Hand and Wrist
Surgeons and Therapists
Hand and wrist care is available at Bluegrass Orthopaedics for common problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers, wrist and finger fractures, tendon injuries and tennis elbow. Many ailments can be treated in a non-surgical fashion, often using custom-splints, casts, cortisone injections and therapy.
Bluegrass Orthopaedics has two hand surgeons on staff - our physicians not only have the depth and scope of knowledge, but also the experience to treat complex upper extremity problems. Dr. Favetto and Dr. O'Neill were two of the chief surgeons on the transplant team that performed the first two of three human hand transplants in the United States.
Hand Therapy Locations
Patients can go right from the doctor's office to the therapist's office to begin treatment. This service keeps patients from having to set up a separate visit or delayed care. The ease of referral and streamlined care is unparalleled, and it is usually not found in a less specialized practice. For the convenience of our patients, hand therapy is located at our main clinic on Richmond Rd. as well as at our Georgetown office.
Hand therapists are also an essential part of the Bluegrass Orthopaedics' care team. In addition to credentialing by state occupational therapy boards, we have medical professionals at Bluegrass Orthopaedics who are designated as certified hand therapists. This designation is based on experience and special training. All therapists participate in continuing education.
The diversity in fellowship training of Bluegrass Orthopaedics hand surgeons is impressive. Our physicians have trained at prestigious fellowship programs and they have brought this expertise to central Kentucky.

Dr.ONeill was wonderful to me. He was efficient in seeing me, I never waited long to get in with him. His staff was knowledgeable and friendly. I would HIGHLY recommend him.
You are the focus of his attention while he is in the room with you. He explains everything in detail, even using drawings where indicated.
Great doctor. Makes you feel comfortable and confident going into surgery.
Great Doctor Great doctor, great staff. Highly recommended.
Dr. O'Neill performed a miracle surgery on my 2 crushed fingers. He and his staff are still working to get them more mobile. I am so grateful to him for his skill and caring attitude.
Impressive One of the best doctors I’ve ever been to. He gave me my diagnosis within minutes, but then proceeded to help me cope with the underlying causes of the issue. Very impressed.
Dr. Favetto is very professional, yet very down to earth. He was very thorough in explaining everything about my hand problems. Surgery went very smoothly. One of the best doctors I have ever been to
Explains everything well. Compassionate and understanding. Seems concerned for his patients' welfare.
Great! Listens, explains, kind-everything you need when you’re suffering! He’s fixed several broken hands and both wrists for me-surgery and plate on one-couldn’t be happier! Highly recommend!
Great! I was in a great deal of pain. The office got me in quickly. My wrist was pinned, plated and well done. Thank you for a delightful 5 star experience.
I trust Doctor O’Neil. He has given my the best treatments and has kept me on the mend. I cannot thank him enough during this recovery period of my hand.
