Tissue dissection is a general medical term for the process of cutting apart or separating tissue in a surgical procedure. The process includes a careful operation which removes some structures but preserves others. For example, the removal of cancerous tissue, as in the separation of tissue during a breast biopsy or mastectomy, is a type of tissue dissection. See also: dissection
