Head, Neck & Endocrine Pathology
The Endocrine, Head and Neck Pathology Service specializes in the evaluation of thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, head and neck diseases including those of the oral cavity, larynx and pharynx, eye & ear, salivary glands, jaw & skull bones, and soft tissue. The team renders diagnoses on a little over 6000 cases each year. The practice strongly leans toward oncologic pathology due to referral bias and the tertiary nature of the hospital. The practice is supported by a well-appointed immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology laboratories, the former carrying a repertoire of more than 200 antibodies for diagnosis and prognosis. We offer HPV testing by PCR, and EBV testing by in-situ hybridization on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded cancer tissues.
