My first Riley riddle. Enjoy.

My Prefix - A+ Place where work to get done, Suffix might send.

My Infix - Procedure that can be performed on a tom or some hen.

My Suffix - Place to go with brevity, if wrong way limbs do bend.

My Whole - Feature not representing a faction of darkness, my friend.

When finished, type the word that is built with these pieces I lend.

I think it's

ALABASTER

My Prefix - A+ Place where work to get done, Suffix might send.

The literal 'A', and work can get done in a LABoratory
Specifically, you might get X-rays done for your broken limbs

My Infix - Procedure that can be performed on a tom or some hen.

You might BASTE a (Tom) turkey or (hen) chicken

My Suffix - Place to go with brevity, if wrong way limbs do bend.

If you break a limb, head to the Emergency Room, or ER

My Whole - Feature not representing a faction of darkness, my friend.

ALABASTER is white, the opposite of black/darkness

When finished, type the word that is built with these pieces I lend.

ALABASTER

Partial guess for suffix:

ER - emergency room, place to go with broken limbs, with brevity = use abbreviation
