Surgical services and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) started at the Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center. The BTFCC has full time surgeon, anesthesiologist, oncologist, MDGP physician, and a team of qualified medical officers, nursing staff, lab and other support staff to provide high quality care to our patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our physicians saw several patients this week including many cancer patients. Cancer patients from the region who are currently receiving treatment at cancer centers outside the province visited the center this week for follow up, and BTF president Dr. Binay Shah examined and advised those patients. One of our oncologists, Dr. Abish Adhikari, started his oncology clinic at BTFCC this week, and Dr. Birendra Yadav, another one of our oncologists, will start his oncology clinic on December 29. We also purchased an electrocariogram (ECG) machine, and several other equipment this week.
In addition to the progresses made at the cancer center, the BTF co-founders traveled to Dharan, Nepal and signed a historic memorandum of understanding with the BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences, Dharan, Nepal to provide mutual support to each other to develop cancer and palliative care services in the region.
