As a pediatric intensivist my goal is to take exceptional care of the sickest children. As a researcher, I strive to improve the safety and efficacy of extracorporeal treatment such as continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).
I am trained in acute care settings (ER, ICU, Inpatients) for both adults and children and I am comfortable taking care of the most unstable patients. I was chosen as Resident of the Year in Emergency Medicine during my residency in Japan.
In my research, I study anticoagulation for CRRT. I’m fascinated with the potential for these treatments, and I consider it a privilege to have seen how they are used from hospital to hospital and from country to country. I trained in the U.S. and in Japan, and I try to apply the positive aspects of each medical system to my practice and my research.
