Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

General Description of the Department and the Course

In our department, each member of the staff is concerned with providing satisfactory medical services to the people visiting the hospital. For the purpose, we try to functionally combine cutting-edge medical services which are expected in a university hospital and community-oriented medical services as the leading hospital in Yamanashi Prefecture. We provide the medical services in the areas of high-risk pregnancy, childbirth management, state of the art reproductive medicine, multidisciplinary treatment and management of gynecologic cancers, and menopause and geriatric gynecology in addition to general Obstetrics and Gynecology. If you wish to consult with us about anything, please do not hesitate to talk to the doctors, nurses, and midwives. Since this is a University Hospital, education and training of future doctors, nurses, and midwives are also our important mission. This is why you might find our system is slightly intimidating and different from general hospitals. If you can understand this situation and cooperate with us, it would be greatly appreciated.
