Kashiwa Hand Clinic
Our specialized hand surgery doctors will work with you to understand and treat your hand injuries or diseases in a clear and natural manner, together.
The hand is an extension of the brain that allows humans to put their thoughts into action. We often take our hands for granted, but when they do not function correctly, we quickly realize their importance and necessity. Our doctor's concept is to provide care that is understandable, natural, and collaborative. Let's work together to treat and heal your illness or injury.
Our clinic specializes in hand orthopedics.
Rehabilitation by Hand Therapists (Occupational Therapists)
At our clinic, we provide rehabilitation services by hand therapists (occupational therapists). We assist in pain relief, functional recovery of injured areas, and strengthening muscles after surgery.
Collaboration between Hospitals and Clinics
We work closely with hospitals and clinics to provide treatment based on the patient's condition. If necessary, we will refer patients to a core hospital. We also accept patients with difficult conditions that are not treated in general orthopedics.

The hand is part of the brain that extends from the body. It is a tool given to humans to execute their thoughts.
We tend to take our hands for granted, but when they become disabled, we realize their importance and necessity. As a physician, my concept is to understand the disease or injury more simply and naturally and to treat it together.
There are three keywords that support this concept:
- 1. Mind and body are separate things.
- 2. Every body has a carpenter.
- 3. The body follows the laws of nature.
1. Mind and body are separate things.
Your body belongs to you, but it is not you. Throughout history, physical and mental health have been regarded as separate entities. The hand, like any other part of the human body, follows the laws of nature, but your mind has a significant influence on it.
2. Every body has a carpenter.
Have you ever noticed that a mosquito bite or a scratch heal without your notice when the itch or pain disappears? Every body has a carpenter that heals diseases and injuries. We, as physicians, simply assist them. We put casts or perform surgeries to make it easier for carpenters to work. However, it is the carpenters inside you who actually heal your fractures.
3. The body follows the laws of nature.
You probably know the natural law that "water falls from high places to low places." If you keep your hand in a plaster cast for too long, you may get bleeding in your fingertips because of gravity. When you lift your arm above your head, blood flows down from your shoulder.
This website explains various diseases related to the hand. Although treatment may be necessary, understanding the disease can help you control it. Please feel free to use this website.
Let's get well together.
