Dr. Silveri has been instrumental in the treatment of my back pain. He performed a lumbar fusion on May 5th. One month after surgery, I was completely out of pain! Dr. Silveri has been great. I followed all of his directions and kept a positive mindset during tough times. His expertise with my desire to do anything to be pain free (without daily medication) has proven to be beneficial and successful for me. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Silveri if you have back pain.

I began seeing Dr. Silveri early in 2018 for Spondylolisthesis L5-S1 and ultimately ended up having a lumbar fusion in November of 2018. I can't be more pleased with how smooth the entire process was! From day one walking into his office in pain, Dr. Silveri has led me in the right direction. He was always very direct in explaining all of the medical intricacies, while also allowing the space and time my family needed to make an informed decision. He answered every question my wife and I brought his way and didn't rush to surgery as the immediate solution, instead we went step by step with alternative options first. Along the way I never felt mis-leaded or in the dark about anything. I just had my 1yr follow up and was released to the world lol I can't thank Dr. Silveri enough for giving me my life back!!

I have had very positive experiences with Dr. Silveri as well as the entire staff of Fair Oaks Orthopaedics. My first experience was in 2008, when Dr. Silveri performed spinal fusion surgery for stenosis @ L4-L5. The procedures was successful and I was pain free for 10 years. After retirement, we moved from Virginia to the beach in Delaware. I began to have some back issues and an MRI confirmed stenosis had developed in the lumbar region of L1-3. I did not hesitate to travel back to seek his advice. After a year of conservative treatment of Physical Therapy and pain management shots, Dr. Silveri performed my second surgery this September. The procedure was a success and although my entire lumbar region has been fused, I recovered quickly and am relatively pain free. I am pursuing PT locally. Highly recommend Dr. Silveri to anyone with spinal issues. John Giaquinto, Bethany Beach, DE. December 2019

Dr. Silveri did a good job on my husband's back fusion surgery. The incision is healing nicely and they did a great job overall. He ordered home PT and nursing care after my husband was released. The best thing though, was when my husband went for his 2 week follow up and said he was having bladder issues. Dr. Silveri did not hesitate to contact his urologist and get him an appointment to see him immediately after this follow up. That showed his genuine concern and willingness to help. He may appear to shrug off some complaints, but that is only because he knows it's part of the process and will get better in time. If there is a legitimately serious issue, he takes action and doesn't dismiss it.

Not only would I recommend Dr. Silveri, I have done so. His skill, friendly manner, the expertise of his staff, all contributed to a positive outcome for me. I feel that i have my life back, and never dreamed that after having four vertebrae fused that I would be pain free and have the flexibility that I had before. Thanks, Dr. Silveri

I recently brought my badly deteriorated lower back and its constant pain and failing mobility to Dr. Silveri. I also presented the extra challenge of my great distrust of a surgical solution fed by the very bad results of two friends who had a similar lumbar surgery. I very badly needed medical intervention but was extremely leery of a surgical option. Dr Silveri presented himself as a very serious, compassionate medical professional whose total value in my case was his dedication to a procedur

Dr. Silveri performed a Anterior Cervical Discectomy Fusion on me on 2/14/18. The surgery went extremely well. All pain is gone, including the massive headache that started just prior to surgery. The movement of my neck is as if I'd not had any surgery at all. I have full range of motion without any limitations. I am very grateful for Dr. Silveri and Dr. Gorsen (neurosurgeon),the two anesthesia teams and the team that monitored my spinal chord during surgery. I am confident that you will do well

I had a Lumber Fusion Surgery L-4 S-1 performed by Dr. Silveri on 12/4/17. his preparing me for this could not have been better. His staff is first class and they care about your condition. I have been a fitness enthusiast all my life and am able to get back slowly to my previous levels now. I went through a year and a half of PT before 12/4/17 and was not getting any better. This was my first Surgery in my life and was uneasy about it. Dr. Silveri put me at ease here and did a great job.

Awesome doctor. Had a fusion L4 & L5 one year ago and I am totally back to my old self. From the minute I stepped into his office through a year Dr. Silveri has take. The time to get to know me and my physical needs and of course surgery was our last choice. No regrets and the staff are awesome as well. All my appts have been on time and all my silly questions were answered and did not make me feel silly. Thanks for the excellent care! Best Doctor of 2018 in my book!

In August of 2018, Dr. Silveri performed a lower back fusion surgery (laminectomy and fusion L4-S1) on my father. We went to Dr. Silveri because his name came to us with high accolades from several different past patients, as well as multiple physician recommendations. We quickly found out first hand why everyone speaks so highly of him and why he is in every edition of any “Top Doctors” publication. We highly recommend him!

After he operated on me, he was highly irate with me because I still had pain. He used the pain scale as his way to gauge his success. He does not care to be honest with that pain scale. He actively changed my answers in front of me after I was just being honest. I do not agree with a person going behind me and changing my final answers.

Dr Silveri was not helpful at all and a total waste of time and money. I was in severe pain for several days but according to Dr. Silveri not enough to see him or receive treatment. I tried explaining I had a history of back problems but he wasn't interested. I had an old MRI 4 years ago. I asked if we should update to check for change and he said not necessary! So I went to another Orthopedic Surgeon and Neurosurgeon who ordered MRI to reveal change and nerve damage, What Arrogance on his part

Just had my one-year checkup after lumbar fusion surgery last January. Dr. Silveri and his neurosurgeon colleague, Dr. Bob Gorsen, provided me with excellent care and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to family and friends. He's also a pretty likeable guy -- which is nice when you're going through something like this. 5 stars.

This is my second experience working with Dr Silveri over the last two years. He is a phenomenal surgeon with great bedside manner. Both of my surgeries (fusions) have been complete successes and his competency is beyond par. His support staff is equally qualified with special recognition of Tricia Knox who was the comsumate professional in all my interactions with her. I highly recommend Dr Silveri for those with chronic spinal conditions.

What a great doctor. He had the confidence to review my images and definitively localize the reason for my leg pain. All the other doctors did not have the knowledge to evaluate the subtle findings obviously present on my studies and only he had the compassion to believe my complaints and relate them to the MRI findings. His training is excellent and I was very lucky to have him as my surgeon. I have fully recovered and thanks to him I have my life back. Highly Recommend to any patient.

He did an L5/S1 spinal fusion. I interviewed 4 other docs and he was the best. I could not have been happier with the end result. The recovery process was harder than I expected, but the results were immediate. It has now been one year and I am better than ever. He was always professional; and explained things well.

Dr. Silveri performed spinal surgery, removing a cyst and doing fusion, a little over a year ago on me. I went from being in great pain daily, often unpredictable as to what would bring it on to being pain free. Dr. Silveri was kind, he listened, and was thorough! My life returned to normal and I have been able to travel and garden again. I would highly recommend Dr. Silveri!
