A Patient's Guide to Workers' Compensation & Hand Surgery


With two locations in Los Angeles, one in Beverly Hills and another in West Hills, Avosant Surgical Associates specialize in treatment of workers' compensation injuries to the hand and upper extremity. Our AAAHC accredited on-site surgical facility, the Rexford Surgical Institute (RSI), is specifically designed for surgery of the hand and upper extremity and includes state of the art techniques such as microvascular and arthroscopic surgery commonly required to treat work-related hand and wrist injuries. In addition, our staff is highly experienced in California workman's compensation care and is dedicated to successfully meeting our patients' needs by providing and managing individualized treatment plans and realistic solutions.

Workers' Compensation

If your injury is work-related, your employer is required by law to pay for workers' compensation benefits. Workers' compensation insurance provides several basic benefits including medical care, supplemental job displacement benefits or vocational rehabilitation, temporary or permanent disability benefits, and death benefits. Workers' comp is a no-fault system and patients do not need proof that their injury was someone else's fault in order to receive these benefits.

Approximately 75 percent of hand injuries and conditions are work-related. While some may require surgery, others are conservatively treated by using a combination of physical therapy, medication, and/or splinting. Whether the problem is a simple sprain or a severe injury involving damaged nerves, lacerated tendons, or dislocations and fractures of the hand, arm or shoulder, our specialists will diagnose and evaluate your injury or condition to determine the type of inpatient and outpatient medical services and treatment that are most appropriate for you.

Work-related conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Hand Fractures / Hand Sprains
  • Nerve Injuries of the Hand
  • Brachial Plexus Injuries
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis at the Base of Thumb
  • Wrist Fractures / Wrist Sprains
  • Extensor Tendon Injuries
  • Nail Bed Injuries
  • Scaphoid Fractures
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Cumulative Trauma Disorders

    Our goal at Avosant Surgical Associates is to treat, rehabilitate, reduce the risk of re-injury and restore the patient's hand and upper extremity to a healthy and functional state as quickly as possible. In order to help you return to work safely and in a timely manner, our staff is dedicated in addressing all of your concerns and maintaining communication with your employer and workers' compensation insurance carrier. Timely medical status reports are sent concerning your evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan and return-to-work status.

    There are several specific actions you can take that will help us with this process.

    1) Bring appropriate documentation with you including:
  • Pre-authorization or letter of referral from your employer or primary treating physician
  • Workers' compensation insurance carrier's information (name, address, telephone number)
  • Worker's compensation claim number
  • Valid driver's license or picture ID
  • Employer's information (name, address, telephone number)

    2) All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

    3) If the patient is hearing impaired or needs translation in some language other than English, Farsi or Spanish, please notify us in advance so that we may arrange for an interpreter.
