Outline

Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary-tract system and the male reproductive organs. Our mission is to establish and provide the best urological care to all patients in the super aging society which all over the world is facing. Besides offering urological practices of the international standard, we are making a continuous effort to improve daily practices based on the evidences of the clinical and translational research which we commit under the concept of “Bed to Bench, Feedback to Bed”.

Research

Clinical Research
1. A minimally invasive surgery, minimum-incision endoscopic urological surgery
2. Optimal MRI-ultrasonography fusion prostate needle biopsy

4. Minimum-incision endoscopic clampless partial nephrectomy against kidney cancer
5. Focal brachytherapy against localized prostate cancer
6. Diffusion-weighed MRI to diagnosis, assessment of therapeutic effects and monitoring of relapse in urological cancer
7. Whole body MRI using DWIBS technique
8. Imaging diagnosis for prostate and kidney cancers using deep learning
9. Serum C-reactive protein as a prognostic biomarker of urological malignancies
10. Prognostic prediction model for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer
11. Renal function after kidney cancer surgery
12. Prevention of postoperative inguinal hernia after robot assisted radical prostatectomy

Translational Research
1. Biomarker in bladder preservation therapy using chemoradiotherapy
2. Overcoming therapeutic resistance to immune-check point inhibitors for urological cancers

Lectures & Courses

Our top priority is to establish the best urological practice in the super aging society which all over the world is facing. We are committed to offering educational programs to facilitate the development of outstanding academic urologists of the next generation. We believe that one of our missions is to educate students, residents and fellows in the art and science of urology and thereby to train the future leaders in the field. The continuous commitment to clinical and translational research is reflected to publications in international journals, presentations at international meetings and awards.

Clinical Performances

Our mission is to provide the best urological care to all patients. Besides offering urological practices of the international standard including robot-assisted surgery and laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy, we are making a continuous effort to improve daily practices. To realize the mission, we have been developing various procedures with high quality and affordable cost.
1. Minimum-incision endoscopic urological surgery which can be applied to most of patients with urological tumors
2. Tetra-modal bladder sparing treatment consisting of transurethral resection of bladder tumor, low-dose chemoradiotherapy and partial cystectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection
3. Clampless partial nephrectomy
4. Focal brachytherapy
5. Prediction model of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer
6. Diagnostic model for small renal masses
7. Clinical implication of diffusion-weighted MRI
