My name is Koichi Hirahata, and I have been chosen as the new director of the board at Souyukai Medical Corporation, preceded by former director Tetsuyuki Hirahata.
At UDX Hirahata Clinic, we have been placing an effort in cancer gene testing and gene treatments. In recent years we have had patients from outside Japan, mainly from other Asian regions. We wish to do our best to meet this great responsibility.
In recent years, research and development for cancer treatment has been developing very rapidly and cancer treatments will be even more diverse. Patients will be able to choose the treatment that is best for them.
Here at UDX Hirahata Clinic, our mission is to meet the needs of each and every patient and providing the best, most safe medical treatment.
We look forward to making a contribution to this mission.
Board Director, Soyukai Medical Corporation
Thank you for choosing UDX Hirahata Clinic.
I have been newly appointed as Clinic Director, taking over the position from Dr. Tetsuyuki Hirahata.
After passing the National board examinations, I trained as a surgeon and later worked as a Urologist prior to taking a position at UDX Hirahata Clinic 7 years ago to learn more about medical treatments of the future. After a brief hiatus and maternity leave, I decided to return to this clinic while studying more about Genomics and Oncology.
It would be a great honor to receive your support and guidance as you have done with Dr. Tetsuyuki Hirahata.
As Clinic Director, my mission is going back to basics while taking the next steps.
“Basics” will be reviving and reworking Dr.Tetsuyuki Hirahata’s original idea of creating tests and treatment (regeneration treatment) when this clinic was first opened. To do this, I feel that we need to build on the gene test and treatment mindset while asking ourselves why the patient needs a certain gene test or treatment.
We also want to closely capture the needs, base ourselves on what the original mission was, and be at a place where we have evolved.
Together we want this clinic to be a place where our patients are satisfied, and our staff members work with vigor and enthusiasm.

Cancer occurs when the genes inside cells are damaged (through genetic variation).The nature of the damage (genetic variation) is different for each person.Even among lung cancer patients only, for example, the damaged genes will vary from patient to patient.
Our clinic conducts genetic diagnoses and inspects the results for cancer-related mutations based on 131 kinds of mutation manifestations.We conduct our treatments with a precise understanding of each individual patient’s genetic variations.
Cancer gene therapy (suppressor gene therapy) is a treatment that stimulates the elimination of cancer cells and the normalization of genes by injecting normalized tumor suppressor genes into the patient’s body.
To detect cancer early it’s best to discover it at the stage when genetic mutations begin to build up and diagnose and treat it before cancerous cells grow and become too big. Our clinic’s multiplex cancer diagnosis system, is system that can test 131 different genes at the same time. With just a 28ml blood sample from the patient we can investigate their genetic information and provide a diagnosis, helping you prevent and treat cancer. In addition to this, the system can also estimate your risk of various types of cancer in the next 3-5 years.
