I'm a newly certified CPC-A.
I'm not working as a coder but am trying to gain knowledge and insight.
I'm inquiring as to what to expect when coding an OP note for a physician.
Will I have to code ICD-9 for a condition and/or just code(s) the procedure?
What about multiple procedures, i.e, bi lateral external fixator removals with rod insertion?

I'll give an example and hope someone will chime in.

The procedure: removal of bilateral foot and tibia multiplanar external fixators after successful correction of equinus deformities.
