We make efforts to provide optimum treatment based on global standard therapy and the most advanced techniques that are only possible in university hospitals. In addition, we actively use a clinical path to ensure efficiency and equalization of treatment.

Breast cancer, thyroid cancer, Cushing's syndrome, primary hyperaldosteronism, pheochromocytoma, adrenal cancer, adrenal tumor, primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism, and multiple endocrine neoplasia.

Strong Fields

For breast cancer, we perform a high level of diagnostic imaging, surgical treatment, and drug therapy in cooperation with specialists of many fields, which is only possible in university hospitals. We have performed an outstanding number of total thyroidectomies for thyroid cancer and laparoscopic surgeries for adrenal tumors in Japan.

We perform a mammotome biopsy, which is a minimally invasive mammary gland biopsy, three or more times a week.
