Local Surgeon Appears on Embarrassing Bodies

March 2011

Mr Jonathan Staiano, Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon at Spire Parkway Hospital, has featured on Channel 4’s flagship health programme, Embarrassing Bodies, where he conducted breast reduction surgery on a full time mum suffering from terrible shoulder and back pain due to her extremely large breasts.  As its name suggests, Embarrassing Bodies is a programme centred on helping patients with health issues that they find embarrassing or that they have found no help with treating previously. 
Glenrose , 28, from Warwickshire met Embarrassing Bodies resident GP, Dr Christian Jessen to discuss the problems she had been experiencing. Following Dr Christian’s advice, Glenrose visited Mr Jonathan Staiano at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull, West Midlands, where he performed breast reduction surgery.

Embarrassing Bodies has on average 3.5 million viewers per episode and its website is one of Channel 4’s top three online properties alongside Big Brother and Hollyoaks and has won a BAFTA for interactivity in 2009.
