Surgical Pathology Services

Surgical pathology is considered a subdivision within the broader area of anatomic pathology.  Anatomic pathology also includes cytopathology and autopsy pathology.  Surgical pathology is often further divided into organ-specific subspecialty areas such as gastrointestinal pathology, breast pathology, dermatopathology, head and neck pathology, and gynecologic pathology to name a few.



Pathology Associates offers a host of anatomic pathology services, including routine surgical pathology, frozen sections/intraoperative consultations, and non-gyn cytopathology.  Courier services are available for specimen pickup and delivery of supplies.  Gross examination, tissue processing/histotechnology, and microscopic examination are all performed at our CLIA certified and CAP accredited laboratory facility.  In addition, we perform routine special stains and immunohistochemistry, including prognostic markers for breast cancer.  We can also guide the selection and send-out of tissue blocks for specialized molecular testing.



Our pathologists are available for on-site intraoperative frozen sections and consultation when requested.  We are always available to assist with the proper triage and processing of tissue specimens before or during collection.  Contact us to learn more about our anatomic pathology services.
