Efforts of neurosurgery

As a neurosurgeon at the Critical Care Center, we are working to provide high-quality acute care. We provide 24-hour neurological emergency medical care with examinations and surgeries such as MRI and angiography.For cerebral infarction, we strive to restore cerebral blood flow by thrombolytic therapy in the hyperacute phase and thrombectomy therapy by endovascular treatment, and develop team medical care including rehabilitation and nutritional management from the day of onset.For subarachnoid hemorrhage, craniotomy clipping surgery and endovascular treatment are selected according to the pathology.Endovascular treatment is performed in cooperation with the Department of Neurosurgery, University of Tsukuba.Intracerebral hemorrhage is treated with minimally invasive stereotactic hematoma aspiration surgery.We are promoting seamless cooperation by sharing information and goals with local Kaifukuki rehabilitation hospitals and primary care physicians.To prevent stroke recurrence, we ask patients and their families to play a part in team medical care.

For severe brain trauma, we provide intensive care such as emergency surgery, hypothermia, and brain pressure monitoring.

As a neurosurgeon at the Ibaraki Regional Cancer Center, we are working on medical care with the goal of improving QOL.For malignant tumors, in collaboration with the University of Tsukuba, we offer treatment plans that include advanced medical treatments such as neutron capture therapy and immunotherapy.For metastatic brain tumors, we help patients make more efficient use of their time with surgery and stereotactic radiation therapy.

Spinal cord and spine diseases are central nervous system diseases like the brain.In addition to recovering and protecting nerve function, we will consider treatment methods so that long-term stable support of the spine can be obtained.

For higher brain dysfunction and eating dysfunction, we are working to improve the function in cooperation with the Rehabilitation Department.

Through these efforts, we have been certified as a training facility by the Japan Neurosurgical Society and the Japanese Society of Neuroendovascular Therapy, and as a training and teaching hospital by the Japan Stroke Society.

A word to patients

Daily management of lifestyle-related diseases such as blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, obesity, and diabetes is important for stroke prevention.In addition, if you have had a stroke, you may be able to recover brain function if you start treatment as soon as possible.A delay in starting treatment magnifies brain damage.If you get sick, call an ambulance immediately.

Many neurological diseases leave aftereffects such as movement disorders and consciousness disorders.Appropriate treatment is necessary to minimize the aftereffects as much as possible, and a wide range of measures are required, such as rehabilitation to skillfully overcome the disease, acquisition of appropriate nursing care methods, and utilization of nursing care services.In order to improve the treatment effect and improve the patient's living condition, the participation of the family in the treatment is necessary.

We also recommend that you check your own brain health by taking a brain checkup.
