Research theme

Our fundamental policy is do the best efforts for the today's patients and research for the tomorrow's patients. Clinically, we are searching for safer and more precise surgery. We are also eager to introduce such new treatment modalities other than microsurgery such as endovascular surgery, navigation system, neuroendoscope, and stereotactic radiosurgery in close relationship with affiliated hospital. This enables us to choose best single or combined treatment modalities in each patients. We have a large series of patients with cerebrovascular disease, glioma and pituitary tumors. In the research fields, we have five groups; cerebrovascular, brain tumor, pediatric neurosurgery, functional neurosurgery, and endovascular surgery groups.
