Gynecologic Pathology Diagnostic Services

The Gynecologic Pathology Diagnostic Service is a fundamental component in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the female genital organs at Yale-New Haven Hospital and Smilow Cancer Hospital. Our pathologists are subspecialty-trained and highly experienced with a passion for patient care. Our service encounters a high volume of complex, neoplastic gynecologic surgical specimens from the Yale Gynecologic Oncology Service and biopsy specimens from many outpatient clinics in the greater New Haven area. Beyond routine tissue diagnosis, team members actively participate in the real-time decision making process for patient management including daily intraoperative consultation, weekly Gynecologic Tumor Conferences and many on-going cancer clinical trial programs. Currently, two faculty members function as the center pathologists in the study design and patient selection for the Herceptin trial program, a multi-institutional effort led by Yale Gynecologic Oncology Service in search for alternative therapy for endometrial serous carcinoma. For consultation diagnostic services, we provide diagnostic expertise for pathologists throughout the United States and abroad who submit cases for second opinion. The Gynecologic Pathology Service also reviews a large number of specimens from patients who are referred to Yale for further treatment options. As a leading institution, we have a national and international reputation as experts in the diagnosis of gestational trophoblastic diseases (complete and partial hydatidiform moles, gestational trophoblastic tumors) and endometrial cancer. We are among the few institutions to offer molecular genotyping as part of the routine diagnostic algorithm for molar pregnancies.
