A medical university in Aichi Prefecture located adjacent to Haneda Airport in Tokyo will open a medical facility that mainly provides advanced medical care that is not covered by public insurance in Japan, such as cutting-edge cancer treatment and regenerative medicine, and the facility was opened to related parties on the 30th.
This facility was opened to related parties on September 10 at the Fujita Health University Tokyo Center for Advanced Medicine, newly established in a complex adjacent to Haneda Airport, ahead of its opening in October.
In this facility, there is a clinic with six departments such as orthopedics and obstetrics,
▽ regenerative medicine such as cartilage, ▽ genomic treatment such as whole genetic testing of cancer, ▽ the latest infertility treatment
etc. This means providing advanced medical care that is not yet covered by public insurance in Japan within the framework of free medical care.
In addition, in the future, we will actively provide new medical care such as regenerative medicine using iPS cells when they enter the clinical stage, and facilities for conducting research on remote surgery using domestically produced surgical support robots have also been introduced.
According to the center, the center expects wealthy people overseas to receive medical examinations due to its location close to the airport, and Deputy Director Shigeto Harumura, who is in charge of the medical department, said, "We would like to quickly deliver treatments that are not covered by insurance in Japan, such as treatment that is standard overseas and regenerative medicine that guarantees safety."
