Our surgeon used fluoroscopy during a closed fixation of the fibula & tibia, however all the fluoroscopy codes I have found do not go with this type of procedure. Is there such a code for this? Thanks!

Fluroscopy for fracture care

Per EncoderPro, I would consider 77002 "Separately reportable fluoroscopic x-ray may be used throughout the rest of the procedure to confirm stabilization of the fracture".

Hope this helps!
