Division of Obstetrics

Our division is dedicated to providing prenatal care and delivery services to women undergoing pregnancy complications such as preterm delivery and preeclampsia. We also provide first-rate prenatal care to women who have overcome serious diseases in childhood. As part of our mission, we also aim to make an important contribution to regional obstetrical emergency care and clinical research.

Medical services

Our division is composed of nine attending staff members, 11 fellows and five residents.Attending staff and fellows are all certified by the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology. We cooperate with other medical divisions in our center to provide appropriate prenatal care and delivery management to specific patients, including patients undergoing complications related to fetal and maternal diseases.

Diagnosis and treatment policy

Our policy of prenatal care is essentially based on worldwide medical evidence. For women diagnosed with rare diseases or conditions, we thoroughly assess evidence-based systematic reviews and discuss best management and practice with doctors from other divisions.
