The Neuropathology Laboratory offers diagnostic services to aid in the identification of diseases affecting the brain, spinal cord, muscle, and nerves. Our neuropathologists work closely with clinicians to provide the most accurate diagnostic information and determine the best course of treatment for their patients.
Biopsies are performed on specimens taken during surgical procedures as well as post mortem evaluations. Special procedures performed at our laboratory ensure that the most complete diagnostic information is provided to referring physicians
A comprehensive enzyme and immunohistochemical panel is used for evaluation of neuromuscular diseases, inflammatory myopathies, dystrophies and metabolic and storage disorders. Electron microscopy and FISH are also available to ensure that the most accurate and comprehensive diagnostic information is provided to clinicians.
Our board certified neuropathologists provide expert consultative services for the identification and diagnosis of neurologic disorders in adult and pediatric patients.
Specimens and slides should be accompanied by a Surgical Pathology Requisition, complete clinical history and patient demographic information sent to:
