PAIN MANAGEMENT EXPERTISE
I believe that to treat pain effectively, one must address its physical, emotional, and psychological aspects. I focus on finding the physical cause of pain, while making the patient aware of any emotional or psychological aspects for its cause. Pain is personal, but its treatment takes the engagement of both the patient and physician. My goal is to improve functional capabilities through a combination of strategies including medical and interventional treatments, physical therapy, and other modalities such as acupuncture and massages.
PERSONAL INTERESTS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Silva enjoys cycling, traveling, and going to the beach and gym. She has volunteered in the Dominican Republic providing anesthesia for procedures done for the underserved community, children, and adults.
