    is there a 'revision' code for this(treatment of tibial fracture) procedure? the dr took out the original rod (20680) and put in a nail to replace.

    I don't see a revision code for that so I would just use 27759-78, I'm assuming is in global.

    no it was done by another dr (possibly in the same hospital) but the original surgery didn't take and he had to "re-do" and in doing so took out the original implant and replaced with another.

    I was hoping there might be a revision CPT code but I will bill out with the original code w/o any modifers.
