5 Services You Didn’t Know You Could Get at the OB/GYN

When selecting an OB/GYN practice, your top priority is the standard of care that the doctors provide, but at some offices, there may be an opportunity for other services you didn’t know you could get at the OB/GYN. Triangle Physicians for Women is proud to provide high-quality services that cater to many different aspects of women’s health. In addition to offering complete gynecological care and comprehensive obstetric and midwifery services, we also provide specialty services, including nutrition, mammography, and more. We know that you have a busy schedule, which is why you deserve an OB/GYN practice that allows you the convenience of multiple services all under the same roof. To help explain some of the more unique offerings we have at TP4W, we’re running through five services you didn’t know you could get at the OB/GYN.

CoolSculpting

While you expect general exams and physicals, aesthetic services like CoolScuplting may be a service you didn’t know you could get at the OB/GYN. CoolScuplting is an FDA-approved body contouring procedure that uses cool temperatures to target and permanently eliminate fat cells underneath the skin. A study conducted in 2009 found that CoolSculpting can reduce up to 25% of the fat cells in any treated area of the body. Though diet and exercise are the most effective way to lose weight, there is no way to spot treat stubborn areas of fat. CoolScupting can help contour areas that are resistant to diet and exercise without the need for more invasive procedures like liposuction. 

Mammography

While breast exams come standard at your OB/GYN appointment, not all practices have mammogram technology readily available for their patients. Screening is key in breast cancer prevention, which is why we offer state-of-the-art 3D mammography in our office for your annual breast screening. In an effort to make mammography a convenient service, we can accommodate a mammogram in the same appointment as your annual GYN appointment. In addition, we can almost always accommodate a mammogram at your appointment with us; even you haven’t already made an appointment in advance. The one-stop convenience of having mammography at our practice is one of the unique benefits of Triangle Physicians for Women. 

MonaLisa Touch

We pride ourselves on excellent care for women in every stage of life. For some women, menopause or breast cancer treatment can lead to changes in vaginal health. Changes in vaginal health are very common and yet rarely discussed, which may be why MonaLisa Touch and Geneveve are services you didn’t know you could get at the OB/GYN. The MonaLisa Touch is a virtually painless treatment that is both fast and effective. During each treatment, hundreds of tiny pillars of laser heat energy to stimulate the natural regeneration of the vaginal tissue. Both the MonaLisa Touch and Geneveve boast significant benefits and can lead to increased tightening, sensation, and satisfaction.

Nutrition

Nutrition is key to living a healthy lifestyle, and yet you may be surprised to find that nutrition and weight loss services are offered at TP4W. Personalized nutrition services can help get you and your health on track as well as helping you meet your goals. Made possible by our partnership with Maria Kennedy, MPH, RD, LDN, we offer personalized nutrition for postpartum care, PCOS, gestational diabetes, general nutrition, and more. 

Botox

Triangle Physicians for Women provides comprehensive care for various aspects of women’s health, but we also go beyond the scope of health to provide aesthetic services as well. Botox, for example, is probably one of the services you didn’t know you could get at the OB/GYN, but at TP4W, we want to make your life as easy as possible by offering a multitude of services under one roof. Botox Cosmetic is a popular and quick 10-minute treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. We know that feeling your best is one of the keys to living a healthy, happy life, which is why we go beyond the average service offerings of a typical OB/GYN to make sure we cater to you in as many ways as possible.

Dr. Pearce was attentive, listened well, and provided a comfortable experience for me. My recent vaginal exams have been very uncomfortable and she provided a very comfortable exam this time.

Dr. Pearce was AMAZING! She answered all my questions and didn’t make me feel rushed. Best experience I’ve had at Triangle yet! She really put my worried first-time mom mind at ease.

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.
