★ Prolotherapy : a treatment that relieves pain and regenerates weakened ligaments and tendons.
★ Trigger point injection : a treatment that injects into tightened muscles that helps to relieve pain and prevent re-tightening.
★ Neurotherapy : a treatment that injects solution into nerve-wrapping membranes to relieve compression caused by bone or disc and to prevent inflammation.

UBE refers to a method of surgical procedure for spinal disorders by drilling two holes in the spine, about 7mm into the spine, with an ultra-high-definition endoscope in one hole, instead of a full-body anesthetic incision.
- Ultra-high-definition endoscope provides clear and wide surgical field
- All spinal diseases can be operated for safe treatment
Endoscopy. Simultaneous insertion of surgical instruments.
-Restrict the scope of surgery due to simultaneous insertion of endoscopy and surgical instruments
-Restricted use of various surgical instruments and limited surgical field of view
-Using back disks mainly, not possible for high-level surgery

Our ultimate goal is to minimize O.R. infection rate to 0%. Starting the first clean sterile operation room in Busan in 2011, we are operating the Laminar flow/Positive Pressure Surgery Room/Operation Room without wires / Low-Plasma Sterilization Machine / Low Heat Generation / Patient Temperature Maintenance System.
A device using ultrasonic waves that resects the only problematic lesion without damaging the surrounding tissue. It reduces unnecessary tissue damage, nerve damage, and vascular damage. As a result, we can expect both lesser pain and the possibility of relapse.
DNA GPS (a personalized genetic test) A simple genetic test that reveals health insights using your DNA. Both genetic and environmental factors are involved when developing a disease. Therefore, managing your environmental factors is crucial when you have a high possibility of developing a disease genetically.
