Dr. Silvers in my opinion is probably one of the best Shoulder surgeons in the area. A little background, I have a grade III shoulder separation from a Mountain Biking accident; all Docs say Grade iii is not a required surgery - to me it was. After interviewing 3 surgeons, I chose Dr. Silver because of his demeanor and because he utilizes the latest techniques including dissolving screws. Excellent outcome 2 weeks later. Be your own advocate and choose wisely. Thank you, Dr. Silver!

ACL reconstruction by Dr. Silver and I ran a 1/2 marathon 4 months later with success and pain free. It has been seven years now since ACL reconstruction and all is great. Highly recommend.

He takes time to listen to his patient. He makes it easy to talk to him. Very good surgeon also!

I am not a fan of the majority of the medical profession but had to undergo knee surgery this year. I am grateful I happened upon Dr. Silver. He is what I wish for in every doctor -- professional, knowledgable, competent, positive, passionate -- and most importantly, respectful of his patients. I wish Dr. Silver came in all dr shapes and sizes but alas, I now have a sports medicine dr I trust. Note: I cannot recommend TOA as a practice, but highly recommend Dr. Silver and NC Specialty Hospital.

This is the best doctor you could ask for. Not only is he highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable, he really cares about his patients. I had a meniscus tear in both knees over a four year period and I would not have gone to anyone but him. He is the best, hands down.
