Dedicated to the womancare philosophy

Center for Women’s Digestive Health

Women often experience digestive disorders quite differently than men. Hormonal and anatomical differences — as well as the effects of normal aging, pregnancy, and menopause — can impact both the severity and symptoms of gastrointestinal (GI) illness for women.

The Center for Women’s Digestive Health is a collaboration between the UPMC Digestive Disorders Center and Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC to provide GI care that’s personalized for the needs of women.

Our experts specialize in treating women with GI conditions and complications that can arise during pregnancy, following bariatric surgery, or as a result of other digestive disorders, such as endometriosis.

Why Choose UPMC's Center for Women’s Digestive Health?

Here’s how the Center for Women’s Digestive Health delivers specialty GI services that’s personalized for the needs of women:

  • We’re dedicated to the womancare philosophy, which places women at the center of their health care delivery. It’s personalized medicine that empowers women to make informed and educated wellness choices.
  • Our cross-disciplinary approach to care combines the expertise of gastroenterologists, urogynecologists, gynecologists, surgeons, obstetricians, and other specialists.
  • Because of our affiliation with Magee-Womens Hospital, we can provide seamless, coordinated care in one center with a focus on women.
  • We use the latest technology to diagnose and treat digestive disorders in women.
  • We support women throughout many stages of life, including during pregnancy, which can often exacerbate existing GI illness or cause new symptoms as a result of hormonal changes.
