Department of Cardiovascular Medicine

Our medical practice is based on the philosophy of being "For the Patient" and we work diligently day and night in order to protect the lives of our patients.

Our department practices using the most advanced treatment methods. These methods cannot only be applied to ordinary internal diseases but they can also make the correct diagnoses in complex cases when a patient requires individual treatment that cannot be provided on a standardized basis.

Each and every one of our physicians is general clinicians as well as being experts in their fields. In other words, we can properly diagnose all diseases, and will provide world-class treatment, including by regenerative medicine.

All of our department's physicians apply great importance to the habit of continual learning and always approach matters with inquiring minds and the desire for deep insights. We are gentle and easy to approach, and we hope that you can feel secure in consulting us.

Reception hours

At our department, we have staffs that are specialists in ischemic heart disease, arrhythmia, heart failure, aortic disease, peripheral artery disease, and diabetes; we are thus able to deal with all heart diseases.

Main diseases and treatments

Arrhythmia (atrial fibrillation, syncope, etc.)

Diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, and various types of arrhythmia is provided. In addition to drug therapy, catheter myocardial ablations are also conducted. Implantation and management of pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, and implantable biventricular pacemakers (ventricular resynchronization therapy) in coordination with the surgery department is also conducted.

Ischemic heart disease (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, etc.)

We perform emergency treatment of myocardial infarction, coronary angioplasty, rehabilitation, and exercise therapy, exercise stress tests for diagnosis, various types of imaging diagnostics, and cardiac catheterization.

Heart failure, cardiomyopathy, valvular disease

For diagnosis and treatment of cardiomyopathy or valvular disease that causes heart failure, and, in particular for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, we conduct transluminal septal myocardial ablations. In addition to various types of drug therapy in treating heart failure, in severe cases, we conduct treatment and ventricular resynchronization therapy via auxiliary circulation devices such as artificial percutaneous heart-lung machines and mechanical hearts, and make suitable decisions regarding heart transplants, and also conduct post-transplant surgical management.

Aortic disease (aneurysm, etc.)

We conduct diagnosis and treatment of aneurysms and aortic dissection (dissociative aortic aneurysm). We also respond in emergency situations.

Lifestyle-related diseases (hypertension, diabetes, or dyslipidemia)

We treat diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, which often occur together to cause cardiovascular disease.
