Hand and Wrist

Our Hand
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.

The quality of care and level of skill that I received from Dr. O'Neill for repair of a trigger finger was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic hand services. HIs staff was professional and responsive to any needs/questions I had. My care could not have been any better than what I received from Dr. O'Neill and his staff.

Really took the time and explained things to me. Have gone to three other doctors about my arthritis in my neck and thumb and carpal tunnel in both my wrists and no one offered a plan to help me. He understood my pain, why it was happening and how to fix it.

The entire staff in the office was friendly and helpful. I was able to do the required paperwork ahead of time which expedited the process once arriving at the office. The entire consultation, including images and treatment, was less than an hour. I have full confidence in Dr. Favetto’s skill and knowledge and can recommend him without reservation.
