Hello
My doc did a 27446 and 27438 according to the CCI edits they are mutually exclusvie, but can be used w/ modifier. I am wanting to use 59 modifier, which states this can be used for different site or organ. My question is this modifier appropriate for the different compartments in the knee??
thanks for any opinions!!
