"In this season of Thanksgiving, I wanted to take the time to express my heart felt appreciation for the treatment and care I received from this office this year. My entire life has changed since my successful surgery this year. For the first time in so many years, I can wear "real" shoes" instead of sandals all year round. Can dress up like a lady in dressy shoes and can even wear all my beautiful boots!!! Since I can now walk straight,instead of leaning to the right all the time, I have been able to do "power walks " again and have lost 20 pounds. I can go barefoot, I can walk downstairs the right way instead of going down sideways. !! No more chiropractors or massage therapists, or acupuncture! I feel so blessed and thankful to have my health challenge gone. Wishing you and yours, a very Happy Thanksgiving. !!"

"I'm better, because you're the best! Thank you."



"Patient complained of heel pain for ten years. Patient used arch supports, injections, night splints with no relief. Cryosurgery was performed on April 19, 2007. Patient had 5 days of pain after surgery. Returns to clinic on May 10, 2007 for three week follow-up and is 95% better."

"The procedure Dr. Silvester performed on October 14, 2005, on my left foot relieved my pain by about 65% and convinced me to have the other foot done three weeks later. Having these procedures done has allowed my to reduce my intake of Neurontin from 6 pills per day down to 2 pills per day. My opinion of this procedure is that I would highly recommend it. My results were far better than I expected."
