I had an endoscopic carpal tunnel release by Dr. Desai and my hand is now 100% back to normal.

From the beginning to the end Dr Desai was very professional and my surgery was very smooth. I have had a great outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Mrs. Shelia Bailey I had surgery on July 7, 2016 for a trigger finger and another problem with my hand. It is now August 5, 2016; my surgery was very successful. The finger and hand is back to 100%. Dr. Desai is very knowledgeable, and compassionate; I would quickly recommend Dr. Desai to my friends. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
in Richmond, VA |
Dr. Desai is the best of 3 hand surgeons I have seen. He is thorough without being pushy. He has a confidence-inspiring bedside manner. I believe what he says.
in Richmond, VA |
He operated on me in NOVEMBER 2011 performing Basal Joint Arthroplasty on my left thumb. After rehab and in the time frame promised, I now have 100% use. He was and is honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, excellent in his field, and only suggests surgery when needed. His staff is excellent and very attentive. Now I have new problems with the other hand and perhaps carpal tunnel in both hands. I know I am with THE BEST. He will give me a clear explanation of any surgery or treatment needed.
in Warsaw, VA |
Dr. Desai and his staff could not have been more pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend Dr. Desai and will go back to him if needed.
