What is Surgical Pathology?

It is the study of tissue removed from living patients during a surgery or biopsy to diagnose a disease. Typically, the pathologist uses a microscope to examine the cells in conjunction with the patient’s history to come to a final diagnosis. Below are just some of the cancers I specialize in:

  • Breast Cancer

  • Prostate Cancer

  • Lung Cancer

  • Pancreatic Cancer

  • Brain Cancer

  • Colon Cancer

  • Thyroid Cancer

  • Bone and Muscle Cancer

  • Uterine Cancer

  • Ovarian Cancer

  • Skin Cancer



“I was sent results about my brain tumor without any explanation. I was feeling so hopeless and scared until Dr. Favia looked over my results. She helped me understand my diagnosis with compassion and answered my many frantic questions patiently and thoroughly. She helped empower me during a very vulnerable time, and for that I am forever grateful. I still go to her with my blood work and seek her guidance as I undergo treatment. I can’t imagine doing this without her help.”
