Excellence in Gynaecological Pathology  GYNAE IMAGE 1

Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology is delighted to have extended our commitment to you and now offers a unique centre of excellence in gynaecological pathology - GynaePath. 

GynaePath is a specialist gynaecological pathology unit within, and supported by, the full resources of Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology, Australia's largest pathology laboratory. It is essentially a boutique 'practice within a practice', solely dedicated to excellence in gynaecological histopathology and cytology.

GynaePath uses distinctive, customised, pink request forms and report stationery. All Cervical Screening Tests and gynae histopathology are streamed within the DHM laboratory, processed separately, handled by dedicated staff and reported exclusively with the unique expertise of a team of internationally recognised specialist gynaecological pathologists, spearheaded by Adjunct Professor Annabelle Farnsworth (Director of GynaePath) and Professor Peter Russell.


Specialist Gynaecological Pathologists

The GynaePath concept promotes the pooling and enrichment of specialist expertise, in order to create what is not only the largest specialist gynaecological and reproductive pathology practice in Australia, but also an unparalleled centre of excellence in gynaecological pathology.

GynaePath pathologists are actively involved with numerous professional committees and organisations, forging relationships with clinicians and special interest groups at national and international levels. They are strongly committed to teaching and research, and many hold academic appointments. We have established easy access to this pathologist group - facilitating consultation services for gynaecologists, GPs and women's health practitioners.

All our pathologists are readily available for telephone consultation.
