Endoprosthesis to Total Hip.

  1. Default Endoprosthesis to Total Hip.
    Medical Coding Books
    Doc is removing the endoprosthesis and converting to a total hip. Would I use 27132?

  2. Default
    Is the endoprosthesis from a hemiarthroplasty? If so 27132 is the code.

    That was was for a hemi and I have another one today where the patient broke the femoral neck, fracture was sent with internal fixation, and now doc is revising to a total.

    Would this be the same instance or a different code because of the traumatic fracture?

  4. Default
    27132 for the hemi to total and 27130 for the fracture to total.
