      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Sylvester's Care Philosophy

      I believe in providing the latest in technical advances, such as THINStrand Prostate Seed Implant Brachytherapy and ERB Prostate Immobilization during IG-IMRT, without losing sight of the individual patient's desires. Shared decision making allows us to create a plan together that optimizes the chance for cure and reduces the risk of side effects to the lowest level possible. It is critical no one is rushed into a decision, thus I typically spend 60-90 minutes at the initial consultation.
