Thread: Code for a lateral hip heterotopic bone

  1. #1

    Default Code for a lateral hip heterotopic bone

    AAPC: Back to School
    What would be the dx code for a heterotopic bone of the hip? Is it an bone exostois 729.5? Thanks for the help

    The only icd 733.99 will suit for heterotropic hip [bones that do not belong to the main skeleton but that regularly develop in certain organs, the heart, penis, clitoris, and snout of some animals.] and exostosis is bony projection arising from any bone that develops from cartilage.
