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. 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.
He's a great dr. Short sweet and to the point. He's honest and truly cares about his patients.
Great care Excellent professional practices,, well pleased with my experience with Dr. O’Neill!
Great orthopedic surgeon. I think Dr. Donegan is a great Orthopedic Surgeon. He treated me with respect and kindness. I truly like him and think he is wonderful.
Excellent Doctor & team
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!
I had the carpal tunnel surgery 8-26 on my right hand with 3 finger tendon releases. Everything went smoothly, so about 10 weeks later I had the left hand done, and was happy with the outcome.
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.
Concise and convenient Quick appointment, good office interaction. Concise diagnosis & treatment options.
