I need help with the above. Dr. performed an open reduction and internal fixation intraarticular, three part distal radius fracture. He also performed a resection of posterior and anterior interosseous nerves. He make no mention of a neuroma in his OP report, so I'm not sure if I can code 64782, 64783. I greatly need help this CPT code(s). :confused:

The portion of OP report on this reads:

The anterior interosseous nerve was then identified and resected. A small window was made in the interosseous membrane and the posterior interosseous nerve was resected as a wrist denervation procedure.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
