Department
Surgical Pathology and Cytology

The department of Histopathology is the macroscopic and microscopic examination of tissue samples to diagnose and evaluate disease. It is an integral part of cancer management, from diagnosing the tumor, through to staging and grading of tumor.

The body of work includes, surgical specimens generated at Breach Candy Hospital Trust or received from other hospitals, and review cases of patients whose pathology specimens were originally examined elsewhere and are referred for second opinions. Rapid intraoperative consultations (frozen sections) helps surgeons in charting the proper course during surgery and provide a rapid microscopic analysis of the specimen and establish whether the entire diseased area has been successfully removed during surgery.  The molecular pathology department test offerings include fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). Fluorescent in situ hybridization technique allows for the detection of genetic aberrations including gene copy number, point mutations, small deletions and insertions in an effort to direct molecularly-targeted therapies in many cancers like breast, lung and colon and gastric cancers.
Our outstanding faculty and excellent technical/non technical staff have contributed to the excellent reputation and success of the department earned over many years.

The department is subdivided into functional units:

  • Surgical Histopathology Cytology
  • FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) and Liquid based cytology
  • Cryostat (Frozen) sectioning )
  • Immunohistochemistry with automated immunostainer
  • Molecular Pathology using Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) technique
