Chairman and Professor Masaki Fujita M.D.,Ph.D.

The Department of Respiratory Medicine, Fukuoka University Hospital, provides a wide range of diagnoses and treatments for all kinds of respiratory diseases, such as lung cancer, interstitial lung disease, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma, respiratory tract infections (including COVID-19) and sleep apnea syndrome. The diagnostic services include roentgenogram, high-resolution computed tomography, spirogram, polysomnography, thoracoscopy and bronchoscopy (transbronchial biopsy, endobronchial ultrasound and bronchoalveolar lavage). Several doctors are board certified specialists of the Japanese Respiratory Society, the Japanese Society of Allergy, the Japan Society of Respiratory Endoscopy and the Japanese Association for Infectious Diseases.

We provide the best medical care for all patients with a combination of disease-specific and patient-oriented approaches. Every doctor cooperates with nurses, pharmacists, therapists, social workers and office clerks as a member of a medical team in order to provide patients with the highest quality medical care.
