Orthopedic Surgery

Aiming to recover and improve motor function

As the population is aging rapidly, the number of patients with complaints of low back pain, shoulder stiffness, and joint disorders in the upper and/or lower extremities, as well as patients with fractures, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis are increasing annually.
If the functions of the bones, joints, and nerves that support the body are impaired, it becomes difficult for people to lead a healthy and independent life.
In our department, we provide high-quality medical care for patients to be able to restore their body function and improve their daily activities of living, resulting in a high-quality life.
We can diagnose and treat aging-related degenerative diseases as well as trauma- and sports-related injuries of the spine and all joints in the body.
If you have any symptoms or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
