Workers’ Compensation Services

Getting injured at work is never a pleasant experience, and finding the treatment you need may make your healing even more difficult. Workplace injuries can come with complications. Dealing with workplace injury insurance can cause additional stress. However, at Renaissance Plastic Surgery, our goal is to make it easy for you to find the treatment you need for your workplace injury.

At RPS, our highly experienced surgeons offer high-quality surgical treatments to help you effectively recover from your workplace injuries. No matter the kind of injury you have suffered, patients at Renaissance Plastic Surgery can feel confident they are receiving top-level medical care for their workplace injury.

We provide treatments for the following:

Hand Injuries

Plastic surgery may not be your first thought when facing hand injuries, but many of our surgical techniques provide the best options for treatment and recovery in the face of a wide range of injuries. To heal hand injuries effectively, our surgeons can provide treatments for the following workplace-related conditions:

Considered a significant surgery, amputations are the loss or removal of a body part that has been injured. Amputations may be necessary if any employee experiences a severe workplace injury that results in severe injury or loss of a limb such as a hand, arm, leg, or foot. This treatment will help to reshape the remaining tissue for safe healing.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome involves a pinched nerve in the wrist, which is commonly caused by excessive computer use. Patients may experience numbness or tingling in the hand. Treatment may involve surgery if needed.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
A compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow causes Cubital Tunnel Syndrome. Patients often experience shooting pains up and down their forearm as a result. Surgical treatment can be recommended as part of a comprehensive recovery program.


Dequervains is known as a condition involving the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist, causing consistent hand pain. Caused by computer use, interventions are designed to reduce inflammation and remove the pressure that causes the condition.

Also known as tennis elbow, epicondylitis involves an irritation of the tissue that connects the forearm muscle to the elbow, resulting in pain. In advanced cases, surgery often provides the best, lasting resolution.

Setting, pinning, grafting, and additional techniques aid the recovery of hand fractures to preserve motor function and promote healthy healing.

Reconstructive treatments will help mitigate damage, reduce scarring, and preserve hand injuries that involve skin wounds and severe cuts.

Mallet Finger
Mallet finger is typically caused by injury and results in a deformity of the finger. Surgical treatment typically involves inserting a pin to hold the joint straight while the damaged tendon heals, restoring its correct function and appearance over time.

Trigger Finger
Trigger finger is a condition where finger joints get stuck during normal movement and then snap straight due to tendon failure. Tendon failure can be resolved through a small incision that opens the tendon sheath to restore motion.

Other Injuries:

Severe Burns
If an employee suffers severe burns due to a workplace accident, we offer surgical and reconstructive treatments for both chemical and thermal burns to heal the skin and improve the appearance of scarring.

Ulnar Nerve Disorder
The ulnar nerve travels down the arm to connect the wrist, hand, and fingers. When this nerve is damaged, surgery at either the elbow or wrist will eliminate compression on the nerve that causes the disorder.

Crush Injuries
Restoring hands that endure crushing injuries, which are caused by forced pressure, can involve treatment to stop excessive bleeding and surgery.

Skin Grafts
Skin grafting is a procedure that involves the transplantation of healthy skin from one part of the body to another. This treatment can be used for treating scars, burns, and other injuries that cause extensive skin damage to minimize scarring and improve appearance.

Our focus is to provide excellent medical care to injured workers and exceptional customer service to our patients, employers, carriers, and case managers.

Our team understands your need for immediate access, good communication in an effective and timely manner, and a provider who understands Missouri Workers’ Compensation practices.

Communication is essential. We work closely with the injured worker, carrier, case managers, employers, and ancillary providers to assure compliance with care and to keep the team focused on treatment outcomes.


Causation is established on every new patient we see. The causation statement is added to the first office note for every new patient. Our physicians review job descriptions and reports of injury, both written descriptions sent by employers and carriers and oral descriptions provided by patients. Additionally, the patient’s medical history, medications, hobbies and length of employinent are all factored in when determining causation.

Return to Work

Restrictions are written, from a medical standpoint, to protect hands and upper extremities that need time to heal properly. Restrictions, if written, are reviewed at each follow-up visit. Employers, case managers and carriers are encouraged to call our office with questions regarding restrictions. Our primary focus is to return workers to their normal daily activities, including work, as safely and timely as possible.

An on-site OR suite allows injured workers immediate access to the care they need without rhe long waits associated with the emergency room. We can give your injured worker better care, better service and allow you to manage your claim more cost effectively.

Renaissance Care

Our physicians assure the highest standards of patient safety have been met with total control over the operating environment.

Continuity of care is maintained with the same care team seeing the patient in the office and OR settings.

Most hand surgeries are done under local anesthesia, eliminating the negative side effects, added costs and risk s of general anesthesia. Patients are comfortable, awake and engaged during the operative process. The need for added recovery days while the effects of anesthesia wear off is eliminated.

Three on-site hand surgeons offer the flexibility to schedule non-urgent surgeries to fit our patients work and personal schedules. Acute injuries can be taken “door to OR” without an extended delay.
