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.

Great dr He's short sweet and to the point. He's truly concerned about his patients wellbeing. Had CTRS 3 yrs ago now on left hand and I'm returning for surgery on the right. I wouldn't trust my hands to anyone else.

I first saw him after a complicated hand fracture when he was with Kleinert and Kutz. I later followed him to Bluegrass Ortho. Now he is treating my trigger fingers. He also operated on my son's left hand about 5 years ago (who is a violinist in the Cleveland Orchestra). My family loves Dr Favetto and won't stop anywhere until we get to him for any hand problems that come up. I also refer any patient of mine who has a complicated hand or arm problem to him.

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.
