Dr. Silverman served as an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas in San Antonio. He developed a keen interest in reproductive health issues and decided to pursue subspecialty training in reproductive endocrinology. Upon completion of his training, he served as Director of the In-Vitro Fertilization program there.
In 1984, Dr. Silverman and his family moved to New York, and he has been in private practice in Manhattan and Westchester County since that time. Dr. Silverman established the first free standing IVF center in the Northeast, and was responsible for the first IVF pregnancy outside of a University Hospital unit.
In 1987, Dr. Silverman became interested in Dr. Ericsson’s work in gender selection. After extensive study with Dr. Ericsson, Dr. Silverman began offering Dr. Ericsson’s Method of gender selection to his patients. In thousands of cases, this procedure has been extremely successful in increasing the odds of a couple having a child of their desired sex.
Utilizing his extensive experience and expertise with in vitro fertilization, Dr. Silverman is now offering patients in vitro fertilization along with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (IVF/PGD). IVF with PGD is extremely effective for family balancing because only embryos of the desired gender are transferred to the mother’s uterus.
Dr. Silverman’s practice is limited to gynecology, fertility and gender selection.
