Pathological Anatomy 

 Anatomía Patología de Occidente S.C.

Engaged with health services, Hospital San Javier provides you with a histopathology area where cell changes are investigated in relation to a specific anatomical area. Different types of biopsies are made aimed to identify malign and benign tumors and their likely behavior, as the possible treatment for a patient depends on this to succeed in recovering its health.
