About the UPMC Comprehensive Pulmonary Hypertension Program

We established the UPMC Comprehensive Pulmonary Hypertension Program  with the belief that the best care for pulmonary hypertension (PH) involves a team of doctors, nurses, and experts from a range of disciplines.

We use an integrated, multidisciplinary team approach to effectively diagnose and treat PH.

A Team of Pulmonary Hypertension Specialists

The experts at the Comprehensive Pulmonary Hypertension Program include internationally recognized:

  • Lung specialists (pulmonologists) who are experts in PH
  • Heart specialists (cardiologists)
  • Specially trained nurses and nurse practitioners
  • Heart and lung transplant surgeons

Patient-Centered Care for Pulmonary Hypertension

Our ultimate goal is to provide outstanding, helpful care and support for people with PH and their families.

We follow patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. This ensures a consistent and collaborative plan of care.

If you or someone you care about has symptoms of or suffers from PH, our team will work with your primary care physician, rheumatologist, cardiologist, pulmonologist, and other specialists to diagnose and develop a plan to optimize your health and quality of life.

Our team takes a patient-centered approach, helping with:

  • Hospital and outpatient care
  • Education
  • Advocacy through all phases of PH
