Vassar Brothers Medical Center just recently appointed Dr. Adam T. Silverman director of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Silverman is a double board-certified plastic surgeon that has had privileges to operate at Vassar since 2012. He graduated from plastic & reconstructive surgery residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago the year prior. Dr. Silverman has offered state of the art procedures and technologies for the benefit of the Mid-Hudson Valley. Some of these procedures deal with breast reconstruction, such as direct to permanent implant and the pre-pectoral approach to breast reconstruction. He was the first surgeon at Vassar to perform an endoscopic component separation to repair an abdominal wall hernia. Dr. Silverman hopes to continue to advance the field of plastic & reconstructive surgery at Vassar Brothers Medical Center.
