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.

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.

My level of Care was outstanding and the surgeries could not have went better. He explained my conditions and the surgeries well beforehand so I could make an informed decision. As a result of the surgeries I regained full use of my hand and fingers back. Doctor O’Neill has improved the quality of my life with his skilled “hands” and expertise. He is the best.

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.

Dr Favetto was very considerate during my visit. He wanted to try to every option before surgery. Which is a relief.

He had successfully repaired a nasty elbow fracture three years earlier on my other arm. I am a satisfied repeat customer, although I hope I do not make a habit of this. I like his manner, and I trust his skills.
