Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology
Our bones and soft tissues are what allow us to stand and move around, and they also protect our organs.
Bones, fat, muscle, and connective tissue make up a large portion of our bodies. Cancer, blood diseases, arthritis, and many infections can profoundly affect these tissues and our health.
The Role of the Pathologist
If your doctor suspects that you may have a disease affecting the bones or soft tissues, he or she may obtain a biopsy specimen which will be sent to our specialized pathologists.
After microscopic examination, we will formulate a diagnosis so your doctor can proceed with the best treatment plan.
