I am 52-years old, and a diabetic. For years I had no feeling in my feet. I had a toe amputated. When Dr. Silvester told me about the new surgery he was doing, my first thought was, 'Yeah, right.' But on September 9, 2005 I had the procedure done on my right foot. After that I was amazed I could actually feel! I felt tickles that I had not felt in over 10 years. I decided I wanted to do the left foot, and Dr. Silvester performed the surgery on October 7, 2005. What Dr. Silvester has given me has left me speechless and very grateful. I recommend it to any and everybody that will listen to me.
