Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

When Jennifer Tseng, M.D., was growing up hiking along the coastlines and hills of Orange County, California, the thought of becoming an innovative breast cancer surgeon was not on her radar. In fact, it was not until she watched healthcare liaisons in her college residence hall care for students dealing with depression and suicide that she decided to switch her major from pre-law and pre-business to biology.  Witnessing these healthcare mentors inspired Dr. Tseng to pursue a medical career helping others during pivotal life moments. After completing medical school and three fellowships with training in breast and complex general surgical oncology, clinical immunotherapy and clinical medical ethics, Dr. Tseng has brought her unique expertise and treatment philosophy to care for area cancer patients and their families at the Silver Cross Breast Center inside the Center for Women’s Health and just steps away from the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross on the hospital’s New Lenox campus.

For three years, Kankakee resident Teloa Smith wasn’t able to fully enjoy life because she was so stressed trying to make it to the bathroom in time to avoid an accident. Smith, like millions of women in the United States, was silently trying to cope with her constant incontinence. Things began to worsen as she could feel a bulging tissue come out of her vagina, which was causing her to frequently urinate. In addition, her incontinence episodes would get worse any time she bent over. Fortunately, she found incredible relief after undergoing four robotic surgeries at the same time on May 22, 2017 at the The Midwest Institute for Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox. Silver Cross was one of the first hospitals in the entire Midwest where skilled surgeons use the robotic surgical system to perform single-site robotic surgeries with virtually scarless results.

When Juanita Murray was in her forties, she was diagnosed with a prematurely worn left knee. A couple decades later, arthritis developed in the knee, which lead to severe pain that limited her mobility. Her pain became so severe that it was excruciating to do simple daily tasks like walking in the food store aisles and bagging her groceries. With her quality of life declining, Murray knew she had to get help soon.  After trying less invasive treatments with no success, Murray decided to have a total knee replacement with the Mako Robotic System at the Midwest Institute of Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital in September 2017.
