Care Philosophy

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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Talsania' for several years. Besides being a excellent surgeon , very caring, he always listens to your issues.. The results of the surgery have always been excellent.. I have recommended him to several friends and they are also very pleased with him. There has never been a time that I had an appointment that he never came into the room with his great smile. He is the only on in the Lehigh Vallry that I would go to for my hand surgery because I know the results.

Can't say enough about Dr. Jay, opening up an appt for me after an ER visit and taking care of my medical needs was so greatly appreciated. It was so important to see a DR ASAP because I was in such pain and he did just that for me. Was my first visit to Dr. Jay and he knew exactly what was wrong and prescribed the right medication and my hand is now pain free. Thank you SO Much Dr. Jay.

I went to Dr Talsania for hand and wrist pain for several years. Was very comfortable with him and my appts. He talked with you and gave you options for now and for later. Would definitely recommend him for hand issues and would return if needed to have doctor again.

Dr. Talsania is a brilliant surgeon & physician! He's passionate about health & healing! His enthusiasm is contagious! He's respectful & kind. ALWAYS goes the extra mile for his patients to help them heal. I was in excruciating pain from falling on my wrist & fracturing it. He operated, inserted a titanium plate & because of his superior medical expertise I regained 100% functioning of my hand. I've had 3 unrelated hand surgeries & these were ALL successful! Dr. Talsania is the BEST!
