Urologic Pathology

Our special interest in pathology related to the urogenital system spans both surgical pathology and cytology.

We’ve met the demand associated with increased attention to prostate cancer screening in recent years by aligning our procedures with best practices at institutions such as Johns Hopkins University, which specializes in uropathology.

By preserving some microsections of prostate cores as the basic diagnostic study is produced, we facilitate initial examination at several levels of the core, and can best fulfill potential requests for additional workup.

Our intensive attention to prostate needle biopsy continues with comprehensive reports that include micrograph, anatomic diagram and Gleason scoring.

If further surgical therapy is indicated, we correlate the patient’s prior biopsy and other clinical results with surgical specimen results to help urologists and oncologists coordinate the most effective course of treatment.
