The Department of Pathology at Northwell Health has a high volume of gastrointestinal, pancreatic and hepatobiliary pathology cases. This case volume ranges in diversity from routine specimens to highly complex, unusual and challenging cases. Cases also include consultations from across the larger New York area as well as consultations on difficult cases from other peripheral hospitals within the health system. The annual GI pathology case volume is about 28,000 cases. There are eight full time gastrointestinal pathology fellowship trained pathologists. In addition to the clinical practice, the GI pathology subspecialty is significantly involved with pathology residency training, GI fellows teaching and interdisciplinary tumor boards.
