Dr. Donegan and his staff of Bluegrass Orthopedics In Lexington, Ky make the 3 hour drive from Pikeville, Ky to Lexington worth while. He and his staff are some of the most competent and upbeat group of professionals we have ever had... Dr. Donegan and his staff of Bluegrass Orthopedics In Lexington, Ky make the 3 hour drive from Pikeville, Ky to Lexington worth while. He and his staff are some of the most competent and upbeat group of professionals we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Dr. Donegan did a complete reverse shoulder replacement on me and one complete reverse replacement for my wife, Suzie. He also repaired her other shoulder. I have completely recovered from my surgery and Suzie has recovered from one of her’s. She is 2 months post op on her full replacement, and her recovery is progressing quickly. Both of us wholeheartedly recommend Dr Donegon and his staff!!!

Dr. Hunt takes his time to explain everything to you. He is very caring and is a absolutely wonderful surgeon. He replaced my hip and I had minimal pain and recovered very well. He’s getting ready to do a Fusion surgery on my back... Dr. Hunt takes his time to explain everything to you. He is very caring and is a absolutely wonderful surgeon. He replaced my hip and I had minimal pain and recovered very well. He’s getting ready to do a Fusion surgery on my back next week and I know I’m in good hands. If you are looking for a wonderful group of trustworthy Orthopedics then this is the place for you. Bluegrass Orthopedics have several locations to better serve everyone. I actually go to the Lexington, Ky. location. Friendly and qualified staff. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Without reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Christensen and his staff! It is reassuring to have a doctor hold your hand and pray specifically for you just before he does surgery!
