    yes if both were performed by the anesthesiologist, 01402 is anesthesia svcs for TKR, and 64447 (femoral nerve block) is an addt'l procedure for post-op pain mgmt, so you can bill 64447 w/mod. 59 and dx:338.18 in addition to 01402.
    I hope this helps

    If general was the main source of anesthesia for the surgery, and the block was specifically for post op pain management, then you can bill 64447 with a 59 modifer.
