Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

For six months, Mokena resident Juliet Smith suffered with severe pelvic pain during her periods and after as well as intense cramping; especially after her ovulation. At the same time, she was trying to conceive a second child with no success. She then decided to see obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Nicole Gress, who discovered a large cyst on Juliet’s left ovary. Together they decided the best approach to relieve the 37 year-olds’ severe pelvic pain was to remove the large cyst by having a robotic cystectomy at The Midwest Institute for Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital. To Juliet’s delight, after surgery she had no more pelvic pain during her periods, and now a mere few months later, she is thrilled to be expecting her second child.

It happens every winter. Temperatures drop and snow falls, leaving piles of the white stuff to clear from your sidewalks and driveway. But before you grab your shovel, get the “scoop” on moving snow safely from the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) at Silver Cross Hospital. It may help you avoid aches, pains or even serious injury.

Ken Garland was in the midst of rehabbing his basement when he suffered a stroke on Sept. 8, 2015. After eating a slice of pizza, he stood up to get back to work when he felt dizzy and a loss of balance. He sat back down, and after a few moments, stumbled upstairs to rest. He was slouched down on the sofa when his wife returned from walking the dog. Ken was perspiring profusely.  His wife called 911 and within minutes the Manhattan paramedics were transporting Ken to the Silver Cross Emergency Department (ED) where a Code Stroke Team was awaiting his arrival.  By this time, Ken felt tingling in his arms and legs.
