Pathology

Pathology is the branch of medicine that assesses the effects of disease on the body. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital – through the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the Department of Pathology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center – provides a full range of diagnostic and assessment services. The Departments provide microscopic examinations of tissue samples, blood tests, drug monitoring, viral studies, body fluid analyses, and other tests, with a wide range of subspecialty areas. The specialties include hematopatholgy, breast pathology, dermatopathology, cytopathology and aspiration biopsy, renal pathology, special hematology and coagulation tests, and perinatal and pediatric pathology.

At NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia, in addition to normal pathology services, the Department of Pathology works closely with the Department of Neurology at the the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain. This interdisciplinary Institute was created to develop the means to identify individuals at risk of Alzheimer's disease, as well as to devise new therapies to prevent or delay disorders of the aging brain.

In addition to expert consultations, comprehensive laboratory services, and state-of-the-art laboratories, the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell features a new, completely automated Robotics Laboratory that ensures accurate and precise chemical, hematological, and immunoassay procedures.
