Title of Procedure:
Total Knee Replacement with Computer Navigation and Bone Grafting of Tibia

Diagnosis:
Osteoarthritis 715.36
Osteopenia 733.90

Coded 27447 [TKR]
20985 [Computer Navigation]

As for the bone grafting, here is a brief description taken from op note: Tibia was noted to be osteopenic, particularly on medial side. Oseophytes had been removed from patella,
femur and bone grafting was done on tibia with patient's own cancellous graft.

Question: Can the Bone grafting prodedure be coded for this patient? What if other grafting material is also used with the patient's own cancellous graft?

Thanks for any and all replies,
CW
