Dr. Silvia did a partial knee replacement for me and the process was excellent, the outcome just the best. I received all the information I needed. It's important to follow directions and do rehab with dedication.

I have not had my hip surgery yet, but I am very impressed by Dr. Silvia and his staff. With his extraordinary background, I have confidence he will competently replace my hip. He and his staff were very kind, helpful, and answered all of my questions.
Davenport, IA |
Dr. Silvia performed a partial knee replacement on me. I made the decision to use him after a 2 hr consultation visit. He spent all the time I needed going over statistics, answering questions, recommending areas to research pre-surgery, etc. He visited me twice during my 24 hrs in the hospital. Dr. Silvia is VERY proactive/cautious regarding infections/blood clots. Will use him again for my other knee.

From consultation to post surgery I never had any doubts
