Women’s health comes with unique challenges that require special attention from our trained experts. Our board-certified providers at Milledgeville OBGYN Associates helps women of all ages with preventative care to include screenings, diagnosis of disease and infection, and creation of treatment plans.
Milledgeville OB/GYN Associates offers state-of-the-art 3D mammography in our office. 3D mammography is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection. During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple breast images. Then, a computer produces a 3D image of your breast tissue in one-millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible.
By looking at the breast tissue in one-millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more confident assessment. In this way, 3D mammography finds cancers missed with conventional 2D mammography. It also means there is less chance your doctor will call you back for a “second look,” because now they can see breast tissue more clearly. 3D mammography is provided in our office by ONsite Mammography, LLC, the nation’s leading provider of mammography services to the patients of premier OBGYN practices.
Obesity in the United States is increasing, affecting approximately 93.3 million Americans today (39.8% of the population). Being overweight or obese can lead to numerous health conditions including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), certain types of cancer and elevated cholesterol. These health conditions can lead to a preventable, premature death. Individuals with obesity pay an average of $1,429 more in health care costs annually than those with normal weight.
