We do our best so that children get well.

We deal with all pediatric nervous diseases, both acute and chronic. We also provide advanced medicine for intractable neurological diseases and support transition to home care for seriously disabled children. We try to provide the very best medicine always together with patients and their families. We are building a support network with local medical facilities and health/welfare/educational organizations to support local people involved in the mental issues of children, through the Child Psychosomatic Center Promotion Office.
