Why should you receive treatment at AMC Cancer Institute?

In 2006, AMC established Korea’s first multidisciplinary cancer institute, initiating its comprehensive approach to cancer treatment. A multidisciplinary clinic is a medical service where multiple specialists from diverse departments gather to provide customized treatment for a cancer patient from diagnosis to surgery. At AMC Cancer Institute, specialists in diagnostic, surgical, medical, and radiation oncology collaborate to develop individualized care plans for each patient.

The Institute has 17 sub-centers that are disease-specific and provides customized cancer treatment through its Center for Personalized Cancer Medicine.

Cancer Institute has conducted the largest number of cancer surgeries in Korea and has the highest survival rate.

The Outcomes Book of AMC Cancer Institute was prepared to provide an objective measure of the excellence of AMC Cancer Institute’s cancer treatment. It aims to improve the quality of care and establish new standards for treating cancer patients.

Typical indicators and cancer-specific indicators have been developed for the five most prevalent cancer types in South Korea: liver cancer, colorectal cancer, stomach cancer, breast cancer, and lung cancer.

The Outcomes Book also highlights AMC Cancer Institute’s distinctive features, such as multidisciplinary care, bio-resource bank, and NGS genomic testing.

AMC Cancer Institute will regularly disclose and manage cancer-specific indicators, providing the best medical care, and establishing new standards for cancer patient treatment.
