The Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Pathology Service provides expert diagnostic interpretations of challenging liver and pancreas cases.
Our pathologists diagnose nearly 7,500 liver and pancreas cases every year, which include diverse intraoperative consultations, high-complexity patients, and more than 150 Whipple procedures.A core tenet of our consultation service incorporates histologic features with clinical data for an integrated, highly-informative diagnostic interpretation and report. The in-depth expertise of our staff and their understanding of hepatobiliary and pancreatic pathology translates into consultation reports that are useful, informative, and educational to other pathologists and clinicians, and can be used to safely and effectively guide patient care.
Each of our pathologists has expertise in the diagnostic interpretation of medical liver disease and liver transplantation. Our service regularly collaborates with the surgeons and hepatologists within the Cleveland Clinic Liver Transplant Program who treat approximately 160 patients each year.
