Bone & Soft Tissue Pathology
The Bone & Soft Tissue Pathology team, composed of one pathologist for the Yale New Haven Hospital and Saint Raphael Campus site and one pathologist for Bridgeport Hospital, provides consultative services for all clinicians concerned with disease of the musculoskeletal system.
At the Bone & Soft Tissue Pathology Service, we examine all diagnostic and resection specimens using gross, microscopic, and advanced techniques to probe protein expression and genetic alterations harbored in the patient’s somatic tissues. The data resulting from examination of the specimens is often interpreted in the context of the clinical presentation and the results of diagnostic imaging studies. For complex tumor cases, a weekly multidisciplinary tumor board is held to make informed decisions on treatment and follow up of the patient.
