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.

A wonderful doctor with a great staff. Dr. Favetto has performed two different surgeries on me and I would most highly recommend.
Impressive One of the best doctors I’ve ever been to. He gave me my diagnosis within minutes, but then proceeded to help me cope with the underlying causes of the issue. Very impressed.
I had a wonderful experience, the staff was very friendly and helpful, dr favetto was very sincere and precise making me feel comfortable
What a terrific doctor and human being! Thanks for caring about my friends arm and scheduling for next-day surgery.
Procedure was done expertly with no complications. Healing time was excellent. Dr. O'Neill was very thorough in explaining the procedure and necessary follow up instructions.
Caring, interested, quick and to the point
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.
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!
Dr. Favetto is very knowledgeable about his area of expertise. He explained things very carefully and in a kind manner. I would recommend his services to anyone who is having trouble with any hand issue.
Very thorough and took the time to answer all my questions.
