Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Talsania "Even though I am a surgeon, the majority of my patients are treated without surgery. Most conditions that I see in the office can be treated in a conservative manner with education and observation, medications, custom splinting and hand therapy or injections. Surgery is reserved for those patients who fail conservative treatment and feel that they can't live with the current level of symptoms. Acute hand trauma is often the exception. Occasionally, a hand condition is severe enough to warrant surgical intervention. I feel it is important to educate the patient about the expected outcome, risks and benefits to make that decision a team decision. My goal is to improve a patient's quality of life by decreasing pain and improving function. My philosophy combines conservative medical care, patient education and state-of-the-art surgical procedures. I really enjoy sitting down and talking with my patients and trying to solve the problems that interfere with their function. I have a diverse practice from young children to the elderly. Although I see a lot of common problems, the patients are what make the thought process infinitely variable and stimulating. I have a hard time accepting electronic medical records and computers in the exam rooms, as they take away from actual dialogue."
