 The Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Korea Health Industry Development Agency (KHIDI) are conducting a sharing healthcare project to strengthen the image of national medical brands and to promote the excellence of domestic medical care throughout the world. Catholic Kwandong University International St. Mary’s Hospital has presented new hope through this sharing project to the Russian patient Sergey who is suffering from hip arthritis.

 

Sergei, who works at a mart in Khabarovsk, Russia, could not work properly due to an unexplained hip pain despite his young age. Even if he wanted to go to the hospital, the salary of 16,000 rubles was hard to get proper treatment in Russia and he was limited in what he could do because his vision was low enough to get a disability grade.

In particular, his new baby is on the way, so it is imperative to treat the pain in the hip joint for the future child.

 

Sergey arrived in Incheon International Airport on July 3rd, and he was able to get to the hospital directly through the Russian interpreter's pickup service of the hospital. The test showed Sergei's hip pain was due to a serious 'hip arthritis'.

Sergei's hip arthritis is so severe that it cannot be treated with medication, and Professor Chae Dong-sik (orthopedic surgeon), who is a primary doctor, performed artificial joint surgery on May 5. As a result of the successful completion of the surgery and his dedication to rehabilitation for two weeks, Sergei was able to return to Russia after his discharge on the 21st.

 

Professor Chae Dong-sik (orthopedic surgeon), who is a doctor in charge, said, "It seems that the recovery speed was quick because of the patient's active will and effort and actively applied for rehabilitation treatment. I am glad that I presented health to a family. I pray for him.”

Dr. Chae did not hesitate to support Sergei's second life.

 

Mr. Sergei also said, "I am grateful to receive good treatment through sharing medicine project in Korea. While I was admitted to the International St. Mary’s Hospital, I was able to feel every consideration of Professor Chae Dong-sik, nurses, physical therapists, and coordinators.  I will live hard for my future child and my family with new joints from Korea.”
