Established in 1982 at the request of two local obstetricians, GYN PATH Services, Inc. (Gynecology Pathology Services) began processing pap smears and biopsies under the direction of Philip A. Miles, M.D., FACOG, FCAP. At the time, Dr. Miles who is board certified in both OB/Gyn and Pathology, was a Lt. Colonel and a Pathologist at William Beaumont Army Medical Center and an educator at Texas Tech.

From our humble beginnings, we have grown to be the largest clinical laboratory in El Paso specializing in Cytology, Virology, Molecular Microbiology and Outpatient Surgical Pathology.

In October 1999, GYN PATH Services began processing the ThinPrep® Pap Test, a new method for the automated preparation of microscope slides for cervical cell samples. GYN PATH Services was the first laboratory in West Texas and Southern New Mexico to offer this revolutionary test to healthcare providers and their patients.

In October 2000, GYN PATH Services began processing the Hybrid Capture II HPV DNA Testing directly from the ThinPrep vial. Currently, we are the only laboratory processing this advanced testing method locally. The Human Papillomavirus Virus (HPV) has been established as the main cause of cervical cancer.

In January 2002, we began processing Chlamydia Trachomatis and Neisseria Gonorrhea (CT/NG) directly from the ThinPrep vial using PCR Amplification. Currently, we are the only laboratory processing CT/NG using PCR locally. This Nobel Prize-winning technology provides healthcare providers with the most accurate diagnoses.

In May 2004, after several requests from our referring physicians and months of extensive research GYN PATH Services announced the availability of processing Group B Streptococcus (GBS) using PCR Amplification. The IDI-Strep B is the first and only test cleared by the FDA that replaces culture to detect GBS in women at the time of delivery or at 35-37 week of pregnancy. Again, we are the only local laboratory offering this advanced testing method for GBS detection.

In June 2004, GYN PATH Services incorporated Imaging-Directed Cytology for use with the ThinPrep Pap Test. GYN PATH is the first and only laboratory in El Paso and the second laboratory in Texas offering this breakthrough technology which combines revolutionary imaging technology with human interpretive expertise.
