Hello,

Can anyone tell me what code I would use for Haglund's Deformity Right Wrist in a 60 year old female.

I can only come up with M77.31 but it says Juvenile. So I am thinking that would not be correct.

It also directs me to Osteochondrosis (juvenile,tarus) or would I go with Osteoarthritis.

Any Help is Appreciated.

Thank you,
LLR

I don't see where you're coming up with M77.31 as a juvenile diagnosis. M77.31 is a calcaneal spur of the right foot, i.e. a heel spur. Haglund's deformity is a bony prominence on the back of the heel. I am not sure why your provider is saying this is related to the patient's wrist.

I would query the provider for clarification of his diagnosis.
