Need some coding advice on this surgical procedure ORIF Periprosthetic Femur Fracture
Need to code this for the Assistant Surgeon Charges by [Dr B]

Patient had a Hemiarthroplasty for Hip Fracture on 4-1-2021 [27236] by Doctor B

New fall on 5-26, Diagnosis: Periprosthetic Fracture Around Internal Prosthetic Hip Joint

Dr A now [primary surgeon] for this procedure Orif of the Periprosthetic Femur Fracture on 5-27
Dr B [now Assistant on this case]

Question on the new procedure for the ORIF and diagnosis coding ?????
Primary office [Dr A] is coding this as CPT 27507, with DX M97.01XA

Need to see if the ortho billers reading this, agree with these codes.
I think the fracture needs to be identified first, S72.91XA, then M97.01XA
Nor sure about the 27507 for the procedure ???

Also, will I use modifier 79 for the Assistant B charges since he jut did the first surgery on 4-1

Hope I am presenting this scenario clearly,

Thanks
