Central slip repair with pinning of the PIP

  1. Default Central slip repair with pinning of the PIP
    Medical Coding Books
    Pt had a fixed boutonniere deformity after a fall...
    Dr did a central slip repair (26426) w/ pinning through the PIP. My dr wants to use 20650 for the pin, but I don't think this is correct since it includes application of skeletal traction...
    Should I use the 20650 w/ a 52? or another code??
    Thanks so much - and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! (OR HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!)

  2. Default
    Anyone??
