Nonsurgical and Surgical Fracture Care on Same Fracture

My podiatrist saw a patient in the office and did closed fracture care on her ankle, procedure 27786 with the knowledge that he was going to take her to surgery 2 days later and performed open fracture care, procedure 27792. Is it right to bill both and add mod 58 to 27792?
Thanks!

Well it is in the Global period of 90 days in the first procedure and it sounds planned. I'm not sure which procedure gets the 58 but you sound like you have it right. After searching google and researching a bit, I conclude that the 58 goes on the second OR the more expensive procedure.
