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.

I am an expert skier, have skied since I was six years old, ski 50 days a winter. Dr. Silverman has performed two surgeries on my feet. In 2010 he repaired a toe that had been broken sometime in my youth and never healed right. The toe would swell up and become very painful when I skied. Since that surgery I have skied 50 days a year and had no pain at all. In 2013 he performed a triple arthrodesis to repair my collapsing left foot. Prior to the surgery I was in such pain that I had to use crutches as the foot would become so painful that I couldn't walk and was kept awake at night. The surgery was in the spring and that winter I was back skiing with absolutely no loss of skill or strength. I skied 50 days last winter without a trace of pain. Needless to say the rest of my daily life was also pain free and allowed me to get back to my normal lifestyle. If I ever need foot or ankle help again Dr. Silverman is the only one I would consider.

Waited over 1 1/2 hrs beyond my appointment time to be seen. But very good and an expert with feet. I feel like he took the time to evaluate my situation
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Thanks for the kind words, Mark, and I'm deeply sorry for the wait time. We try our best to see everyone as efficiently as possible, but injuries and surgeries don't always follow the perfect schedule. Thanks for sharing your concerns and for taking the time to leave a review, and we're glad we were able to meet your expectations once you were able to be seen.

My experience with Dr. Silverman was pretty amazing! I came to him after having three surgeries on my foot and ankle--botched previously by someone else. So, in essence, he was the one fixing someone else's errors. It took him four surgeries to correct much of the pain, immobility, and appearance, but I would say that overall, I walked away with a foot that is as good as can be expected. I still have pain and my toes don't work quite right, but he was willing to try anything, including some experimental options, that would move me forward in this foot nightmare. I would definitely recommend Dr. Silverman as a first choice in foot/ankle repair.

In April of 2011 I partially tore my Achilles tendon. I began doctoring at my local clinic. For several months I tried physical therapy and was in either a boot or a cast and was non-weight bearing the majority of the time. In August of that same year he finally did surgery to repair the tear, which was much worse by the time they did the surgery! The rehab for this surgery was approximately 6-8 months much of this time was spent in a boot or cast again. Then exactly one year to the day of the surgery, the pain returned! My local Dr. had me have another MRI and said that there was no tear and that it was just tendonitis. So he put me back in a boot and had physical therapy yet again. The pain continued to get worse. I asked my Dr to refer me to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Since our local clinic/hospital is part of the Mayo Health System. He sent the referral, but I was denied an appointment as I didn’t meet their requirements (whatever that means). So in November of 2012 I had my second surgery this time to lengthen the Achillies tendon and release some pressure to see if that would help. I did get some relief from the surgery, but in about April 2013 it started to flare up again, by June I was having a lot of pain again. So I went to my local Dr again and he put me in a boot and said it was tendonitis again and reminded me that this was a long process and would take time. That was the last time I saw him. I tried to get into Mayo Clinic, Rochester yet again, but received the same letter. So I decided it was time to get on the computer and find a new Dr. So I googled “Achilles tendon specialist in Minnesota” and Dr. Lance Silverman of the Silverman Ankle and Foot clinic popped up. So I called the next day and was able to get in the same week. So in July of 2013 off we drove to Burnsville, (100 miles) with high hopes that after over two years of putting up with the pain and feeling like everyone thought it was in my head, that Dr. Silverman would be able to help me. Well guess what he didn’t let me down! First one of his assistants took some x-rays, then he came in the room. He took time to listen to me and then looked at the x-rays. He came back in the room and told me that he knew what the problem was and understood why I was in pain. I thought “Finally !! Then he brought in a ultrasound machine and showed me what bad shape the tendon was in and explained that it needed to be removed. I panicked for a minute, thinking I need that tendon. Then he explained that he would remove the bad portion of the tendon and replace it with a tendon from my big toe! Sounded crazy to me but if it meant it would take care of the problem and the pain for good, I was game. September 3, 2013 was my 3rd and final surgery (1 and Only with Dr. Silverman). The surgery went great. I received great care from Dr. Silverman’s staff, the hospital staff and of course Dr. Silverman himself. My recovery went great from the start it was the best and easiest of the 3 surgeries. Every follow up visit has been great, the ladies in the office are always so friendly and helpful. Which also reflects on the kind of person Dr. Silverman is. He is a very caring doctor who is willing to listen to you and answer any questions you may have. He is great explaining everything in a way so that it's easy to understand. I truly can’t say enough good things about him. He has helped to feel so much better. I am now able to get out walk and exercise and I have even started to lose some of the weight I gained over the 2 ½ years of being either in a boot or cast. I highly recommend Dr. Silverman, my only reget is that I didn’t google him sooner !! Thanks Dr. Silverman for giving me back my life! Wendy Whalen

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.
