I have a surgeon that goes in and removes a fracture fragment from a toe. He isn't in a joint. This is an old fracture and this fragment is starting to cause the patient pain. The doc gave me a fracture CPT code, but I just don't know if he treating the fracture. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks
Peggy

Is the bone fragment from an old injury? If so, use proper dx. As far as the CPT, if it's not a foreign body then he is treating the fracture. Your CPT would be the fracture code.
