diagnosis code - avulsion fx-spur

    Default diagnosis code - avulsion fx-spur
    New Call-to-action
    We have a patient , that has an avulsion fracture of their Haglunds deformity - would it accurate to code this S92.031 (rightfoot) for this ?
    It is not of the tuberosity? or would it be more accurate to just use M77.31?

    Stuck on this one, Help!
