Dr. Joseph D’Silva is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who trained at Rush Medical Center. Although he continues to treat multiple musculoskeletal conditions, his main area of focus is surgery of the lower extremity, specifically hip and knee reconstruction.
He is the son of a thoracic surgeon and was inspired by his father’s passion for medicine and healing patients. His approach to care emphasizes patient education – he wants each patient to understand their condition thoroughly and be involved in the discussion of the treatment options. He begins care with non-surgical treatments and only proceeds with surgery when necessary. In those cases he provides patients with techniques that are both innovative and proven including advanced pain management which not only speeds recovery, but also diminishes post surgical discomfort.
His expertise is reflected in Dr. D’Silva’s numerous leadership positions. He formerly served several terms as President of the medical staff at Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center, and had been a member of the center’s governing board for many years. Both those roles were in addition to serving as head of the medical center’s orthopedic surgery department.
Dr. D’Silva values a non-operative approach to patient care and utilizes pioneering measures. He also provides patients with surgical options for the treatment of their conditions.
