MedicaTour: Russian representative at the SITMMT 2019 international exhibition in Seoul, South Korea
From 5 to 8 June, General Director of MedicaTour Tatiana Sokolov was invited to Seoul for the SITMMT 2019 medical tourism exhibition. 100 hosted buyers from different countries of the world were invited to the event to find new partners and get acquainted with the possibilities of Korean medicine.
During the exhibition, Tatiana held more than 25 meetings with Korean partners, which resulted in signing of cooperation agreements, and also met with representatives of clinics with whom MedicaTour has already been working for several years.
During the visit to Seoul, two FAM trips were also organised with visits to South Korean clinics.
In Korea, the direction of oncology, neurosurgery and orthopedics is very well developed, and check-ups are at the highest level and can be undergone in quickest time. Success in plastic surgery has long been known to the whole world.
An interesting meeting was with representatives of the Lee Moonwon clinic. The clinic specialises in hair restoration using national Korean medicine. Surgery on treating of Arnold Chiari disease is performed successfully in the clinic of St. Peter. Such surgery costs 10,000 dollars. A spinal cord electrostimulation program has also been developed for paralysed patients. Electrodes are implanted in the spinal cord for two months. After such treatment, patients begin to walk.
In South Korea, stem cells therapy is officially allowed for multiple sclerosis, and the Han Yang clinic employees invented a drug based on stem cells which treats amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Many South Korean clinics use robotic Da Vinci and robots for high-quality joint replacement arthroplasty.
“This is not my first time in South Korea. I always enjoy visiting this country. Every time I learn something new and innovative. Organisation of Korean events is always at the highest level. Our company has been actively cooperating with South Korean clinics for many years, and we received many excellent reviews of the results of treatment in South Korea,” Tatiana Sokolov commented her trip.
Also, as the official partner of MedTravelExpo, Tatiana Sokolov has actively attracted Korean partner clinics to participate in the Russian exhibition of medical tourism.
