Anatomic Pathology

Surgical Pathology

Surgical Pathology is that part of Anatomic Pathology concerned with the study of tissue and organ samples removed from patients, either by biopsy or through a surgical procedure, in an attempt to obtain diagnosis of a lesion or disease. The pathologist is therefore able to advise the attending physician as to the nature of the disease, the prognosis, and the need for additional sampling or exploration.

Our Surgical Pathology Department is staffed with experienced and knowledgeable pathologists and technicians covering a wide variety of specialty types.  Utilizing our approximately 7000 square feet of working space, we process and evaluate over 125,000 specimens per year. 

We work with clients of many sizes, both clinical and research based, and we strive to provide superior quality service on every specimen we accession.
