Message to StudentsBesides teaching at the Faculty of Nurcing and Medical Care, I do some clinical and research work at Shinanomachi campus. My subspecialties are knee surgery, sports medicine and joint biomechanics. The main clinical concerns are total knee replacement, knee ligament reconstruction and other arthroscopic procedures for sports injuries. One of the research subjects now going on, is three-dimentional motion analysis of joint motion. We have just started new projects for the motion analysis of joints during rehabilitation exrcises and some other activities. If you have interest for any of these subjects, please let us know by e-mail.
