Triangle Urology and
Allegheny Health Network
Triangle Urology doctors specialize in the complex urological problems of men and women. They deliver compassionate, state-of-the-art treatment to patients using new and advanced techniques. Triangle Urology serves patients at its office locations and hospitals in 4 counties. It became part of the Allegheny Health Network (AHN) in 2013.
Triangle Urology has roots in the Pittsburgh region that go back to the 1920s. Throughout the years, it’s been helping countless people get back to experiencing life to the fullest. Among them is Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon. Triangle urologist and surgeon John Lyne, MD, helped him win his battle with testicular cancer and get back in the game in 5 weeks.
Leaders in urology
As leaders in their field, Triangle Urology experts continually strive to expand their knowledge and discover new ways of helping patients. They establish programs to advance research on specific conditions. Your doctor will let you know if you might be eligible to participate in one of these programs.
Patients receive care and take part in studies through these centers within several of the Triangle office locations:
A team approach to care
At Triangle Urology, we take a team approach to your care. Depending on your diagnosis, your doctor will collaborate with other specialists and physician assistants to develop and deliver your personalized care plan. We customize your plan according to your preferences, lifestyle, and emotional needs.
In 1991 we began integrating advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants) into our practice. Because of their specialized training in urology, they have made significant contributions to the growth of our program. An advanced practice provider may see you for:
- Office visits
- Counseling to discuss your condition
- Review of lab and X-ray results
- Surgery (as an assistant)
- Postoperative care
Feel free to talk to our advanced practice providers or your doctor if you ever have any questions about your care.

Each day we arrange to have one office location open for same-day appointments. It may not be possible to get a same-day appointment with a specific doctor at your preferred location.
On-call advice in an emergency
If you are already one of our patients and experience a urologic emergency, call 412-281-1757 any time. Our on-call program operates 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. During normal business hours Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., our operators will connect you with one of our offices. After business hours and on weekends and holidays, a professional answering service will help you contact us.
One of our on-call nurses will get back to you within 30 minutes of your phone call to address your needs. If necessary, the nurse will refer you to a doctor on call or direct you to an emergency room. The on-call service is not for refilling medication or scheduling office appointments.
