Ningen Dock

The “Ningen Dock” is a complete medical checkup to check if there is any problem with your health. If we can prevent, find or treat early a cancer, heart disease or stroke, which are difficult to find in an early stage, it will bring you and your family great safety and certainty. We recommend a yearly Ningen Dock checkup.

Features of Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

In all of our Ningen Dock courses, we use electronic endoscope to find small lesions.

1. Less painful

Our endoscopic examination (upper & lower gastrointestinal tracts) is performed while you are asleep by sedation*. It is free from pain. Even if you don’t use sedatives for exams, we use a thin endoscope that can diminish a vomiting reflex.

2. Electronic endoscope with observational function by special light

We use an advanced magnifying endoscopic system with NBI (Narrow Band Imaging). A combination of NBI and a magnifying endoscope enables early detection and early treatment of minute lesions such as cancers. If a lesion that can be treated endoscopically is found, it can be brought to further exams and treatment here.

3. Safety and Hygiene

Examination rooms are clean and individualized, and equipped with monitoring systems for ECG, blood pressure, etc. You can spend comfortable time on a recovery bed before and after your exams in a relaxed way. All the endoscopic procedures are being managed by monitoring systems, so safe exams are secured.

  • The effectiveness of a sedative varies between individuals.
  • Your doctor may decide that you should not use a sedative.
  • When you are going to use a sedative, please do not come to the hospital by car or bicycle.
  • When you take peroral endoscopy with sedation, please use a public transportation system. Do not drive a car, or ride a motorbike or bicycle, because test agents can affect your normal behavior. If you come by a car, you will have peroral endoscopy without sedation.
  • You can change, free of charge, to upper gastrointestinal x-ray examination or upper endoscopy without sedation.

We have 2 suites on the top (11th) floor. These are hotel-style rooms using beige and brown as base colors, and one with an ocean view (the capital freeway coast line) and the other with a land view (the Sky Tree).

Why is Ningen Dock necessary?

Diseases that can be often found by Ningen Dock such as cancers, heart diseases and strokes, have few symptoms at an early stage, and it is too late to start treatment after symptoms are expressed. We recommend you to have Ningen Dock for prevention, early detection and early treatment.

Who should have Ningen Dock?

Those who want to keep their health, drink a lot, smoke, who are under stress, overworked, in a position with responsibility, get tired easily, lack of stamina, have a tendency to gain weight, in poor physical condition, whose family members have high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, or cerebrovascular disease.

Can anyone have Ningen Dock?

Basically, anyone over 20.

How is Ningen Dock different from an ordinary medical checkup?

Compared with an ordinary medical checkup, Ningen Dock has more test items which are more advanced and highly accurate. It is a full physical examination, but furthermore, optional test items can be added at your request.

How often should we have Ningen Dock?

Once a year would be recommended.

Can I have Ningen Dock when I have a cold?

When you have a cold, the Ningen Dock can make it worse. Please consult your doctor beforehand.

Finally

We are more than happy if you are interested in the Ningen Dock now. But you may think that it is not easy because it takes time, or it costs a lot without insurance coverage. I’m not ill, I’m still young, may be what you think.

But once you get ill, you don’t know how much time and money will be necessary. More than that, you will beat up yourself and people around you.

Once again, it is just too late when you have symptoms for cancers, heart diseases or strokes. We have this web page hoping to reduce the number of people who will have a hard time.

If only you have Ningen Dock once a year, you can feel easy and get a better life. “I’m o.k.” is risky. Please consider having Ningen Dock just for once.
