Pathology Services

Progressive research and the development of new and improved techniques have significantly advanced the treatment of cancer. Many forms of the disease can now be cured, especially if detected early.

Led by John Brooks, MD, the Pathology Department at Pennsylvania Hospital provides sophisticated investigative techniques to detect important diagnostic tumor markers, and, when applicable, prognostic markers as well.

In addition to routine microscopic pathologic analysis, our pathologists commonly perform specialized techniques including immunohistochemical analyses, electron microscopy and molecular studies. All of these insure the highest quality of tumor diagnosis for the patient.

As part of the Abramson Cancer Center's multidisciplinary approach to care, our pathologists work closely with other members of the team caring for you.
