    Default Hip Fracture

    Just wanted a second opinion here. My Dr asked for a CPT for IM Nail for Hip Fracture. I was thinking (depending on site of hip fracture):

    27236
    27244
    27248

    Any comments/suggestions??

    I'm looking at 27245. Lay description mentions the IM nailing.

    I agree with the above post- 27245, as it describes "with intramedullary implant".

    We use 27245 for IM nailling / gamma nail.

    Hope that helps!!!
