Dr. Fukushima did my surgery 8 years ago and preserved my hearing. His precision is the best in the world. Trust me I researched surgeons. I am still debatable about his pain management after surgery but that could be because it is brain surgery. Not sure if that or his Japanese culture or the surgery itself. Yes, it was very painful at the hospital, it went away a week later. I do suffer from migraines even after surgery. Having another surgery with BAHA placement June 13, 2017. He is the best
12 years after surgery for ACOUSTIC NEUROMA my sister still lays in a bed in JAPAN un- able to speak, eat with-out medical assistance, move any extremity, and only can lay there 24/7. and this is after Dr. Fukushima promised to provide for her care. I would not let this man treat my dogs.
