Deficiency of the esophagus, deficiency of the bronchi, tracheostenosis, tracheocutaneous fistula, etc., caused by head and neck cancer operations, breast defects caused by breast cancer operations, abdominal hernia, dead space after removal of pelvic viscera, and rectovaginal fistula, all of which are treated at the request of other clinical sections.


Among our originally-improved common treatments, the following surgical operations have been reported in U.S. and European specialty journals: thyroid ophthalmopathy, breast defects caused by breast cancer operations, gynecomastia, facial paralysis, pharyngostenosis caused by head and neck cancer operations, congenital peritoneal rupture, tracheocutaneous fistula, rectovaginal fistula, hypodactyly, syndactyly, and malignant melanoma.
Our mission is to strive to provide individual patients reliably and efficiently with the most appropriate medical care services without settling for conventional common surgical operations as they are.
