About Our Check-Up Programs

Examinations and medical examinations serve to take care of our well-being. The prevention of disease has two fundamental stages: the primary one is to improve the state of health through the reduction or elimination of risk factors for certain diseases. The secondary one includes screenings thanks to which it is possible to identify any pathologies or disorders arising and intervene with the appropriate treatments.

The check-up programs you can benefit from at UPMC Centers include prevention through visits, and diagnostic tests and pathways that improve nutrition and lifestyle.

In particular, the check-ups are divided into:

  • Medical.
  • Assessment of risk factors with the specialist doctor.

  • Development of a personalized prevention program.
