Post Op Dx-Left 5th digit proximal phalanx involving 3 fragments.
Procedure-open reduction and internal fixation left proximal phalanx.

My question is: I believe the procedure code is #26735-F 4.My question is physician states that he did all three fragments on F-4. Would the code still be the same, but add a 22 modifier? Physician stated patient had a long oblique pattern through the shaft , but also had an intracondylar split of the phalangeal condyles making this a much more difficult fracture to deal with. Thanks K:confused:athy Albert, CPC
