoscopic methods has the advantage of no additional incisions, because the hernia can be checked and operated through an endoscope during the operation at one side of the hernia.
- It is possible to leave the hospital within 12~24 hours after hospitalization for laparoscopic surgery due to hernia.
- There is less pain and a rapid recovery.
- It is effective for recurring hernia and hernia on both sides.

Colon cancer

In many cases, diseases in the colon are not felt by the patient as the colon is insensitive. The survival rate of patients which a colon cancer is high when it is found early, but the survival ratio becomes lower when it is left untreated. Therefore, early detection through regular colonoscopic examination is very important.

A unique specialty of Hansol Hospital
We operate patients with a one stop system, connecting to the operation when colon cancer and rectal cancer are found during the colonoscopy by having a link with the endoscopic center. This system is trusted by the patients to whom time is valuable and provides a feeling of safety. In addition, we make all our efforts to reduce the recurrence rate and to heighten the survival rate. We accomplish this by creating a close relationship with the patient, and using the closely contacted 1:1 examination and treatment system for early detection and management after operating of the cancer.


The acute appendicitis is a disease which frequently arises across all age groups, from children to the elderly. However, it may be fatal if the infected appendix is not resected. Pain in the lower right abdomen is the most characteristic symptom, which is easy to overlook because such a symptom appears slowly while inflammation develops.

A unique specialty of Hansol Hospital
Appendicitis has been cured by single port laparoscopic surgery. The appendicitis is examined through a rapid and precise check on the day of visiting, and it is forwarded to operation immediately.


A gallstone is a hard stone formed with the condensation of bile juice made from the liver due to many reasons. In the case of big gallstones or accompanying inflammation, symptoms like RUQ pain, fever, it may recur if they are left untreated, and it has a possibility to develop into gallbladder carcinoma.

A unique specialty of Hansol Hospital
We make an endeavor for rapid recovery and reducing pain by single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The gall, wherein the gallstone was created, has a larger possibility of forming gallstones again and, in most cases, the gall bladder bladder which contained the gallstone is degraded in its function. Therefore, eventually the entire gall shall be removed because the gallstone may clog the bile duct and induce the cholangitis.

Rectal prolapse

It is the state of escape of the entire rectal wall, located underneath the colon and upper side of the anus. The rectal prolapse is a disease of frequent recurrence and there are many operation skills.

A unique specialty of Hansol Hospital
A skilled doctor operates on the rectal prolapse using the laparoscope. The operation for rectal prolapse is a surgery made through a small hole without making an incision. The rate of recurrence is less than that of surgery through the anus, and there is no damage to the anal sphincter. Accordingly, it is an operational method recommended to the patient with recurred rectal prolapse.
