Anatomic Pathology

Anatomic Pathology Review

Anatomic Pathology (AP) is under the direction of Audrey Lazenby, M.D. (standing in photo above), and consists of twenty pathologists in the sections of surgical, autopsy, renal, liver and transplant pathology, cytopathology, hematopathology, neuropathology and dermatopathology. Our board certified pathologists are experts in their specialized field; moreover, cross-coverage amongst our faculty provides comprehensive service for our consulting physicians and more important, uninterrupted continuity care for our patients.

Each year, the AP division is responsible for the diagnosis of over 40,000 surgical and consult specimens; 25,000 cytopathology specimens and 140 autopsies. In addition to providing service at The Nebraska Medical Center (TNMC), the division provides pathology coverage to the Nebraska Orthopedic Hospital, the Bellevue Medical Center and multiple other clients through the Regional Pathology Services.

Pathologic diagnoses are supported by expertise in immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, electron microscopy, flow cytometry and molecular diagnostic tests. Clinical care activity also includes the staffing multidisciplinary tumor boards and other clinicopathologic conferences. Teaching is a major focus as faculty are actively involved in teaching of medical students; residents and fellows both within and outside the department; and allied health students. Active research efforts span studies in basic science, translational research, diagnosis and classification of clinicopathologic disorders and quality control.
