Alleviating Pain and Distress of Patients and Families – Palliative Care Center Opens –
In Obstetrics & Gynecology, our objective is to treat patients based on clinical evidence. We manage pregnancy complications and provide fetal diagnosis/treatment from an interdisciplinary perspective in cooperation with the doctors from Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Pediatric Surgery and the Department of Genetic Counseling. A full supply of transfusion blood is also available. We have also provided emergency treatment to many pregnant women with placental diseases (placenta previa/accrete) and massive postpartum haemorrhage.
We have been treating patients with cervical cancer by combining surgical procedures and concurrent chemoradiotherapy, and has achieved a high survival rate. We have treated patients with ovarian cancer using a combination of thorough vigorous debulking surgery and chemotherapy, and achieved a high 5-year survival rate. We do risk classifications of patients with uterine cancer based on the pathological findings during procedures, in order to conduct as minimally invasive surgery as possible. We apply fertility preservation therapy to patients with various types of cancers and provide outpatient chemotherapy.
As part of fertility treatment, we efficiently perform artificial insemination and laparoscopy. IVF and ICSI are provided in collaboration with other institutions. In addition, the latest medical care services are provided to treat uterine myoma, including laparoscopic surgery and embolotherapy.
