Since I started a medical career at Toranomon Hospital in 1977, I have been operating more than 4500 cases of sellar or parasellar lesions including pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas. After completion of general neurosurgical training at Toranomon Hospital, I decided to start my carrier as pituitary surgeon and went to Toronto to learn pituitary research under professor Kovacs (his group was the foremost pituitary pathology group in the world at that time). In addition, I met two masters at that time in Canada (Professor Drs Hardy and Guiot who had spread transsphenoidal microsurgery throughout the world and I was influenced very much). After I returned to Toranomon Hospital from Canada, I decided to devote myself to surgical treatment of patients suffering from various pituitary disorders, mainly pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas. In April 2005, I started up a special division called ” Hypothalamic and Pituitary Surgery” at Toranomon Hospital focusing on surgical treatment for patients with pituitary diseases, which was the first establishment in Japan and over 300 patients suffering from pituitary disorders underwent surgery every year with the great help of endocrinologists, pediatric endocrinologists, and pathologists as pituitary endocrine team. At the end of March 2018, I reached mandatory retirement and moved to Moriyama Neurosurgical Center hospital from Toranomon hospital in the beginning of April, which is also located in metropolitan Tokyo. I newly developed pituitary center consisting of not only 7 qualified neurosurgeons, but pituitary endocrinologists, pathologists, and radiologists. I had already operated more than 200 cases until the end of march,2019.
