The Department of Oral Pathology, specializing exclusively in the area of Oral & Maxillofacial pathology offers consultation and tissue diagnostic and reporting service to the medical and dental communities. We are currently serving the general dental practitioners and hospitals around West and East Godavari districtsalong with catering our hospital needs. In addition to regular Diagnostic and reporting services, the department offers its state of the art equipment and expertise in providing support for Research activities for postgraduates of other colleges


Tissue diagnostic and reporting service:


Request and sending the biopsy

You may download, complete and send the biopsy form to our address. Please package biopsies in 10% neutral buffered formalin sealed in leak free containers and include your patient's details.

Radiographs (IOPA, OPG, CBCT etc.) and/or clinical images often are useful or necessary in rendering a diagnosis.  Duplicate or original radiographic images of diagnostic quality may be sent with biopsies.

Microscopic Consultation (Second Opinion)

We are glad to review any challenging histopathology cases. We understand that interpretation of oral biopsy samples by general pathologists may be sometimes challenging and require interpretation of clinical information that is specific to the oral cavity. If your clinical impression is inconsistent with a histopathologic diagnosis rendered at a local hospital, or if you require support in the evaluation of your specimen, it would be appropriate to request our review of the slides. You may send the diagnostic material (glass slides and/or tissue block) to our department.

To request a consultation, please download , complete and include necessary glass slides and/or tissue blocks, radiographic images, clinical images, and outside pathology reports.
