Digestive Disorders Center
The Digestive Disorders Center is a multidisciplinary resource with a comprehensive approach. We specialize in gender-based differences to meet the unique healthcare needs of women. The center is dedicated to the Womancare philosophy, where all women are placed directly at the center of their healthcare delivery system, enabling them to make informed and educated choices.
Our center collaborates with the Digestive Disorders Center of UPMC, which is ranked among the top programs of its kind in 2007 by U.S. News & World Report. By combining these resources, the Digestive Disorders Center offers patients clinical trials using the latest therapies that are not available elsewhere in the region.

At Magee, physicians are advancing the knowledge and understanding of digestive disorders in women and are equally expert in the treatment of men with digestive disorders.
