Surgical Pathology Diagnostic Services

The Stanford Surgical Pathology Service provides complete diagnostic services in adult and pediatric Surgical Pathology to the Stanford Hospital and Clinics, the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System. 

We strive to:

At the Stanford University Medical Center, approximately 31,000 surgical specimens originating from the Stanford Health Services Operating Rooms, Stanford University Clinics, other area clinics, or from the private and independent Palo Alto Surgicenter are accessioned yearly.

Another 13,000 cases are reviewed either when patients, whose pathology specimens were originally examined elsewhere, are referred to Stanford for treatment or when other pathologists refer difficult cases for second opinions.

At the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS), over 8000 surgical specimens are examined annually. These originate from the operating rooms and clinics. The areas that are most active are Dermatology, Gastroenterology and Urology.

The VAPAHCS Pathology Service is under the direction of Dr. Robert V. Rouse , Chief of Service.
