About

Dr. Shungo Hiroyasu is a Japanese Board-certified Gastroenterological Surgeon who graduated from Japan’s National Defense Medical College in 1987. He retired from this service as a surgeon-major in 1997 to become a faculty at the University of the Ryukyus, teaching gastroenterological surgery. Dr. Hiroyasu further developed his academic credentials by pursuing advanced scientific research in transplant immunology in the United States at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 1997-1998 and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York 2003-2007.
As a consultant gastroenterologist, Dr. Hiroyasu specializes in curing and preventing gastrointestinal disease, while respecting the concerns and individual needs of each client. His mission is to find the cause of patients’ abdominal symptoms and provide exceptional and timely care, while offering follow-up consultations for their chronic conditions.
Dr. Hiroyasu’s current focus is introducing the Japanese system of preventive medicine in the field of gastroenterology to UAE. He has brought forward advanced techniques of the most tolerable gastroscopy and colonoscopy while a patient is awake or under light sedation—a popular technique in Japan. Colorectal cancer is rapidly increasing as one of the most prevalent cancers in the region. Infection rate of Helicobacter Pylori, a bacteria inducing gastric cancer, is also very high in the Middle East. Early detection of these cancers significantly improves survival, reduces medical expenses, and improves a patient’s quality of life.
