We provide treatment to improve quality of life.Please consult us for intractable wounds.

The Reconstructive/Plastic Surgery Division is a part of surgical medicine treating various tissue deficit and deformation such as burn, reconstruction after removal of malignant tumor, trauma, scar contracture, intractable ulcer, bedsore, various congenital anomaly, and benign tumor from esthetic and functional perspectives. We try to provide high-quality medicine so that the patient can "live better."
