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.
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.
