Dr. Richard Silverman
Whether you have worked for years to improve and fine-tune your physical appearance or if you have just discovered the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise, Dr. Silverman will work with you to help you achieve and maintain the appearance you desire.  Dr. Silverman understands the special challenges of the fitness community as a committed member himself.  He understands the anxiety that many prospective patients experience when anticipating a surgical procedure, no matter how minor and he works with his patients to minimize interruptions in their workout regimen, while attending to the physiologic needs of healing the wound. He will help you to design an exercise program after your surgery, which will protect the results of your procedure, while allowing you to have an active recovery.

Dr. Silverman received his A.B. in German from Dartmouth College in 1981 and his M.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 1985. He completed training in General Surgery at the Hershey Medical Center of the Pennsylvania State University and at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine, finishing in 1990. He then trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, completing his program in 1992, followed by a travelling fellowship in Microvascular Surgery at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taipei, Taiwan, and at the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. He has been on staff at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center since July, 1993. He obtained certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in November, 1995. His practice was relocated to the St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, Massachusetts, with offices in Newton and Brighton in September, 2000. In his new practice, he joins Dr. George Volpe, with whom he trained at U Mass.

Dr. Silverman's practice covers the broad range of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, with some focus on diseases of the breast in both men and women and body contouring. He remains affiliated with the University of Massachusetts Medical Center as an Assistant Professor of Surgery. His focus in aesthetic surgery is in fitness-oriented individuals and bodybuilders, where he aims to provide surgical care with a minimal interruption in their training program. He has written several articles on the treatment of gynecomastia in bodybuilders, published in both peer reviewed journals as well as in popular literature, including Muscle & Fitness magazine (for which he also serves on the Medical Advisory Board) and Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness magazine. As a result of his exposure to the complications of drug use in athletes, Dr. Silverman has developed a program and is available to speak with students and other groups regarding steroids and other drug use in sports.
