Ratings for Dr. Vasco Da Silva
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.
In 1996 my father was admitted to the Ottawa Hospital where on that day or shortly afterwards he experienced a hemorrhagic stroke. Despite my family repeatedly asking for a CT scan, we were denied by the staff physician, Dr. David Davidson. He told us that my father had not experienced a stroke but rather probably had pneumonia...this despite the fact that he was has all the signs of a stroke (slurred speech, difficulty speaking etc.) Over the next 2 weeks my father remained in a stupor. Suddenly after two weeks, he was finally given a CT scan which indicated he had experienced a stroke. Dr. Da Silva operated on my father and provided a ventricular peritoneal shunt. My father got better but passed away two weeks after. After he died I obtained the clinical notes that indicated the doctors had known he had a stroke right from the beginning of his hospitalization. If the other doctors involved had been as professional and ethical as Dr. Da Silva, my father would have survived.
