I am trying to code a case for hip periacetabular osteotomy. It was previously coded as CPT '27299' stating that 'AAOS recommended this code over the 27146 CPT code". Which is correct?
Thanks for any help!

I have had success billing the 27299 with compare to code of 27146. But I also have had success with 27146 with 4 units (since it's 4 cuts).
