A Bit About Dr. Silverman
Dr. Diana Silverman is a fellowship trained breast surgical oncologist, and also a stage IV breast cancer survivor. A graduate of Rutgers University, Dr. Silverman earned her medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her surgical internship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey where she was elected the Chief Surgery Intern. Dr. Silverman’s surgical residency was completed at Midwestern University in Chicago, Illinois where she trained at one of the top Children’s Hospital and Trauma hospitals in the country. She was then elected Chief Surgery Resident for her final year of general surgery residency. Dr. Silverman completed her training at the Society of Surgical Oncology accredited breast fellowship program at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, PA.
She originally moved to the Hudson Valley 6 years ago as the Breast Program Leader at the Herb & Sue Ann Redl Center for Cancer Care, and lead developer of the expansion of the new Women’s Imaging Center of MidHudson Regional Hospital of Westchester Medical Center. In 2015 she was asked to join Mount Kisco Medical Group, now Caremount Medical Group. She has volunteered her time to Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, Breast Cancer Options and Sparrows Nest. She was voted Hudson Valley Parent Favorite Doc and 2017’s Top 40 under 40 Mover and Shaker by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
In March of 2017, Dr. Silverman’s life was changed when she, herself, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 36. She underwent surgery, chemotherapy and returned back to work in November with a completely new outlook on life and breast cancer treatment. Unfortunately, less than one year later, the cancer had spread to her spine. Since that time Dr. Diana Silverman has completely immersed herself in integrative therapies by researching treatments from all over the world to help combat the disease and improve quality of life. Her knowledge base combines years of experience in both eastern and western medicine for an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
