Department of Neurology

July 30,2021 Update

Introduction

The Department of Neurology at the Saitama Medical University Medical Center was established in 2004 and has young and lively classrooms that are advancing every day. The Department of Neurology treats and conducts research on various neurological disorders, including immunologic neurological diseases, peripheral neurological disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, and neuro-denegenerdive.

Our department accepts more than 250 cerebrovascular disease patients throughout the year, and performs tPA treatment, which is the latest ultra-acute treatment, and neuro-endovascular catheter treatment, treatment from the acute phase to convalescence, and is also actively engaged in rehabilitation treatment from the acute stage.

On the research side, we not only provide medical treatment for intractable neurological diseases, but also conduct research on diseases such as intractable neurological diseases, and are a member of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare research group for overcoming intractable diseases and immune neurological disorders. The latest treatments using immunotherapy (steroid therapy, immunoglobulin therapy, plasmapheresis, immunosuppression therapy, etc.) are performed as treatments for immunologic neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, encephalitis, myelitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and myasthenia gravis, and in recent years, the research and development of the pioneering treatment of plasmapheresis has been getting good results and is internationally acclaimed. In addition, the main focus is on the pathology of the disease and its new treatment with measures such as peripheral blood T/B cell subset, serum cytokines, oxidative stress, antioxidant power, and various autoantibodies. We have realized actual clinical feedback based on the latest knowledge. In addition, we are also actively introducing the latest treatments from clinical trials for neurological intractable diseases.

Patient care at our department

Our department performs medical treatments for a variety of neurological disorders, including cerebrovascular disorders, immunological neurological diseases, peripheral neurological disorders, neuro-degenerative diseases, headaches, dementia, and epilepsy.
In particular, the latest treatments using immunotherapy (steroid therapy, immunoglobulin therapy, plasmapheresis, immunosuppression therapy, and so on) are performed as treatments for immunologic neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, encephalitis, myelitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and myasthenia gravis, and in recent years, the research and development of the pioneering treatment of plasmapheresis has been getting good results and is internationally acclaimed.
We have established a specialty outpatient clinic for each disease, and we provide advanced treatment for patients.

Specialty Outpatient and Unique Outpatient
  1. Multiple sclerosis (Nomura, Fukaura, Ohji)
  2. Parkinson's disease/degenerative diseases (Nomura, Yoshida)
  3. Myasthenia gravis (Isaki, Ohji)
  4. Headaches(Hara)
  5. Guillain‐Barre syndrome CIDP (Narukawa)
  6. Cerebral stroke (Denpo, Tajima)
  7. Dystrophia myotonica (Kinoshita)
  8. Epilepsy (Furuya)
  9. Dementia (Suzuki)
  10. Electrophysiology (Narukawa, Ishizuka)
  • * For patients with dementia, once the diagnosis and treatment policy have been clarified, we will request continuation of the treatment to the related facilities. Please be advised of this in advance.
  • * Patients with intractable epilepsy are asked to go to Saitama Medical University Hospital Epilepsy Center outpatient clinic. (This is due to the absence of a specialist in our Department of Epilepsy)
  • * We set up "Multiple sclerosis," "Myasthenia gravis," "Epilepsy," "Dementia," "Parkinson's Disease," and "Muscular dystrophy" specialty outpatient clinics in 2011.
Regarding examinations
The outpatient clinic is available Mondays to Saturdays and closed on Sundays and public holidays. If you are a first time patient or do not have a reservation, please complete the reception process between 8:30 am and 11:00 am.
Saturday medical care system
  • For initial consultations:
    we will provide outpatient care for patients who have an initial consultation or a referral letter.
  • For repeat exams:
    In principle, there are no repeat exams on Saturdays. Please be aware of this. There is no change in the repeat exams for the Muscular Dystrophy Specialist outpatient clinic.
  • If you have a referral letter or X-ray, please submit it at the outpatient counter.
Repeat treatment and Specialty Outpatient
We use a complete reservation system. First, visit the initial consultation outpatient clinic from Monday to Saturday, and if you need an exam or professional treatment, the outpatient doctor will make a reservation for each outpatient specialist.

Main diseases

The diseases that are the target of the Department of Neurology develop from the brain to the spinal cord, the nerves of the limbs and the muscular areas and are quite varied.
Specific examples are a stroke as brain disease (cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage), Parkinson's disease, encephalitis, and meningitis. peripheral nerve include Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), diabetic peripheral neuropathy, and various neuralgia. Muscle diseases include dystrophia myotonica.

Neurological intractable diseases include immunological neurological disorders (multiple sclerosis (MS), myasthenia gravis (MG), Guillain-Barre syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and spinocerebellar degeneration.
Others include headaches, epilepsy, dementia, cervical and lumbar disease.

Patient's symptoms

Because the "target diseases of the Department of Neurology" cover a wide range, we are actually examining various cases. The main symptoms that patients complain of include a wide variety, such as "headaches, numbness of their limbs, dizziness, forgetfulness, trembling of their limbs, weakness of their limbs, cramps, limbs that move without intention, trouble swallowing, inarticulate speaking, double vision, grow tired easily, droopy eyelids, unsteadiness."

We know that it is difficult for patients to determine whether they should visit the Department of Neurology. In such a case, one of the means is to consult your neighborhood doctor about your symptoms, and they can recommend a visit to the Department of Neurology clinic. In that case, the treatment in our department will proceed more smoothly if you can bring a letter of referral. Thank you.

In addition, we are actively engaged in the presentation of academic papers and publications, and we have realized actual clinical feedback based on the latest knowledge.

About the recruitment of medical student doctors and visitors

The Department of Neurology handles a wide range of subject diseases which are often associated with other diseases and require a holistic response. As management including wide range of treatments is necessary, it is possible for students to acquire them evenly. We believe that it is the selling point of our department. By listening to the voices of all patients during the training period, and giving the medical treatments without being bound by neurological diseases, students will gain variable experiences in their internship. For the classification of inpatients, please refer to the results by medical treatment.

Referrals from other medical institutions

  • If possible, we would appreciate it if you could describe the medical information.
  • The outpatient clinic is available Mondays to Saturdays and closed on Sundays and public holidays. (Whether or not there is a referral) Please explain to your patients who are being referred that referrals are accepted between 8:30 am and 11:00 am. Please contact the department directly by telephone in advance when there is a referral outside of the above hours.
  • The specialist outpatient clinics use a complete reservation system. First, visit the initial consultation outpatient clinic from Monday to Saturday, and if you need an exam or professional treatment, the outpatient doctor will make a reservation for each outpatient specialist. Please be aware of this.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at the Department of Neurology outpatient Tel.: 049-228-3603
