  • Minimizing of stroke sequela
  • Restoration of routine function of stroke patient

3. Oriental Medicinal Herbs Therapy


Oriental medicinal herbs therapy for stroke patient mainly consists of three types. First therapy type is to determine the cause based on the patient symptoms, secondly medicine prescription depending on minor or severe degree of stroke. Third type is to prescript according to Sasang Constitutional Theory This therapy selects and approaches through most proper therapy type for patient status based on diagnosis by specialist.

Effect of Oriental medicinal herbs

  • Oriental medicinal herbs increase vascular circulation and improve neurological defects including motor paralysis and sensory disturbance.
  • Recent studies have demonstrated the effects of oriental herbal medicine for prevention of stroke. This suggests that oriental medicinal herbs have effects to reduce risk factors of cerebrovascular disorder (hypotensive effect, improvement of lipid metabolism, anti-platelet effect).
  • Recently, Japan Neurosurgery Association has reported that specific oriental herbal medicine was effective to hematoma absorption due to intracranial hemorrhage. This study demonstrated that oriental medicinal herbs were helpful to hematoma absorption and patients' recovery.
  • Oriental herbal medicine is effective on the various complication and accompanying manifestations of stroke patients. Ex) Numbness and pain, headache, fever, voiding dysfunction, gastrointestinal disturbance, hiccup, insomnia, vascular dementia, constipation.

Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment

  • Acupuncture is effective on specially hemiparesis, stiffness, edema of affected side.
  • Electro-acupuncture (electro-acupuncture stimulation) treatment facilitates recovery of motor function.
  • Electro-acupuncture treatment reduces stiffness of patients with upper and lower limb stiffness.
  • Moxibustion treatment reduces edema due to stroke and enhances recovery of motor and function.
  • When electro-acupuncture was performed at specific acupoints, increase of cerebrovascular circulation was observed using MRI(fMRI).
  • Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment is beneficial to language and swallow disorder.
  • Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment is beneficial to voiding dysfunction of stroke patients.
  • Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment is beneficial to the various complications and accompanying manifestations including headache and painful limbs.


  • Various pharmacopuncture procedures reduce symptoms of stroke patients such as pain, dumbness.
  • Cervi Pantotrichum Cornu and Cultivated Wild Ginseng pharmacopuncture improve chronic fatigue of stroke patients.

NIH conducts real-time cooperative treatment between western and oriental medicine specialists and one of a few hospitals which are capable of general hospital scale cooperative treatment. Therefore, NIH systems can deliver integrated treatment combined with western and oriental medicine which is ideal for each patient. Main cooperative treatments are following.

4. Integrated Treatment of Stroke

  • Cooperative treatment with neurosurgery: provides necessary medical treatment including fluid therapy and anticoagulant administration for prevention of thrombosis formation which needs at early stage of stroke, and aspirin administration recognizing only well-known way which is effective on improvement of cerebral infarction and preventive effect.
  • Cooperative treatment with rehabilitation medicine. Rehabilitation for stroke patients is crucial for early recovery of disease and minimization of sequela. For these, patients can receive proper rehabilitation treatment through cooperative treatment with rehabilitation medicine which is a part of western medicine.
  • Cooperative treatment with cardiology. For stroke occurs secondarily due to dysfunction of heart in most cases, cooperative treatment with cardiology provides proper diagnosis and medication for hear disease to prevent stroke.
  • Other cooperative treatment. A number of the applicable divisions of western medicine perform cooperative treatments for the various complications and accompanying manifestations of stroke patients.

Artificial Joint Clinic

Joint Replacement Surgery is mainly performed at hip and knee joint for who dose not respond to pharmacotherapy and physical therapy, to replace joint with artificial joint which is manufactured with advanced alloy and ceramic materials for the purpose of eliminating pain, improving joint motion and gait and recovering routine function of patient.

  • Computer Navigated Joint Replacement Surgery

omputer Navigated Joint Replacement Surgery is the novel method of joint replacement surgery applying the satellite GPS function and guiding location of artificial joint employs the same way that car navigation system guides to destination to enable more accurate surgery.

Moreover, Computer Navigated Surgery predicts the location of patients' joint, the balances between muscle and tendon, the range of motion of artificial joint as well as traces the location of artificial joint, so that medical team enables to perform more accurate artificial joint replacement.

Advantages of Computer Navigated Surgery

  • Accurate surgical procedure using computer.
  • Performing at the near normal angle of knee joint, elongating lifetime of artificial joint.
  • Contrasting with the previous methods, surgical instruments are not introduced in bone marrow cavity, it reduces embolism.
  • Accurate insertion of artificial joint.
  • Shortening of the admission and recovery period.
  • Less incision size than previous methods.
  • Conserving normal structure, joint motion is close to the normal range.
  • Minimizing bleeding during surgery.

Knee Joint Replacement

Knee Joint Replacement is to perform resection of wear lesions of femur and tibia and then to replace articular surface with metal insertion and insert artificial cartilage for facilitating early gait and normal joint motion and eliminating pain causing degenerative arthritis in patient with arthritis. Disease considering Knee Joint Replacement: Rheumatoid Arthritis / Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head / Femoral Degenerative Arthritis / Elderly Femoral Neck and Trochanteric Fracture

Hip Joint Replacement

Hip Joint Replacement is to perform resection of damaged femoral head or tibial lesions and then to insert artificial joint for facilitating early gait and normal joint motion in patient with femoral neck fracture or arthritis. Disease considering Hip Joint Replacement: Rheumatoid Arthritis / Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head / Femoral Degenerative Arthritis / Elderly Femoral Neck and Trochanteric Fracture

Shoulder Joint Replacement

Shoulder Joint Replacement can be considered especially when shoulder joint due to severe damage was deformed and could not apply conservative treatment. This surgery is to remove severely damaged and nearly non-functional joint and then to replace with specially manufactured artificial joint.

Active physical therapy following surgery can be helpful to recover the normal range of motion and function of joint. Disease considering Shoulder Joint Replacement: Severe Complex Fracture of Radius / Rheumatoid Arthritis / Rotator Cuff Full Thickness Tear / Rotator Cuff Arthropathy / Avascular Necrosis

Arthroscopy Clinic


Minimizing surgical procedure and maximizing effect, arthroscopy is the causal treatment to stimulate regeneration of cartilage using restoration power of human body. Arthroscopy applies same theory with well-known gasgastroscopy and is used to diagnose and treat injury of the shoulder, knee and tarsal joint through direct observation with arthroscopy. 2~3 holes less than 1 cm in size are made at the affected joint lesions and arthroscopy and surgical instruments 2~5 mm in diameter are inserted into the joint, observing and performing procedure directly through monitor.

Spine Center takes pride in the rich clinical experiences and successful surgical performance. From surgical and non-surgical therapy to rehabilitation therapy, we give back right posture. 

Percutaneous Vertebroplasty

  • What is Percutaneous Vertebroplasty?: Percutaneous vertebroplasty is performed in patients with compression fracture. Compared to traditional procedure which makes incision in the skin under the general anesthesia, during this procedure, artificial bon components are injected with a biopsy needle penetrating skin into vertebra that provides stabilization of fractured bone under the local anesthesia. .
  • Characteristics: The most prevalent fracture due to osteoporosis is pressure fracture which causes a sharp pain at flank and back, especially becomes severe when one in supine position tries to turn toward side or lift up body. Also, life-threatening complications such as pneumonia and septicemia can be resulted from.
  • Pathogenesis: Osteoporosis is especially problematic among women after menopause. Prevalence of osteoporosis significantly increases in late 50 year old. Osteoporosis is the most representative elderly disorder which 80% of elderly populations in 70~80 year old have suffered and bone density due to calcium loss leads to fractures of bone even with minor impingement.
  • Treatment Methods: For vertebroplasty, gel-type bone enhancements are injected into the fractured vertebra to generate artificial bone. With 3~5 hours of bed rest after injection, patient can move freely and be discharged from the hospital after 1~2 days. Procedure is performed under the local anesthesia that can be applied to the patients with hypertension and diabetes. Anyone who can tolerate in prone position for 1 hour can be treated.
  • Effectiveness: This procedure treats nerves effectively through heat at high temperature generated by artificial bone components. With 1 day of bed rest after injection, patient can move freely and be discharged from the hospital going back to the daily activity after 1~2 days.
  • Advantages: The cost of vertebroplasty is half of that of the traditional procedure and can be finished within 30 minutes. Also, performing in local anesthesia eliminates the needs of additional visit after surgery.

Radiofrequency Ablation

  • Radiofrequency ablation: In radiofrequency ablation, catheters attached with electronic leads are inserted through fine needle holes at problematic discs and heat of 65~90 ℃ is generated which destroys nerves and vessels causing pain to result in the transformation of discs to change their shapes.
  • Characteristics: Most important characteristic of radiofrequency ablation is the ability that determines the right problematic disc correctly. Therefore, this procedure is performed using auto positioning system and endoscopy which guide injection needle to the disc.
  • Pathogenesis: Intervertebral discs act as shock absorber between adjacent vertebrae in the spine and consist of strong fibrocartilage. However, wear or tear of intervertebral disc over the time leads to chronic lumbar pain.
  • Procedure: This procedure uses high frequency similar with hepatic cancer, which lead-attached needles is placed inside vertebral discs through the vertebral muscle. This causes generation of radiofrequency that shrink discs and strengthens fibercartilage of discs. This tissue extrudes outside between adjacent vertebras and makes disc applying pressure to nerve to shrink and prevent reccurence.
  • Advantages: Procedure can be completed within 15 minutes under the local anesthesia, so that it is recommended to elderly patients. Also, Radiofrequency temperature is low to minimize the damage to the adjacent tissue and to enable accurate procedure. In some clinical study in America, this procedure achieved 81% of treatment effectiveness.

4. Direct sampling and immediate use without culture period when needed. 

Stem Cell Treatment for Myocardial Infarction

Myocardial infarction is heart disease that coronary artery supplying blood flow to myocardium is obstructed and mainly due to transition of narrowing to obstruction of vessels. Then myocardium is lost functions and heart rate become irregular. Furthermore, arrhythmia becomes developed and finally is in cardiac shock that heart beat stops.

Recently, emergent angiography and vasculoplasty, stent implantation have improved the patients outcome, however, further complications can be developed for damaged myocardium is not regenerated. For now, stem cells are injected into ther infarcted vessel that regenerate myocardial necrosis and recover health condition so that development of complications can be reduced. This method is only treatment which completed world first commercial and safety evaluation and gives hope to patients with myocardium infarction.

Characteristic of Stem Cell

1. MFDS (Ministry of Food and Drug Safety)-certified world first stem cell treatment. Regenerating damaged myocardium, mitigating a number of complications of myocardial necrosis due to myocardial infacrtion.

2. Stem cell is isolated from bone marrow and cultured for 3~4 weeks to stem cell treatments followed by reintroducing by injection. 

3. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell is used as adult stem cell resolving ethical issue and securing stabilization.

4. Endocrine, vascular and incurable diseases including stroke, spine injury, hepatic disease, multiply system atrophy, diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, renal disease and impotence are used for treatment by off the label according to specialist.

NIH Stem Cell Center has committed to research and treatment to give hope and well-being for patients suffering from incurable disease.

At this time, disc disease can be treated with moxibustion that eliminates cold energy in the body system and transfers heat to adjacent tissues.

Integrated Functional Center

Integrated functional medical care center overcoming cancers. When immune function of body is decreased, diseases can develop. Integrated functional medicine is medical system that determines the potential to develop disease in Grey Zone (middle of point between normal and disease conditions) in advance and analyses and treats systemic causes of disease based on the investigation on nutrition, physiology and chemistry which are the basic components of the body.

Integrated functional medical care is required at following cases:

  • When diagnosis and treatment is not proper due to idiopathic symptoms
  • Considering evidently that there is certain disease, but diagnosis can not be elucidated.
  • When neurological disorders are diagnosed or are referred to the division of psychiatry for no abnormal findings in examinations.
  • Complicate chronic disease
  • Original health examination in the terms of the early detection (cancer, metabolic syndrome, auto-immune disease).

Target Symptoms and Diseases

1. Cancer: Prevention and treatment with supplementary alternative therapy

2. Incurable disease: Management of patients before and after anticancer treatment (surgery, anticancer chemotherapy, radiotherapy), degenerative neurological disease (dementia, Parkinson disease).

3. Neurological disease: Emotional disturbance (anxiety and depression), autism, AHDA

4. Women disease: Menopausal transition and menopause, chronic pelvic pain and other pains not responds to traditional treatment, menstrual irregularity, cold hypersensitivity in hands and feet, thyroid and hormone imbalance.

Laser surgery that can go back normal daily activities just after procedure. Causes of Varicose Vein:

1. Genetic factor: Incidence is high when there is family history.

2. Job: Especially prevalent in people with standing job for long time.

3. Age: Incidence of varicose vein is increased with aging.

4. Obesity: Especially prevalent in over weight and exercise insufficiency.

5. Pregnancy: During pregnancy, vessels are dilated due to hormone change, increased systemic fluid volume, as well as enlarged uterus applying pressure on vein is one of the causes of varicose vein.

6. Birth control pill: Taking birth control pill for longer period.

Treatments of Varicose Vein

1. Conservative therapy(Medical compression stocking) : Medical compression stocking: Compression stocking strengthens lower muscle which is crucial for vein circulation to facilitate blood circulation. 

2. Pharmacotherapy: Improve circulation of vein and lymphatic vessel to mitigate a number of symptoms with various medications. 

3. Partial phlebotomy: This surgery makes small 2~3 mm incisions in the skin overlying the severely dilated and turbulent veins. Usually, this method is used for treatment under the knee joint and simple under the local anesthesia. 

4. Sclerotherapy: Sclerotherapy is procedure that sclerosants are injected into the vessels, which induce injury of endothelium of vessels and make them shrink. Hardened vessels get to be absorbed and disappeared as time goes by. This is effective on treatment of bluish and reddish spider veins. 

5. Varicose vein causal surgery: This surgery is most effective with lowest recurrence on trucal varicose vein. This method eliminates stiffness of legs and residual veins, so that side effects like post-surgery pigmentation dose not appear.

6. Endovenous laser treatment: Endovenous laser treatment is the most recently developed treatments, and treats varicose veins using an optical fiber that is inserted into the vein to be treated, and laser light shines into the interior of the vein. This causes the vein to be damaged and contract, and obstruct backward flow of the veins. (Optical fiber has fine and precise microstructure like a hair).

Advantages of Laser Treatment

1. Almost no side effects.

2. No pain.

3. Short procedure time.

4. Can go back normal daily activities just after procedure.


History of diseases began with that of humanity. Humanity has suffered from tremendous number of diseases. We have looked for effective treatment medicines and methods continually to beat diseases and are also now. However, we are suffering from diseases of unknown causes and yet we does not have any treatments. These are called incurable diseases. 

Various infectious disease vaccines, new drugs and medical equipments were developed thanks for advanced technology; however, modern medicine is reaching the limits. Cancer, Parkinson disease, epilepsy, allergic skin disease, atopic dermatitis, degenerative disease, asthma, bronchiectasis, allergic rhinitis, infertility, menorrhalgia, spontaneous abortion, uterine bleeding, allopecia, Hwa-Byung, neuropsychiatric disease, headache, dyspepsia, functional disease and many other diseases can not be solved with modern medicine. 

These diseases that can not be treated with modern medicine are treating with combination of oriental medicine and integrated functional medicine including acupuncture, moxibustion, oriental cupping, and oriental medicinal herbs. NIH is leading hospital in Korean oriental medicine with the history which has treated a lot of patients with incurable disease so far.

Treatment of Incurable Disease: Case study 

1. Skin disease (30 yr, female)

Atopic dermatitis was developed before 13 years and became inducing serious pruritis that could not take cloths or go outside before 3 years. Insomnia due to serious pruritis. She was suffering from the discharge running all over the body, so she had to peel off keratinized cuticles continuously. Not respond to the dermatology clinic. She complaints attempting suicide for long pain. For 1 month taking of oriental medicinal herbs, discharge and pruritis become disappeared, and she sleeps well at night and can perform normal daily activities.

2. Cerebral infarction (43 yr, female)

Left upper and lower paralysis due to cerebral infarction were treated for 80 days in other general hospital, and then visited to NIH. Performed combination therapy with acupuncture, moxibustion, oriental medicinal herb and rehabilitation therapy. 2 month later from starting of inpatient treatment, she could stand and walk holding safety side rail of the wall.

After 3 months, she could move around alone with support and arm, leg, dysarthria were improved.

3. Systemic skin purpura (45 yr, male)

Symptoms including edema, keratinization, pruritis, jaundice, hepatitis were treated inpatient in other general hospital for 15 days but got worse, and then visited NIH. Stop taking all of western medicine and start acupuncture and prescription of oriental medicinal herbs. At 7 days, edema was disappeared and reduced 12 kg of weight that could be considered as improvement of conditions. Also, keratinized cuticles were almost disappeared and albumin level returned back normal value.

4. Hyun-Min (5 yr, male)

He was premature infant and was suffered from the consistent pain and crying due to convulsive epilepsy and could not support head position.

Weight was 6.5 kg at that time, considering absolute diet and sleep deprivation. After 50 days therapy with acupuncture, moxibustion, oriental medicinal herb, epilepsy symptoms were significantly decreased that improved night sleep condition, reduced crying and made easier to ejaculate sputum or cough. Weight gain due to increased diet size.

After 2 months treatment, diet size and sleep time returned back to normal conditions. Epileptic convulsion was disappeared and weight gained to 10 kg.
