Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology

Bone and soft tissue pathology provides comprehensive consultative expertise and services relating to disorders in soft tissue and bone. Because of the complexity and difficulty involved in diagnosing bone and soft tissue disorders, as well as the clinical implications of the diagnoses, expert consultation is extremely important in correctly classifying bone and soft tissue tumors. In addition to consultative services, a variety of specialized molecular tests are routinely available.
