Best posture for smooth bowel movement

Do you know the famous Rodin’s sculpture “The Thinker”?
If you feel it is not smooth on defecation or have complained of constipation, I recommend to change your body posture ‘The Thinker’ position in the bathroom.
A very interesting study report was published about that ‘The Thinker’ position seems to be a more efficient method for defecation than the sitting position.
Believe or not, it is the ideal method for smooth bowel movement based on human engineering.

Digital data is available

After you had a mammography or an ultrasound examination at the breast care unit in our clinic, we can provide these digital data at your request.
It costs 540 yen and please give us 10 to 15 minutes to select data and burn them to CD-R.


Drug information in English

When you received prescribed medication at the Medical facility in Japan, you also receive “drug information sheet”.
However, many of the medical facilities have only Japanese version.
Most of our patients are Japanese or who understands Japanese in this clinic as well, but we also have non-Japanese speakers.
Therefore, I asked pharmaceutical companies, whether they have a drug information sheet in English, then, I learnt this website existed.
You can search drugs by product name, active substance or keyword such as “ointment hemorrhoid”. And search result will be a list with photos.


Clinic library

In Japan, most of the waiting areas at the medical facilities have newspapers, weekly journals about health, the economy and gossip magazines.
At our clinic, we have books and magazines that the clinic director and I have collected for female patients.
They are written in Japanese or English and cover topics such as recipes, handicrafts, pets, nature, travel and culture, etc.
We have nice photography books as well.


Sunday breast check 2018

A little bit late for this but…. a happy new year!!
We hope 2018 will be a great year for you.
Well,I would like to announce that we are going to implement “Sunday Breast Check”
in this year also.



I ask my patients various questions first, including ones about their bowel movements, at the proctology clinic. It is important for me to know about the shapes and the types of their stools. However, it is difficult for patients to explain the type to me, because they have no chance to compare their own stools with others. So, I draw the “Bristol Scale”. This is a diagnostic medical tool designed to classify stools into seven groups. It helps my patients to tell me about their bowel habits.


About Day Surgery

Day surgery: it sounds easy and convenient, like a drive-through, but actually, day surgery is still a surgical operation.

If you are interested in having day surgery at my clinic, I would like to provide you in advance with some information and guidelines regarding the process.

1. You need to have our nurse give you a blood test and a set of preoperative instructions at least a week before the day surgery.
➡ We need to confirm that the condition of your health is good enough to receive surgery without hospitalization. We also need to provide you with enough information and instructions for a safe operation.


Just an itch, but…

One of the most common symptoms we see in our proctology unit is anal itch .
The condition may be caused by hemorrhoids, fissures, or dermatitis.
Another possibility is Candida.
