Department of Pediatrics


Chairman and Professor Shinichiro Nagamitsu M.D.,Ph.D.

At the Department of Pediatrics of Fukuoka University Hospital, we have a medical treatment system that can seamlessly provide medical care for children's health and development from the perinatal period to early adolescence. In addition to our General Perinatal Medical Center, which provides intensive care for mothers and newborns, we have numerous departments for handling child development, allergic diseases, short stature, heart diseases, epilepsy, neurological diseases, infectious diseases, psychosomatic disorders, blood diseases, metabolic diseases, and kidney diseases. We regard children as biopsychosocial beings and therefore engage in the treatment of their physical and mental health issues in collaboration with our health, education, and welfare departments. The pediatric department's creed is "For the happiness of the child," and our pediatric specialists keep this creed in mind during the day-to-day treatment of our patients.
