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.

He operated on my husbands hand and was so great about communicating and making sure we felt comfortable. We really enjoyed working with him and would recommend him.
Excellent Doctor & team
Time and time again, Dr O’Neal proves to be a competent, and caring surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing reconstructive hand surgery or joint issues.
So glad I went to Dr O'Neill for my hand surgery. I could not be more pleased. No one wants to have surgery, but when you have to, it's so great to have all your questions answered and have great results!
Extremely knowledgeable and patient focused. Wait time is short and office is efficient. Would recommend to anyone needing his service.
Great Doctor Great doctor, great staff. Highly recommended.
Dr. Favetto was quick yet thorough in explaining the fracture in my hand. I appreciated the explanation of the healing process since this is the first break I've ever had.
Dr O'Neill treated me for a dog bite. He was very kind & explained everything thoroughly. He answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Top notch care!
