Dr. Silver always recognizes me, knows what we talked about last time, remembers all the details I put in letters that I used to explain my severe joints pain, AND he smiles and looks sincerely like he's happy to see me. I feel very comfortable and confident in his skills and his care. He doesn't treat me like a hip replacement, he treats me like a person and he's very intent that the hip replacement works and is making my life better. *** I recommend him to anyone who wants a competent and caring Doctor that they can trust. I am so glad I found him and so is my husband (care partner).

At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
