    Default Gamma Nail

    Doc is to perform a right hip ORIF with gamma nail for pathologic fracture.

    Would I use 27236 or is something else more appropriate.

    If it is a intertrochanteric, peritrochanteric, or subtrochanteric femoral fracture, I would use 27245 for the gamma nail or intramedullary implant (IM nailing).

    I agree - we use 27245 for the gamma nail as well, it's more specific than the 27236.
