Department of Pathology

Department of Pathology

Department of Pathology has been an integral part of BP Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital, since its inauguration as a Day Care Center on 11 October 1995. Our motto is to provide cutting edge diagnostic pathology services while achieving qualitative outcomes in pathology research and education. Pathology services were started with routine laboratory tests, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology and Bone marrow examination. After indoor services were started on 20th July 1999, pathology services were also expanded. Now we have our own separate two storied building allocated for Department of Pathology.Responsibilities of the department are immense to the services of the cancer patient in rendering final diagnosis, assist in evaluation of prognostic factors, facilitate supportive services during treatment and help in assessment of recurrences or persistence of disease. The scope and volume of the clinical services provided by the Pathology Department has continued to grow steadily in the past years. We are very proud to be associated with longstanding excellence inpatient care, education and research; and continue to build on these rich traditions into the future.
