Aichi Spine Institute

We specialize in spine disease. Our hospital features complete spinal evaluation and we perform minimally invasive surgery on the cervical and lumbar spine. The surgical method of our hospital has a very small incision, and the resection of bones, muscle, the ligament and the contact to nerves, a blood vessel are minimized. Therefore there are extremely few burdens of the body and is safe without sequelae. Also, we can return to everyday life and work early because length of stay is short (in the shortest overnight), and recovery is early. We opened a Tokyo office named “Tokyo Spine Institute” in Ginza. Drs Ito, Miura and Shibayama speak fluent English. Foreigners are welcome.
