Shinagawa Shishokai Hospital opened in 2013 and has people from all over the country come to be examined and treated by their expert staff of spine specialist orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and other specialist doctors. To date, the hospital’s president, Dr. Kaiji Ota, has performed approximately 5,000 surgeries, while hospital director, Dr. Naoki Kasai, and deputy director, Dr. Takeshi Umebayashi, share some 8,000 surgeries between them.
In addition, the orthopedic specialists in Tokyo are accomplished and experienced in XLIF (eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion) surgery, a very precise minimally invasive surgery technique that reduces the chance of damage to back muscles as well as bleeding (and subsequent blood transfusions) and the time required to heal (i.e. your hospital stay).
The hospital features 66 patient beds, three special rooms, 18 private rooms, and one four-person group room (women only), as well as some of the most state-of-the-art equipment in Japan. In addition to their MRI, CT-Scan, and X-ray machines, Shinagawa Shishokai Hospital boasts the country’s only G-scan and EOS imaging system machines.
With the G-scan, the orthopedic specialists in Tokyo can take pictures in an open-type MRI environment in a standing or sitting position. This means patients suffering from disc herniation and spinal canal stenosis can now be examined or scanned. While changes in a standing or sitting position can be clearly visualized and compared to each other.
The hospital’s EOS imaging system, currently considered advanced technology, is a medical imaging system that can provide frontal and lateral radiography pictures, while limiting the X-ray dose absorbed by the patient in vertical pose. 3D models can be rendered from the image data, allowing hospital doctors to extract a wide variety of highly accurate data necessary for sensitive diagnosis, which is not obtainable by traditional X-ray methods.
After surgery, the hospital has a first-class team of physiotherapists to help patients rehabilitate and recover. The hospital is also proud of their non-hospital tasting “best tasting hospital food in the world”.
With at least two English-speaking doctors on call, feel safe in the knowledge of being able to communicate with those you’re entrusting with your care. Senior consultant and American board certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Kiyoshi Kumano can be made available at anytime.
