He operated on my sister, Katherine Renn, and possibly saved her life. Both she and I were impressed with him on the first visit. We both felt like he was the best. We had gone to Duke first, but we decided we did NOT want interns to help with surgery. Dr. Fukushima was the ONLY one who would be operating on my sister. We are very happy that he was the one who did her surgery. She has done extremely well over the years since the surgery. I believe it has now been 10 years since her surgery.

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.
