The Hakuaikai introduced mammography machines in 1973 for the first time in Kyushu and through its accumulation of history and achievements is now known as a hospital specializing in breast cancer.

By using digital mammography and senoadvantage (CAD) machines, it is possible to detect minute lesions for diagnosis. The hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art mammotomes to diagnose such minute lesions.

Currently, our clinic’s breast cancer ward performs the 4th largest number of operations in Japan. One of the reasons patients choose our hospital is that we try to lessen the burden on our patients by adopting breast-conserving surgery or setting sentinel lymph node biopsy as our standard care. Reconstructive mammaplasty is conducted to put emphasis on cosmetic results. The radiotherapy facility was established in 2007 allowing postoperative radiotherapy.
