We provide high-level and advanced surgical medicine while ensuring safety

In a comfortable environment, we provide high-level and advanced surgicalmedicine required for university hospitals while ensuring utmost safety.

Medical Care System

We have increased the number of operation room up to 27 rooms since January, 2018 and perform 15 or more surgeries under general anesthesia and several surgeries under local anesthesia simultaneously almost all the time from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Scope of Medical Services

We perform almost all types of surgery, including cardac transplantation, liver transplantation, implantation of ventricular assist devices, da Vinci surgery, and awake craniotomy. In addition to performing sophisticated and advanced surgeries, which is a characteristic of university hospitals, we have recently been performing an increasing number of surgeries for more common conditions, meeting the needs of the community.

Strong Fields

Our department is equipped with a facility where MRI can be performed to detect remnant tumor during surgery, a facility with which radiation can be administered in the operating room during surgery, and so forth. In addition, our department has multiple operating rooms where various endoscopic surgeries, which have been increasing recently, and robot-assisted surgeries can be performed.

Clinical Results

We performed 9,265 surgeries in the fiscal year of 2018, 8,649 in the fiscal year of 2019, and 7,839 in the fiscal year of 2020 (under the he influence of COVID-19)

Advanced Medicine and Research

Our facilities for intraoperative MRI scanning and intraoperative radiation are outstanding. The endoscopic surgery assisting robot "da Vinci" was introduced in March 2010. This robot is now used in the Urology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Gastroenterological Surgery, and Thoracic Surgery Departments.
