South Korea Surgical Procedure Volume 2011
Report #CS261SK -
February 2013


South Korea Surgical Procedure Volumes: An estimated 3.7 million surgical procedures were performed in 2010 with five year growth of 7.0% per annum forecasted.

Home to a population of nearly 50 million, South Korea enjoyed one of the world's fastest growing economies from the 1960s to the 1990s, while industrializing rapidly on the strength of the manufacturing, construction, electronics and telecommunications industries. A member of both the G-20 and OECD groups, South Korea's economy is now ranked 15th in the world in terms of GDP with a steady growth rate of 2-3% during 2011/2012, though this is forecast to increase over the next few years.

With total healthcare expenditure amounting to approximately 6% of GDP, South Korea has compulsory universal health insurance covering all citizens under the National Health Insurance (NHI) system. A further Medical Aid Programme extends coverage for poor households and children under the age of 18, as well as for rare and chronic diseases. Together these insurance programmes enable affordable access to healthcare for the entire South Korean population which stands in contrast to developing Asian countries like China and India that have yet to achieve universal health coverage.

Besides relative affluence and access to care, demand for surgical procedures in South Korea is driven by an aging population. The country has one of the lowest birth rates in the world and a population that is rapidly growing older; 17% of all people were aged 60 and over in 2012 and this proportion will reach 39% by 2050. This demographic change contributes to high surgical volumes for age-related diseases like osteoporosis and the increasing demand for medical check-ups which involve some general surgical procedures such as colonoscopy.

An estimated 3.7 mil surgical procedures were performed in South Korea in 2011. Obstetrics and gynecology, general and aesthetic surgeries form the largest groups of procedures performed; orthopedic and cardiovascular procedures are also numerous. Overall surgical procedure volume growth is estimated at 7% annually, and is driven largely by growth in the aesthetic, cardiovascular and general surgical procedures.
