We have brought the first issue of “Eastern Green Neurosurgery”. The aim of this news letter is not just to give the success stories of neurosurgical cases at B & C Hospital; rather, to give the actual mirror of the neurosurgical care being provided and create an academic plateform.
The present face of the department is as follow:
- Dr. Pankaj Raj Nepal: Head of Department
- Dr. Karuna Tamrakar (Karki): Consultant Neurosurgeon
- Dr. Dinesh K. Thapa: Registrar in Neurosurgery
- Dr. Birat Thapa Magar: senior Medical officer
- Dr. Dipesh Neupane: Medical Officer
- Dr. Srijana Neupane: Medical Officer
- Dr. Arbindra Kumar Yadav: Medical Officer
- Dr. Manohar Kumar Ray: Medical Officer.
By working in this part of the world, we are exposed to the challenge of the variety of neurosurgical cases from trauma of head and spine to the complex tumor and vascular neurosurgical cases. Teaching of Prof. Upendra P. Devkota seems to be very effective to me as even with this small neurosurgical team we are able to produce accepted result when compared to the results of better centers of the world.
Though, it has already been a year for me running neurosurgical department in this institute as a head of department, but the department was not established by me, but rather by the team from Annapurna Neurological Institue and Allied Sciences (ANIAS) in early months of 2015 which was led by Prof. Dr. Basanta Panta.
B&C Hospital is a up growing huge project of the far eastern Nepal which is a 750 bedded with 50 bedded ICU. Almost all the faculties and facilities are available including 1.5tesla MRI, 16 slice CT scanner. Now the new project of “ Eastern Cancer Hospital” is running and probably will be completed soon. There are seven operating theatre running smoothly, with one dedicated theatre for the complex neurosurgical cases which harbors the Pentero 900 microscope.
