Know What’s Happening Inside You!
Our body continues to evolve. Sometimes, the change goes deeper than the outlook, and this is what you need to look out for.
An abnormal change in your body’s tissues can form tumors.
With a biopsy, you can find out the cause, bringing you one step closer to a quicker cure.
Our in-house ARNP, Christie Pinolini, provides specialized, efficient, and effective biopsies to further you on the path to health.
What Is A Biopsy?
A biopsy is a simple procedure that extracts a small sample of fluid, cells, or tissues from a body area of suspicion, to further analyze and test.
When we obtain the sample, it is observed under a microscopic lens to find any abnormalities, pre-cancerous cells, or other causes for concern.
We conduct three types of biopsies:
Needle biopsies are the most common, and we perform them with utmost care and precision.
Local anesthesia is used to numb the area and the pain of needle insertion is nothing more than a slight pinch.
Stereotactic biopsies are concerned with computer imaging and therefore remain painless for you.
In rare cases that require surgical or open biopsies, we use general anesthesia to induce sleep and keep you free from feeling anything.
A Seamless Procedure
No medical jargon, no complicated language – we make the process as easy and simple for you as possible.
Here’s how our system works:
Our ARNP may prohibit consuming some medication (e.g., blood thinners) before the procedure.
The type of biopsy is decided – Needle, Stereotactic, or Surgical – and performed with care.
The biopsy region is cleaned and bandaged to prevent blood flow, and a post-care routine is suggested.
While every case is different, most biopsy results can be obtained within 2-3 days.
If your case is slightly complicated, it can take up to 7-10 days also.
Our expert, Christie Pinolini, will guide you about results post-biopsy and answer any questions you may have.
