    Hi,

    I'm hoping someone can help me with this code I can't seem to locate a code for a Chevron Osteotomy of the Olecranon, this is the first time I've seen one of my Doctor's perform this procedure.

    Thanks in advance for all helpful suggestions,
    Sandra

    I would have to say 24147 partial excision bone, olecranon process. Because the definition of osteotomy is cutting a bone. The only other suggestion I have would be unlisted 24999 with the fee from 24400.
    Hope that helps.

    I am not sure if that is correct, since ostectomy is excision, while osteotomy is cutting the bone. I can't find a code for the cutting of bone...

    Thanks for your help, I think that is a great code choice.
