Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC Specialty Services Now Provided at UPMC Passavant

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 5, 2010 – Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC now provides a range of specialty services at UPMC Passavant, bringing clinical expertise closer to home for women who live in the North Hills.

“By offering high-quality women’s specialty care services at a tertiary care facility such as UPMC Passavant, we are able to provide our most advanced care to even more patients,” said Leslie C. Davis, president, Magee-Womens Hospital. “We are excited to partner with UPMC Passavant, a facility that has grown in recent years from a well-respected and deeply rooted community hospital into an advanced care center.”

The women’s specialty services provided at UPMC Passavant include:

Gynecologic Oncology

The Magee-Womens Gynecologic Cancer Program of UPMC Cancer Centers, part of the Women’s Cancer Program at Magee, is on the leading edge of research, diagnosis and treatment for cancers of the uterus, ovaries, cervix, vulva and fallopian tubes.


A subspecialty within Obstetrics and Gynecology, urogynecology is dedicated to the treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders such as urinary or fecal incontinence and prolapse (bulging) of the vagina, bladder and/or the uterus. 

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery uses the latest techniques to treat many of the gynecologic problems that women experience. Minimally invasive procedures can result in less postoperative pain and blood loss, as well as shorter recovery times.

“In addition to offering highly specialized medical and surgical services, we also are providing individualized treatment plans to address specific health care needs of women,” said Robert Edwards, M.D., executive vice chairman, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Magee.

Magee and UPMC Passavant are continuing to explore programs to bring additional women’s specialty services to the North Hills.
