Department of Pathology Diagnostic Services

Genitourinary Pathology

The members of the Division of Surgical Pathology have expertise in Genitourinary pathology. This includes diseases of the prostate, bladder, ureters, urethra, testis and non-medical kidney disease. The pathologists provide a full-range of diagnostic services including interpretation of biopsies, and comprehensive evaluation of surgical resections with an aim toward providing information regarding possible additional therapy and overall prognosis. A broad array of state of the art techniques are available, and are used, when appropriate, in conjunction with routine histopathology. The adjunctive tests include immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics.

All difficult or unusual cases are discussed at a daily conference attended by the entire Attending staff. In addition, selected cases are presented and reviewed at multidisciplinary conferences which include members of the Departments of Urology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Radiology.

The Division of Surgical Pathology can function as the primary diagnostic laboratory in the interpretation of small biopsy specimens collected at physician's private offices. In addition, the Division can provide second opinion consultation services, reviewing slides prepared elsewhere.

The members of the Division of Surgical Pathology have an in depth understanding of the clinical management of diseases of the urinary and male genital tracts, and emphasize clinical pathologic correlations when providing consultations.
