About Me

My expertise is in otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat). I have a particular interest in voice, swallowing, sinonasal and thyroid/parathyroid disorders. In my specialty, there are many medical and surgical treatment options that can make a significant impact in a patient's quality of life. Our multidisciplinary team provides patients with a tailored and targeted treatment plan for their specific disease.

I help my patients make informed decisions about how to approach their care. I provide all available treatment options and discuss important aspects of each. A well-informed patient can make decisions that contribute to a better outcome.

At Ohio State, we have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology while collaborating with other specialists. I work closely with other specialty areas such as pulmonary, allergy, speech pathology, gastroenterology and neurology to provide comprehensive care to my patients. We have the resources we need to really help our patients.

In my free time, I enjoy attending Ohio State football games, traveling and relaxing with family. This includes taking an occasional time out to coach my daughters' volleyball and basketball teams.

    Dr DeSilva is very personable and easy to speak with. I was in his office for an annual checkup on my vocal chords. He had a resident physician working with him and she assisted with the exam under his supervision. Dr DeSilva took time to explain the procedure and the results as well as recommending a follow up date. He is an excellent physician!
