Clinic Concept

POLICYOur Policy

Anyone in the whole world would be scared of being cut open. Our policy is to use painless and state-of-the-art techniques. At our clinic, surgeries are performed with the world’s most advanced surgical techniques while reducing the pain as much as possible, and treatments are provided by one of the most seasoned doctors in Japan having performed numerous amount of surgeries, hoping that we can make our patients feel at ease while receiving our treatments and surgeries. In Japan, there are few doctors who can perform oculoplastic and orbital surgery like we do. Therefore many people in Japan have given up receiving treatments not able to find a capable doctor. I have gained clinical experience and learned the most advanced treatments at a hospital in University of California Los Angeles, the world’s leading medical institution, and now I attend about four conferences every year to update my knowledge. This year, I have seen and treated a number patients who came from all over Japan, from Hokkaido to Kyushu. I founded my clinic precisely with this in mind; I wanted to cure people who have not been able to receive treatments. I will treat patients based on my state-of-the-art surgical knowledge and experience employing anesthesia to minimize pain. If you are debating whether to receive treatment or not, please let us hear your problems.

Treatment leveraging state of the art knowledge and abundant experience

Invisible incision

Our surgeries are performed in a way that hides scarring, leveraging the clinical experience and knowledge at the worlds’ leading hospital. We avoid scarring on the skin as much as possible by making the incision on conjunctiva (the mucous membrane inside of eyelid) in most surgeries, except when removal of skin is unavoidable. Please contact us if you had orbit fracture or orbital tumor and want to avoid skin incision.

Getting back to life soon after surgery

Because incision without scarring is minimally invasive, the surgery can finish quickly, and the pain and swelling after surgery can be minimized. Therefore the majority of surgeries, including surgeries under general anesthesia, are performed as day surgery, whenever possible.

Biography and achievements

DoctorMami KawamuraMami Kawamura / MD

I chose this path because I was attracted to the uniqueness of the oculoplastic department in which an ophthalmologist performs surgery of the surrounding area of the eyes. I perform examinations and surgeries using microscopes with the meticulousness of an ophthalmologist. I also make sure to pay scrupulous attention to aesthetic aspects during examinations as a female doctor.
