The knowledge of risk factors, epidemiology and etiopathogenesis of diseases is vital for proper diagnosis and treatment. Pathology deals with the diagnosis of disease conditions and is based on the laboratory examination of blood, bone marrow and tissue by cytological and histological methods. The Department of Pathology at Mar Sleeva Medicity Palai caters to the needs of patients by providing diagnostic services in Histopathology, Cytopathology and Haematology with fully automated advanced equipments.
Experienced Pathologists and qualified technicians are the assets of our Pathology Department.

Haematology, Clinical Pathology Laboratory and Blood Bank all provide 24×7 services.
Histopathology is the major cornerstone of accurate diagnosis in Cancer Care. It helps in diagnosing various other neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. The Histopathology division has state of the art facilities for grossing, tissue processing, embedding, microtomy, frozen sections and immunohistochemistry. Interpretation is done by a team of skilled pathologists and our Immunofluorescence facility for skin and renal biopsies will be established in the near future.
