Greeting from the Director

Hakodate Shintoshi Hospital strives every day to achieve the goal of “providing quality and appropriate medical care in an ideal environment.”

It has been exactly 30 years since the establishment of our hospital in 1987. It engages in treatment every day as a major neurosurgical hospital in the southern Hokkaido medical care zone with a population of approximately 470,000, and as a secondary on-call hospital of Hakodate City. Focusing also on pediatrics, cardiology, orthopedics and physiotherapy, the hospital provides seamless medical care from the acute to recovery stages.

Catheter treatment of cerebrovascular diseases is a less-invasive approach that does not require surgical procedures or long hospitalization. Hakodate Shintoshi Hospital is a leading hospital in this treatment in Hokkaido, and the number of cases treated is among the largest in Japan. The hospital is able to provide the latest and highly advanced medical services, including thrombectomy for patients with cerebral infarction, embolization for the treatment of cerebral arteriovenous malformation, and flow diverter procedures for aneurysms that can be performed only at the hospital. Physiotherapy using a transcranial magnetic stimulation system and robot suits conducted in cooperation with a university hospital is also highly effective.

We will continue to provide cutting-edge knowledge and technology as a community-based hospital playing a role in emergency medicine.

Departments

Department of Neurosurgery

The Department of Neurosurgery provides diagnosis and treatment for cerebral embolism, head trauma, brain tumors and various other cerebral disorders. With 3.0-tesla MRI, 64-row CT, digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and other highest-standard diagnostic devices, neurosurgical specialists can perform surgeries using microscopes (microsurgeries) even in emergency cases of subarachnoid and cerebral hemorrhages. The department is active in performing cerebrovascular treatment using catheters, which has progressed dramatically in recent years, and employs treatment methods with less physical burden on patients, such as stent placement for angiostenosis, treatment of cerebral aneurysms using coil embolization in combination with intracranial cerebrovascular stents, and embolization for cerebral arteriovenous malformation.

Department of Neurology

The Department of Neurology mainly deals with medical conditions of the brain.

Specifically, it is in charge of patients other than those of the Department of Neurosurgery, which performs surgeries and the Department of Psychiatry, which deals with mental conditions.

This department provides treatment mainly for symptoms such as headache, dizziness, numbness, memory loss and gait disorder, and disorders such as the aftereffects of strokes, Parkinson’s disease and dementia (e.g., Alzheimer’s, vascular, Lewy body).

Although efforts to make the correct diagnosis at the first visit through interviewing, neurological examination, diagnostic imaging, blood tests and other means, additional tests may be necessary in some cases.

The hospital is making constant efforts to improve the level of diagnosis by installing several of the latest MRI machines, and has been conducting the cerebral blood flow test (SPECT test), which is considered essential for the diagnosis of early dementia, for several years.

If you have any of the above symptoms, please feel free to inquire.

Department of Orthopedics

The Department of Orthopedics specializes in treatment of injuries and illnesses of bones, joints, ligaments and nerves, and treats many “familiar” disorders, including bone fractures, sprains, pain of the shoulder, knee and other joints (e.g., frozen shoulder, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis), neck pain, lower back pain and numbness in limbs (e.g., spine disorders, sciatica, peripheral neuropathy).

There are many different causes of back and joint pain, and accurate diagnosis is essential for appropriate treatment. The Department makes efforts to make the correct diagnosis by using 64-row multi-slice CT, MRI (3.0 and 1.5 tesla), bone scintigraphy, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and various other instruments for detailed examination as necessary.

A variety of surgeries can now be performed more safely thanks to the recent advance of medical science and equipment. The department aims for the earliest possible recovery by focusing also on physiotherapy.

Department of Cardiology

The Department of Cardiology provides treatment of cardiovascular disorders caused by clogging or narrowing of cardiac blood vessels (e.g., cardiac infarction, angina) and cardiac failure caused by deterioration of cardiac function, management of arrhythmia that may cause sudden death or cerebral infarction, and controls hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and other adult diseases.

Many of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disorders that are among the leading causes of death in Japan are caused by arteriosclerosis, which is known to progress due to hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, obesity and smoking.

The department strives for early detection of the signs of serious and fatal illnesses, such as cardiac infarction, cerebral infarction and cerebral hemorrhage, appropriate treatment for individual patients, proper management and treatment of adult diseases and prevention of the development of such diseases.

Department of Anesthesia

I made a decision to choose Hakodate Shintoshi Hospital as my new workplace at a turning point of my life, after working as an anesthesiologist for over 20 years. I intend to make the most of the skills and knowledge I have accumulated for the hospital and its patients. I believe that Shintoshi Hospital will give me challenging and interesting tasks that I cannot experience at a public hospital. I look forward to being of service to you.

Department of Dentistry

The Department of Dentistry of Hakodate Shintoshi Hospital opened in August 2015. I believe that the cooperation between the departments of medicine and dentistry will enable provision of comprehensive medical services.

This department places importance on informed consent to proceed with treatment together with the patients. As a dentist in the hospital, the department provides treatment using the latest medical equipment and thorough hygiene management to ensure safe and reliable dental care. We make efforts based on the concepts of “eating with your own teeth all your life” and “eating is living” as important issues in dental care. As the dentist that local people can trust and rely on, all the staff practice dental care from the viewpoint of patients.

Feel free to ask anything about your oral health.
