Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady With the Lamp has been released digitally in English by Tappytoon, but has since been removed from the platform and published by Lezhin Comics instead. Tappytoon describes the story as: 

Dr. Song, the youngest professor at the leading College of Medicine in Korea, was a royal brat of a princess in her previous life. But just as she’s about to meet an untimely death over the ocean, she wakes up as Princess Elise once again?! Enlightened with the medical knowledge of a master surgeon, is this her chance to mend her past relationships and heal an ailing empire, or is fate sealed to repeat itself?
