    I’m the chaplain and English language interpreter of Gipum Hospital in Seoul Korea. You may say, “It’s too good to be true,” but it is true. The above Koreaherniaman, whom I took care of from the first call to discharge, is an American English teacher who is invited by the Korean Gov’t for English education for Korean students. Therefore he is on National Health Insurance for which his school boss pays the insurance premium. Go to the following site:…ia-center.html You’ll see the detail of the hernia repair by Dr. Kang and the cost. Let me tell you, if you are on Korean National Health Insurance, for hernia reapir for one side the total medical cost you pay from 410,000won – 820,000won, as of Nov 2016, now slightly more than that, equivalent to 370usd – 740usd, for both sides from 600,000won – 1,140,000won (540usd – 1,000usd). But if you do not have the insurance you pay 2,700usd through 3,600usd, still amazingly low, compared to the cost in USA or any other country.

    Well, sooner or later, Dr. Kang will write a paper about his surgery method and possibly post videos
