    Can someone help me find a code for an arthrodesis of the calcaneocuboid joint - no other joints were fused? Thank you

    I was thrown off because in the Coders Desk Reference it had stated that several joints were being fused. thank you for your response.

    What code did you come up with for this? I see your notes but not the answer. I have the same procedure and have not been able to come up with a code for this procedure.

    Thanks
