I desperately need a CPT code for a Trapziectomy [wrist] that is being done this week.
Looking at CPT 25332?

Can someone confirm or advise if there is a different code?

Thanks so much,
CW

A trapeziectomy is the removal of a small bone at the base of the thumb so I'd look at either code 25445 or 25447 (depending on the actual op note from the doc).

The trapezium is a carpal bone which would make the procedure a carpectomy which is code 25210.
