Division of Reproductive Medicine and Maternal Care / Immunology

While there are only a few hospitals specializing in infertility in Japan, our division has independently conducted research on infertility since its establishment in 2002. We comprehensively support research into the causes of infertility and the development of fertility treatments, as well as manage the care and treatment for women from the establishment of pregnancy to delivery in collaboration with the obstetrics, fetal diagnosis, infertility diagnosis, maternal medicine and clinical genetics departments. In 2013, we achieved a live birth rate of 81.5%.

Medical services

Specialist physicians from the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Japan Society of Perinatal and Neonatal Medicine provide medical examinations at our specialized outpatient department four times a week. We offer fertility testing and review test items annually, and revise them as required by taking into account the latest findings.

Diagnosis and treatment policy

We make decisions for each patient separately based on medical evidence in consideration of
the needs of patients and their families. In the event coagulation factor disorder or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is diagnosed, we provide an antithrombotic regimen that includes oral administration of aspirin or heparin injection. Medical care is provided in close cooperation with the departments of
obstetrics, fetal diagnosis, infertility diagnosis, maternal medicine and clinical genetics. In cooperation with other departments, we manage heparin treatment after the establishment of pregnancy, which is important for infertility medical care. The division also manages surgery in the event of miscarriage, and the diagnosis and management of stillbirth.
