Hand Surgery Performed by a Fellowship-Trained Specialist in Louisville, KY

Hand Surgery Louisville KY Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic is proud to have Nicholas Foeger, M.D. as part of our team. Dr. Foeger is a Washington University School of Medicine graduate and a board-eligible, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hand surgery. Merging the latest in surgical advancements with compassionate and individualized care, Dr. Foeger achieves the best possible outcomes for his patients in Louisville, Kentucky.

Most types of hand surgery are highly complex operations that require the expertise of a specially trained surgeon such as Dr. Foeger. This is because the hand is an intricate structure that features nearly 30 bones and numerous ligaments, tendons, muscles, sheaths, veins, and nerves that work together to facilitate movement. Patients who turn to Dr. Foeger and the experienced team at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic for hand surgery can feel confident in their decision, as we excel in performing a wide array of hand surgeries:

  • Carpal and cubital tunnel release
  • Trigger finger release
  • De Quervain’s release
  • Wrist replacement (CMC arthroplasty)
  • Finger joint replacement and fusion
  • Proximal row carpectomy
  • Partial and complete wrist fusion
  • Ganglion cyst excision
  • Wrist and hand ligament reconstruction
  • Digital nerve repair
  • Flexor and extensor tendon repair and reconstruction
  • Fixation of wrist, hand, and finger fractures

When Is Hand Surgery Necessary?

Like most other musculoskeletal problems, conditions that affect the hand or wrist can often be addressed through conservative measures like bracing or physical therapy. However, hand surgery is sometimes necessary to fully restore hand function, reduce pain, or correct visible deformities. Some issues that may warrant surgical treatment include:

  • Trauma to the hand or wrist, including crush injuries, sprains, severe finger or wrist fractures, and tendon tears
  • Damage from infections or degenerative conditions like arthritis and Kienbock’s disease
  • Deformities that hinder function or appearance, such as Dupuytren’s contracture, Ganglion cysts, or fingertip injuries

Our Approach to Hand Surgery & Musculoskeletal Care

We take a conservative approach to orthopedic care that focuses on avoiding unnecessary surgical intervention; however, surgery is sometimes the clinically appropriate choice. In these instances, Dr. Foeger and the rest of our physicians utilize the latest advancements in minimally invasive and muscle-sparing techniques to achieve the best results for our patients as efficiently and safely as possible. Our surgeons also collaborate with in-house physical therapists during the recovery period while keeping close tabs on each patient’s care.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

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!
