Pathology

When the urologist feels that it is necessary to perform a biopsy, based a patient’s clinical history, symptoms, physical exam and/or laboratory results, tissue samples are sent to our pathology laboratory for processing. The urologist may also order a urine cytology test if needed. A board certified pathologist, looks at the tissue or urine under a microscope to determine if disease is present.

The Urology Center of Spartanburg Department of Pathology began operations in May of 2007. It was the first clinician practice owned pathology laboratory in South Carolina. All biopsy and urine cytology specimens are processed and diagnosed in-house by a highly trained technical staff and a board-certified pathologist.

  Pathology

An average of 600 prostate biopsy cases, 500 bladder biopsy cases and 1500 urine cytology cases are processed per year.

There are several advantages to an in-house pathology laboratory:

  • There is an increased interaction between the urologist and the pathologist. This allows both doctors to have a more complete picture of the patient’s overall condition leading to better patient care.
  • There is more control over the specimen by processing it on site. This allows the same quality standards that are applied to all other aspects of patient care at the Urology Center of Spartanburg to be applied to biopsy and urine cytology specimens.
  • The urologist receives a comprehensive picture (from the patient's medical history, office examination, and office procedures) of the necessary steps in providing complete urological care.
