Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Silva "Patients survive cancer more when their treatment adheres to the best practice patterns as suggested by leaders in the field-NCCN, MD Anderson, Mayo Clinic and Memorial Sloan Kettering- to name a few. In these circumstances, the up to date cancer surgeon has to be able to explain in very clear layman's terms why the integrated use of major surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and radiation therapy may differ from patient to patient often tempered by their genetic risk assessment."
