Surgery methods include tylectomy, partial mastectomy (breast-conserving surgery), mastectomy (total resection), nipple areola preservation mastectomy, reconstructive operation after the breast cancer surgery. For treatments, which include preoperative/postoperative hormone therapy, preoperative/ postoperative chemotherapy, radiotherapy , and treatment for breast cancer metastasis or at the time of recurrence, we will work with the Radiology and the Medical Oncology.

Gynecology & Obstetrics

We have established a medical treatment system including staff and equipment and are focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of gynecological malignant tumors such as uterine cancer and ovarian cancer. It is our motto to promptly provide diagnosis and treatment to patients at their first visits to us.


  • Gynecologic malignant tumors
  • Uterine cancer
  • Ovarian cancer


  • For diagnosis and treatment for gynecologic cancers such as uterine cancer and ovarian cancer, it is quite important to provide team medicine not only by gynecologic oncologists but also with Radiologists, Pathologists, and Palliative Care Specialists as a team medicine. We also think that measures such as proper use of anticancer medication or countermeasures for side effects by teams of doctors and pharmacists are important. In addition, we cooperate with each medical department to handle patients with gynecological malignant tumors with complications such as heart disease and diabetes.

Otorhinolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery

We provide state-of-the-art medical treatment mainly for the head and neck cancer (tumor) patients.
Diseases such as chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, tonsillitis, vocal cord polyp are also treated by our doctors, who have detailed knowledge on general otorhinolaryngologic diseases.

This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a special device to remove cancer lesion that previously required an external incision from the mouth. We will, of course, also support surgery and chemoradiotherapy that involve free tissue transplantation. For sinusitis, we perform safe endoscopic surgery using navigation system.

Pain Clinic

Pain clinic has been existing as pain management specialty ever since 1976 in Kanto Teishin Hospital which is the predecessor of NTT Medical Center Tokyo. Nerve block injections make it easier for human body to move appropriately by blocking the nerves causing the pain either temporarily or on a long-term basis. Nerve block treatment has an effect on reducing painkillers, improving circulation of the sites and muscle relaxant action. Our department currently perform minimally invasive surgical treatment, hyperhidrosis treatment and treatment for vertebral compression fracture in addition to nerve block injections.


  • We treat pain of the limbs like in cervical hernia, cervical spondylosis and lumbar hernia, pain of the trunk like neck and back pain, pain related to herpes zoster, persistent postoperative pain, headaches like migraine, facial pain like trigeminal neuralgia, persistent pains of unknown cause as well as hyperhidrosis, facial spasms and problems deriving from the autonomic nerve system.


  • Nerve block using local anesthesia for many kind of pains as well as pulse radiofrequency and radiofrequency which effects last longer. Percutaneous discectomy and disc reduction through DART electrodes for cervical hernia and lumbar hernia. Dissection of nerve adhesion that may happen inside the epidural space because of prolonged lumbar pain and limbs pain. For palmar hydrosis we perform endoscopic thoracic sympathetic clipping and endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy. We give Botox injections for facial and ocular spasms and spasmodic torticollis.

Center for Preventive Medicine/Health Screening

We closely work with each clinical department of our hospital. If any illness is found in the Health Screening, you can promptly undergo a detailed examination, and treatment at our hospital. Health Screening system operated by this center is also interlinked with electric medical record that can be viewed from each clinical department in our hospital. This enables smooth information sharing and medical treatment.


  • Cancer
  • Life-style related diseases of illness


  • Specialists of our Endoscopy Center, who are the Board Certified Fellow of the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society, perform gastric cancer screening to try to detect not only very early stage of gastric and esophageal cancer, which are difficult to find by upper GI series, and also atrophic gastritis by performing test for Helicobacter Pylori . We also carry out lung cancer screening by low dose CT to reduce radiation dosage to people over 40 years old to detect lung cancer at the early stage. To ensure accuracy, two Radiologists will preform checking after the check by a physician to avoid overlook of lung cancer.
