Ratings for Dr. Vasco Da Silva
I had a serious fall during the ice storm of 1998 and I ended up with blood calcifying on my disks. in August of 2000 Dr. Sa Silva did a lumbar laminectomy which totally stopped sciatica pain. In 2010 I started to get bad sciatica pain. I felt hopeless I thought nothing could be done anymore at this point, I was on tons of pain medication. I had an MRI and was referred back to Dr. Da Silva. I will never forget sitting in the one of the office at the Ottawa Hospital and Dr. Da Silva looking at my MRI, all the while I was thinking he is going to tell me that he cannot do anything more. He looked up at me with a smile and said ''there is still a bit of calcified blood on a few disks, let go back in there an remove it'' I just started crying with relief. Dr. Da Silva is an amazing Neurosurgeon, he's friendly, approachable, very caring and he has a great sense of humour. I am pain free for most of the time now.
In 1988, Dr Da Silva was one of the neurosurgeons who saved my life when a brain tumor the size of a grapefruit revealed my condition of tuberous sclerosis. In ten years, he performed 5 surgeries on me. I was 8 at the time of my first surgery - I am now 5 months away from turning 37; I am extremely grateful to him, as is my family. I would not be here if not for him.

Thank you Dr. Da Silva for putting a cage in my neck. I can now feel my right hand. Unbelievable how other Doctors missed this one. And after care was wonderful to. At least I'm not fully paraplegic , all I can say is thank you for unnecessary surgery to my lower back as well. Living with pain is not what I wanted but at least I can feel my right hand again. I highly recommend this surgeon to anyone.
Actual recovery may be in the hands of God but making a patient believe in recovery lies only in the hands of awesome doctors like Dr. Da Silva . God bless him for his skills. I had an anterior foraminotomy and I did not even take one pain killer pills. so grateful. it is been over a year pain free.
We are so thankful for Dr. Da Silva and his amazing staff. He completed an emergency cerebral shunt surgery on my son and did an amazing job. Our family is so thankful for his amazing skill and compassionate nature which made an extremely difficult time much easier. I was also impressed by him during our follow up appointment. Thank you Dr. Da Silva and staff for everything you did for my son. We will not forget it.
Dr V DaSilva is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. After living almost 3 year in constant back and leg pain Dr DaSilva woke me in post-op to tell me he found the problem and fixed it! That was 1 week ago and my recovery is going great with no complications. I can not say enough about what an excellent Dr he is. Thank you Dr DaSilva and your 5 Star team.
I was very happy with my surgery and had a good outcome. Staff is excellent and everything was booked and organized well. Not much follow up post op but I didn't have big problems.
