In the Pathology Department surgical pathology is performed on biopsies and surgical pieces obtained in the hospital and/or sent from other hospitals in the city and from other states in the Country. 

Immunohistochemistry is the use of antibodies to mark organic-cellular structures, molecules, hormones, infectious agents, tumor markers, prognoses and for the treatment of tumors. We have more than 100 individual markers for the formation of diagnostic and prognostic panels. 

This methodology is carried out in an automated manner with equipment using robotics for precise measurements, dispensing and incubation times in an orderly manner and in order to obtain reliable results with proven repetition. In this manner, sensitivity and specificity are adequately measured.


In Gynecological Cytopathology conventional cervical-vaginal studies are carried out, including liquid based cytology, cytology of diverse liquids through the liquid based modality and the formation of cell block cytology.

In the Pathology Department Molecular Diagnoses are carried out such as lymphoma, determination of HPV (human papilloma virus), cancer of the mammary gland and molecular tests in tissue with the FISH method (fluorescent in situ hybridization). 


With Molecular Pathology methodology we can study the   normality,
variations and mutations of the molecule of DNA in a global manner,
in  a  chromosome,  demonstrating  an  increase  in  the  number  or
identifying which of them are totally or partially affected. This is used
to identify specific illnesses.




The Pathology Department is located on the First Floor. Appointments should be made from Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
