Zushi Ginzadori Clinic as of December 1, 2012 has expanded to provide health care services to both the Foreign and Japanese community in four areas: General Medicine, Psychosomatic Medicine, Surgery including endocrine (Thyroid and Breast) Disease, and Geriatric Medicine.
Modern medicine has made such rapid advancement in diagnosis and therapy that this has inevitably led to a focus on “specialization”. As a result, we may have forgotten to observe the person as a whole something that is of paramount importance.
Zushi Ginzadori Clinic has established A Collaboration of General Medicine, Surgery, and Psychosomatic Medicine that will ensure Total Health Care for the whole community.

We are general practitioners each with our own specialization.
We cover diverse diseases including cardiovascular disease; hypertension and arrhythmia; respiratory disease; asthma and the common cold; gastrointestinal disease; reflux esophagitis and peptic ulcer disease; metabolic disease; diabetes and lipid abnormalities; endocrine disease and thyroid problems and so forth. Upon a visit to our Clinic we will conduct an examination to ascertain any physical or mental symptoms of disease that may be apparent and empirical treatment will commence. Should further examination be deemed necessary we will introduce you to the CT/MRI Center of your convenience.
Total health care as it relates to psychosomatic medicine can be achieved by observing both the well-being of the body and the mind including social and environmental problems. The therapy that is conducted, therefore, is multi-faceted. Modern society has become increasingly complex and personal responses to a variety of stresses differ. It is not uncommon for a tiny event to induce major damage to both the body and the mind and early detection, proper diagnoses and treatment are as important as in any other disease.
What is Minor Surgery?
In general terms, surgery is the term traditionally used for treatments that involve cutting or stitching tissue. Minor surgery is any surgical procedure that does not involve general anesthesia or respiratory assistance during the surgical procedure. There are many conditions that can be treated quickly and easily by minor surgery.
Conditions can be treated under Local Anesthesia
Skin tags/Skin Biopsy, Skin cyst, Abscess, Incision and Drainage of an Abscess, Biopsy of growths, In-growing toe nails, Lipomas/Fatty tumors, Pre-cancerous skin lesions, Laceration and Incision Repair of Skin & Soft Tissue, Anal Fissure, Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology and Biopsy, Burn Treatment, and Foreign Body Removel from skin and soft tissue and many more conditions.
The Thyroid is an organ that produces a hormone essential for living. When abnormalities in hormone levels transpire, a variety of symptoms appear that cause a person to feel “poorly”. For instance, some persons with thyroid disease may seem to be “lethargic” or “depressed”. One in 20 people are reported to have thyroid disease, including Basedow’s (hyperthyroid) disease or Hashimoto’s (hypothyroid) disease. Tumors may also be found in the thyroid, both benign or malignant. Diagnostic examinations, medical treatment and follow-up are provided at the Thyroid department.
Incidence of breast cancer has been increasing not only in the western countries but in Japan as well, reflecting changes in life and food style of “westernization”. Breast examinations by echogram are available.
At the Oncology Department doctors of oncology and psychosomatic medicine work together to ensure patient care. Unlike any other disease Cancer is a disease where patients often become anxious or depressed for fear that the disease may either progress or recur. Counseling and therapeutic supportive care are provided for those under treatment as reports have shown that by maintaining a positive psychological state during the course of active treatment the prognosis for Cancer patients can improve. In addition, with the introduction onto the market of newer chemotherapeutic medication Cancer treatment has advanced so rapidly that it has had a significant effect on prolonging survival. Some of this medication can be taken by mouth without the need of IV continuous injections. Patients who are undergoing per oral (p.o.) chemotherapy are followed-up at our clinic.
