World Brain Tumor Day 2023

Brain Tumor


World Brain Tumor Day is celebrated every year on June 8th to raise awareness about brain tumors. Timely recognition and treatment play a crucial role in successfully curing most brain tumors. Several factors influence the outcome of treatment, including age, tumor grade, size, and location.

To ensure exceptional management of brain tumors, we have established the “National Brain Tumor Center” at Bir Hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal. The primary objective of this center is to deliver outstanding care to brain tumor patients, conduct research on brain tumors, and raise awareness among the general population. A team of multidisciplinary specialists, including neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiologists, oncologists, pathologists, and various other experts, collaborate to provide comprehensive care. Our ultimate aim is to offer a standard of care that maximizes positive outcomes for all patients.

We envision the National Brain Tumor Center as a beacon of hope, supporting patients and their families throughout their treatment journey. By combining the expertise of various medical professionals, we strive to provide individualized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Our center is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and advanced diagnostic tools, ensuring accurate diagnoses and effective treatment strategies.

In addition to providing top-notch medical care, our center emphasizes research on brain tumors. We aim to contribute to the scientific understanding of brain tumors, leading to improved treatment options and enhanced patient outcomes. By actively participating in clinical trials and collaborating with international research institutions, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and innovation in the field of brain tumor management.

Creating awareness about brain tumors is another vital aspect of our mission. Through educational campaigns, community outreach programs, and partnerships with advocacy groups, we strive to enhance public understanding of brain tumors, their signs and symptoms, and the importance of early detection. By fostering a supportive environment and empowering patients with knowledge, we hope to improve outcomes and foster a sense of solidarity among those affected by brain tumors.

At the National Brain Tumor Center, our dedicated team of experts works tirelessly to provide the highest standard of care to brain tumor patients. We believe in a patient-centered approach, ensuring that each individual receives personalized attention, compassionate support, and the best available treatment options. Our collective efforts are geared towards transforming the lives of patients and their families, inspiring hope, and ultimately conquering brain tumors.

On this World Brain Tumor Day, let us join hands in raising awareness, supporting research, and advocating for better treatment options. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of those affected by brain tumors, offering them hope, healing, and a brighter future.
