I have a torn meniscus. I live in Cheongju. I have a dilemma. If i have surgery in Cheongju, it will happen sooner, if i go to Seoul it has been suggested that the surgeon will be of a higher skill set. I cannot return to the UK. What's the opinions of the audience?

Unless this is urgent, go to Seoul.

It sounds to me like you have a genuine medical emergency. I hope it isn't the demands of your employers which are delaying your trip to Seoul.

I suggest you seek the opinions of more totally unqualified anonymous posters!

There are bad surgeons in Seoul too.

I would recommend going to the UK.

If you come to Suwon, Ill perform the surgery free of charge. I've always wanted to surgery and I saw a pretty cool episode on Nat Geo the other day regarding knee operations so I think I have a good idea what to do. Please bring your own anesthetic.

My co-worker had an ACL repair done at the "now sports clinic". They have branches in numerous cities in Korea.

The MRI, surgery, hospital stay, post surgery visits and physio afterward cost him 2 million and he was very happy with the process.

Go to Seoul; Samsung Hospital. It's the best hospital in Korea, affiliated with hospitals in the American system.
