UPMC Department of Urology: Caring for You During COVID-19

The UPMC Department of Urology strives to provide world-class care for male and female urinary tract diseases and male reproductive organs.

That commitment to our patients remains strong during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are continuing to provide the expert diagnoses and treatment you expect, while also doing everything we can to protect you from the coronavirus.

If you need an office visit or treatment, we are here for you.

Your Safety Is Our Top Priority at the UPMC Department of Urology

The UPMC Department of Urology provides diagnosis and treatment for many conditions in men, women, and children.

It is safe to make an appointment for an office visit or a treatment. We are following all recommendations from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • We screen patients and staff for COVID-19 exposure and symptoms.
  • We have expanded our testing capacity for the coronavirus. Find out more about our testing procedures.
  • We require all adults and children over 2 years old to wear facemasks at all times inside all UPMC facilities.
  • We use hospital-grade disinfectants to extensively clean all of our facilities. We are especially focused on sanitizing high-touch areas like countertops and doorknobs.
  • Our health care workers can provide expert care for any of your medical needs. We have enough supplies of masks, gowns, gloves, and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep them — and you — safe.
  • To protect our patients and staff, and to limit the potential for the spread of infectious disease, we currently are restricting visitors and volunteers at UPMC facilities. See our updated policy.

Your safety is our top priority when you visit. We have updated our facility policies to provide necessary protection to patients and staff, rolling out extensive precautions.

Before your appointment at the UPMC Department of Urology, talk to your doctor about what to expect on your visit, including:

You must wear a facemask to enter our facilities and continue to wear it throughout the building. We also ask that you follow COVID-19 preventive measures, such as regular handwashing and proper social distancing.
