The subspecialty of surgical pathology which deals with the diagnosis and characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the digestive tract and accessory organs, such as the pancreas and liver.
Digestive diseases affect 1 in 5 Americans and accounts for more than 50 million physician visits, close to 25 million endoscopic diagnostic procedures and more than 20 million G.I. specimens directed to pathologists.
The request for G.I. diagnostic procedures continue to increase, driven by the increase of G.I. disease and resulting need for colorectal cancer screening in the aging U.S. population.
Our team of board certified pathologists have completed the necessary specialized training to view, assess and diagnose G.I. diseases. Our team works hand in hand with the clinical physician to interpret the results and offer treatment plans/future care.
