Thread: Heterotopic ossification removal

  1. #1

    Default Heterotopic ossification removal

    Trying to code removal of a heterotopic ossification on the greater trochanter. I'm planning on using 726.91 for a dx but unsure what CPT to use. Would this fall under an unspecified code(such as 27299) or is there a specific code for this? The descriptions for the other osteotomy codes don't seem to describe what was done, which was simply dissection down to the greater trochanter and excision of the heterotopic spike with an osteotome.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Look at codes 27070-27071.

    I agree with the CPT range but would suggest you consider 728.13 as a possible dx. Jeri
