Surgical Pathology

The Division of Surgical Pathology is responsible for the histological diagnosis of biopsies and surgical resections of major organ systems. The division includes sections of breast pathology, cardiopulmonary pathology, dermatopathology, gastrointestinal pathology, genitourinary pathology, head and neck pathology, hematopathology, hepatobiliary pathology, renal pathology, skeletal and soft tissue pathology and intraoperative consultation. Each section is staffed by subspecialty experts who serve as consultants for our clinical colleagues in addition to conducting research and teaching medical students, residents and fellows. Residents and fellows rotate in each of the sections and play major roles in all aspects of clinical activities including gross and histological examination of all specimens, final reporting and multidisciplinary conferences. Our long history of subspecialty practice ensures the highest quality in patient care, research and teaching.
