Hi there,
Can anyone help me with a code possibility for closed reduction with external fixation placement for an ankle (bimalleolar fracture)? I have found internal fix, and manipulation codes, but nothing that really makes me feel comfortable. Am I staring right at the answer?

Thanks!

Wow, I was looking in the wrong area altogether... My Encoder did not even pull that up... must have keyed it incorrectly! Thanks you both SO much!:eek:
