The Aichi Back Pain Operation Clinic is prestigious for conducting technically advanced back pain surgeries. In order to conduct these specialised surgeries using endoscopes, it is essential to experience a large number of cases. Every day after their examinations, the medical specialists gather in a conference room to exchange opinions about possible treatments while viewing CT, MRI, and X-ray images of their patients. In April 2012, a branch clinic was established in Tokyo, which made the sharing of cases and treatment methods between the main clinic in Aichi Prefecture and the Tokyo branch imperative. In the past, the two clinics shared their information by creating CDs filled with medical images and sending them to each other. This system lacked speed, so a web conferencing system was introduced. However, this system was also unable to resolve the communication issues due to video and sound delays as well as low quality audio transmission. Therefore, they continued to search for a system with high image and sound quality and less delays.

The Aichi Back Pain Operation Clinic is renowned for its use of endoscopic therapy for back pain. The main clinic is located in Aichi Prefecture, and a branch clinic was opened in the Ginza district of Tokyo in April 2012. The clinic specialises in back pain treatment, and thanks to the diagnoses of spinal examinations and minimally invasive spinal operations, this clinic is one of the few institutions that can provide this type of treatment. This is a highly specialised field and only a small number of medical institutions can conduct this type of surgery.
