Our highly skilled pathologists are essential members of the Saratoga Hospital care team. They typically work behind the scenes, examining tissues and other samples to figure out what’s causing your symptoms—and to help guide your treatment.
Experts at Diagnosis
Pathologists play a critical role in diagnosing disease and helping physicians monitor how well patients are responding to treatment. Cancer, diabetes, blood disorders, infections, and other serious conditions are all diagnosed by pathologists. The information that pathologists provide to other physicians is essential in ensuring that patients receive the best possible care.
All of our pathologists are board certified by the American Board of Pathology and have subspecialty certification in anatomical and clinical pathology, cytopathology, or hematopathology. Our pathologists provide comprehensive services, including:
- Anatomical pathology—examination of organs and tissues.
- Clinical pathology—laboratory analysis of bodily fluids and microorganisms, as well as blood banking.
- Cytopathology—examination of single cells and clusters of cells.
- Hematopathology—examination of blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and certain organs.
They also work with outside specialists as needed.
