I am looking for a CPT code to capture the Repair, nonunion or malunion, sacral. All I am finding is for the initial fracture repair. In addition, the provider removed prior fixation device and in my research I am showing that he can charge for the removal of the earlier placed hardware in addition to the new fixation.

Here what the provider is performing:

Open reduction internal fixation of sacral nonunion with removal and replacement of iliosacral screw fixation (revision screw fixation) and re-bone grafting through separate incision of right femoral shaft.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!:confused:

sacrum nonunion repair

what code did you end up using? I have the same issue and I am afraid I will have to use an unlisted code.
thanks :)
