Dr. Yasushi Odawara,

  • Doctor of Medicine. Specialist in Reproductive Medicine

In-vitro fertilization began more than 40 years ago. Today, 1 in 20 children is born thanks to assisted reproductive technology, and an ever-wider range of patients are seeking treatment. This includes older patients, patients suffering from intractable infertility issues such endometrial insufficiency and poor egg quality, and those struggling with repeated failure to conceive and carry a child. For patients like these, a one-size-fits-all solution is not enough. Instead, we must customize treatment plans to match the needs of each couple. This individualized approach is what sets our clinic apart and forms the backbone of our organizational values. Our highly trained team of experts includes infertility specialists, infertility-certified nurses, dedicated embryologists and psychological and genetic counsellors. Together, we promise to provide patients with the best treatment and support we can offer.

  • About Partner Testing

Around 50% of infertility cases results from "male factor" infertility. As successful treatment may not be achieved by addressing the female patient alone, we recommend undergoing a semen analysis. Ideal conditions for testing occur after 2 to 3 days of abstinence (without ejaculation). If the abstinence period is too short or too long, it could impact the test results. If you would like a test for your partner, please make your reservation with this abstinence period in mind. You can also make a reservation for testing on a separate day.

Receipts

Unfortunately, we are unable to re-issue receipts.

Patients with spouses

We understand that every relationship is unique. In order to protect the rights and well-being of children born through reproductive assistance treatments, our hospital offers treatment only to legally married couples. However, we know that some couples live a stable, long term, essentially married life without formal marriage, due to a number of reasons including issues around surnames. In such cases, we will decide on treatment after listening to your circumstances and viewing requested documents. As we provide our services with the happiness of the child placed first, in some situations treatment may be refused.


Patients with children
hoping to get pregnant

Please note that we do not permit patients to bring their children to appointments. If you must bring your child, please place them in the unstaffed kid's room. They cannot stay in the lobby. The clinic bears no responsibility for any injuries or accidents that may result. Please make sure your child is accompanied at all times in our clinic, and do not leave children unsupervised in the kids' room. Initial consultations will involve detailed and potentially sensitive conversations about your future treatment plan, so please do not bring your children.

Children cannot be present for uterine oviducture tube examination, self injection instruction, artificial insemination, hysteroscopy, egg collection, embryo transfer, or IVF instruction. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse treatment to patients accompanied by children in such cases.

facility is located here.

Online, you can also make an appointment outside the reception hours of the clinic. The system is in Japanese, but there is an English manual (click here). If you are unable to make an online appointment on the day you discussed with your doctor, or if you did not make an appointment for your examination, we will accept appointments at the reception desk or by phone. Even if you need to make an appointment for the same day or in cases of emergency, please call us before coming to the clinic. Patients who speak only English, please check the schedule of Director Odawara. Please be advised that if you make an appointment for a time when he is unavailable, your appointment will be with a different doctor.

About using our video streaming service

When undergoing treatment, you can reduce the number of clinic visits by performing your own shots injections.
To safely self injection, you will need the instruction of a nurse. We have produced an English-language video explaining everything you'll need to know, available for you to view as preparation or review.
To watch the video, you will need to register with our appointment system.
