Jaseng Hospital of Oriental Medicine
Jaseng Hospital of Oriental Medicine treats all kinds of musculoskeletal conditions and diseases, including serious spinal disorders, without surgery—even in cases when patients can no longer walk due to severe back pain. Jaseng has amassed vast clinical experience since it opened in 1999, providing more than 500,000 treatments every year, and is a leader in the globalization of Korean Traditional Medicine.
Jaseng’s main facility has 174 inpatient beds and 120 doctors and nurses. Its specialized centers include more than 30 clinics for spinal disorders, bone and joint ailments, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, internal medicine, gynecology, and more. Jaseng has also launched nonsurgical spinal treatment branch hospitals in the city of Bucheon, as well as branch clinics in Bundang, Ilsan, Mokdong, and Jangchungdong. Jaseng has expanded into the US, with four centers in California (Fullerton, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose). The group is looking to open additional hospitals throughout the US and Europe.
For optimal healthcare using the best nonsurgical methods from Western and Eastern medicine, the hospital employs state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, including MRI and CT scanners, in addition to traditional therapies. Chuna spine manipulation, for example, utilizes a push-and-pull technique for spinal alignment. Acupuncture (including injections of herbal extract and bee venom) releases tightened muscles, while Chuna herbal medicine strengthens degenerated bones, discs, and ligaments. Its core ingredient, a compound called Shinbarometin, is patented in Korea, the US, and Japan. Physical and exercise therapy are implemented to prevent recurrence.
These therapies are now attracting worldwide attention. Many Western doctors have visited Jaseng to learn about its treatment system and techniques, and the hospital has conducted collaborative research with Harvard Medical School’s Oscher Research Center and the University of California–Irvine School of Medicine.
In a recent study with Harvard, 95 percent of 128 patients diagnosed with severely herniated discs were fully recovered after six months of Jaseng’s nonsurgical treatment with Chuna medication, Chuna manipulation, and herbal/bee venom acupuncture; 77 percent of them experienced dramatic pain relief within two months.
The hospital’s International Clinic has now treated more than 2,600 foreign patients (including more than 20 ambassadors). The clinic boasts staff members who speak English, German, Japanese, and Chinese, and language interpretation services are provided. International services include airport transport, assistance with medical documents, online consultations, second opinions, travel and accommodations, insurance claims and local travel.
