Hi everyone, have kind of an odd question. We have a patient who is 6 wks out from great toe fusion and was having a problem with the hardware. Our doctor took him to the OR, removed the original screw and replaced it with a new one...how would I code this? 20680 for the removal but what about for placing the new screw? Or is there a code for both...? Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!
