Biography

Dr. Silva is a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, a Diplomat of the American Boards of Internal Medicine, Hematology, Oncology and Forensic Medicine. He is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and other national and international medical societies.
In 2002, Dr. Silva created the InterAmerican Breast Cancer Conference, which is held in Cancun, Mexico. The conference has turned into a world meeting focusing on “what to do with your patient at the bedside.” One of the objectives of the meeting is to create a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean which will unite American and European physician/scientists. At this biannual meeting, Dr. Silva established the Umberto Veronesi Award for Excellence in Breast Cancer Research and Development.
Dr. Silva founded the Emmaus Medical Mission in 2003, which completes at least two medical missions a year. The missions are dedicated to treating the medical needs of the underserved, impoverished and forgotten people of Latin America
