Dr. Nick Foeger – A Standout Among Hand Specialists – Practices Near Clarksville, IN

Dr. Nicholas Foeger is a prominent hand specialist who practices at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic. As a board-eligible, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Foeger stands apart from many other hand specialists who practice in the Clarksville, Indiana, area. He has impressive credentials and focused expertise that you can trust.

Hand Conditions Diagnosed & Treated by Dr. Foeger

  • Arthritis of the wrist, hand, and thumb
  • Tendonitis, such as trigger finger, De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, and tennis elbow
  • Flexor and extensor tendon injuries
  • Sprains and dislocations of the elbow, wrist, thumb, and fingers
  • Fractures of the forearm, wrist, hand, and fingers
  • Nerve compression, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Ganglion cysts on the wrist and hand
  • Kienböck’s disease
  • Ulnar-sided wrist pain

Like most hand specialists, Dr. Foeger emphasizes conservative treatment whenever possible, reserving surgery as a last resort for addressing severe pain or impaired function that does not improve with non-surgical therapies.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
