Message to Patients

Diseases of the spine and spinal cord threaten daily life through a range of different symptoms, including numbness and muscle weakness in the hands and arms, low back pain, numbness in the feet and legs, and difficulty walking. Although surgery is a major undertaking, in most cases, symptoms are dramatically improved by the operation and hospital stay for about a week.

I have pursued minimally invasive surgery for spinal and spinal cord diseases using neurosurgical microsurgery techniques for more than 20 years. I am highly experienced in all aspects of spinal and spinal cord surgery, having already performed over 1500 operations to treat conditions including cervical spondylosis, cervical intervertebral disk hernia, lumbar spinal canal stenosis, and lumbar intervertebral disk hernia, as well as spinal tumors (both intramedullary and extramedullary) and syringomyelia.

My principle is as follows: accurately understand the patient's problem, honestly propose the appropriate treatment measure, and constantly improve surgical techniques through careful observation of the patient's postoperative course.
