We specialize in the treatment of conditions such as musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limbs including the shoulder girdle and hands, injury, nerve paralysis, circulatory disorders, and congenital malformations.


Medical Care System

Six doctors who specialize in diseases and injuries of the upper limbs provide medical care in the specialized outpatient clinic five days a week and perform about 400 surgeries a year. While holding conferences with doctors, four occupational therapists perform post-treatment adapted to each patient.
