Pathology Report Vs. Surgical Report

Hi Ladies,

I have my 6 week check up coming up on Tuesday. I plan to request the surgery report but have noticed it referred to as the sugical report and the pathology report.

Are both of these reports the same thing or two different ones?

Thanks for the help.

Pathology Report Vs. Surgical Report

Hi Teewee!

These are two different reports. The surgical report tells all that took place during surgery. The pathology report is from the pathologist and tells what his/her findings are from the tissues removed from your body.

Pathology Report Vs. Surgical Report

Hi, TeeWee,

The surgical report (sometimes referred to as the operative report) and the pathology report are two different things.

The surgical report explains the exact procedure which was followed during your surgery. For example, the type of incision made, and the order in which things were done, will be in the surgical report.

After tissuesand organ(s) are surgically removed, they're sent to a lab. A pathologist examines these items, visually and microscopically, and determines their weight, and whether they were normal or diseased. These results are in the pathology report.

Hope this helps.
