Pathology Department

Pathology Department

Department of Pathology was started in the year 2004. The department branches into histopathology, cytology, hematology and blood storage unit. We have a dedicated and well trained team to execute our daily routine in these various branches. The histopathology division mainly deals with the grossing and reporting the surgical specimen. We perform ancillary studies including Immunohistochemistry and special stains. Our Daily load includes the Oncopathology, gastrointestinal and gynaecology. The Cytology section deals with fluid studies, Fine needle aspiration cytology and pap smears. Our blood storage unit is 24×7 open and provides few of the main blood components like packed RBCs, Fresh frozen plasma and Cryoprecipitate. We do frozen section reporting for all surgical cases whenever needed. We follow CAP (College of American Pathologist) reporting for all oncology specimen reporting.

We maintain the quality control of our laboratory by being a member of National Cancer Grid [NCG] of TATA Memorial hospital, Mumbai. We periodically participate in the External quality control conducted by AIIMS- Delhi, TATA Memorial hospital- Mumbai and CMC Vellore.
