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.

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.

Best hand doctor Dr. Favetto is prepared to handle the most complex of hand procedures and pays attention to the smallest details. He is well respected by his medical peers who unanimously recommend him. He explains all procedures completely and leaves the decisions up to you. Sometimes you have to wait for your appointment because an emergency has arisen, but one must remember one's own emergency that brought one to his office in the first place, and it is well worth the wait.

I was very satisfied with my visit with Dr. Favetto. His exam was thorough, and I understood the plan of care. He also picked up on symptoms other physicians have missed.

Procedure was done expertly with no complications. Healing time was excellent. Dr. O'Neill was very thorough in explaining the procedure and necessary follow up instructions.

He did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand in 2009 and I have had NO residual numbness. I started having pain in my thumb joints in November, 2015 and the pain remained constant. I saw Dr. O'Neill in May, 2016. He recommended injections and advised they may be painful. I had them in both thumbs and by the next day, I have no pain in my thumbs joints! I am extremely satisfied!

Dr Favetto has now done 2 surgery’s on me. One on each thumb joint replacement. I would highly recommend Dr Favetto for any type of hand surgery. He is a great Dr and a great person.
