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.

A great understanding doctor! He exhausted every option before surgery. I’m glad he’s my doctor and friend.
Very professional staff. Don’t have to wait like most Dr. offices. My treatment has been wonderful.
Dr Favetto is a very thorough, passionate and professional doctor. He and his staff are great!
Dr. Donegan explained everything in detail so that I could understand. He even had a 3D image of my arm so I could see exactly the damage that was done & what he would do to repair. He is a very compassionate doctor.
My daughter had a broken arm and he explained everything thoroughly about surgery and healing, and the surgeries were a success
Awesome staff and Dr. Donegan is great. I would recommend them to all my family and friends.
Dr. Leo Boisvert
Awesome. Dr Donegan and his staff are caring and make the patient the number one priority. He diagnosed me on my first visit.
He was very nice and professional. Made me feel very comfortable for my visit. I had a broken collarbone from an accident and he said it was a good break as it should heal fast. I see him again on Dec 2nd for a checkup.
Professional and caring. Explained my options throughly and understandably.
