ID Hospital (Hangul: 아이디병원) located in Seoul, South Korea is widely recognized throughout Asia for being the leading hospital for facial bone surgery. Dr. Park Sang Hoon, a pioneer in the field of facial bone surgery and double jaw surgery, is the founder and Chief Surgeon of ID Hospital. He started his own private plastic surgery hospital back in 2004 with the name “Dr. Park Sang Hoon, Facial Bone Surgery Clinic” (presently known as ID Hospital) and began performing double jaw surgery aiming to improve the functional and aesthetic aspects for individuals.
Dr. Park was the first to perform the double jaw surgery in his private plastic surgery clinic in South Korea. Prior to this, orthognathic surgery was performed only at general hospitals. He also developed a wide array of techniques to greatly improve the orthognathic and facial bone contouring surgery techniques. Dr. Park was the first to innovate the “No-tie Double Jaw Surgery”, which eliminated the jaw tying process after surgery. The upper and lower jaw (maxilla and mandible) used to be tied with rubber bands or wires in order to adjust the postoperative occlusion, resulting in patients having great difficulties in breathing and drinking/eating. However, since he introduced the new method omitting the tying process, the recovery period was shortened while also increasing the patient’s comfort level exponentially. To date, Dr. Park Sang Hoon has performed double jaw surgery to 3,257 patients and face bone contouring surgery to 8,509 patients according to the record from 2011 to 2019.
ID Hospital also operates a dermatology clinic, a dental clinic and their skin care brand, known as ID PLACOSMETICS. ID Hospital also has overseas branches in Thailand (Bangkok), Indonesia (Jakarta, Surabaya) and Japan (Ginza).
