Specialized Surgeries at Triangle Physicians for Women

Laparoscopy

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that utilizes small incisions to diagnose and treat conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, and pelvic floor disorders. Instead of “open surgery” that requires more extended hospital stays and recovery time, laparoscopic surgery uses a long, thin device called a laparoscope to view pelvic and abdominal organs. In many cases, your doctor can form a diagnosis and treat the problem all during one procedure.

da Vinci Surgery

The da Vinci robotic surgical system is another form of minimally invasive surgery that requires only a few very small holes in the abdomen. The robotic system is operated by a surgeon and consists of a three-dimensional video camera, a remote control unit, and two or three interactive mechanical arms. This system most commonly is used for hysterectomy or myomectomy but can also be used for surgery for ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic pain, fibroids, or abnormal bleeding.

Supracervical Hysterectomy and Complete Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is a fairly common specialized gynecology surgery that removes the uterus, but many may not know that there are two hysterectomy categories. A supracervical hysterectomy is removing the uterus but not the cervix, while a complete hysterectomy is the removal of the entire uterus, including the cervix. If needed, the fallopian tubes and ovaries may also be removed during a hysterectomy, but only if they are abnormal or affected by a condition such as endometriosis. 

Incontinence Surgeries

For severe symptoms associated with stress urinary incontinence or overactive bladder, incontinence surgeries may be able to help. Various treatment options precede surgery, but if you’ve tried these and incontinence issues continue to impact your quality of life, surgery can offer a long-term solution. Surgical options depend on your condition, so please speak with a doctor to discuss the best solution for your type of urinary incontinence. 

Hysteroscopy

Hyteroscopy uses a thin, lighted device that is inserted into the vagina to help diagnose and treat problems of the uterus. Hysteroscopy can be used to remove adhesions, diagnose the cause of a miscarriage, locate an IUD, or perform sterilization.

Endometrial Ablation

Endometrial ablation is used to treat many causes of heavy bleeding by dismantling a thin layer of the lining of the uterus. It may also help alleviate symptoms associated with endometriosis.

I think Dr. Grana and her assistant (Mandy) are the best. I have been going to TP4W for years – at least 20, and I have never been disappointed with the level of care I have received. I can be a challenge as my level for pain tolerance is low and they put up with me! I can’t help but highly recommend the practice to anyone looking for exemplary women’s healthcare.

Love love love Dr. Grana and her crew. Love going to Holly Springs office. The girls are the best from Lisa at the front desk to all the girls in the back. Your music and atmosphere is great. Thanks for making these appointments fun!! Yes believe it or not, fun!!!

Dr V and the office staff were all very professional, understanding, caring and very efficient. I would be happy to recommend this practice to friends, family and associates. – Barbara M. Lucas

My visit was great! & my past visit have all been great.Kristy helped me even with me being a bit stressed & in a hurry because I had to be seen & my job is super strict. Her urgency to get me seen was phenomenal. I even got to see Heather, she’s awesome & amazing. She helped deliver my baby girl a year ago. My whole family loves her and Dr Sheshadri. We actually can’t wait to get pregnant again hahaha. Everyone treats you with respect and always makes sure your okay & answers whatever questions you have before you leave. Even leaving a message for the nurses,they get back to you so quickly.  This practice really makes you feel taken care of.  We appreciate you all!  – Erika Hooks

My experience with the TP4W staff has been top of the line.  They helped me through three pregnancies and coached me through every step of the way.  Eternally thankful I chose TP4W.  – Britney

TP4W have such amazing doctors, midwives and nurses.  I cannot say enough about Dr. Grana and the rest of the staff for all the help, advice, guidance and medical care they provided me with all of my kids.  She made me feel safe and calm through both c-sections.  My routine care and pregnancy care have always been top notch and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an OBGYN.  – Brooke

We were honored to receive a hand written note..

Dr. Grana, Angie, Jessica, Heather, April, Sarah and the rest of the staff –

Thank you all so much for taking such good care of me through both of my pregnancies and births, especially my latest one on 10/29! most of yall know how nervous I was from having gone through a lot (to say the least) with my first in 2016. You all made me feel so comfortable and at ease before, during and after. And going through a touch year with my dad, you guys always asked how he was doing at every appointment, which was so thoughtful and beyond your job description. I know that you all see many women go through what i did each and every day and deliver many babies and perform many c-sections. But I hope you know how special Ruby’s delivery was to me. You all have amazing jobs! I cannot thank you all enough. Merry Christmas!

Love, Lucy

I have been going to TP4W since 2010/11 and could not be happier.

The staff, nurses, midwives, and doctors are all amazing. I have 2 sons, both delivered via cesarean by Dr. V. Every visit and every provider did everything in their power to give me the birth experience I wanted, and also ensure that myself and my babies were safe and healthy. Dr. V even did everything in his power to help me avoid my first c-section and VBAC with the second, but that turned out to be out of his hands and he was the absolute best surgeon. With my two pregnancies, I experienced a few scares and some unusual circumstances that would be too long and too private to write in a review, but every single hurdle was handled with grace, honesty, and professionalism. I am so thankful for the recommendation from a friend to come to this office. I can’t imagine ever going to another practice.

TP4W is amazing and I am so very thankful I found them 9 years ago!! Amazing partnership between midwives and doctors, sweet nurses and front end staff, and relaxing environment. I literally recommend them to all my friends! I look forward to my appointments and feel like I’m going to catch up with old friends.

I’ve always had wonderful experiences at TP4W. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough in their care. April delivered my son and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. She is patient and compassionate. I had the best labor and delivery experience thanks to her. I do and will continue to recommend them to my friends and family!
