Get to Know Dr. Silva

Why did you decide to pursue plastic surgery as a profession?

As a plastic surgeon, we have the ability to improve a patient’s quality of life. I love being able to make people whole again after cancer treatment or trauma. I also enjoy collaborating with other specialties to think of creative ways to solve problems and improve outcomes for patients.

What is your approach to patient care?

I really care about my patients and focus on the details of their care. I value good communication, and I want to ensure they understand all their reconstructive options and work to help them make the decision that’s right for them.
