Thread: Ortho Coding

    Default Ortho Coding

    I am looking for a CPT for placement of traction pins, 1 femoral & the other is calcaneous. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    There is CPT code 20650, reading, Insertion of wire or pin with applicationof skeletal traction, including removal. However, this is only billable if it is completely separate from other surgery.
