Gynecologic pathology

Overview

The gynecologic pathology services at Northwell Health provide comprehesive diagnostics using specimens from the uterus, cervix, vulva, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries. We provide timely and accurate interpretation of endometrial and cervical biopsies/curettages, resection specimens (from procedures such as hysterectomies and oophorectomies), as well as rendering expert opinion on referred cases. Through a rigorous quality assurance program, we maintain integrity of specimen identification and diagnostic accuracy.

Experience

Gynecologic pathology service reflects many years of cumulative experience in the field. The pathology department handles a large number of gynecologic cases, both neoplastic (tumor-related) and non-neoplastic diseases. We emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients with diseases of the female genital tract, and work closely with gynecologic-oncologic surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists. Experts for cross-specialty consultations are available to collaborate on the diagnosis of complex cases. Correlation with cytology and biopsies enhance overall diagnostic accuracy.
