Welcome to the Department of Urology, Institute of Medical Science (IMSUT) Hospital, The University of Tokyo

The University of Tokyo was the first national university in Japan and has contributed the development of modern medical science. IMSUT Hospital Urology was established in July, 2020 by the urologists of the University of Tokyo.

We provide a comprehensive environment for the diagnosis and treatment of urologic cancer, dysuria, overactive bladder, and urinary incontinence. We offer laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery by board-certified surgeons, which are recognized as minimally invasive care for adrenal tumors, renal cancer, ureteral cancer and prostate cancer. In addition to surgery, we use the latest knowledge to propose drug treatment, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Evidence-based medicine is our principle.


We are also engaged in basic research to develop innovative drugs for castration resistant prostate cancer in the field of nuclear receptor signaling.

We are located in Shirokanedai, one of the most popular residential neighborhoods in central Tokyo with convenient access to transportation.

We welcome international patients. There is limousine bus access from Narita and Haneda International airports to the Sheraton Miyako Hotel Tokyo, which is conveniently located nearby our hospital.
