UPMC Passavant Gastrointestinal Services

Gastrointestinal (GI) Center

Completed in 2012, the new UPMC Passavant GI Center was designed to be the best in the region in patient-centered care, patient satisfaction, state-of-the-art services, equipment and technology, and excellence in patient safety and quality outcomes.
The center includes:
  • Twenty-six private, comfortable rooms, used for both pre-procedure and recovery.
  • Eight procedure rooms.
  • A dedicated pulmonary/bronchoscopy suite.
  • A spacious, comfortable waiting area for family members.  
Two nursing stations and a computerized patient tracking system help physicians quickly determine the status and location of each patient. The new design even makes cleaning and disinfecting the scopes utilized in the procedures more efficient.

  • BARRX procedure that destroys pre-cancerous cells in the esophagus with radio frequency ablation.
  • Bravo esophageal pH test for evaluation and treatment of acid reflux disease.
