Breast Surgery

●Director

  • ・For Outpatients…Reception of Outpatient Ward 1F
  • ・For Visitors………Staff Station of Sekitei Ward 6F

The specialist Breast Surgery clinic was formed in the department of surgery in February 2007. We conduct medical treatment, education and research focusing on breast cancer. As multimodality therapy has progressed, the salvage rate of the breast and axilla has been enhanced and prognosis has significantly improved. On the other hand, individualization or determining medical care depending on each feature of tumors or clinical conditions has also progressed. This has made it possible to offer strong anti-tumor effects by specifically targeted treatments as well as the avoidance of over-treatment. In our department, we set up a system for cooperation with other clinical departments in order to respond to different conditions while practicing multimodalization, individualization and advanced and less-invasive treatments. Based on such principles, we are working on the development of local and systemic therapy advancements, as well as the establishment of new medical algorithms.

●Location

  • ・For Outpatients…Reception of Outpatient Ward 1F

We are a multidisciplinary team, cooperating with specialists from the Japanese Society of Sleep Research, the Japanese Respiratory Society, and the Japanese Society of Neurology and Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (RPSGT). Polysomnography is the most reliable and commonly used diagnostic tool for sleep disorders.

Whilst there are more than one hundred types of sleep disorders the bulk of our clinical practice involves the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea syndrome (SAS). Statistics tell us that 1 in 5 adults stop or have infrequent breathing more than five times an hour during their sleep. For one person in fifteen this happens more than fifteen times an hour and necessitates medical intervention. Sleep apnea has a deleterious affects on other conditions such as cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure and diabetes. Sufferers are often tired during the day and this adversely affects their life. Our outpatient service is open everyday. Please feel free to visit us if you are snoring, have high-blood pressure, diabetes or obesity and are concerned you might have SAS. (written by Kazuo Chin, outpatient clinician at Respiratory Care / Sleep Apnea )

CPAP therapy using nasal masks is the most common therapy for OSAS patients. The above shows how your throat is during sleep.

  • a. A healthy throat (upper airway) remains open during sleep.
  • b. A OSAS patient's throat closes during sleep.
  • c. The pressure of the nasal mask keeps a OSAS patient's throat open.

CPAP is a very simple and easy devise.
