Gastroenterology in South Korea features non-invasive FibroTest for liver screening
In South Korea, medical programs to fight ulcer disease are highly effective involving small doses of radiation sent through the endoscope and cutting-edge medications. Instead of liver biopsy, a blood-based patented method called FibroTest is usually applied. Liver cancer is treated with minimally invasive techniques using radiofrequency ablation and CyberKnife.
At Korean hospitals you can find liver transplant and follow-up care for less than $70,000, treatment of chronic hepatitis B for $300, and upper endoscopy to see your chance for gastric cancer for $40.
Conditions Korean gastroenterologists treat applying in-depth expertise and recently developed equipment cover:
- liver/gastric/biliary tract cancer
- liver cirrhosis
- ischemic bowel disease (IBD)
- colorectal cancer
