Elbow & Shoulder
Our Shoulder and Elbow
Patients are at risk of upper-extremity injuries if they are active in recreational activities, performing repetitive tasks, or have had an acute injury. The risk increases if high-level activities are continued after 60 years of age. A multitude of shoulder and elbow injuries can develop that may prevent patients from living an active, pain-free life.
At the Bluegrass Orthopaedics, our fellowship-trained specialists treat shoulder and elbow conditions in patients ranging from pediatrics to senior citizens, and can tailor a treatment plan specific to a patient's condition. Our shoulder and elbow specialists treat patients and athletes of all ages.
Shoulder and Elbow
Some patients with rotator cuff problems can be treated non-surgically with a modification of activities, physical therapy, injections and anti-inflammatory drugs.
However, if surgery is recommended for elbow or shoulder conditions, the surgeons at Bluegrass Orthopaedics can treat complex conditions, including:
- Rotator cuff
- Shoulder replacement
- Fracture repair
- Instability of the shoulder
Surgical treatments for shoulder conditions performed by our surgeons include tendon transfers and fracture work, as well as joint replacement, rotator cuff, instability surgeries and arthroscopic repairs.
One procedure, reverse shoulder replacement, can offer patients with an irreparable rotator cuff and no overhead function the ability to improve range of motion and eliminate pain.

Elbow & Shoulder Team
Very efficient although conservative approach to my problem.
Very professional staff. Don’t have to wait like most Dr. offices. My treatment has been wonderful.
A great understanding doctor! He exhausted every option before surgery. I’m glad he’s my doctor and friend.
Dr. Donegon was extremely professional and immediately made me feel at ease. All the staff at BGO are equally pleasant and accommodating.
My daughter had a broken arm and he explained everything thoroughly about surgery and healing, and the surgeries were a success
Awesome. Dr Donegan and his staff are caring and make the patient the #1 priority
Saw Dr. Donegan's PA - same day appointment. He was able to diagnose me quickly and I have hope that I will be pain-free after PT.
Great Doctor Great doctor, great staff. Highly recommended.
