Gynecology & Obstetrics

Gynecology & Obstetrics

(1) Overview

We treat a wide range of diseases unique to women, from benign diseases such as uterine fibroid and ovarian cyst, to more life threatening diseases such as cancers including cervical cancer, uterine body cancer and ovarian cancer. We also investigate and treat reproductive issues such as perimenopausal issues.

Our hospital is currently designated as a Core Cancer Treatment Hospital by Tokyo Metropolitan Government and we are proud to be able to contribute to the health of our local community in this way. This means that we have an established medical health system in place including staffing and facilities, in order to adequately treat cancers such as uterine cancer and ovarian cancer. We strive to promptly respond to our patient’s needs from the first consultation, through diagnosis and treatment.

In fall 2017, we have renovated the Gynecology & Obstetrics ward and created a new Obstetrics ward. By moving our Obstetric outpatient onto the same floor as our Obstetric ward, we hope to be able to improve the quality of our services and increase capacity for deliveries further.

Please note that we do not currently manage infertility issue at present.

(2) Policy

We Strive to Protect Your Safety and Comfort During Your Pregnancy

All of our deliveries are currently performed in the comfort of private LDR rooms (Labor, Delivery, and Recovery). We understand the need of the many expectant mothers and we are always supportive of the partner’s presence at delivery, and for mothers to sleep with the baby after birth whenever appropriate.

All of our newborns are managed by our pediatricians immediately after birth. Our anesthesiology specialist are responsible for carrying out anesthesia required for caesarean sections and we believe that we are able to manage any irregularities during deliveries.

We have a well established midwifery outpatient clinic since 2007 and we offer mother classes (childbirth education), parents’ classes and maternity yoga for all expectant mothers.

We Value Teamwork in Treating Gynecological Cancer

In order to optimize treatment of our gynecological cancers, it is extremely important to provide team medical care in collaboration with urologists, colorectal surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, as well as palliative care teams. Many of our cancer patients often require anticancer drugs, hence we take appropriate measures to address side effects of the medications through the help of a team consisting of doctors and pharmacists. In addition, we work proactively with other departments to treat patients with gynecological malignancies as our patients often have other co-existing conditions such as heart disease or diabetes.

We often perform Robot- assisted Surgeries in order to reduce the burden of the surgery post operatively and to ensure safety.

(3) Our Strengths

We Provide Paternity Childcare Plan

We provide two days of tutorial sessions to our expectant fathers. This includes teaching by our midwives about baby bathing, baby formula milk preparation and child care experiences.
