Department of Pediatrics


Chairman and Professor Shinichi Hirose M.D.,Ph.D.

Our department's credo is "for the happiness of children" and we provide a variety of medical services for children from infancy to adolescence. Epilepsy, in particular, is often treated here and our research on its pathogenesis has gained nation-wide recognition. Our staff, over 30 pediatricians with different special fields, is happy to handle any concerns about your children. Please consult with one of our physicians at Fukuoka University Hospital.
