About Our Services…

Oto-rhino-laryngology (aka Ear, Nose, & Throat or ENT) is the branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the ear, nose, throat (laryngopharynx), mouth, as well as portions of the trachea and esophagus. An ENT specialist deals with all these different parts of the body because they are all closely connected, both anatomically and functionally.

Sublingual Immunotherapy

This is a completely new type of treatment that is unlike existing hay fever medications.
Conventional medications may suppress symptoms temporarily during hay fever season, but cannot alter the predisposition to hay fever. Sublingual Immunotherapy is an alternative approach to decrease pollen sensitivity.

For first time patients, this treatment is available only between June and December.
Feel free to call us if you are bothered with hay fever.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea Check (using an Apnomonitor)

Our clinic can now monitor and diagnose the degrees and causes of sleep apnea. Since patients can only be monitored while sleeping (at night), this used to require an overnight stay at the hospital. However, with advances in modern technology, patients can now be monitored in the comfort of their own home. Our clinic offers medical monitoring equipment rental services, so feel free to contact us anytime.

Laser Treatment for Allergic Rhinitis

We provide laser treatment as an alternative to medication. After injecting a local anesthetic into the nose, we focus a laser on the nasal mucosa. Unlike surgery for resection, laser treatments are painless with very little bleeding, and can be performed in just 15 minutes more or less. Contact us if you are troubled by hay fever.

Message to patients

My work has been mainly at university hospitals and major hospitals. At university hospitals, I carried out research and treatments for allergic rhinitis and chronic sinusitis. I am also interested in hearing impairments and hearing aids. I have a degree in medical consulting for hearing aids. And once a week, I provide outpatient care for vertigo patients at Showa University Fujigaoka Hospital. With 20 years of experience, I am always thinking about ways to treat each patient as if they were a family member or a friend. I want to provide friendly medical care and comfort to all.
