Ishimura Nephrology and Urology Clinic
“Is this a salon or a cafe?” “No, it’s a urology department. “Ishimura Nephrology and Urology Clinic” Opened in October 2022 in Higashinada Ward, Kobe City. Even women and young people are no longer in an era where they have to deal with urination problems alone. Let’s solve your troubles at a urology clinic where you can feel free to visit.
“Ishimura Nephrology and Urology Clinic” opened in Higashinada Ward, Kobe City in October 2022. Previously, people hesitated to consult about urinary problems, saying, “I’m embarrassed to go to the urology department.” However, in recent years, urinary and kidney diseases have been featured in various media and social media, and everyone has realized that they are not alone. At our clinic, we have created a bright and warm atmosphere so that all patients can feel relaxed and comfortable during their visit. The waiting area, which is based on the warmth of wood with sunlight coming in, is full of greenery, and there is also a counter waiting area that protects privacy. Of course, it is barrier-free.
“Let’s put an end to worrying about urinary problems all by yourself.” For this reason, it is essential to provide appropriate medical care. And more important than that, I thought that I would lower the hurdles for consultation and prepare an environment where everyone can knock on the door of the urology department.
The “Ishimura Nephrology and Urology Clinic”, which opened in Higashinada Ward, Kobe City in October 2022, offers a wide range of treatments, including general urology, chronic kidney disease (CKD), and lifestyle-related diseases. Until March 2022, the director has been involved in a wide range of treatments at Kobe University Hospital, including dysuria treatment, kidney transplant surgery, and cancer treatment.
“Let’s put an end to the era of having to deal with urination problems all by yourself.” For that reason, it is of course a major premise to provide appropriate medical care. On top of that, I think that it is even more important that everyone can take the first step to undergo a medical examination. Therefore, at our clinic, we are particular about creating a bright atmosphere where anyone can receive medical care. [Image 2
Urination problems faced by men and women of all ages
In the past, elderly men with urinary problems accounted for the majority of urology patients. Waking up repeatedly in the middle of the night, or not being able to make it to the toilet in time, is called an overactive bladder. In fact, many women suffer from urinary symptoms. Among men and women over the age of 40, 15% of men and 10% of women have overactive bladder. That’s more than 1 in 10*. However, only a small percentage of those who actually visit a medical institution are currently 35% of men and 15% of women. Recently, various treatment options for these urinary troubles have increased, and there are various effective methods, such as treatment with medicines and interference low-frequency urinary incontinence treatment equipment that can be performed while sitting on a chair. I’m sure you’ll think, “Don’t worry, I should have come earlier.” * Overactive Bladder Management Guideline [3rd Edition] Japanese Society of Vomiting Function / Japanese Urological Association sexually transmitted diseases in young men
A disease that is transmitted through sexual activity is called a “sexually transmitted disease.” In particular, “chlamydia urethritis” and “syphilis” have become a problem recently. Chlamydial urethritis is on the rise among young people. There are many asymptomatic cases, and if you don’t know it, you can pass it on to your partner and cause infertility. When a man is infected, pus is discharged from the urethra and pain occurs when urinating, which is a very painful disease. In addition, syphilis has become a social problem due to its rapid increase. Ten years ago, in 2012, 875 people were reported to have been infected with syphilis across Japan. When you have a sexually transmitted disease, you tend to have troubles alone without being able to talk to them. However, such a disease is a familiar disease that “anyone can get it” if they lead a normal social life. No painful or embarrassing tests. Moreover, it is often curable with proper treatment. Getting it is not the problem, not treating it is the problem. Of course, including at the time of consultation, we will consider the privacy of male patients only by male doctors.

New National Disease “Chronic Kidney Disease; CKD”
“Chronic Kidney Disease; CKD” is something we often hear about in recent years. It is said to be a new national disease, and it is said that 1 out of 8 people in Japan falls under CKD*. Although CKD has few symptoms in the early stages, it is important to take measures to prevent progression according to the stage in order to prevent future progression. During his 25-year career, Director Ishimura has specialized in kidney transplantation, which aims to restore health by combining surgical operations and medical treatments. Most of the patients who received a kidney transplant fall under CKD. In order to protect the kidneys of such patients, I have been adjusting
immunosuppressants to suppress rejection and treating
lifestyle-related diseases such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes, which are closely related to the kidneys. More and more people are saying, “I was told I had chronic kidney disease during a checkup, but I didn’t know what kind of medical institution I should go to. I’m glad there’s a clinic near me that can check my kidneys.” In the future, we hope to continue to treat patients who have undergone kidney transplantation at our clinic, and to provide proper management of CKD and lifestyle-related diseases to local residents. *Imai E, et al : Prevalence of chronic kidney disease in the Japanese general population.
