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.

Excellent Doctor Been to three other doctors who acknowledged my arthritis and carpal tunnel. None offered any help. Dr Favetto understood my pain and how to help me.
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.
