BMI Surgery at Silver Cross helps area resident dramatically improve health after bariatric surgery

When 281 pound Tina Siranossian’s doctor told her she had five years to live due to health complications caused by obesity, she knew she had to find the right tools to help her stop using food to cope with the stresses of life, so she could be around for her children. “I lost my mother at 39-years-old due to complications from diabetes and obesity. I didn’t start to take care of myself until I looked into the eyes of my children, and realized that I didn’t want to put them through losing a parent at such a young age,” said Tina, who had weight loss surgery at age 32. Since losing 134 pounds after having Lap Band surgery six years ago with BMI Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital, Tina is grateful for every day she has beat the odds by exercising regularly and eating healthier foods.

New Lenox, IL (March 31, 2016)— For two years, New Lenox resident and internal medicine physician, Dr. Diana Jaime, suffered with increasing vaginal discomfort due to dryness. Simply wearing jeans or driving a car for a while would cause her to experience more symptoms.  Dealing with menopause goes beyond hot flashes, it interferes with your activities and family time. For Diana, bike rides and zumba classes were off her to do list.  Her discomfort was due to severe vaginal dryness. She tried water-based lubricants and low dose hormonal creams, but found no relief. Unfortunately, she was not a candidate to take oral hormones since this type of medication caused her blood to clot. After trying what she thought were the only options to get relief for menopausal dryness, she figured she would just have to live with it. Then her life dramatically improved after talking with a girlfriend. Her friend suggested she see Dr. Francisco Garcini who could help her find relief through a new non-surgical procedure called vaginal rejuvenation.
