Gastrointestinal & Liver Pathology

The UNMC Department of Pathology and Microbiology offers special expertise in the diagnosis of infectious, inflammatory and neoplastic diseases involving the esophagus, stomach and intestinal tract. The section is headed by Dr. Audrey Lazenby and those desiring consultative diagnostic assistance should contact  her at 402-559-4186.

The department has four faculty members with extensive experience in the diagnostic evaluation of liver and biliary tract diseases. This includes non-neoplastic medical liver biopsies, as well as primary hepatic neoplasms and gall bladder and bile duct specimens. Available resources include a suitable array of histochemical and immunohistochemical stains, as well as electron microscopy for selected cases. This group also has twenty-five years of experience with liver allograft pathology (see transplantation pathology section). The group is led by Dr. Stan Radio and assisted by Drs. Geoffrey TalmonBenjamin Swanson and James Wisecarver.  We would welcome the opportunity to assist with any challenging cases that you may encounter. Please contact us by calling 402-559-4186 and asking for the liver pathologist on service.
