    Default orthopaedic or family practice coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    My employers have offered me a choice of doing either the orthopaedic or family practice coding for our office. I have been in orthopaedics for the last year, but did family practice before that and both have pros and cons. Which would you choose and why?
