Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Talsania received an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering. This combination of engineering and medicine gives him a unique perspective in the treatment of his patients because he has such a strong understanding of the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system.
A native of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Dr. Talsania was the first fellowship-trained hand surgeon in the Lehigh Valley and joined OAA in 1997. His practice is devoted to the management of the hand and upper extremities. He has extensive experience in the surgical and non-surgical care of: fractures of the elbow, forearm, wrist and hand; arthritis of the wrist, thumb and fingers; flexor and extensor tendon injuries; chronic and acute wrist pain and tendonitis problems; nerve compression syndromes (cubital, carpal and radial tunnel); tumors, and infections and reconstruction of arthritic conditions.
Dr. Talsania is committed to research and education and has published several articles on hand surgery topics. His research has also been published in peer review journals. Most importantly, Dr. Talsania is committed to patient education, as well as educating the community, physicians and therapists in the recognition and treatment of hand disorders.
