Total Joint Replacement Specialist in Lexington, KY

TOTAL JOINT
REPLACEMENT

Based in Lexington, KY our joint replacement team is trained in the latest techniques and treatment options for total joint care and replacement. We specialize in:

Though these are the most common replacements, our physicians are well versed in several other joint procedures as well. Our highly trained orthopaedic surgeons perform hundreds of procedures a year with excellent outcomes. There are many types of implants and recommendations are based on several factors including weight, age, and activity level. Your surgeon will discuss the best type of joint implant for you prior to surgery. If you'd like to hear some of our many success stories, check out our "Comeback Champions".

Most important is how a patient's activity and physical functioning improve after treatment. Our surgeons incorporate the latest technology advancements into their practice, including the use of smaller incisions and new, longer-lasting artificial components, when appropriate, making possible a faster and less painful recovery. Our on-site physical therapists, who work hand-in-hand with our physicians, are available to you to complete your recovery process. Using the best available science, our physical therapists will work diligently to get you back to enjoying the activities you love.

When other methods of treating pain and loss of motion have been exhausted, joint replacement may be the best hope for long-term improvement. Dramatic advances in procedures and devices used to repair and replace joints may now bring extreme relief to those who suffer from chronic pain.

Comeback Champion
Joe Duff

Bluegrass Orthopaedics is proud to acknowledge our Comeback Champion - Mr. Joe Duff. Mr. Duff has been active his entire life, including competing in water skiing events! He is a spry 86 year old and wanted to be sure to get out on the lake this summer. He had injections in the past with some benefit, but he was determined to live an active lifestyle, and a knee replacement would be needed to ensure that.

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.

I was worried that I would lose some function which would impair my performance necessary for my occupation. I have been 100% pleased with every aspect of the care I received from Dr ONeill. My surgery was completely successful. I have full use of my thumb. Dr ONeill treated me with respect. He knew I was experiencing pain and he was most kind and caring. I highly recommend this surgeon.

He discussed different surgical options but guided us toward that which he felt was best in my case. He discussed expected benefits, time of recovery and possible complications. He was easy to relate to and discuss the procedure. John Loventhal

He had successfully repaired a nasty elbow fracture three years earlier on my other arm. I am a satisfied repeat customer, although I hope I do not make a habit of this. I like his manner, and I trust his skills.
