Takayuki Yoshida, MD, PhD, EDRA

Assistant Professor

Department of Anesthesiology, Kansai Medical University Hospital

Dr. Takayuki Yoshida graduated as a medical doctor from Niigata University, Japan in 2006. He obtained a board certification from the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists in 2013. He successfully defended his PhD thesis in 2015 at Graduate School of Niigata University Medical and Dental Sciences. He has been employed as an Assistant Professor at Kansai Medical University Hospital since 2016. Dr. Yoshida’s main areas of interest are the techniques used for ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block. He and his colleagues have published several papers about clinical trials of peripheral nerve blocks, especially truncal blocks and nerve blocks for lower extremity surgery, in renowned anesthesia journals. Furthermore, he has given a number of lectures and served as an instructor on different aspects of regional anesthesia at national and international congresses. In 2015, he received the Young Investigator’s Award of Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists for his research regarding a continuous thoracic paravertebral block. In addition, he received the Young Investigator’s Award of The Japan Society for Clinical Anesthesia for his research regarding a new obturator nerve block technique in 2016. He occasionally serves as a guest reviewer for leading international anesthesia journals including British Journal of Anaesthesia, Journal of Anesthesia, and Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine.
