As a long time clinician, I am passionate about saving the lives of people suffering from disease and in preventing the recurrence of illnesses, as well as the clinical research needed to do so.

With the rapid development of modern medicine in the 20th century, medical treatment based on organ systems and diseases were brought forth. However, in the 21st century, as the relationship between disease and genetics began to be elucidated, treatments based upon genetic mutations, that is, personalized medicine (precision medicine) began to spread. Hereafter it will be natural for us to study genes and find a precise treatment for diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and cancer.

We have been implementing personalized medicine for more than a decade, incorporating precision blood tests such as genetic testing and liquid biopsy. Particularly in cancer, examining patients’ cancers at the genetic level, helps diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, management, and prevention. Emphasis is placed on patient safety, the least possible side effects, and maintaining quality of life. Our focus is on treating at the cellular, molecular and genetic level, using immunotherapy and gene therapy.

We also recognize the importance of preventive medicine from the treatment experience of cancer survivors. We strive to prevent the recurrence of cancer, as well as various illnesses, including those caused by the effects of chemotherapy, such as heart disease. In currently healthy individuals, we will also determine the risk of cancer and dementia, and will actively strive to prevent them from developing disease.

My motto is “There are no boundaries in health care”.
The door to our clinic is wide open. Please feel free to knock on our door.
