By far the best doctor I've ever had especially while trying to figure out a very complicated problems in my leg. Even though it was very confusing and sometimes frustrating, Dr. Silverman never gave up on me as a patient until the my leg was back to new. I just had my final appointment and the final clear that my leg was back to normal after two surgeries and almost a year of pain and recovery. Dr. Silverman has helped both my sister and I with very complicated problems in our legs. Having him as my doctor made the whole process a little easier knowing I had a doctor who truly cared and wanted to find the problem and fix it. I'm very grateful to have had him do my surgeries. With his humor and his focus on helping me, I knew that with a little I would be back to normal.

We saw Dr Silverman for growth plate issues with our 14 year old son. He was very knowledgeable and able to articulate exactly what was going on with his ankle. He had a great rapport with our son as well and included him in the discussion. He referred us to physical therapy where he has had great results. Subsequently when our 12 year old son broke his arm we went to see Dr Silverman again. We again had a great experience and all contact with his staff was wonderful. Not only was his arm casted but once that was removed his was put in a brace and directed to physical therapy. This has allowed him to heal while strengthening his arm and allowing him back in activities. We would highly recommend Dr. Silverman. He was very thorough and had the breadth and depth of knowledge which has allowed our children great results.

Dr. Silverman treated my daughter about a year ago for a broken bone--which I did not even realize was actually broken. His bedside manner was perfect for a young child. He made my daughter feel comfortable, and his explanation to her of what he was going to do, removed all of her fear and apprehension. Dr. Silverman went above and beyond the call of duty. He made the procedure enjoyable for her. Since then, I have referred a number of friends with foot and ankle issues to Dr. Silverman, and will continue to do so. I highly recommend Dr. Silverman and Silverman Ankle & Foot.

I broke my left ankle (fibula) and badly torqued the soft tissue (tendons, ligaments, and nerves) in my lower leg and foot when I crashed riding the Alpine Slide at Lutsen Mountain in August 2013. It was super fun right up until the "end". Ha! I guess, I should've heeded the visible warning signs to "Slow Down" and "No Racing". It was totally my fault. Oh well, live and learn. Like I stated, it was fun! I'm now six months removed from my crash and I'm virtually 100% healed! I think some of the soft tissues, such as the nerves, typically take the longest to heal, but that remaining portion is negligible. I owe great thanks to Dr Lance Silverman and his team for wonderful care throughout my healing. Dr. Silverman saw me immediately following my crash, he thoroughly examined my injury (hands' on & x-ray) with appropriate concern, professionalism, and humor. Fortunately, I did not require surgery. Even so, Dr. Silverman offered several care options to me, he provided me with his recommendation, and he and I made the final care decision together. He outfitted me with an Air-Cast (aka, a "boot") and he stressed the importance of stimulating blood flow through walking on my injured foot, elevating it, icing it, and engaging in Pre-Hab, which is a series of micro toe & foot exercises done INSIDE the boot and before my injury would be ready for full rehab. Dr. Silverman even has YouTube videos for each exercise, which allowed me to always have access to correct, visual demonstrations via my smart phone. In addition, Dr. Silverman referred me to his preferred physical therapist, Andy Masis at OrthoRehab, for injury rehab and for general, overall maintenance of the rest of my body. Andy may very well be the best PT out there. Wow, he is awesome!. Dr. Silverman wanted to ensure that the rest of my body didn't get soft just because I didn't have normal use of my ankle. As my injury healed, Dr Silverman outfitted me with two additional braces: 1) one for comfort, support, and swelling reduction during sleep time (who wants to put their dirty boot on the clean sheets?), and 2) one for transitional support when the boot came off, which, by the way, I had removed in just four weeks, rather than the typical six weeks! Dr. Silverman said I got it off for good behavior, but I know it was because of a coordinated effort between Dr Silverman's care, Andy Masis' care, and my care. I'm good patient and I started at a high level of general fitness. I did everything I was asked to do and then some, including proper nutrition to feed the healing areas, additional exercise beyond PT, and a positive mental attitude. At six months post injury, I'm back doing everything I was doing before my injury, except recklessly riding the Alpine Slide. In fact, I got back on that horse during week three just to make sure I could ride it safely. Shhhhh, don't tell Dr. Silverman. Anyway, I don't really think about my injury anymore. I'm back, baby! I'm back! Thank you Dr. Silverman!!!

Dr. Silverman treated me for ligament damage in my ankle. The results of the surgery were excellent leading to full mobility, stability and zero pain. I also had an issue with my other ankle which he performed another operation on with similar results. When I suffered from a bruised heel Dr. Silverman provided expert treatment, where other doctors fumbled with the diagnosis. He even went out of his way to support my recovery and ensure all was going to plan. Dr. Silverman will be honest with you, provide you with treatment options and help you select the best treatment for you.

I consulted with Dr Silverman nine months from a total knee replacement. At that time, my knee still hurt and was swollen. He examined me, found the swelling, contacted a doctor in my home town for a second opinion explaining the situation and his suspicion for infection. The infection was confirmed and I started the long process of getting infection treatment and revision replacement. All along the way to recovery Dr Silverman continued to keep in touch with me and my doctors knowing how serious my condition was and conveying his concern without adding any undue stress to me. I was very impressed with Dr Silverman’s willingness to help as I was not his surgical patient and this was a really big problem.
