We will, of course, also support surgery and chemoradiotherapy that involve free tissue transplantation. For sinusitis, we perform safe endoscopic surgery using navigation system.


Endoscopic submucosal dissection(ESD: treatment to exfoliate cancer lesion to submucosa and make en block resection by an endoscope) for early stage of esophageal, gastric, duodenal, or colorectal cancer, percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for liver cancer (primarily liver cancer, metastatic liver cancer), and other digestive disorders are treated.

  • Breast puncture is a method to perform using ultrasound or MMG. When it is judged that surgery is necessary, we will choose a surgery method according to the disease. 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.

  • 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.


We promptly and accurately diagnose through electrocardiography, echocardiography, myocardial scintigraphy , and cardiovascular MRI/CT. We carry out many catheter treatments for angina pectoris or lower extremities artery stenosis, and catheter ablation for arrhythmia.

For catheter ablation to arrhythmia, we provide minimally invasive treatment such as using cryobaloon upon combining with state of the art mapping system.

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.
