Our principle in medical practice is to bring the leading-edge operational skills and medical technologies to bear on those in need of care in the ever-shrinking world through our commitment to professional integrity and social responsibility thus contributing to global society at large. This philosophy, shared by our staff, has informed all aspects of our specialized orthopedic care from generation to generation. Coupled with our proven expertise in general orthopedic surgery, total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA), this will allow minimally invasive procedures to be performed in a short duration in a patient-friendly hospital environment, as well as ensure a speedy recovery, supported by devoted medical staff, in the beautiful and serene atmosphere of a unique, timber-framed recovery ward. Our place is conveniently located just a 50-minute drive from the Fukuoka International Airport.
