What People Say About Dr. Eric Silverstein, MD

Dr. Eric Silverstein is a brilliant surgeon. It took me 8 1/2 years to find this talented Dr. whom I can never say thank you enough to. I was to the point where I could barely walk, stand, and drive when I met him in 2018. I had a large cyst behind my knee which had displaced my major nerves and artery. I had a hole which he patched with pigskin. I had 100% confidence as I was going into the operating room. He was the only surgeon who knew how to fix my crippling condition. I’m not one to recommend to many Drs. but this Dr. is truly talented and well spoken. His whole office team was so efficient and respectful. I thank God that another talented surgeon had taken the time to direct me to him. I am forever grateful for being a patient of this Drs. Please don’t ever second guess your decision to work with him.

Dr Silverstein is thorough, pleasant and has a friendly personality as well. He has done both my husbands hips and my knee. We are very pleased with the results.

My mother was turned away by other surgeons after breaking her femur several years ago. At that time, she was already in her nineties, and after an exam, Eric expressed confidence that he could do a hip revision and femur replacement in 51/2 hours. Voila. My mother will turn 97 this year and she is living alone with little assistance. Highly educated and highly skilled, Dr. Silvertein's greatest attributes are compassion and listening skills. Now I am referring a dear friend who's 82 for knee replacement surgery, and I am receiving the anticipated reception from Andra that my mother and I got from Debbie several years ago.

Dr Silverstein is a great doctor and surgeon. Prior to my operation last Friday, he walked me through everything and was very reassuring. His confidence gave me confidence in his abilities, but he wasn't cocky or unwilling to explain everything in detail and give me the time of day. Two weeks out of Knee surgery and I am already walking.

After 4 long years of living in extreme pain due to a bad hip implant, I finally found Dr. Silverstein, who diagnosed me with an infection in the hip joint area which caused the hip to not heal correctly. He went in and removed the old hip components and eventually re-inserted a new hip and ever since I have been in zero pain and finally have my life back. Before meeting Dr. Silverstein, my life was all pain and playtime outside with my kids was pretty much non-existent.

The whole experience was exceptional. Dr. Silverstein's treatment of my arthritic knee elliminated pronounced pain I've had for months and subtle pain for years. He is a terrific communicator, adept at quickly diagnosing root causes, pragmatic in his recommendations, and respectfully candid with his views. Best surgeon I've ever met or been a patient of without exception.

Incredible surgeon! I was referred to Dr. Silverstein by another Orthopedic surgeon who was uncomfortable doing my surgery due to the size and location of a large bone tumor. I met with Dr. Silverstein and his office had my scheduled for surgery within 2 weeks. I was walking without crutches within days after surgery. Dr. Silverstein, his Physician Assistants and his entire office staff are extremely friendly, informative, and compassionate.

Dr. Silverstein is an incredible surgeon whose abilities allowed me to live my life to the fullest with very few restrictions. 7 years ago Dr. Silverstein operated on me conducting an Internal Hemipelvectomy to remove a malignant Ewing's Sarcoma tumor. Post op I was walking without assistance and within a year after my operation I was playing full contact lacrosse. I graduated high school with 4 varsity letters 2 in soccer and 2 in lacrosse. I owe most of my ability to function today to Dr. S.

Cut first, ask questions later. Once he's paid, forget it, you're on your own. Was told 6 weeks recovery, more like 6 months to a year for partial recovery. Get 2nd opinion for sure
