Department and Faculty
The Division of Anatomic Pathology has 40 pathologists, with specialty expertise covering the entire field of surgical pathology. The division is organized around working groups dedicated to specific organ systems, but all members contribute service to general areas as well (e.g., frozen section lab, autopsy, cytology).
The core of the GI/liver working group includes five specialists with interest in gastrointestinal and liver pathology. Several other pathologists also participate in the GI portion of the practice.
The division is supported by a full-service histology and immunohistochemistry laboratory, an active electron microscopy section and a growing in-situ hybridization lab. The hospital surgical pathology practice is unique in its heavy reliance on rapid frozen section diagnosis, providing trainees a valuable opportunity for immediate correlation of gross and microscopic pathology.
The GI/liver pathologists work closely with the clinical division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. It is the largest practice of its kind in the United States. Each year, members of the division perform approximately 30,000 minimally invasive endoscopic procedures in state-of-the-art facilities.
