Fukuoka Sanno Hospital

Treatment Methods (Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgery for Cancer of the Digestive System. Catheter Ablation for Arrhythmia, etc.)

We proactively perform endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery mainly to treat cancer of the digestive system and breast cancer. These treatment methods are minimally invasive and require advanced procedures.

For the treatment of arrhythmia, we conduct a range of advanced treatments including catheter ablation, in which the abnormal pathway is cauterized using a catheter.

The backbone of our advanced medical care is our examination and diagnosis system, which consists of advanced medical devices such as 3.0 and 1.5-tesla MRI scanners, t64-row multidetector CT scanners, PET-CT scanners, and SPECT scanners.

Features of Our Hospital

Our hospital places a particular focus on advanced medical approaches. At our Digestive Disease Center, the departments of Gastroenterological Medicine and Digestive Surgery are collaborating in the early discovery and treatment of benign diseases such as gallbladder disease, pancreatic disease, ileus and hernia, as well as malignancies such as colon cancer, stomach cancer and breast cancer We have operating rooms to perform endoscopic surgery and use a movable trolley-type video system for endoscopic surgery, an operating environment integration system, and a high-definition endoscopy system. We endeavor to promote greater safety and reliability in our operations by using a video distribution system for electronic health records, which allows our radiologists to perform swift diagnostic imaging.

Our Heart Rhythm Center is the only department in Kyushu specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmia. The center performs catheter ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation and other diseases, focusing on a breakthrough therapy called “box isolation” developed for the first time by our center director, Dr. Koichiro Kumagai. More than 1000 cases have been treated using this method over the past three and one-half years since the hospital opened, and this is among the largest number of such cases nationwide. Approximately 80% of these cases were for atrial fibrillation.

Other Features of Our Hospital

Fukuoka Sanno Hospital also takes pride in its Preventive Medicine Department. There is a floor dedicated to the Preventive Medical Center, where comprehensive medical checkups are performed and gynecology and breast examinations are located in an area exclusively for female patients to ensure privacy. Comprehensive medical checkups can be customized with a diverse range of options to suit the needs of individual patients. Our hospital places the highest priority on hospitality, with amenities such as a pool, training room, and bedrock baths.

Specialists from each department confer on your test results to produce a more accurate diagnosis, and health checks and directions given by a personal physician or health nurse are also major features of our hospital system.

A Message to International Patients from Our Hospital

Fukuoka Sanno Hospital is located in Fukuoka City, which is known as the gateway to Asia. One of our new initiatives has been to better prepare our system to respond particularly to the medical consultation needs of international patients. We have interpreters on staff for English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Korean. At the same time, we are preparing our hospital information signs, materials, and website in these languages. With our sights set on the globalization of medical care, we will continue our efforts to become a frontier medical institution in the region, while collaborating with government and other hospitals.
