Noteworthy: Marinis was board-certified in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. The new certification was created this year to recognize expertise in a new niche in OB/GYN and urology care focused on women's complex pelvic conditions, lower urinary tract disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction. It's the first subspecialty area to be accredited by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the American Board of Urology. Marinis earned the certification after passing a four-hour exam.

Age: 45

Residence: Mt. Lebanon

Family: wife Myrsini, infant daughter Myrto.

Occupation: A native of Athens, Greece, Marinis, a gynecologist and obstetrician, started working this year at Canonsburg Allegheny General, part of the Allegheny Health Network. He previously worked in New York, South Carolina and Texas.

Education: Medical degree from the National University of Athens School of Medicine.

Quote: “This new certification is important. It ensures that women with these sort of issues will be taken care of with the highest level of specialty.”
