Pulmonary Pathology

Specializing in the Study and Diagnosis of Lung and Thoracic Diseases

The pulmonary pathologists at Pacific Pathology Partners study lung tissue to evaluate the presence of disease and assist in therapeutic interventions.

Various disorders affect the lungs, including lung cancer, breathing problems like asthma, and infections like pneumonia and influenza. Pulmonary pathology is a subspecialty of pathology that deals with the diagnosis and characterization of lung diseases. Pacific Pathology Partners provides a comprehensive diagnostic service covering all aspects of pulmonary pathology, from neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases to pleura and mediastinum diseases. Our pulmonary pathologists employ a full range of routine and specialized techniques to evaluate biopsies and resections of the lung, pleura, thymus, and other mediastinal specimens. We aim to provide physicians with rapid and accurate pathology results as well as world-class consultations and second opinions.

Our objective is to make comprehensive, state-of-the-art pulmonary pathology services available to both adult and pediatric patients around the world. Our lung pathology team is subspecialty trained in pulmonary pathology and includes a world-renowned mesothelioma expert. In addition, we maintain collaborative relationships with pathologists who are internationally recognized in the diagnosis of lung tumors (carcinoma and mesothelioma) and interstitial lung diseases.

Not only are we diagnosticians, we also partner with physicians to help them make treatment decisions and educate their patients with the goal of achieving the best possible health outcomes. Our pulmonary pathologists are always available for direct consultation with both patients and clinicians.
