Overview
Our doctors

Involving either small surgical biopsies or whole autopsy brains neuropathology refers to the study of diseases of the nervous system tissue. It is in fact a subspecialty of anatomic pathology, neurology, and neurosurgery and ought not to be confused with neuropathy, which refers to disorders of the nerves. The department of neuropathology at BRAINS is committed to diagnosing and curing diseases affecting the brain, making full use of the unprecedented promise unlocked by the explosion in knowledge of basic neurobiology and advances in the understanding of the genetic, molecular and cellular bases of diseases. The department of neuropathology at BRAINS is manned by an extremely strong group of clinically trained neuropathologists who specialize in microscopic diagnosis of brain tumors, neurodegenerative diseases and forensic lesions.
