The anatomical pathology (AP) department is situated on the ground floor of the clinic.

It consists of two full-time specialist anatomical pathology technicians and two pathologists, one of who works full-time. The department's timetable is from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. without interruption.

The preparation of the anatomical pathology reports is based on the diagnostic protocols of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

►FNA (fine needle aspiration biopsy) is performed in A&E and/or in the operating theatres.

►The results must be collected from the Clinic's main reception desk.

►For emergencies: 24 hours a day, all year round. Appointments are only necessary for special techniques.

We perform tests on:

  • Emergency patients
  • Outpatients undergoing surgical procedures or other treatment
  • Inpatients

Portfolio of services:
  • Diagnostic anatomical pathology
  • Transcription of reports
  • Biochemical immunology
  • Functional tests
  • Cultures
  • Study of all body fluids
  • Study of cytologies, punctures, biopsies and special techniques
  • Haematology
  • Gynaecological
  • Serial scrape smear
  • Puncture of deep structures
  • Puncture of superficial structures 
  • Biopsy
  • Surgical specimen
  • Intraoperative

We have all the necessary technical resources to perform a wide variety of procedures. We also have a large panel of experts to ensure the correct classification of different conditions for diagnostic and prognostic purposes and to decide on the right treatment:

  • Hormone receptors
  • Immunofluorescence
  • Special techniques (PAS, Reticulin, Giemsa)
  • Immunohistochemistry

Histological Studies:

Approximately 3500 studies are performed each year, many of them involving great diagnostic complexity and often requiring complementary studies to be performed.

There has therefore been an increase in the number of intra-operative studies and deep organ punctures, both of which require the presence of a pathologist.


Approximately 3000 studies are performed each year, which are of great diagnostic complexity, as is also the case with surgical pathology.
