Surgical Pathology

Approximately 45,000 surgical specimens are examined by 39 faculty pathologists every year. We receive specimens from the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics, American Family Children’s Hospital, and Meriter Hospital, in addition to outreach customers. The specimen mix includes routine as well as highly complex surgical cases. We work closely with clinicians in specialty clinics, such as the Women’s Breast Center and the Carbone Cancer Center, as well as with molecular diagnostic and cytogenetic services to provide state-of-the-science prognostic and therapeutic information to clinicians. Twenty surgical pathology residents and two fellows are actively integrated into the workflow of the department, and 7 pathologists’ assistants additionally help with specimen preparation and resident teaching in the gross lab.
