Meera R. Hameed, MD

I am a pathologist with expertise in surgical pathology, molecular pathology, and clinical cytogenetics.

As a surgical pathologist, my particular expertise is bone and soft tissue (musculoskeletal) pathology. I work very closely with my clinical colleagues — including surgeons, radiologists, and medical oncologists. This collaboration has given me an in-depth understanding of clinical situations and has provided me the opportunity to participate as a team member with my clinical colleagues. I am an Invited Member of the International Skeletal Society — an organization of radiologists, pathologists, and surgeons who meet yearly to discuss rare and unusual presentations of the various bone and soft tissue neoplasms. I am also interested in teaching, and am a course co-director for orthopedic pathology at meetings of the U.S. and Canadian Academy of Pathology.
