TOTAL JOINT
REPLACEMENT

Our joint replacement team is trained in the latest techniques and treatment options for total joint care and replacement. Although hips and knees are the most common joints replaced, we also specialize in other joint replacements, such as the shoulder. Our highly trained orthopaedic surgeons perform hundreds of total hip, knee, and shoulder replacements 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.

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.

ROBOT-ASSISTED 
KNEE REPLACEMENT

At Bluegrass Orthopaedics, our knee specialists Dr. Kevin Denehy, Dr. Greg D'Angelo, Dr. Wallace Huff, and Dr. Owen McGonigle are now performing knee replacements using the Mako robotic-arm assisted technology at the Bluegrass Specialty Surgery Center. Robotic-assisted surgery requires advanced training and certification. It provides additional precision, less soft-tissue trauma, less post-operative pain, potentially quicker recovery, better knee function, and improved patient satisfaction.

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.

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.

This was my first total knee replacement by Dr. Vasicek but certainly not my first visit. Each time that I have visited BGO I have been treated with the utmost respect and concern for my health and welfare. Dr. Vasicek and her associates perform at the highest of professionalism. As for my knee replacement, the surgery went exceptionally well as is the post surgery rehabilitation. I would recommend Dr. Vasicek to anyone requiring orthopedic help.

I went for knee problems, he gave me shots that help the knee heal without surgery. He was very caring, and intelligent, and helped the pain in my knee. I would highly recommend him.

My pain was unbelievable. I couldn't walk any distance at all. I dreaded the surgery, the associated pain and recovery. Dr. Huff did a total knee replacement and straightened my leg. Within two weeks, I was walking without any assistance. The pain from the surgery and recovery was nothing. Today I can walk any where I want and as long as I want without pain. THANK YOU Dr. Huff.

Dr Favetto, Evaluated my thumb pain and confirmed the diagnosis that I had received from two other Drs. He was compassionate and informative. Gave me the options and did not push surgery. I highly recommend Dr Favetto!

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.
